New Beginnings

Today, I deliver some bittersweet news. 

 I close my massage practice on September 5, 2020.  

For the past 12 years I’ve been practicing massage on some of the most wonderful people.  Many of you have continued to see me through many maternity leaves and three different locations.  I could not be more blessed and thankful for the opportunity to serve you.  Thank you.

A few of you have prepaid massage packages that are not fully redeemed.  I have set aside my last two weeks exclusively for your appointments.  I will be in touch to issue your refund.

After four years of dreaming, our family will be hitting the road for the next four months in a 26’ trailer traveling from Wisconsin to the Pacific Northwest and down the West Coast.

The pandemic has affected many of us in profound ways. For our family, we have decided to roll with this punch by spending more time nature, together as a family, with fewer possessions and get away from a Wisconsin winter.

I will continue to offer some of my services online: fertility consultations, birth preparation and infant massage.  In addition to this, I’ll be adding Montessori homeschool coaching to my online work.  I’d be thankful for your referrals. I am always here to share muscle tips and essential oil tricks. 

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your business and the opportunity to do work that I absolutely love.

Please contact me with questions.


Stefanie Melo, Holistic Life and Faith Coach
I’m Stefanie and I am here for you, mama. 

I had expectations of feeling purpose and fulfillment in motherhood. Instead, I experienced trauma, anxiety, depression, isolation and a crisis of faith. 
Feeling like I couldn't be the mom I wanted to be to my five children, I began a journey of deconstructing and challenging everything I thought I believed. It was scary and messy. It felt like heresy! It also led to a deeper faith in Jesus, more peace, and a wholeness I didn't know was possible. 

Today, I am based in Arizona where I Montessori homeschool my 5 children ages 2-10 with my husband, Hernando. I am alligned with my calling as a feminist Jesus lover and a holistic coach to help mamas who are at any point in their evolving journey of faith to reclaim a little more sparkle! 
I coach women to understand and integrate their beliefs, thoughts, and emotions to create a life that offers more clarity, more peace, more joy — a life that is simply better.
I offer a unique approach to life coaching, bringing a wealth of professional expertise including: productivity, planning, massage therapy, infant bonding, fertility enhancement, birth work, postpartum support, breastfeeding support, youth and children’s ministry and Montessori education training.
If you are looking for support that acknowledges your mind, body, spirit and human need for community, I am the coach for you!
