Melissa Bellefontaine is a Medical QiGong instructor, practitioner of Higher Realm Healing, mom of 4 amazing children & now Nana of two beautiful grandson`s. She lives & works in Chezzetcook, Nova Scotia close to the community where she was born and raised. After experiencing a personal life changing event in 2006, Melissa was left with many questions. She became a a jet setter, traveling down some unfamiliar roads in search of answers. Melissa`s journey, which initially began as a personal quest, eventually brought her to the teachings of Medical QiGong. As she discovered the wisdom in this ancient art, she soon realized the new found knowledge she received through her studies was not to be kept exclusively for self healing but, was to be shared with others. Melissa became a certified instructor in 2010 & now assist others along their path of transformation.
From the age of thirteen and throughout her adulthood, Melissa suffered regularly from migraines. Medical QiGong ignited her interest in the body’s natural ability to self heal & prompted her to discover what we can do to make ourselves as healthy as possible. Melissa believes that although we are birthed with a constitution that is a mix of our parents genetics, there is still a great deal that is within our control, that can have an impact on whether we live a life filled with health & vitality or whether we suffer from pain & disease. When we remain open & in a state of expectation, possibilities are infinite. Melissa’s classes offer techniques to heal the body at the physical, emotional, mental & spiritual levels. Melissa believes disease is a function of bodily systems being out of balance and when we do what is necessary to bring the body back into balance, our health is restored. This can be done by thinking right, breathing right, eating right, receiving the proper amount of sleep and exercising regularly.
passionate about Medical QiGong & the opportunity it offers individuals to
become proactive in their self care, Melissa`s belief that we are ever evolving
beings brought her to the discovery of a new form of healing work during the
summer of 2012. The new found information created a shift for her on many levels. While on training for M.Q. in Kauai, a friend handed her a book
to read called The Reconnection by Dr. Eric Pearl. She wasn’t able to put the book down & finished reading it
within the day. After arriving back home, Melissa scheduled an appointment to have her own Reconnection with Wanda Amos, a well known energy practitioner from the area. The session left Melissa with an overall sense of peace & a deep inner knowing that energy work, including hands on healing, would always be a part of her life`s path. As Melissa continued to evolve, she decided in 2016 that it was time to train with Wanda Amos & she became a practitioner of Higher Realm Healing. Melissa is honored to be a catalyst in healing during sessions with her clients.
Melissa has been the organizer of the Alternative Health & Healing Arts Fall Festival from 2013-2018, a weekend event that brought together practitioners of complimentary medicine, who could share with the community, their wisdom & expertise in their field of knowledge. With much gratitude to her Medical QiGong teacher, Master Leone, for his teachings on non attachment, Melissa was able to recognize when the Festival had served its purpose & accept that with it`s ending, something new would emerge. Melissa recently built a studio where she continues to bring practitioners & the community together ( see calendar for upcoming events).
