Michelle became a CBP in 2008 after finding that BodyTalk addressed so many of her interests in healing in one, concise, effective system. Since then, BodyTalk has transformed her life on so many levels, and she greatly enjoys seeing the growth and transformation in her clients. Her approach to healing is influenced by her studies of various somatic and energy modalities including SourcePoint Therapy, BioGeometry, Body-Mind Centering®, Feldenkrais Method, Fitzmaurice Voicework, Alexander Technique, Ayurveda, Yuen Method, yoga, dance and performance, all of which feed her continuous exploration of a greater awareness and expression of self. She brings to her practice nearly 20 years of professional experience as an award-winning contemporary dance artist and teacher working in New York and internationally. She received a B.F.A. with high honors from the University of Illinois in Dance Performance and Choreography. Michelle is also currently a student of PaRama Unit 1.
If you are interested in working with Michelle, please feel free to call or email. She has worked with clients on depression, anxiety, digestive disorders, auto-immune issues, trauma, fertility and childbirth, life transitions, creative projects, and relationship/family support. The work she does reminds each person that their body/system is built to heal and grow through harmonizing the communication systems in the body, thereby creating the best conditions for healing to happen. Once your body is harmonized, your life starts to harmonize as well!
"Thank you very much, Michelle, for the session! You are a very skilled practitioner. I'm amazed at how much was covered and how it resonated with the 'priorities' in my life right now. I experienced a noticeable shift in the following days, with a lot of old programming being released. It's true what they say, that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. I feel I am in a different and better place today because of both you and BodyTalk."

"I was deeply moved by my session with Michelle; her work was something I didn't know I needed. I felt so empowered afterward to speak my truth and take action about the obvious distress that came up, that I cleared the rest of my day to do so. I thank you for the needed nudge, your wisdom, and kindness."

Testimonials from Distant Sessions
"Wow. Our session was one of the most powerful bodywork experiences I've ever had. It seriously reframed my situation and immediately gave me the sense that I had tools for looking at how I was feeling with ease and love instead of anxiety.
It led me to take even more time off to rest. And I'm now in deep rest mode which feels more grounded and explorative even. I am tired, very hungry and thirsty, and still a little out of it, but I get the sense that I am recalibrating.
Thank you so much. You've set the pace for how I'm structuring my healing and my days for the next bit of time. It means everything to put my well being first."
-Devika Wickremesinghe - Los Angeles, CA
"I felt changes that were huge for me. I was in a social situation that normally would have been challenging but wasn't. I actually felt attractive for the first time in a while. Confidence levels, humor coming out, joy. Thank you for my amazing session! It made so much sense on so many levels and has had an interesting outcome already. Can't wait to see how it continues to unfold. "
-Carol Casebeer - Loveland, Colorado
"My sessions with Michelle are so beautiful. They remind me of why I studied Bodytalk. They carry the essence from that time that was so full of curiosity and miracles. She is very clear and incredibly knowledgeable of the system. The sessions are thoughtful and effortless. Each one feels like a unique stamp from that specific time in my life. She is truly a wonderful practitioner. I recommend her highly."
