Synergy Wellness Center
45 Main St, 4th Floor Hudson, MA 01749
Owner, LMHC, Level II Reiki Practitioner
Michelle’s first career after graduating from Penn State was in Advertising in Los Angeles, where a close friend introduced her to Louise Hay’s, You Can Heal Your Life, which sparked Michelle’s spiritual journey. Despite being fascinated by advertising’s influence of people’s thoughts, Michelle sought more meaning in her work. After a few years in LA, Michelle backpacked through Europe, and upon returning to her home state of New York, moved to Massachusetts, obtained her MA in Counseling Psychology and joined the state’s Department of Children & Families as a Social Worker.
During graduate school, Michelle received Reiki during massages to manage stress, and these transformative treatments led her to receive Level I and II attunements. She joined a community of practitioners for monthly clinics, led by friend and spiritual mentor, Eliza Johnson, and in whose memory Synergy’s energy work offerings will encourage healing.

How do you take an ice bath?
For beginners the best way is to submerge your body into the water while keeping your hands and head above the water. Focus on your breathing and remain calm as the first few minutes are always the hardest. Typically the bath would last about 5-10 minutes.
More experienced methods may include a quick head dunk into the water and keeping hands in the water for full recovery benefits. We also recommend using a colder temperature for a shorter amount of time.
