About Melissa Piercell:
A New Leaf – Naturopathic Care
Melissa Piercell graduated from The University of Windsor with an honours degree in Neuroscience. From here, she decided to further her education by completing the four-year Naturopathic Doctor program at The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. To achieve the Naturopathic Doctor title, Melissa passed two sets of licensing exams as well as The Ontario Naturopathic Board Exams.
Today, Melissa strives to encourage her patients to take an active role in their health in order to enjoy a balanced lifestyle. The services that she provides for her patients include Nutritional Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Botanical Medicine, Homeopathy, Physical Medicine, Lifestyle Counselling, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, Reiki and Bowen Therapy. She practices in an eclectic way, using all of her training tools to provide the best care for her patients, young and old.
She currently works part-time with national athletes at Canadian Sport Institute Ontario. It is through specialized nutritional programs and individualized supplementation protocols that she helps these athletes achieve their medaling goals.
She lectures at University of Toronto, York University, Running Rooms across the GTA, and for corporate Lunch-and-Learns in Toronto.
Melissa’s full-time practice is located in the offices at the back of the Nutrition House in the concourse level of the TD Centre. The clinic’s hours of operation are 7:30 to 6:00 daily. Most of her clients are surprised to discover that they have 100% health coverage for Naturopathic services.
Melissa has a special interest in motivating her patients to improve their lifestyle and performance, by making changes that are long-term and realistic. As an avid runner herself, she stresses the importance of remaining well nourished while active.
