I am the owner and visionary of Aqua Serene Wellness. It has been my desire to create a place for clients to feel they are receiving personalized attention on their journey to wellness in a relaxed and professional environment. I have combined many years of training, as well as partnered with other professionals to provide an extensive menu of services and products here at Aqua Serene Wellness.
For me, it all began with an interest in the field of energy therapy. In early 1988 I was introduced to the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu®. That profound experience blossomed into many years of study on the road to understanding the complex way the body responds to holistic approaches. I went on to learn massage therapy and graduated from Midwest Academy of Healing Arts. I continued my education to become certified as an instructor of massage therapy. I found such joy in teaching anatomy, physiology and the mechanics of massage! I have also worked as a massage therapist in chiropractic settings and spa environments. In 2009 I made the transition into the field of digestive wellness after my own experience with a serious digestive health challenge.
I am Nationally Board Certified in Massage and Body work, I-ACT Certified Colon Hydrotherapist and certified by Lifestream Colon Hydrotherapy Institute. I have studied digestive wellness at the Loomis Institute of Enzyme Nutrition, receiving my diploma as a Loomis Digestive Health Specialist.
Observing that many of the clients I was seeing for digestive support expressed concerns about skin conditions, I went back to school in 2012 to earn a degree in esthetics. While in school I also earned diplomas of distinction and merit from the International Therapeutic Exam Council (ITEC) in facial electrical and facial beauty treatments. After graduating I went on to learn more about traditional esthetic approaches and became certified in chemical peels from PCA. I furthered my knowledge in holistic skin care by training with the Dr. Hauschka Institute. My philosophy is to nurture clients not only with safe beautiful organic products, but also with the relaxing treatments that are the signature of the Dr. Hauschka Institute. I am proud to be one of the only certified Dr. Hauschka Holistic Estheticians in Indiana and own the only certified center.
Pulling all of this together along with several other certifications, it is my hope to support clients on the journey to their goals for digestive support and vibrant health “from the skin to within”
In my personal life I have two grown sons and a lifelong love for dogs. I have spent many years being involved in English Mastiff breed rescue. I also love to garden and tend to my small urban homestead that includes raising chickens and gardening.
I have been a Certified Massage Therapist since 2004. I graduated from the Midwest Academy of Healing Arts, which required 500 comprehensive hours of massage. I then returned to complete the requirements for the instructor internship, requiring an additional 500 hours. In 2007, I became a national certified massage therapist through the Board of National Certification in Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCTMB).
As a massage therapist, my overall goal is to promote wellness, encourage balance and harmony, and assist in helping the client experience an overall sense of well-being through therapeutic massage and bodywork. I also specialize in other modalities such as Aromatherapy, Raindrop Technique, and Reiki. I actively listen to my clients and ask questions, which allow me to cater each session to the individual needs of that client. It is such a wonderful experience to witness an individual achieving their desired result.
Having the opportunity to share the various benefits of massage, and serving the needs of others is a gratifying and humbling experience. I am continually grateful to be a part of a profession in which I am able to make a difference in the lives of others through the gift of massage therapy.

After working for 28 years as a Registered Nurse, Michelle was frustrated with how many people she met – both personally and professionally – who felt stuck, and didn’t know how to move forward with their lives and their health. Michelle understands this well because she has been there herself. Michelle began her own journey to wellness many years ago after struggling to find answers for exhaustion, brain fog, skin breakouts, histamine-type allergic responses and gastrointestinal issues. Exercise and weight loss became more difficult with each passing year. She was uncertain how she could help others when she could not get results herself.
Michelle’s biggest discovery came with the knowledge that not every program works for every person. You are your own greatest experiment! Michelle also realized that you cannot heal your body by ignoring your mind and spirit. They all work together and they all need to heal together. That is why Michelle became certified as a Holistic Health and Wellness Coach. What Michelle offers is much more than a diet and exercise program. She helps men and women reclaim their lives by improving their health through a customized approach that is unique for them. By partnering with her clients, Michelle empowers them to shift their beliefs away from disease management to the action of intentional living that is grounded in what they value most in life.
Michelle’s programs deliver real outcomes, transformations, and shifts in the way you think. These changes will ripple through every area of your life.

A Step Away Health and Wellness Coaching
Welcome To Symphony Within,
I became certified in Sound Healing in 2011 at the Globe Sound and Consciousness Institute of San Francisco. Although I am not musically talented I was deeply interested in why and how listening to music and certain sounds can affect us in so many ways. Sometimes a song would bring me to tears, some would make me get up and dance or motivate me while others would have the opposite effect. Because of its profound effect on me I decided to study the field.
The field of Sound Therapy is broad. I chose to work with the Sound Table because of it’s deep therapeutic benefits. While lying on the sound table music is not only heard but deeply felt through your entire body sending energy from cell to cell, breaking up blockages whether physical or emotional and brings about a deep sense of relaxation and peace. The music has the ability to bring harmony back into a dis-harmonious state of being.
I am also certified as an amazinGRACE® Energy Healing Practitioner, trained under Annette Muller who is now sharing her modality and teachings across the globe. This is a powerful form of energy healing that uses the universal energy and intelligence that surrounds us all.
