It takes time to rewire the Nervous System.  It has taken years to get to the place you are at and takes a bit of time to rewire and re-pattern your Nervous System.  What we now know is the way to heal is through connection and being in the present moment in our body while we process in a safe environment.  We want to  be able to come out of the state of protection and into connection and to learn to feel safe again.  This is the most profound work you can do for yourself and the world.  When we learn to regulate and feel safe we can restore our innate vitality and wellbeing.  We don’t have to live in a chronic state of stress, anxiety, depression or just feeling yucky most of the time.

It has taken me over 20 years to get to where I am today.  After searching and searching and reading every book, endless counselling and other modalities it was not until I really understood what was happening in my own Nervous System and my life patterns did my life begin to really change.  

It takes dedication and patience.  Embodiment is like learning a language and it takes practice and a willingness to want to heal at the root level.

Awakening Vitality

The thing is there is nothing wrong with you. Your Nervous System has been patterned in a way that is causing all of your other systems to react.

The amazing part is this can change! You can heal! And I am dedicated to help you do this.

Meet Melissa Brown

I am a mother, partner, healer, dancer, business owner and lover of nature and beauty.

My work in this life is to help others discover their own truth and to empower and find freedom within!

I have been in the field of wellness, healing and body centered practices for 30 years. I believe all of my unique life experiences have led me to where I am today and with my experience, compassion, empathy and knowledge, I am here to assist others on their journey to vitality and wellness.

I realized that it is vital to do this together and I am grateful to walk along side each and every person I work with, while they explore the depths of their being.

We all have one thing in common. We are human beings with an embodied nervous system. We have had life experiences that have disrupted our growth and full potential. Life has all kinds of challenges and stress is at an all time high. So many of us are having difficulty feeling regulated, safe and connected. My wish for this course is that you come out feeling safe again, learn new ways to regulate your nervous system, find meaningful connections and be able to come out of surviving and into thriving.

Awakening Vitality

I am here to witness and hold space for you while you discover yourself and embody your true birthright, which is vitality, wellbeing, alignment and a resilient nervous system.

“For the first time in my life I actually felt safe in my body. My nervous system felt calm, peaceful and relaxed. It took a few days to calibrate and integrate. I tried to be still as much as possible, breathe and listen to the body. I feel hopeful and a lot of gratitude. I feel that for real, I can actually heal from this trauma. Thank you!”
