The Harrison Methodology – mindset strategies for optimal physical wellness

Melina has 25 years’ experience as an osteopath and is director of her own physical health clinic in Berkshire. Her busy clinic see’s 100’s of patients every week. The Harrison Methodology was born out of Melina working with thousands of patients with injuries and dysfunctional physical health.  This wealth of clinical experience demonstrated to Melina that variations in health and physical wellness, (regardless of age and current diagnosis) are largely due to the choices we make regarding our health and life style. However, the most important observation was that these choices are governed by mindset in relation to how we feed our bodies, how we exercise our bodies and how we rest our bodies.
Melina says; “Great health advice is freely available, most of us just struggle with actually implementing it. We want to eat healthy food, but just can’t, we buy a gym membership but hardly attend, you get the idea? I totally understand this, I’ve worked with 1,000’s of amazing, successful, intelligent people who struggle with these things every single day. Given this, I have made my life’s work an analysis of how and why we make the health choices we do and more importantly how we can change the ones that are not serving us well. With these finding’s and my many years of clinical practice I have created an easy, doable, realistic method that people can use to make healthier choices and thereby enhance their wellbeing, health and happiness. This work is called The Harrison Methodology. Welcome to my method.”
Melina works with individuals, organisations, delivers lectures and workshops and runs wellness retreats. She has also collaborated with New York Times bestselling author Sophie Uliano to co-create and co-host the Hello Gorgeous retreats in Miami and California.

The Harrison Clinic

Melina opened The Harrison Clinic in 2003. This is a multidisciplinary clinic with a team of accomplished practitioners. The Harrison Clinic provides osteopathy, cranial osteopathy, physiotherapy, sports massage, acupuncture, Pilates and hosts the Hello Wellness program to a broad range of patients. Melina wanted to create a clinic that is second to none in its professionalism but had a warm relaxed ambiance for patients to feel relaxed in.
As director, it has always been Melina’s belief that input from a team of practitioners with a range of specialisms, will provide patients with the effective, thorough and lasting recovery they want. At her clinic, you can be treated by one practitioner of your choice or by a selected team.
The Harrison Clinic continues to thrive being one of the busiest and fastest growing clinics of its type in Berkshire. Her clinic is delighted to support local events and sports clubs and dance schools.
