Meet the interdisciplinary Pelvic Health practitioners who founded The Institute for Pelvic Health™.


Melissa Hines, DPT, is a pelvic floor physical therapist who founded one of the country’s leading interdisciplinary private pelvic health clinics, Wellest Integrative Health, in Boston, MA. Melissa is passionate about women’s health and teaching other providers how to bridge the disconnect between pelvic health, primary care, and OBGYN. 

Kathy Kates, FNP, is also a champion of women's health and ran a women’s health program for a large medical institution for over a decade. For the first four years, Kathy never thought much about the pelvic floor and its overall impact on women's health. This quickly changed after undergoing breast cancer treatment when 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 work collaboratively at Wellest Integrative Health. Their unique interdisciplinary approach has helped thousands of patients get their lives back and made their clinic a top pelvic health practice in the country. In addition, they mentor and train other women's healthcare providers and created the Institute for Pelvic Health™ to share knowledge and provide new learning. Kathy and Melissa are also founders of the educational community Woman NP Please, for Nurse Practitioners specializing in women’s health.

"The Institute they have created is so extremely valuable.  Looking at their work is a compelling reminder that medical science only knows what it cares to learn about. No wonder there have been heart institutes for decades, but pelvic health institutes only recently. I just love how solid, competent, assured, calm, and comprehensive that Kathy and Melissa are; it takes all the stigma, mystery, and worry away and opens the door to better well-being for parts of the body that are vital to all of life, and so all people"
