"Working with Michelle opened my eyes and my energy to great healing. I booked a session with Michelle to address a nagging long-term IT Band injury. Michelle told me that I had a trauma that happened to me at age 8, one of mistrust. At the time of our session, I could not remember anything significant that happened at that age. Michelle released it and my body started to heal, my IT band issue was gone and I could see a change in how my overall energy felt. Less than a week later, I had a distant family member, with whom I had lost touch with for over 20 years reach out to me. In reminiscing, we talked about a summer that she came to live with me and my family. My older sibling, being a typical older sibling, convinced me that this family member was coming to stay with us because my family was going to put me up for adoption. I was devastated. Of course, when my parents learned of the sibling teasing, they quickly reassured me that was not going to happen but in my 8 year old mind, I just didn't trust them. In sharing this story, we discovered I was 8 years old when this happened. I know the work that Michelle did brought this family member back into my life by releasing my past trauma, as well as healing my IT band."
