Michelle is the saving grace for many a frazzled editor and celebrity; her very presence is calming. A Bohemian upbringing spent travelling around India and Pakistan opened her eyes to alternative ways of life, but it wasn’t until she returned to London and later trained as a beauty therapist and make-up artist that she unearthed her incredible intuition and talent in the field of complementary therapy.
It was while working with renowned aromatherapy pioneer Micheline Arcier that Michelle’s gift for oil blending and massage really took to the fore. It wasn’t long before Vogue named her as one of the top ten aromatherapists in the world alongside her mentor, and her reputation and incredibly skillful hands, not to mention her healing powers, have had clients queuing at her door for over 30 years.
A session with Michelle could incorporate massage, acupressure, reflexology, Reiki or Qigong energy healing; her approach is always tailored to the unique physical and emotional needs of every individual. A meditation devotee herself, Michelle encourages clients to take stock of their lives and value their downtime in order to conserve energy and work through issues, whether personal, professional or physical in nature. Her way with words and therapeutic excellence will rejuvenate instantly, and in the long term her methods give clients the tools to deal with problems and life’s stresses independently.
In addition to treating clients Michelle trains therapists and develops treatments for the heavenly Cowley Manor C-Spa. An experienced therapeutic design consultant, Michelle has helped to create products and treatments for a wide range of luxe, niche and natural brands. Her expertise and aromatherapeutic know-how shines through in every bespoke product within her own Therapie range, with balancing blends second only to her divine treatments.
Our very own Sarah Vine is a Roques-O’Neil regular, and she’s in good company with fans including Pat McGrath, Sting and Yasmin Le Bon. After meeting Michelle, it’s not hard to see why she has such a following. She’s an alchemist, healer and all-round miracle worker- there’s really no one quite like her.
