Meet the NP & PT behind The Institute for Pelvic Health



Melissa Hines, DPT, is a pelvic floor physical therapist with a decade of experience. Founder of Wellest Integrative Health, the leading interdisciplinary pelvic health clinic in Boston, Melissa experienced the disconnect between pelvic health and OBGYN care on her own journey to motherhood (she is a new mom!)

Kathy Kates, FNP, ran a women’s health program for a decade. For the first 4 years, she never even thought about the pelvic floor. But after undergoing breast cancer treatment she had significant dyspareunia and learned — as a pelvic floor therapy patient — how important pelvic health is...and how little she learned about it in her NP training. 


Kathy and Melissa joined forces at Wellest and what began as an interdisciplinary clinical practice became a new philosophy of patient care. Our holistic approach has been so successful that we were inspired to create the Institute for Pelvic Health™. Beyond the Kegel™ is our way of sharing our wealth of clinical experience, and empowering you to help your patients too!
