Starting in 1996, she trained as a massage therapist at North Eastern Institute of Whole Health, specializing in shiatsu-acupressure and Japanese style chair massage. She is delighted to bring these two healing arts into her current practice.
Taking a winding path, as many people do, Michelle worked in the non-profit sector for many years creating and managing affordable housing opportunities in southern New Hampshire. She has also provided community development, fundraising, and social media services for two web-based mindfulness education companies.
Michelle listened to her deepest heart-wish by returning to her roots in healing and body work in 2012. She enrolled in the New England School of Acupuncture to study Chinese-style acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine and graduated in August 2016. She was delighted to rediscover the power of this ancient tradition of medicine, and even more so to learn how incorporating herbs may exponentially improve a person’s healing potential. Her clinical internships included treating serving children and adolescents in a chronic pain unit at Boston Medical Center, as well as adults at Cambridge Health Alliance and The Shattuck Hospital, all located in the greater Boston area.
Michelle enjoys helping people find greater calmness and clarity in their lives, while supporting relief from a host of ailments. Trained to address a wide variety of health-related issues, she particularly enjoys helping those who suffer from anxiety, depression, digestive disorders, insomnia, headaches and chronic pain.

Linda Simons has been practicing healing for over 35 years. She was drawn to the field of healing when she attended Spiritualist churches in the late 1970’s where she received her training in laying-on-of-hands and distance healing. She brings an intuitive, empathetic approach to her healing work. Linda began her study of Reiki in 2010 and received her Reiki Master attunement from Healing Today in 2011. She has treated family, friends and their pets to Reiki and has performed Reiki on fellow meditators at Unity Boston Church in Brookline.
Reiki is a powerful yet gentle healing modality that utilizes life force energy to restore balance by reducing stress and creating a sense of deep relaxation. Linda believes that the Reiki practitioner is a channel for releasing the inherent healing energy that we all possess. She has seen evidence that Reiki relieves pain, removes energy blockages and accelerates the body’s self-healing abilities. Linda is committed to sharing this tool for healing in a community setting and is very excited about joining the Acupuncture for Everyone clinic because she has benefited tremendously as an acupuncture client herself for the past two years after injuring her back. She is a firm believer in the mind-body connection and energy medicine.
Linda is also a psychic tarot reader and astrologer with over 30 years of experience in giving readings. Healing, transformation and tools for empowerment are the core principles of her readings and healings. She also writes an astrology blog called Dance of the Phoenix.
