Mel joined the Royal Air Force at the age of 26 and was later injured, taking 5 years to be diagnosed with a Labral Tear of the hip, Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI) and further complications. Some of the subsequent health issues included chronic fatigue, unstable pelvis, joint pain, depression and anxiety.
Over the years, Mel began to learn about health, to understand why her body was not functioning optimally and therefore not healing. She embraced the concept behind the World Health Organisation's (WHO) definition of health in 1948 "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity".
Repeatedly, Mel saw sick and injured friends going through similar healing journeys, taking years to learn about health and wellbeing, implementing it in their own lives and this is why she decided to support others on their own journey, to reduce the time it takes for them to truly thrive again.
Mel offers free content on her YouTube channel and free products, online courses and 1-2-1 coaching for individuals and businesses and is available for group talks. Retreats will be starting in 2019.
