About Michelle


My interest in healing practices began with a career in nursing, working first in a holistic health clinic then moving into western medicine to work in ob/gyn, triage and surgery. After 10 years, I left the medical field to pursue my interest in massage therapy.

I graduated from the Minneapolis School of Massage in 2003, and began my massage career with a focus on deep tissue massage and injury rehabilitation. I became an Arvigo® Therapy practitioner in 2008 and these techniques have become my main focus after witnessing the healing impact it has brought to countless clients. 

I am a member of the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals and the International Association of Healthcare Practitioners. I am certified in the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy®, studying under Dr. Rosita Arvigo, the founder of the Arvigo® Institute. In addition, I have advanced training in pregnancy and postpartum massage therapy and trained as an infant massage instructor. I studied at The Meta Institute and the International Institute of Therapeutic Coaching and am certified in Therapeutic Spiritual Coaching, Neuro-Linguistic Programing and Hypnotherapy. 

I stay present and grounded through mindfulness based meditation and yoga, and my passion and curiosity for life has led me to study spiritual healing across the globe, including Peru, Costa Rica, Mexico and the mountains and deserts of California and Utah.
