Michelle is an experienced remedial massage and lymphatic drainage specialist who is the founder of the Rhythm Massage Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) course. Michelle has been invited all over the world teaching this modality to thousands of therapists and students. Available in both classroom style and online, her courses are accredited with all major massage associations across Australia, Canada, the USA and the UK. She believes that if everyone in the world received just one MLD, we would live in a significantly less toxic and stressed out world. Michelle was drawn to study her Diploma of Remedial Massage in her 30s. As a martial artist with many years of training and a black belt, Michelle had always used massage as a way to keep training. Without manual therapy, she would not have lasted in karate, so massage seemed like an obvious choice to her. During her training, she started a small home-based practice and slowly but surely built up a regular and loyal client base. She developed an interest in MLD after seeing it could be used for so many pathologies and in many situations where other massage modalities would be contraindicated. Over time, Michelle saw incredible results with MLD, using it every day and specialising in this modality. Michelle ultimately decided this therapy needed to be presented to the massage world as an easy to understand and accessible teaching, so her first course in MLD was written and taught. Countless classes and students have come into Michelle’s care to improve their skill sets and push themselves beyond their limits in the hope of discovering what they are really capable of. Written for anyone struggling with life’s toughest challenges, Michelle is also the author of “Stand Your Ground: Navigate Life's Storms & Discover Your Own Truth, Wisdom & Power”. Michelle looks forward to welcoming you into the classroom or her online school! Read more
