Live Cell Analysis

Live Cell Analysis

Your body requires specific nutrients to be in balance and to function at its optimum.

Together we will explore your health concerns including: medical conditions, allergies, intolerances, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, and ideal weight.

These factors are all to be considered as we look at your live blood under a microscope magnified up to 1500 times. With the aid of a video camera and monitor, we can observe potential imbalances such as low levels of nutrients, fatty acids, incomplete or delayed digestion of fats and proteins along with unwanted bacterial forms.

Along with the Live Cell Analysis, you will receive a Body Composition Test using a Bio Impedience Analysis (BIA) machine.  This will determine if you are adequately hydrated, your fat mass, lean mass and cellular health scores.

You will leave this visit with a better understanding of what your specific nutritional requirements are and a personalized basic supplementation plan.

*This visit will take approximately 90 minutes. You are required to fast for 3 hours prior to your appointment, and drink 3 cups of water to ensure you are well hydrated.

Infrared Sauna Therapy

Infrared Sauna Therapy

Single sessions are available in 30, 45 and 60 minute increments.  It is recommended to start with 30 minutes and build your tolerance to longer sauna sessions.

Please bring 2-3 towels and bathing suit, shorts and a tank, or birthday suit.  We leave this totally up to you, but keep in mind that less is better to allow more skin exposure! You will have full privacy during your session.

Infrared saunas are an effective method for natural healing and prevention.

Come relax in one of our private saunas where the Full Spectrum infrared light has the ability to penetrate and activate human tissue and has a beneficial effect on numerous mechanisms in the body.  You can enjoy the relaxing soft meditative music with dim lighting and enjoy 30-60 minutes to yourself with all the health benefits infrared has to offer.

Our Full Spectrum Sauna with Chromotherapy offers:

Detoxification: Sweating is a safe and natural way to heal the body and eliminate toxins.  Infrared saunas, compared to Swedish saunas, allow you to eliminate up to 7 times more toxins.

Relaxation: The sauna promotes relaxation by balancing cortisol levels in the body.  The heat allows muscles to relax, which in turn allows you to relax and de-stress.

Pain Relief: The sauna can relieve aches and pains in the joints by increasing circulation and reducing inflammation in the body.

Weight Loss: Increased core temperature will lead to an increased heart rate, similar to exercise.  The body will then have to adjust to lower core temperature, and by doing so will burn calories.

Skin Purification: Eliminating toxins from your pores and increasing circulation will purify the skin, leading to clear, vibrant and healthy skin.

*With the Full Spectrum Sauna, the body absorbs more infrared in a single session versus a traditional Infrared Sauna.

Why “FULL” Spectrum?

Therapeutic Colour Light therapy (Chromotherapy): for physical, mental and emotional well-being.

Each wavelength does different things independently and also assist each other together: 

Near Infrared is the shortest wavelength that works more on the surface tissue (think skin rejuvenation, wound healing, cell health/rejuvenation)

MID Infrared goes deeper than near: it targets muscle- great for athletes/muscle injury, pain relief. Helps to expand blood vessels and increase circulation.

Far Infrared is the longest wavelength and penetrates the deepest. It reaches where toxins and chemicals can be stored (fat cells), assists in weight loss and heart rate.  It also helps with increased vasodilation, decreases pain, inflammation. etc

Body Composition Testing

Body Composition Testing (BIA)

Do you want to achieve Vitality, Longevity and Healthy Aging?

An in office test using a scientifically validated test known as Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA),  will give insight to your body’s current composition and needs for maximum health and energy.

What is Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA)?

BIA is a science that was originally developed for monitoring patients after surgery in a hospital setting.  You will be connected to leads on your hands and feet where the machine will pass a low voltage electrical current through your body. This is safe and painless.  The BIA machine will then print out a report that will give insight into aspects of your health such as how much fat and muscle that you have in your body, monitor your cellular health, your body hydration and energy levels.

Who May Benefit from BIA testing?

Those who want to:

  • Manage their body composition effectively
  • Increase muscle tone  and/or lose body fat
  • Support energy levels
  • Support healthy ageing
  • Support the nutrition and health of their body

What will you receive?

