Our Therapists

Melanie Menendez

I am a holistic therapist, passionate about helping people to enhance their quality of life through the use of natural therapies. My professional and spiritual path started in 2012 when I trained as a reiki practitioner. An interest in complementary therapies develops into a passion. I love what I do and that is the key to my work. It has become a way of life.

I have continued with bodywork training specialising in:
Clinical/sports massage treating chronic pains and conditions, such as: Neck pain & Whiplash, Headaches & Migraines, Low Back Pain, Frozen shoulder, Sciatic, Tennis/Golfer’s elbow, Hip and pelvic pain, stress &anxiety. Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Bach flower remedy and Craniosacral therapy.

I have developed an extensive client base in Brighton over the years, and I treat each client in a sensitive and holistic manner, taking into account all aspects of their life with the aim to restore balance and allow the body to relax and heal itself.
