Melissa Brice

Wellnesspreneuer - Owner of Reclaim Wellness

BIO

“Melissa Marie” Brice is the founder and owner-operator of Reclaim Wellness. Melissa established the business after facing the realities of long term elevated stress and their effect on health and wellness, while pursuing a fast paced career in the corporate world. Her journey towards wellness, from “Soil to Soul”, began in early 2016 with an introduction to DoTERRA essential oils; which, turned her health around by addressing the root cause rather than treating the symptoms. From this point on, Melissa was given a vision, passion, and deep desire to bring the power of natural & integrative wellness solutions to the Las Cruces community and beyond. Reclaim Wellness first opened its doors on August 1, 2016 and has since grown to a thriving practice that is now home to team of providers and products that aim to bridge the gap between modern medicine and complementary/alternative therapies; under one roof.

Professionally, Melissa is highly sought after for her work in Transpersonal Hypnotherapy (specializing in trauma and emotional release), Reiki, Nutritional Supplementation Therapy, and as a Labor, Postpartum, and Bereavement Doula.

BIO

Hello my name is Elijah but everyone calls me Eli for short. Family and friends call me “E” for an even shorter version of my name. No this is not short joke related, though you might find it “punny” when you meet me! I am the owner of MoonHouse & Co. I started this small business to create hand made products for my sisters that have sensitive skin and fell in love from there. I LOVE what I do whether it’s being in the National Guard, being a Pharmacy Technician, Brand Promoting for Thrive, making sugar and salt scrubs, network marketing, or being Director of First Impressions here at Reclaim with my Team!!! I am a Client/Patient first kind of gal!

If you have any questions, concerns or want to know more… I‘m beyond happy to help in any way, shape or form I can!!! Hopefully you’ll come in so we can meet in person.

Courtney Bounds

Herbalist - Owner of Herbal Badger Tea & Spice Shoppe

BIO

Hello! My name is Courtney and I am excited to share my plant knowledge with you. I have been an Herbalist for 3 years but I grew up in nature and around plants and animals. My herbal journey began at home when I decided to provide more for my two children. I wanted to provide and teach them self reliance. Plants were our first medicine and nutrition. My goal is to get back to basics by empowering and educating the people within our community to be in control of their Health and Wellness mind, body and spirit. Herbal Badger is more than Tea – delicious as it may be. I want to help others be a little “Badgery” too; clear your thoughts in nature, get your hands dirty gardening and connect with the Earth and Humanity like never before.

Mary Lucero, PhD

Mary Lucero, PhD

Soil Microbiologist - Owner of End-O-Fite Enterprises LLC

BIO

I have been immersed in research, teaching, and consulting in agriculture, environmental science, and biotechnology for over 3 decades. One of the advantages of being in this field for so long is being able to witness the remarkable advancements that have taken place, including the emergence of new understanding about the tremendous power of those microbial communities that live on and in our crops, our soils, and even our own bodies!

As my career progressed, my own chronic health issues brought me to an important crossroads. There, I was forced to recognize that the same basic principles influence every kind of health. This includes our personal/physical health, plant and soil health, animal health, environmental health… It was this discovery that would make a tremendous impact on my future work. As my own health was restored, conducting new research seemed less urgent than demonstrating these simple principles to those who can benefit from them. The fact is, most of the food insecurity, economic hardship, and disease we are experiencing worldwide can be linked directly to decisions and policies that ignore the interdependence between our food, our environment, our lifestyles, and our health. Solutions are quite simple! They begin with changing our lifestyles and restoring those functional microbiomes and food webs that connect healthy people to a healthy planet. The more we recognize this fact, and take action on it, the more impact we can make for future generations. I invite you to join me on this incredible journey.
