About Coach Meli

Hi I’m Meli, your new Physical Therapist!Here’s a little about me: I graduated with my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Samuel Merritt University in Oakland, California in 2020 where I learned advanced manual therapy techniques, exercise prescription and expertise in orthopedic and neurological conditions. Also, my experience as a competitive body builder has helped me develop first hand experience with high level strength and conditioning. As a student I had a positive impact on the bodybuilding community by promoting a more healthy and wholesome approach to training and nutrition. My philosophy was highlighted in this 2018 article on heathy body building.https://www.samuelmerritt.edu/news/championing-healthy-habits-bodybuildingI love treating a wide range of patients, from high level athletes to pelvic floor heath. My preferred modalities of treatment include a combination of exercise prescription, hands on manual therapy and dry needling.It’s an honor to have the opportunity to be included in the Squatch community and I can’t wait to connect with you all!As a token of my gratitude I am offering 10% of my package services of 4+ sessions for all Squatch members for the months of June and July!
