Hello, friend- nice to meet you!


Melani-Schweder.jpg

I'm Melani, and I'm happy to be your guide on this healing adventure!

I'm proud to be a Certified Health Coach, Reiki Master/Teacher, and empowerment guide for those who want to live life in full color again, after hardships like chronic illness, divorce, or other struggle. My own health issues led me to dig deep into alternative/natural health and take sustainable, self-guided steps towards recovery. I am passionate about holistic methods, and my unique coaching process combines the best of my knowledge in whole-foods nutrition, Reiki, mindfulness, herbal medicine, and positive psychology. 

Over the years, I've learned a lot about various healing techniques and therapies, and I take this wide-angle approach with each and every one of my clients. I'm a big believer in colorful fruits and veggies, a vibrant spiritual practice, and the power of herbs to balance the body's systems. 

While I have a background in clinical sciences, I'm probably not your "typical" scientist. Yes, there is a lot of data out there on human metabolism, chronic viral infections, etc...but I believe there is a LOT that we haven't figured out yet. I love to play in the gray areas of life too, and I think that science and spirituality can be friends!
