Michelle constructs a treatment plan specific to each client’s needs and goals.

Cranio-Sacral Therapy is a form of energy work that is beneficial for anyone suffering from PTSD and/or trauma from accidents or abuse.   Full treatment involves the application of light pressure and manipulation of cranial and sacral bones with the intention of releasing tension and adhesions within soft tissues and the dura mater.  Clients will enter a deep state of relaxation during treatment.

Reiki is a form of hands-on energy work helpful for anyone.  Those undergoing cancer treatment find it very beneficial, also in preparation for surgery or recovery afterwards and those experiencing high levels of stress. It relaxes the body/mind while clearing the auric field and replenishe vital life force energy.

Shamanic Energy Work  uses ancient rituals invoking archetypal energies to clear and repair chakras, auric field, reconnection to soul parts, and healing of psychological and emotional issues.

Hermetic Energy Work is a system of healing that involves meditation, ritual, talismans, and invocation of archetypal energies to rebalance the auric field and connect a person to their spiritual resources.

Meditation combines breath awareness and body relaxation to still the mind, center the spirit, promote internal peace, and increase life force energy.  Michelle teaches meditation in small groups, sometimes as part of yoga classes, and one-on-one.

Yoga helps people achieve a balanced, healthy and vibrant life.

Workshops Michelle has taught numerous yoga workshops, meditation workshops, shamanic workshops and even basic massage workshops.  Yoga workshops provide students with a deeper level of knowledge and experience than what you’d receive out of a 75 minute class.  Meditation workshops give students a broader experience of various meditation techniques and their application in life.  Shamanic workshops give students tools to help create positive change needed in their lives.  Ayurvedic workshops provide students with knowledge of Ayurveda, Doshas, right diet, and routines which will improve health and well-being

  1. I would like to get a 60 minute massage gift certificate for my daughter, Laurie Howerter-Gonzalez. How do I do that?

    She told me to tell you that she is Asian and has attended your yoga classes for many years, so that you would know who she is.


    1. LOL, yes I know Laurie. You can call me at 978-317-7367. If you are local you can pick it up from me. If not, I will put it in the mail and you can send me payment, we’ll figure it out…. Thank you Michelle
