I help women find relief from these  common pelvic floor symptoms

What my patients have to say:

“I was having some pelvic pain for a few days that wouldn’t go away.  Just after my first session, I felt some relief later that day! She helped me figure out my issues were all related to the pelvic floor and continued to work with me as we progressed through my treatments. Working with her was really helpful in managing my symptoms!”

What my patients have to say:

“As a mom of 4, I always thought that pelvic and hip pain was just part of motherhood. I finally made the decision to make my pelvic health a priority, and I’m so glad that I did. I had heard from friends about pelvic PT and I’m so glad I finally gave it a try. Dr Mel has helped me to heal my body in ways I never thought possible!! She is so thorough and made me feel so comfortable throughout the process at all my sessions. Thank you Dr Mel!”
