Melissa has a unique set of skills that make her a wonderful naturopath that can help you with a wide range of conditions. Melissa holds both a Bachelor of Naturopathy and a Bachelor of Psychology in addition to being a qualified and experienced yoga instructor. Her studies and experience in these areas have led her to develop a very rich and holistic view of the human body, human behaviour, and health. 

Melissa first came under the radar of our founder Katherine Maslen while she was a student as she received exceptionally high recommendations. Katherine then went on to personally mentor Melissa and she has been a key part of the Shift team ever since. 

In your consultation, Melissa will devote time to educating you on ways to improve your own individual health journey and discover more about yourself.  This helps to ensure positive changes occur in your overall wellness, as well as improving your quality of life.  

Melissa embraces research-based methods of scientific and traditional evidence for utilising tools such as: herbal medicine, nutrition, lifestyle coaching, and iridology in holistic treatments.  You’ll find her sessions warm, soothing, and encouraging with lots of practical take-home advice for you to implement. 

Melissa has a real passion for nutrition and even co-founded Complete Granola, balanced nutritious granola that you can purchase from us at Shift Brisbane. 

When Melissa isn’t at Shift you’ll find her gardening, taking walks in nature, and spending time with her chickens. 

Melissa truly finds joy and fulfillment in watching others grow and is an asset to anybody’s healing journey.
