Live Cell Analysis

Live Blood Cell Analysis is an educational tool used as a proactive approach to health.  Although not diagnostic, it can be used to observe subtle changes within the body to help guide us towards improved long-term health.

With a single drop of blood from your finger, we explore your health concerns including medical conditions, allergies, intolerances, vitamin + 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.

Together we view your live blood on a monitor and can observe potential imbalances and warning signs such as low levels of nutrients, fatty acids, and antioxidants, parasitic and fungal indicators, incomplete or delayed digestion of fats and proteins, unwanted bacterial forms and more!

In addition to the Live Cell Analysis, you will receive a Body Composition Test using a Bio Impedance Analysis (BIA) machine.  This will determine your hydration level, fat mass, lean mass, and cellular health scores.

You will leave this visit with a better understanding of your internal terrain health, nutritional requirements, and a personalized basic supplementation plan.

* 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

Infrared saunas are an effective method for natural healing and prevention.  The Full Spectrum infrared light can penetrate and activate human tissue with a beneficial effect on numerous mechanisms in the body such as:

Detoxification: Sweating is a safe & natural way to eliminate toxins & heal the body. Compared to Swedish saunas, infrared allows you to eliminate up to 7 times more toxins.

Relaxation: Heat allows muscles to relax, which in turn allows you to relax, de-stress and help balance cortisol levels.

Pain Relief & Muscle Injury Repair: 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. (up to 600 calories in only 30 minutes!)

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

During your private session, you will enjoy 30-60 minutes by yourself with relaxing meditative music, chromotherapy (colour light therapy), and all the health benefits infrared has to offer.

It is recommended to start with 30 minutes and build your tolerance to longer sauna sessions.

Please bring 2-3 towels, a water bottle, a bathing suit, shorts +tank top or a 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.

Body Composition Testing

Body Composition Testing (BIA)

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

Our in-office test known as Bio Impedance Analysis (BIA) is a scientifically validated test that will give insight into your body’s current composition and needs for maximum health and energy.

The test is quick, safe, and painless.  You will be connected to leads on your hands and feet where the machine will pass a low-voltage electrical current through your body.

The BIA machine will then print out a report that will give insight into aspects of your health such as your hydration, fat mass, muscle mass, cellular health, indicators of potential deficiencies of vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids, toxicity levels, and energy levels.

Who Will 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 aging
  • 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, an explanation of your results and simple steps to get started to achieve your goals.

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.

**To Prepare for your appointment, please do not eat for 3 hours before your appointment & be sure to drink a minimum of 3 cups of water





Why use Biofeedback?

The American Medical Association states that 80-90% of illness is rooted in stress. Stress comes in many forms and can affect not only our emotional well-being but can also affect our physical health.

Physical effects of stress could appear as: headaches, high blood pressure, sleep problems, weakened immune system, illness, digestive issues, hormonal imbalance, injury/pain, food sensitivities, allergies, and much more.

Biofeedback is used for Stress Reduction (physical and emotional), Pain Management, Brainwave Training, and Muscle Re-education.


How Does Biofeedback Work?

The biofeedback device tunes into your body and identifies what your stressors and imbalances are.  It measures the body’s electrical output and identifies stressors in the body at the electromagnetic level.  It measures stress parameters, like skin moisture, temperature, and Electro-Physiological Reactivity (EPR).

By detecting these electrical imbalances, we can use the device to rebalance, retrain and re-educate the body to heal itself and recover from those stressors.

How can Biofeedback help to improve your health?

The body is 100% electrical. A vast number of physiological processes are beneath our conscious awareness, making them by definition subtle. For example, we are not directly aware of our muscle tension as it builds, nor are we aware of the enzymes released from our pancreas, or the changes in our brain waves.

Every action involves some sort of electrical, chemical, quantic, photonic, or other energy transfer. These subtle energy interactions are in fact physiological actions and reactions to electrical stimuli, which can be detected by the biofeedback device and then trained /rebalanced for better control or energetic balance.

What can you expect during a Bio Feedback Session?

