She has a deep love of meditation, yoga and energetic healing.
She is an experienced health coach, Reiki and Seichem Master and has studied post graduate yoga and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) meditation. Michelle loves nothing more than combining these healing modalities to create a bespoke wellness plan to have clients connect with their OWN version of THRIVING HEALTH & WELLNESS.
Her experience with these healing modalities over the past 18 years has allowed her to heal her own battles with chronic pain and fatigue, body dysmorphia, disordered eating and addiction. Healing these has inspired her passion to help women to feel safe to connect to their physical selves, to let go of body shame & judgement and to allow themselves to be present, celebrate and manage their sensitivities and emotions.
Michelle helps her clients balance stress hormones & emotional upset and live a life where they celebrate being messy, juicy, joyous & sparkly.
