How do you wade through a world of incessant noise, pressure for perfection, miseducated recommendations, fad diets, trendy spiritual practices, and personal development courses to achieve actual happiness? You don’t, and that’s where I come in.
Hey, love. I’m Melanie Santos. NYC-based wellpreneur, wife, mother, cosmic goddess, and intuitive healer.
Welcome to MelanieSantos.co – a personal development brand focused on cultivating mental, physical, and spiritual wellness. I share my story, knowledge, and experiences in an effort to shift perception, break barriers, build community, and most importantly, empower people of color to heal, connect and align with their highest potential.
My candid, compassionate persona has elevated me as a wellness authority, specifically in communities of color searching for understanding and opportunities for healing. I am a voice for people stifled by cultural axioms that drive them to believe that wellness isn’t important and/or accessible, and that suffering is not only a way of life, but a means through which happiness is acquired.
This brand was built on the fact that healing and ‘being well’ is not, and should not, feel exclusive to certain types of people, so I – a first generation Latina-Americana on an 11-year journey with Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Depression – use my experiences, knowledge, coping mechanisms, and product recommendations to kill the stigmas and bring the truth about real wellness to light.
My unique spiritual lens focuses on tapping into the cosmic soul with a special concentration on utilizing the healing energy of the moon. My moon ritual videos are among the top 10 most viewed moon ritual videos on YouTube, and have moved countless people to start their own healing journeys through meditation, honesty, forgiveness, and intention.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication from the College of Mount Saint Vincent and recently left an eight-year corporate communications career to fulfill my purpose of helping the masses heal and connect. I was born, raised, and live in Manhattan with my husband and best friend Hewy and our star of a daughter, Ava Luna. Together we make the Mewys.