Sensors will be placed on your wrists, ankles, and head.

The system will simultaneously detect and record information about the body’s reactions to over 11,000 subtle stress-related signatures and physiological parameters.  It uses electrical calculations which may be important indicators of wellness.

Using Biofeedback training and balancing programs, subtle electromagnetic waveforms are used to help to induce deep relaxation and stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms.

When the body is provided with true, healthy patterns, stressful influences will be removed. By reducing the stressor’s disruptive effects,  the body can begin its natural healing processes.

All of this is done while you sit back and relax in a reclining chair.

What can you expect after a session?

  • Improved energy
  • Muscle relaxation
  • Lower stress levels
  • Deeper sleep
  • Pain reduction
  • The overall sense of whole-body wellness
  • Improved attention and focus
  • Improved digestion
  • Decrease in food sensitivities/allergies
  • More content with life/ happier/ hopeful
  • Increased libido
  • Improved immune function

Like a muscle, it can take time and consistency to build that strength and a new way of being. The session focuses on the imbalances found in the initial session as well as any new stressors that present themselves.

Unsupervised Biofeedback Focus Session

60 Minute Session:  $75.00 plus HST

  1. Stress

Energy Medicine

Are you feeling stuck or ungrounded?

If you’re suffering from physical or emotional pain, headaches, depression, anxiety, or low self esteem …. Sensamed is for you!

Sensamed™ is a natural modality from Europe.  It combines ancient healing knowledge with modern complementary homeopathy.   These homeopathic remedies are clinically proven to resolve negative health effects of psychological trauma, anxiety, and stress.

What can you expect from Sensamed?

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

How does it work?

Using a REBA device, gentle frequencies are used to test your physical & emotional health for areas of energetic stress and deficiencies.   The low-frequency sound waves match the delta, theta, alpha, and beta waves in the human brain. Each type of brain wave relates to specific behavioral and emotional capacities.

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

We then test your 7 Chakra Energy Centres which correlate with major plexuses of nerves, arteries, veins, and endocrine glands in the body.

Past emotional conflicts are stored in the body as energy blocks and create a repetitious effect in the body. This leads to a negative effect on the cells, metabolism, and Autonomic Nervous System resulting in physical symptoms.

Together, we can determine what physical and/or emotional areas of your body need support and which Sensamed homeopathic remedies are needed to restore balance and well being.

The objective is to permanently clear conflicts. For optimal physical, mental, and emotional health with a 86.5% success rate!

Sensamed™ remedies can be used for resolving anxiety, depression, behavioral disorders, pain, adrenal burnout, sleep disorders, autonomic dysfunctions, respiratory and gastrointestinal conditions, allergies, hormonal disorders, skin conditions and stress.

Why wait to feel like your optimal self?  Let Sensamed help restore your physical and emotional balance!

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis

Are you mineral Deficient or Toxic?

With proper interpretation of mineral ratios we can identify how systems of the body are functioning on a foundational level. Imbalances in mineral ratios as well as heavy metal toxicity can be contributing factors in:

  • Low energy levels
  • Chronic Stress
  • Weight gain or blood sugar imbalance
  • Emotional disorders
  • Digestive disorders

What is Hair Mineral Analysis?

HMA is a screening test that measures the levels of 35 essential minerals and toxic metals.

Minerals in the body are involved in almost all enzyme reactions, metabolic activity, and detoxification cycles.

Optimal mineral balance is vital for the effective absorption and proper function of nutrients and vitamins.

Improper mineral balance has been linked to chronic fatigue, weight gain/loss, headaches, depression, osteoporosis, and malabsorption.

What do we screen for?

Minerals screened include calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, copper, zinc, manganese, selenium, iron, and cobalt.

Toxic metal screening includes lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, nickel, and aluminum.

This information, along with dietary and nutritional evaluations, will provide the data needed for a nutritional balancing program to establish and maintain optimal levels of wellness.

By correcting tissue mineral levels and ratios with proper diet, supplementary nutrients and lifestyle modifications, many physical and behavioral health conditions can be prevented or reversed.


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
