Michelle has worked in the caring profession for over 25yrs. Many of those were with the NHS, caring for new mothers and their babies. It was during her time working for the NHS that she became increasingly interested in Holistic Therapies. Through her work in Maternity Services she was able to study Auricular Acupuncture.
From there, Michelle went on to study Reiki and has been a Reiki Practitioner since 2007.
In 2008, she achieved a Diploma in Indian Head Massage and a year later a Diploma in Thai Foot Massage. She also spent two years studying Homeopathy at the North West College of Homeopathy. In 2012, Michelle had a life-changing experience. Having been a migraine sufferer since childhood, severe headaches were part of normal life for her.
After waking up one morning, with what she thought was another severe migraine, Michelle took her usual action. This time though things would be very different. After several visits to A&E, a CT scan twelve days later revealed the truth. Michelle had suffered a Subarachnoid Brain Haemorrhage caused by a ruptured aneurysm.
After making a full recovery Michelle rediscovered her love of creativity. Painting and drawing was something she loved to do in her youth. As with many of us, work and family life take up much of our time, leaving less time for our true passions.
Michelle believes that having a near death experience makes you look at life slightly differently.
Since 2013 she has been working towards combining her passion for creativity with earning an income and helping as many people as she can along the way.
Michelle has been a guest on the Imani Speaks Radio Show and Podcast, She has also opened her Etsy shop : U-Gift.
