Michelle is a healing justice aficionado, by nature and by trade. She weaves this passion with her background in curanderismo, western herbal medicina, and massage therapy to provide vital, compassionate, respectful, and informed care.  She is a licensed massage therapist (LMT), herbal educator, and wellness promotora.  Michelle founded Agua y Sangre Healing in 2013 to create more for herself and her community - aiming to (re)connect all people with their innate healing abilities.

Michelle is equal parts intuition, smarts, and humor; mixed with a whole lot of heart. At the corazon of her work is compassion and a commitment to providing access to transformative holistic care to all people, without judgement. This QWOC was raised by the midwest, and currently resides in Denver.  When she's not providing healing work, she's spending time with her dreamy partner, amazing friends, and her wild fur-babies.  Michelle's a fan of reading non-electronic books, playing the violin, gardening, and enjoying home-cooked meals with family & friends. 

Michelle is grateful to all the teachers in her life and all those that helped propel her on this path - ancestors, family, and friends.

Se habla español: Michelle offers services in both English and Spanish.

Wow, Michelle is amazing. After one session with her I felt so unburdened, and better/less tense than I've felt in years. I'll definitely be coming back (again & again) ????
