About

Holistic Energy Healing can be found in the heart of New Paltz, NY. Melissa is an intuitive integrative healer and can be found making small batches of body care products using the finest herbs and essential oils. Early in her career she embarked on an aromatherapy retreat in Provence, France and has never looked back. Her love of the healing qualities of herbs and essential oils has allowed her to create products that reflect the needs of the heart, body and soul.  Melissa has been a featured teacher at the Open Center in NY as well as an ongoing teacher for Wave Hill, a Public Garden & Cultural Center in the Riverdale section of the Bronx, NY.

When not making products or studying, Melissa can be found playing with her 2 adopted kitties and 1 rescue dog or entertaining her son in deep conversations about life.
