Melissa Hiscox is passionate about the innate natural healing capacity we each have. She started her professional life after completing a Bachelor of Commerce at university, which then led her into a professional career in human resource management. Doctors were unable to provide effective treatment for Melissa when she was diagnosed with an immune system deficiency that resulted in low immunity, extreme fatigue and ongoing sore throats. She looked within and found the courage to seek out her own pathway to wellness, her entire focus shifting direction as she was led along a life-changing journey of discovery in self-healing.
Inspired by her personal story and experiences, Melissa has written the book Journeying to Wellness to guide readers along the steps involved in discovering their own unique journey to optimal wellness, together with formulating a nine-week mentoring program to engage with and support those navigating their own wellness journeys. With a genuine passion for energetic medicine, Melissa has trained in Qigong, Reiki and Kinesiology. She facilitates Open Sky Qigong classes in person and online, facilitates ChiChild classes (qigong for children), established and co-facilitates the Beach Qigong workshop series, assists at Qigong workshops and retreats and facilitates one-on-one qigong consultations.
