Dr. Melissa Cugliari (Naturopathic Doctor)
Naturopathy, Cosmetic Acupuncture
Melissa Cugliari is a licensed naturopathic doctor practicing in downtown Toronto. She graduated from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto and is a member of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND) and the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND). Prior to this, Melissa completed her Hons. BA at the University of Toronto, studying Fine Art History, Philosophy, and English Literature.
Although she treats all health concerns, Melissa holds a special interest in naturopathic dermatology and cosmetic acupuncture, digestive issues, women’s health (including hormonal balancing, menstrual concerns, fertility, perinatal and menopausal care), mental health concerns including stress management, anxiety, and depression, and health education for children, adolescents and young adults. Melissa has a passion for education which has become a key part of her practice. She is particularly keen on educating and empowering patients in the realm of lifestyle (diet, exercise, sleep) which she believes are foundational in achieving and maintaining optimal health.
Melissa’s priority is to uncover and treat the root cause of disease and remove any obstacles to health--all in effort to facilitate the body’s own ability to heal itself. She is dedicated to individualized medicine, helping facilitate each patient’s learning and understanding of his/her own body. By integrating evidence-based treatments and diagnostic testing with the ancient healing wisdom of herbalism, Asian medicine, and other modalities, Melissa is able to create unique, holistic treatment protocols that address the needs of each patient on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level.
