I have been blessed with the good fortune of having treatments with Mel.  She has an innate gift to identify the physical, mental and psychic needs that affect the subtle body, and heal beyond even the known. I feel that I have visited a celestial realm and sense a renewed connection with the divine after a treatment with Mel. I highly recommend her healing treatments.
— Inez,  Inez Healing Arts


I have a degree in fine art Textiles from California College of the Arts in Oakland. My energy healing training started at age 23 and has included levels I and II of Reiki and Reiki Tummo and Reconnective Healing. I have also developed my own intuitive style of working with clients over the past 4 decades. My personal life journey including a kundalini awakening at age 16 has deepened my ability to tune into the realm of Spirit. 

I live in Berkeley with my wife Jayne and our dog Andie. Our daughter Emily lives in Pennsylvania. Her spirit and creativity are an ongoing source of inspiration.
