Nurturing your Mind-Body Connection through the healing power of touch

Melanie warmly welcomes you to Renew Yourself Wellness Centre in the heart of Geelong.

With a deep fulfilment and purpose for Massage Therapy and Organic Sustainable Skincare, Melanie brings together her extensive knowledge and qualifications in Remedial Massage, Naturopathy, Beauty Therapy, and Holistic Facial Therapy to curate a unique and rejuvenating treatment menu, featuring pamper experiences and wellness packages that combine her wealth of knowledge. With over two decades of experience in Massage therapy, Melanie is dedicated to providing exceptional care and support for your well-being.

Through her self development journey and life experiences, Melanie has come to understand the intricate layers of pain that we carry within ourselves. Like peeling back the layers of an onion, pain reveals itself in various forms—physical, spiritual, and emotional. Spiritual and emotional pain can stem from life events like grief, trauma, and long-term stress, leaving imprints in our being. These emotions can become stored or locked up, manifesting as pain & tension in the body. Melanie’s approach to massage and holistic therapy embraces the connection between mind, body, and spirit, holding space for you to let go of stress, pain and tension.

Beyond her therapeutic practices, Melanie interests include exploring diverse cultures through music, travel, food, spirituality and art. Her creative side finds expression in activities like journal writing, watercolour and pottery whilst also cherishing her bond with mother earth, embracing a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

Melanie wholeheartedly believes in the power of Nature when it comes to achieving pure skin health through chemical-free facial treatments. Guided by the wisdom of Mother Earth’s purest ingredients, her transformative experiences go beyond skincare, nurturing your skin and uplifting your spirit.

Join Melanie at Renew Yourself and embark on a path of self-care, working through body pain and rediscovering the freedom and harmony within yourself. Through her nurturing touch and intuitive understanding of the human body, Melanie can help create a renewed sense of vitality and inner peace.
