Today is a special client feature episode of Rock the Podcast with Melanie Weller! Melanie is the world’s leading expert in opening the door to health, performance and innovation through the vagus nerve, the bridge between our narratives and our physical experience. A storyteller for the human body, Melanie has an extensive background in stress management, chronic conditions, and people with who haven’t yet found success.
She now focuses on strengthening the leading edge in businesses, speakers, entertainers, athletes, artists, and medical professionals. Melanie is a Physical Therapist, Board-Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist, Certified Athletic Trainer, and Certified Exercise Expert for Aging Adults.
Jess had her own personal experience with Melanie’s healing that was incredible!
Back in November, Jess was positive for Covid-19 (luckily, a very minor case). However, she was suffering from horrible headaches. Melanie, often referred to as a magician or a body whisperer, offered to do a healing session with Jess! Melanie tapped into Jess’s energy and found that her head energy was in her foot.
Melanie was able to take Jess’s energy and move it back from her foot, into her head. Melanie was able to create a biofield form of Jess to understand what Jess’s body was trying to say, and help address the issue.
Coming from a medical background, Melanie is able to balance her clinical expertise with her intuitive healing skills.
Melanie’s work focuses on the vagus nerve, and treating that nerve as if it were a pinched nerve. The vagus nerve is incredibly important in our body. It is connected to stress, pleasure, your heart, and your digestive system. It is the reason you can absorb Vitamin B12, and it is involved with digestive enzyme secretion. The vagus nerve mediates sweating, and gives lots of sensory information from your body to your brain!
Melanie came into this field when she herself was having something of a midlife crisis. Her blood pressure was very high, she was having a lot of foot pain, and having emotional stress in her personal and professional life. One of the things she started to learn is to see patterns in the world and in our body.
Story is really just a different way of writing about science, for Melanie.
Traditional medicine and even alternative medicine didn’t work for many of the people that Melanie works with! The vagus nerve, Melanie teaches, is the bridge between our bodies and our stories. When the vagus nerve gets compressed in physical structures, it becomes compressed in energetic structure too.
Melanie works with her clients by helping them solve their problems, and opening up the space so they have the big “Aha moments!” with their own expertise. Her goal is to open up her client’s own creativity and genius!
People have the knowledge inside themselves, and they have the answers. The genius of Melanie’s work is untangling the things that are keeping them from seeing the answers.
Melanie explains that when our heroics and our desires are at odds with each other, it impairs our vision. When we’re the hero in someone else’s story at the expense of our own story, or we’re satisfying someone else’s desires at the expense of our own – those manifest themselves physically in our bodies, often as head and neck issues.
Melanie asks her clients, “Where are your heroics and desires at odds with each other?” Are you too busy being a mom hero or a business hero? If we’re busy being the hero in someone else’s story, we’re not working towards what we want.
If you’re an employee and you’re making money for someone else and not for yourself, or you’re in a field that’s not really lighting you. You feel like you’re putting in a lot of work, but you’re not feeling the compensation and the return.
Your passion and your profit are not in alignment!
If you’re taking care of everyone else, ask yourself “Who is taking care of you?” Women in particular, very often don’t have a clear answer for what they desire. They’ve been so busy satisfying everyone else’s desires, they haven’t slowed down enough to think about what they really want.
Melanie helps people get to the central story. She explains that we all have a physical expression of our internal narrative and we have an internal expression of our physical narrative. What we are experiencing inside of ourselves and outside of ourselves is really the root of all compression points in your body.
The body is our conscious mind and it’s always talking to us. We’re just not fluent in its language most of the time!
Melanie works with entrepreneurs and business owners who are trying to up-level and uncover their genius. She helped a business owner have breakthrough with hip tightness. In terms of vagus nerve compression points, that’s where your inspiration and structure are at odds with each other. Her client had an inspired idea she wanted to do, but she didn’t think the structure of her life would allow that. She had some limiting beliefs on whether her inspiring ideas would be possible.
Melanie and her client were able to dismantle that and as her hip got better, she had a huge “Aha moment!” for her business and less physical discomfort as well!
Bodies are expressions of our businesses and our lives. Melanie contends that we don’t talk about what stress really is, and that’s what Melanie is bringing to the table.
As humans we connect more with story than we do with process. Chronic pain gets locked into our limbic system which is where our emotions are, and you cannot logic yourself out of your limbic system. You have to have an emotional key to get it out of there.
