Melissa Gallagher's immune system nearly crashed when she caught the Epstein-Barr virus. Her grueling recovery introduced her to holistic treatments and fueled her passion to learn more about alternative approaches to health?so much so that Melissa obtained a B.A. at Florida State University and a master's in Holistic Nutrition as well as a Doctorate of Naturopathy from Clayton College of Natural Health. She is a Vodder-trained certified lymphatic drainage therapist and certified in treating all aspects of lymphedema including upper extremity, trunk, and lower extremity
lymphedema in men, women and children.

She and her staff of licensed practitioners also perform an array of holistic health and wellness treatments, including weight-loss programs, hormone balancing, food-sensitivity testing, natural therapies for cancer and autoimmune disorders, lymph therapy, scar reduction laser therapy, and ear candling.
