A PLACE TO BREATHE.
I am a Reiki practitioner, Animal Aromatherapist and Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) and Psychotherapy (EAP) Facilitator. Prior to a serious illness, I was a fitness trainer. I have many, many years in the helping professions. It has been through my passion for continuing education and curiosity about our bodies both 2 and 4 legged that I have accessed so many fine educators and bring to you the information in this website. When we are in our bodies and present in this world, anything is possible. Wellness is possible and there is no place for illness.
I believe we are all unique and each of us has gifts to offer. We are in this world to serve each other to the best of our abilities and this includes ourselves.
Through my experiences with childhood abuse and trauma, along with the challenges of living with an unusual autoimmune disorder, I have experimented with a wide variety healing modalities including traditional western medicine. I am now experiencing a much improved quality of life through my use of holistic healing modalities including my Essential Oils.
In my work as an EAL/EAP facilitator, I have been fortunate to work with many amazing rescue horses who have all experienced health issues of some kind. Through our use of Young Living Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils we have supported each and every one of them to better health. It is truly a gift to be able to assist such generous animals in recovering their wellness.
In my home, we seem to also attract unwanted dogs and cats, brain damaged, reactive, neglected and abused. Learning to support these fur babies through extensive training and work with the oils has been a labour of love with lots of laughter and tears…and so rewarding!
Jinxie has now crossed the rainbow bridge. She was my greatest teacher and by my side through the worst of my own health challenges.
I am a firm believer that you don’t get the animal in your life that you want, you get the animal that you need.
I give my sincere Thank You to some very special educators in particular:
Dr. Carolyn DeMarco, MD – who taught me The Raindrop Technique some years ago and was my first intro to Young Living Essential Oils.
Dr. Kristin Ditzel, Dr. of Chinese Medicine – who taught me Reiki to heal myself and one of the most inspiring women I know.
Dr. Irene Siegel, Ph.D. – who has taught me how to embrace the healing energy in all of us.
Dr. Laura Taylor, DVM, EDO – My amazing osteopathic vet who has taught me so much about helping animals.
Hi! I'm Michelle. My love for animals and all things nature has lead me down this amazing path. Welcome!

Jinx was a rescue pup who came into our lives and shed a bright but brief light. She inspired Michelle's exploration into oils which has helped many other animals.
