One of the guiding principles at Essential Wellness is …
“The body can only heal in a state of relaxation.”
Michele is an expert at Energy Medicine and Mind-Body tools and she’ll teach you how to get your body to relax. The combination of Energy Medicine and Mind-Body Tools interrupts the fight-flight-freeze “stress” response that keeps your body and mind in a state of contraction and tension. Disengaging your body’s stress response calms your nervous system down and allows you to relax.
Michele believes in the body’s power of natural healing; therefore, she looks at you as a whole person (mind-body-spirit) while assisting you in digging for the underlying root cause of your symptom(s). You see, symptoms are only “signals” from your body that something is out of balance.
She has discovered through years of working with clients and seeing patterns emerge that there is a mental and emotional component to every physical symptom, which means the root cause of your symptom may be on the mental and/or emotional level.
Unlike conventional therapies that will solely target and treat your physical symptoms, at Essential Wellness, once we determine the underlying root cause and address it, it’s much easier for your body to return to its natural state of wellness. And alongside conventional medical treatments, this can assist you to become a fully functioning individual both inside and out.
Michele has trained in multiple therapy modalities over the past 16 years, realizing there isn’t one therapy that’s the be-all, end-all for every client but it’s in combining what she’s learned that helps a client experience results. She pulls together the tools and techniques that will best address each client’s individual needs.
Her unique style of combining therapy and coaching using Mind-Body Tools, Energy Medicine, and Nutritional Endocrinology help clients trace the imbalance back to its source so it can be released at the deepest level possible. Michele finds that addressing the mental component (your thoughts) and the emotional component (your feelings) help create the energetic shift that leads the body into alignment and balance.
Therapies and techniques come from her training in and clinical experience using: Core Synchronism, Reiki, Colon Hydrotherapy, Core Lymphatic, Eden Energy Medicine, EFT Tapping, Visualization/Meditation, Law of Attraction Principles, Breathwork, Reference Point Therapy, RAE Radionics Analysis, Flower Remedies, Herbal Medicine, Essential Oils, and Nutritional Endocrinology.
Michele specifically works with clients who suffer from chronic experience of pain; chronic stress that shows up as fatigue, low energy, and exhaustion; and gut imbalances that show up as autoimmune conditions. She uses a multi-faceted approach that addresses the thoughts, emotions, and energy that accompany such conditions; the gut imbalances that lead to toxicity build-up in the body; and the hormone imbalances that create such conditions.
Michele began searching for alternatives to get relief from decades of migraine suffering. Conventional medicine offered her drug therapy that didn’t seem to work for her. Chiropractic adjustments seemed to offer minimal relief. It wasn’t until she received Core Synchronism therapy that her head finally felt balanced and the migraines lessened. Core Synchronism training eventually led her to Albuquerque, NM, where she attended NMSNT as it offered her training in many natural healing modalities (Core Synchronism, Polarity Therapy, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Swedish Massage, Herbs, Acupressure, Living Foods, Homeopathy, Essential Oils, Flower Remedies, etc.). Michele credits this program for teaching her the basic principles of “holistic” healing – using natural therapy tools to bring all aspects of her beingness into balance. It was here that her migraines significantly diminished after receiving daily bodywork and a series of colon hydrotherapy sessions.
Michele graduated from NMSNT and began an alternative therapy practice in Scranton, ND, in 2004. She is both a Natural Therapeutic Specialist (NTS) and Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT). In addition to her diploma, Michele has extended her knowledge through post-graduate studies and continuing education training. Those studies include: Core Synchronism, Reference Point Therapy, Colon Hydrotherapy, IonCleanse Foot Detoxification, Nutritional Consultant, RAE Radionics Analysis, Vibrational Raindrop Technique with Young Living essential oils, Eden Energy Medicine, QSCA Coaching, and Nutrition Consulting.
In 2009, Michele took a fork in her journey to wellness. After the loss of two loved ones within 10 month’s time, she experienced extreme mental and emotional stress which started a cascade of body breakdown. In just a few short years, the stress brought about leaky gut which cascaded into multiple food intolerances and high thyroid antibodies (an autoimmune condition). This eventually led to hormone imbalances which caused adrenal exhaustion, severe low-back pain, as well as female hormone imbalances. She has learned first hand how stress can break the body down. This experience led Michele to training in Nutritional Endocrinology to rebuild her body. It also deepened her knowledge about how to address stress that we all face in our every-day lives.
Today, Michele is back on the wellness side of the Illness-Wellness health spectrum. She continues to grow her practice by seeing clients in person at her clinic space in Scranton, ND, as well as working with clients on-line via phone and Skype sessions. She is deeply honored to teach, guide, and witness positive change in her client’s lives. In addition to her therapy-coaching practice, Michele works toward expanding her knowledge in holistic health principles as she continues her quest for personal wellness on all levels, and enjoys her time with her family.
