Dr. Melanie Dias

Dr. Melanie Dias is a chiropractor, coach, writer, speaker and educator. She has over 16 years of clinical experience and has spent the last 10 years utilizing her skills and passions to help patients transform their lives and realize their potential to heal and thrive naturally. Her chiropractic wellness practice is located within Living Pure Chiropractic, LLC in Glendale, AZ. She sees patients of all ages and provides chiropractic, physical therapies, active rehabilitation, nutrition counseling and assessments.  Her emphasis in practice resides in injury care (auto and sports- even weekend warrior injuries!), pregnancy, pediatric, rehabilitation and functional nutrition. Active individuals and those who are ready to commit to change for a healthier lifestyle, weight loss, hormone balancing and better performance tend to seek her services. She was born in Germany and grew up in Toronto, Canada. Starting ballet classes at the age of three and progressing to intense dance training of all types, piano and competitive baton twirling set the stage for a career in health and fitness. She obtained a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology at the University of Western Ontario, London, Canada with intentions of going to medical school. However the medical paradigm was not in synch with her own philosophy of health. At a time where she started visiting nutrition stores, working as a professional dancer part time and becoming a self proclaimed gym rat, her curiosity for another solution to solving health issues led her in other directions. Her discovery of chiropractic was not until her last year of university when an intern in Toronto rescued her from years of chronic headaches and migraines with a chiropractic adjustment and and explanation of the physiology and lifestyle issues wreaking havoc with her nervous system..causing these headaches! She was not Tylenol deficient after all and was relieved she didn’t need to continue dumping medication into her body just to function day to day.  Sold!! Chiropractic was a perfect fit for her philosophy on approaching health- addressing the cause versus treating the disease. She started working for a local chiropractor, Dr. Daniel Proctor, then made her way to Los Angeles to study chiropractic. Dr. Dias has been seeing patients for over 16 years and is certified in the Webster Technique- a method of aligning the pelvis in pregnant women to facilitate safe, natural birthing) and kinesio taping. She has a background in Ayurvedic Medicine- the science of self healing from Ancient India and is currently studying through the Kerala Ayurveda Academy. Her chiropractic approach is lifestyle based, meaning she doesn’t just deliver adjustments and sends patients on their way. Each visit comes with some education to maintain their improvement and eventually get to a place where they are independently functioning at an optimal level naturally. In 2013 she started Pinnacle Health Corporation which is her independent company through which she provides nutritional consultations, business and corporate wellness consulting to other organizations and practices which are either starting from ground up or just need a little restructuring and re-organization. Dr. Dias is currently expanding into providing more community talks, workshops and professional speaking engagements on health related topics and empowerment. Representing a profession and a healthy, drug free lifestyle that embraces the art of self healing and self improvement is one her biggest accomplishments. Educating, Inspiring and Empowering patients to take responsibility and control of their health and watching them evolve into happier, healthier and more fulfilled beings is her greatest joy in practice! This, to her, is mission accomplished!   The things that bring her personal enjoyment are dancing, being in nature, hiking, weight training, gardening, snapping photos of inspiring moments and beauty, curling up with a good book, playing with her dog and traveling. She makes a point of a daily routine of meditating, yoga and being thankful to the people and the simple things that bring her joy and fulfillment.  She says: “We only have a finite number of days on this earth. It’s pointless wasting several of them on being angry, frustrated and helpless over things we have no control over. Exercise control over your destiny by focusing on the positives and grow from your experiences!”
