How can I quantify the life changing, life saving support, understanding, care, healing and holding I have received from Michelle these past 7-8 months? She offers a unique blend of her own lived experience, multiple branches of training, and strong intuitive wisdom and empathy that I have never known before. Without Michelle’s help this year I would have been lost to this world.
The searing pain in my body began while caring for my partner for 3 years through cancer. The pain increased after his sudden and painful death, increased some more after the loss of 2 homes.. one due to a sale, the other due to a flood. I also lost my dog to old age, my job, career, income, and my whole community when I had to move. I knew the pain was stress related and I believed it would improve when things got better. But it just kept getting worse. I was in agony, couldn’t leave the house, and I was spiraling into total panic. I considered ending my life as the only way out… then I found Michelle.
Pain that had kept me either in bed, or lying face down on the floor for several hours a day, had reduced by 50% after only one month of working with Michelle. We continued working together for several more months because I needed a lot of support. At the time of writing this I can joyfully share that the pain is maybe 5-10% compared to 6 months ago!
I still have a little more to learn!
As well as teacher and healer, Michelle became my trusted friend on my journey, offering me a safe space, an open heart and unconditional acceptance every step of the way. These qualities in a healer are invaluable. I am so grateful for this woman in my life.
