Melissa A. Stone
Intuitive Healer and Tendering Loving Care (TLC) Expert
Melissa is the founder of an idea of a full service holistic; fitness, wellness and skin care center all served up with the spa fun atmosphere in a serene location amongst the redwoods and flowering gardens. She created her dream by opening the first of its kind in the Santa Cruz Mountains, in 2003.
An expert in the field of tender loving care (TLC) and stress reduction. Melissa, has led many classes, workshops and written many articles on the subject of holistic care. Including a quarterly column in Belly Dance Magazine called Fitness for the Dancer from 2007 until the magazine's end in 2011.
In 2008, she was honored to be asked to produce and co-host a radio show on KSCO 1080AM called Radiance and Chocolate until May 2009.
At a young age Melissa, knew she would write a book about her journey and started to journal. In 2008, she self published a book The Key To Life is Balance. A journal of her experiences and more! It shares her journey to enlightenment through finding balance after finding herself homeless at 36 with her 5 year old child. As Melissa continued to self produce self help content in 2011 she created The Balance Tool Kit.
Melissa is currently working on The Balance Cleanse, a balance 7 day juice cleanse meal plan and information about how herbs and food help the body with wellness and balance. This cleanse is inspired by a conversation Melissa had with with Jack Aalanne himself. As Melissa continues to remove her own blocks around abundance she is documenting while creating content for a second book The Art of Life is Manifestation.
At the age of 9 Melissa would create spa treatments from food from the kitchen and herbs from the garden when she felt alone and sad. Her teens and early twenties were spent overweight, depressed and lacking in self esteem due to lack of family and community nurturing and support. Becoming homeless was her rock bottom and when she made the decision to go within and make life changes. She came back to her intuition and found a meditation practice that served her. Now her life long journey is to help others find this easily and have fun while doing it.
Melissa graduated from Cypress Health Institute in 2003. Where she has integrated this comprehensive education of massage training and polarity, with her Fitness background and her intuitive knowledge into a holistic practice she personally uses and teaches.
