Private Appointments

Michelle is the person to see when you have tried everyone else.

Her treatments are highly personalized and uniquely adapted to you and your body. Using a hands-on approach based in manual osteopathic manipulation, neuro-vascular work and structural integration, Michelle works to heal everything from micro to macro, meaning from blood vessels, nerves, organs, cranial systems, bones and connective tissue to general body alignment and how freely your body is moving.

Specializing in treating both physical and emotional trauma by supporting it to exit the nervous system, her work can be transformative for people experiencing, among other things, disc issues, incontinence, IBS, menstrual issues, nerve pain, GURD, injury patterns, scoliosis, concussions, pelvic imbalances, headaches, chronic pain, and effects from falls or accidents.

Through a hands-on energetic process that inquires within the body's energy field, Michelle can identify where your pain or issue originates- and more importantly, where it’s being held in the body. In so doing, she can work deeply within your body’s systems to release the origin of the issue or injury, while at the same time supporting the nervous system and organs to eliminate both the root cause and the symptoms.

Each session is unique, helping your body to release its stuck patterns in the way that most benefits you. Whether your issues or pain are held in tissues, muscles, organs, bones or fascia, Michelle will chat with your body to ascertain the source and eliminate the trauma. Whether your trauma is energetically held in adhesions or scar tissue in the organs, or through ancestral or emotional issues retained in the body, Michelle can help to clear that energy and facilitate healing.

Please be prepared by wearing a swimsuit or underwear, as Michelle will observe how your body is organized geometrically. Keep in mind these sessions will be more focused on solutions, as opposed to a traditional body treatment. If you are ready to release the old and ring in the new, prepare for true transformation!
