Hey! I’m Michelle (she/her), a Shiatsu Practitioner with a warm and calming presence that offers a sense of comfort for you and your treatment experience. I studied at the Australian Shiatsu College in Zen, Classical and Barefoot Shiatsu techniques, as well as cupping, moxibustion and gua sha.
As a practitioner I am committed to creating a safe, inclusive space where all feel welcome and comfortable to explore what they need to in a session. My approach to Shiatsu is grounded and intuitive, centred in the belief that touch is a powerful tool for our physical and emotional wellbeing.
I found my way to Shiatsu through my own health journey seeking support with various digestive complaints. Discovering and learning about Traditional Chinese Medicine was an empowering experience that prepared me on my journey, learning resources to support me to return to a place of balance and a desire to share these learnings with others.
Open to working with clients of all ages and health issues; I’m also interested in digestive support, women’s health and ‘Movement Shiatsu’ – a practice that encourages the receiver to become an explorer of their own body and be consciously involved in their healing journey.
When not on the futon I love to dance, see live music and connect with my community. I balance the yang with lots of time in nature, walking and bathing in the river.
I look forward to welcoming you onto the mat and finding out how I can best support you in your own health journey.
