About Melany



I am Melany, your Massage and Beauty Therapist and owner of Beauty at Heart Studio. 


I established my business in my home in 2010. After 6 successful and years, I relocated to a bigger space on Rosedale Road.


The Wellness industry found me in 2007 after moving to New Zealand from South Africa where I was a professional ballet dancer with the South African Ballet Theatre. 


Whilst helping a friend in her Beauty clinic in Auckland City, I realised that working in a non-threatening environment without crazy deadlines and drama, was absolutely the place for me. Taking care of stressed clients and giving them the opportunity to feel better, appealed to me and I decided to complete my beauty therapy training in Auckland. 

Setting up my own business was a phenomenal personal dream come true.  It fits in with my responsibilities as a mother and nurturer and I gain great fulfillment from taking care of others.  


Massage Therapy is my particular passion, and I believe massage to be beneficial beyond measure, and can be a great facilitator of change once it becomes a part of your regular good-health maintenance.  I know that establishing a work / life balance can be tricky at times, but you can strive every day to put good routines in place, taking time for yourself and have a little fun. 


I look forward to seeing you in the Studio!
