About Candice Youngman

I had the pleasure of meeting Melissa at the end of 2021, shortly after which I enrolled in her 21-Day Metabolic Reboot program. The experience was transformative! Melissa helped me get the results I was desiring, after many frustrating attempts following other programs.

I have been by her side ever since and am delighted to be a wellness support coach for her programs!

I grew up with health-conscious parents, whipping up fruit smoothies at festivals with my school-teacher father during the summer months since the age of ten. That early influence sparked a lifetime of curiosity and passion for all things wellness – including biohacking, neurohacking DIY-ing, and experimenting with/advocating for culinary medicine. I’ve been a licensed and certified massage therapist since 1987 and a Reiki master since 2009, and I have degrees in biotechnology and human biodynamics. 

I’ve had a flavorful career journey, including working in biotechnology at Rinat Neuroscience and Genentech, serving as general manager for Cafe Gratitude in several of its Northern California locations, and running two of my own Bay Area businesses: one as a massage therapist and personal trainer, and the other as “theJuicetress” for Raw Rhythm, LLC, a smoothie business I incorporated in 2010. My whole life has centered around being in service to and empowering others to take better care of themselves, it’s my honor and privilege to uplift people in this way!

I look forward to inspiring you to become the best version of yourself through Life Wellness Lab!
