Michelle has been practicing Sound Healing for nearly a decade. Her journey into this practice began one night when she was invited to a buddhist chanting group. After the gathering, she was surprised of how good she felt along with how strong the affects were on her body, mind, and spirit. It was a natural high, feeling grounded, and “Harmonized.” The inquisitive Michelle had to get down to the bottom of why this simple act of chanting had such profound affects on the human body. Through her research, she found a large sound healing community with many masters and many schools of applying sound in healing and balancing the body. Her first books included “Healing Sounds” by Jonathan Goldman, “This is Your Brain on Music” by Daniel J. Levitin, “Cymatics” by Hans Jenny, “The Mozart Effect” by Don Campbell, “Music and Sound in the Healing Arts” by Dr. John Beaulieu, and the list goes on as she immersed herself into the subject reading over 20 books touching on every angle of Sound Healing.
With perfect timing, a few months later, The Global Sound Conference was happening in Marina Del Rey, California. This was a five day conference jam packed with workshops bringing together all the masters on this subject from around the world. Michelle felt like a kid at Disney Land. At the end of the conference, she found herself driving home with a full chakra set of crystal singing bowls in the back seat of her car.
Michelle is always excited to share her prized possessions and the magical pure healing tones they produce with everyone she meets. It was in 2012 that she decided to publicly share her passion for sound healing and over the past four years she has developed her Signature Chakra Balancing Sound Bath. She mostly works with crystal instruments but also combines tibetan bowls, chimes, and tuning forks providing a rich vibrational healing meditation.
With today’s technology driven lifestyle and western society’s influence of reaching outside of ourselves for gratification, many are more than ever disconnected from their inner vibrational source. Through the sound bath experience, Michelle’s goal is to lead individuals back to their natural vibrational being, heal through balancing the energetic centers, create inner harmony, and most importantly create a space where one can find all the answers from within. She is dedicated to creating an experience of balanced healing that is gentle yet powerful at the same time. The result is a blissful state of consciousness that Michelle likes to call “Sonic Being.”
To reinforce her self-studies, Michelle has completed the certification program at the Sound & Consciousness Institute in San Francisco, participated in the Evolver Learning Labs series “How Sound Heals: An Introduction to Sound Therapy” with Alexandre Tannous & Guest Mitch Nur and is currently learning neuro-feedback and training to become a HeartMath practitioner. Recently, she became a certified Vibrational Sound Therapist with VSA (Vibration Sound Association).
Michelle is also the founder and curator of Create:Fixate, a nonprofit arts organization dedicated to supporting emerging artists and music.