You will receive a 30 minute mini consultation that will include the BIA test, explanation of results and simple steps to get started to achieve your goals.  (Please do not eat for 3 hours prior to your appointment & be sure to drink a minimum of 3 cups of water)

BIA may also be used as a tool used to monitor your results over time, so that you can see how your health is improving. Your health is your greatest asset!

Energy Medicine

If you’re feeling STUCK or ungrounded, suffering from physical or emotional pain, insomnia, headaches, looking for self healing, depressed, anxious, suffer from low self esteem or seeking more peace…. Rubimed is something you should consider!

Rubimed™ is a natural modality from Europe.  It combines ancient healing knowledge with modern complementary homeopathy.   Used in Europe for over 2 decades and introduced into North America over a decade ago, the Rubimed™ remedies have been clinically proven to resolve negative health effects of psychological trauma, anxiety and stress.

How does it work?

The REBA device emits gentle frequencies to test your chakras, your physical and your emotional health for areas of energetic stress and deficiencies.  Further testing can also be used to assess energetic function of organs and the compatibility of other remedies including supplements and pharmaceuticals.

Using poly frequencies together with muscle testing, we test the four “energetic vital signs” also known as your “energetic blood pressure”: (Emotional, Mental, Physical, Causal)

Next we test your 7 Energy Centres (Chakras) to see if there are emotional conflicts and where. Each energy center represents vital points in the physical body:

  • major plexuses of nerves
  • arteries
  • veins
  • endocrine glands

Emotional conflicts are stored in the body as energy blocks and create a repetitious effect in the body. The result is a negative affect on the cells, metabolism, and Autonomic System resulting in physical symptoms.

Once a conflict is confirmed, we then further test to determine the type of emotional conflict. There are 28 different possibilities.

Next, we will go on to determine how much energy this conflict is draining from you, what age it started and the correct Rubimed remedies to take and how long to take them.

These are not classical homeopathic remedies. They are energetically aligned to the vibration of the chakra and emotions they are healing and have no interaction with any medications, supplements or other homeopathic remedies.

The objective is to permanently clear conflicts.

According to PSE, illness is associated with unresolved emotional trauma that becomes repressed into the subconscious and stored in the human subtle energy field. These unconscious emotional conflicts lead to a reduced flow of energy that contributes to physical symptoms, mental and/or emotional disorders.

A two year study conducted in 10 European clinics with 1002 cases showed an 86.5% success rate using the Rubimed™ remedies for resolving anxiety, depression, behavioural disorders, pain, adrenal burnout, sleep disorders, autonomic dysfunctions, respiratory and gastrointestinal conditions, allergies, hormonal disorders, skin conditions and stress.

What can you expect from Rubimed?

More self esteem, better handling of stress, live life more authentically, activates self healing, safe for all ages, no side effects or interactions.


I’ve suffered from Crohn’s for almost 20 years. In the last two years it had become more severe. My digestive system was not well and I wanted to try alternative treatments to help me feel well again. I also wanted to decrease my chances of Colon Cancer or needing a Bowel Dissection. Since finding Melanie, I have a much more positive outlook on health. Within a week of starting an elimination diet, I began to feel better. I now have a better understanding of how my body digests and processes what I put into it. I have also encouraged my son and husband to eat healthier as well. So far, I’ve lost 10 lbs. of body fat and feel great! While that wasn’t my primary goal…it’s an added bonus to feeling well.- 47 year old client, Female
When I first met with Melanie I was experiencing a lot of health issues including fatigue and muscle pain. Also, I was specifically in a lot of discomfort due problems with my gallbladder which caused my liver enzymes to be high. Thanks to making nutritional changes recommended by Melanie and taking a few recommended supplements, I am now feeling much better and my levels are within normal range. I noticed improvements within a few days of making some small changes. I have also noticed a decrease in muscle pain and an overall increase in my energy level. I feel confident recommending Melanie to others who are looking for guidance on their road to health and healing. Thanks Melanie!- Jessica, Windsor ON
