Melissa Ricker is a certified bodyworker, yoga instructor, and lecturer on Integrative health. A graduate of the Western Institute of Neuromuscular Therapy.
Ricker’s path toward becoming a healer and educator began in 2000 when she was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis. Hardly able to move and plagued by chronic pain, her last hope was a strategic combination of yoga and massage. She has since cured her auto immune disorder through Integrative medicine.
In 2006 Ricker became a certified yoga instructor with the goal of helping others find health – both physically and emotionally. She then decided to compliment her knowledge of yoga with a bodywork certification in 2007. Educated in Sports massage, Pre/Peri natal massage, Lymphatic Drainage and Oncology massage, Ricker has chosen to focus on medical modalities complimenting the Integrative approach to healing.
Now a major part of the Integrative Medicine Clinic, Ricker is committed to educating others about their bodies, as she works to help them find strength and healing. She believes strongly in self care through proper nutrition, movement, body work — and of course laughter being the best medicine of all.
In her years of working experience through neuromuscular therapy, Rebecca found each body to be uniquely different in how it is wired, because no two injuries are ever alike.
Rebecca believes the the body speaks in many different ways – the most common being, “pain”
She believes that the body is an interlinked system – mental, physical and emotional – and that any weaknesses or negative patterns that exists in any of these systems creates imbalances, leading to injuries.
When you come to Rebecca for treatment, she will start with your immediate areas of concern to get you on the path to healing. From there, she will use her intuitive style to uncover and heal all areas related to your injuries.
