I have recently moved to the Bay of Plenty and after originally calling Nelson home, I am excited to explore the sunny north! After graduating from Otago in 2017 I was based in Wellington working in private practise. On top of this I contracted to the Wellington Rugby Union leading the physiotherapy aspect of the male and female High Performance Academies. I travelled with the Wellington Pride Farah Palmer Cup side for the past two seasons, and at the beginning of the year was blessed to travel with the Tonga Mens 7s team to South America for the Worlds 7s Challenger series.

Mel has been working as a musculoskeletal Physiotherapist developing her skills and learning from each patient she meets.
Mel loves connecting with people and working with them to not just reduce their pain but to improve their biomechanics and overall function. Teaching people to build body awareness through connecting with themselves and encouraging them to pursue a lifestyle that nourishes their body is one of her favourite aspects of being a Physio.
Mel believes that the body has the ability to often heal itself when given the right tools and approached in holistic way.
Mel has seen a variety of conditions in her experience as a Physio. Working with adolescents in high schools to post orthopaedic rehabilitation in the elderly and everything in between.
Mel has also recently completed further study in Craniosacral therapy. View details »
