Energy work

Body Listening is a term used to define a broad range of therapeutic skills. Primarily, it involves an intuitive approach to treating a whole person, not just a sore back or a stressed-out mind. Being in tune with the energy field of the client as well as her own allows Michele to key into the individual needs of each session. Working with the person on all levels dramatically increases the effectiveness of the treatment.

Chakra Balancing is specifically designed to bring calm and balance to the energy centers of the body. Michele may work directly on the physical layer, or around or above the body. The energetic body, or aura, surrounds each of us in many layers and is directly linked to how we feel physically, mentally, and emotionally. Michele is a trained and certified SHES Spiritual Healer. She is also an ordained minister, qualified to incorporate talk therapy into her sessions.

Reiki is a system of healing developed in Japan in the early 20th century based on modern intuitive interpretations of ancient arts of laying on of hands. The spiritually guided (Rei) life force energy (Ki) which is channeled through the healer and received by the body of the recipient as gentle supportive healing energy. Reiki does not challenge nor conflict with any religious belief systems. Reiki may be practiced alone or incorporated into other treatment modalities, used to enhance the healing experience.

Journeywork is a term used for the variations of talk therapy that Michele may incorporate into a session. It may include guided visualizations, meditations, waking dreams, visions, and metaphysical interpretations of physical or other issues. By accessing both body memory and conscious and subconscious patterns, the client may experience healing in all areas of his/her life. The client is always in charge of what happens and what is discussed in confidentiality.

Michele is the facilitator of these experiences only. Journeywork is usually done during the massage session, in conjunction with Reiki or IFR.
