Connect to your roots.

Connect to nature.

Rise to your highest potential.

Meet Melanie 

Root 2 Rise Wellness grew from my desire to help people live meaningful lives in connection with the natural world. I am a certified speech and language pathologist by trade, and worked with children in public schools, clinics, and in their home for 12 years. While I love my profession, I found within myself a deep longing to learn more about medicinal plants and explore a deeper connection with the earth. So, I enrolled in a 5-month program in Israel where I began my herbalism journey.  Following this life-changing experience, I knew I had found a new direction for my life. I went on to complete several more programs and apprenticeships in herbalism and health coaching to hone my passion, knowledge and skills.

Testimonials

Plant Talks

Shona M., Aberdeen, Scotland, UK.

I have really enjoyed taking part in Melanie's plant talk workshops. Her knowledge of plant medicine and how to forage for edibles is extensive and her enthusiasm infectious! Her upbeat personality and passion for plants makes the workshops both engaging and fun to take part in. Melanie has a hands on approach and demonstrates different techniques for making herbal infusions, tinctures, lotions and potions during the workshops.

Emotional 

Breakthrough

Consults

Michaela K., Stratford, C.T.

I had never heard of flower essences before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Now I am obsessed! The consultation was great. Melanie listened to the various things that were going on in my life and together we found a common theme and from there she was able to recommend a blend flower essences that would suit my specific needs. She put together a mantra for me to use with the flower essences. The worries and fears that were coming up in relation to what I discussed with Melanie have subsided. I feel amazing and am so grateful for Melanie!

Melanie's workshop on Ayurveda was fantastic! She covered all the bases in a fun and interactive way, although not all of Ayurveda can be explained in a hr and a half- Melanie did a great job teaching and encouraging us to try out some Ayurvedic techniques in our daily lives!
