Lori is a very wonderful massage therapist and wellness coach.
She is an excellent listener and communicator. She patiently listens to my life stories and she clearly explains how my past experiences and emotions have negatively or positively impacted my mental and physical health. Lori tailors each session to my needs. She is genuinely interested in what my immediate and long-term issues are and she takes an interest in resolution. She helps me address the real cause or the root of my problems, not just the symptoms.
Lori is very knowledgeable. She has expertise from many different health areas. She offers tons of coaching advice on how to manage my stress level and avoid unhealthy habits or patterns that are no longer serving my needs.
I like that Lori offers a very safe and comfortable environment. She is very gentle and compassionate. She never rushes me nor judges me. Her room is very peaceful and relaxing. To enhance my healing sessions, Lori applies wonderful aromatherapy oils on my problem areas. These oils seem to not only relieve tension and stress in my body, but they also seem to improve my mood.
I am extremely thankful that I have found Lori. Her therapy has greatly improved my comfort and stress level in a very short time. I would highly recommend her because she can bring great improvement in both physical and emotional wellbeing to anyone.

I was having pretty severe discomfort in my wrists caused by increased exercise and lifting heavier weights. I decided to try massage to get some relief and contacted Lori since I am a member at the Bladium. I thought I would just be getting my arms worked on but I got so much more. Before we even got started, Lori talked to me about my whole body- from digestion to stress levels to any other aches I may have been feeling. During the massage Lori talked me through some stressful situations going on in my life. This coupled with the use of oils to relieve swelling and discomfort made my whole body feel like it had been recharged. The next day I awoke with no swelling in my wrists at all. I haven’t lessened the amount I have been working out and I have steadily increased the weight I lift and I still have no discomfort. I feel like Lori not only healed my wrists but she healed me emotionally as well. I am so glad that I went to her and I will continue to do so.

I came in to see Lori on recommendation from my companion after suffering from anxiety and physical discomfort. The brilliance of my experience with Lori was her ability to suggest lasting changes to help me deal with my problems on a recurring basis. Besides offering me a crucial moment of serenity in the middle of my day, she was able to understand the deeper root of my problem and tease out patterns I can address moving forward. I’m super grateful for my experience and would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone.
What I took away from my session with Lori was an ability to breathe more deeply and a sense of being closer to myself. She held a nonjudgmental space for me to express what was going on in my life. With great attunement, she reflected back things I was saying and asked me questions that helped me to deepen my personal inquiry. She suggested a few simple, practical tools to support what I named as valuable to me. And then I got on the table to receive her gentle, intuitive touch. She used aroma oils and sprays with which my body resonated. Lori’s aromablends, her touch and, most importantly, her Presence helped me to empty out – to empty out the tensions and beliefs to which I was clinging – so that I could experience myself freshly as a spacious, clear and well Being.
Thank you, thank you.

What did you like about the meditation. Workshops?
I like the idea of having the time to meditate about my inner being and my outside goals. Setting a time to get together with a support group of friends, it is just a reminder to always advocate for myself and others. Meditation workshop has encourage me to focus on the moment, to share and listen about personal feelings and to learn forms of relaxation. I enjoyed to always leave the workshop with a positive message.
How did the vision board help you?
The vision board was a fun, exhilarating and thoughtful exercise. The idea of putting together part of myself on a material was just an outline about who I am and what do I want. This vision exercise helped me to picture my soul and mind in a direction road of accomplishments.
What were some of your smart goals and did you achieve them.
Some of my smart goals have always been related to myself, my family, and my career; at times in different order. However, I consider to have accomplished some of my goals with focus, persuasion and a good attitude. Whether it is exercise, be a stay-at-home mom, going back to school, etc. the set of smart goals most always be part of my life.
How would my work help other moms?
As a professional and a mom with a caliber of life experience, your wisdom and work would always allow others to find more about themselves and to help them focus more on a particular need. In addition, your direction would assist others to comfortably guide themselves through a healthy lifestyle.
Why would others want to take the workshops?
Because it is a healthy support group for everyone in which people are encourage to advocate more about themselves, families or other meaningful needs in order to attain a better quality of life.
“A moment of meditation it is a privilege”.

A sense of: Friendship, mindfulness, peacefulness, resilience, laugh, healing, relaxation, expression, awareness, etc.

“Over the past five years, I have had the privilege of getting to know Lori Melero, both as a friend, a fellow parent, and an attendee of her workshops. She is a strong yet gentle soul who always comes from a place of healing, growth, inclusion and action. Her calm and positive nature creates a space that allows people to find peace of mind and generate thoughts and ideas about their present and future. She has a gift for asking insightful questions, prompting others to think deeply about their needs, goals and way of being in this world. I have seen how she inspires others to achieve their dreams and she has done this for me as well! I highly recommend working with Lori as a coach and/or attending her workshops. She is wonderful!
