“I went to see Michelle for a herbal consultation to see if I could bring balance to my body’s systems. The consultation was incredibly thorough, informative and extremely reassuring having already explored several other avenues. Michelle has an exceptional wealth of knowledge and intuition. Taking my herbs and following her wonderful advice has changed my health and my life dramatically, the herbs make me feel amazing.” Sorcha (Dublin)
“I had 6 Reflexology sessions with Michelle throughout my pregnancy and found them wonderful. Michelle has a really warm and welcoming practice. I would feel both relaxed and energised after each visit and I found myself counting the days till my next session. As well as the physical benefits, my mind and emotions were much calmer. After my pregnancy I had a Herbal consultation and Michelle prescribed a formula to help with hormone balancing and new mammy stress. I have been taking this for the last 6 weeks and I’m feeling back on track again. Hubby and Baby are reaping the benefits too ;)” Lynda (Meath)
