Melinda Doden, LMT, Advanced Ortho-Bionomy® Practitioner, Advance Ortho-Bionomy® Instructor, Former President -Society of Ortho-Bionomy Intl.®
I have been a student of health, wellness and consciousness for most of my adult life. I earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Kinesiology from C.U. Boulder in 1988 and began studying massage therapy in 1993. Over the years, I have continued to learn different modalities of bodywork and healing. I hold certificates in Massage Therapy, Shiatsu, Iridology, Traditional Japanese Massage, Neuromuscular, Reiki and Ortho-Bionomy® and am currently pursuing a Functional Medicine Health Coaching Certification. I found Ortho-Bionomy® in 2003 and have not looked back since. I have been teaching Ortho-Bionomy® since 2012, maintain a private Ortho- practice in Paonia, Colorado and currently teach both online and in the Salt Lake City Area .
I find my work both challenging and rewarding and I deeply enjoy sharing Ortho-Bionomy® with others, whether as clients or students. I have a passion for understanding how science, the energetic body, consciousness and the physical body are in relationship and teaching an integrated approach to OB and anatomy in a way that is engaging, accessible and empowering to a wide range of learners.
In addition to my studies in health wellness and the body, I am a 30+ year student of meditation and consciousness, I have engaged with and investigated various practices and traditions and have been teaching meditation for 20 years. I also enjoy hiking, camping, gardening, music festivals and spending time with friends, family and my dog.
