Having spent her life studying the mind/body arts (such a yoga & qigong), dance, Buddhism, ecology and sustainable agriculture, a formal study of Chinese Medicine was a perfect cumulation of her life passion for holistic theory and mind/body balance. Michelle has an exceptional energetic and kinesthetic awareness of the body--its movement, its energy and its mind/body connection. She is passionate about the interdependence between our environment, food, thoughts and personal health.

Bhaird graduated cum laude from UMass Amherst with a BA in Japanese Language and Literature. While teaching English in Japanese elementary schools, Bhaird struggled with frequent colds and flus that quickly resolved once he sought treatment with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. Prior to teaching in Japan, Bhaird worked as a paramedic and had been considering a career as a medical doctor. He spent a lot of time working in hospitals and observing conventional medical treatments of modern diseases and traumas. Although he has great respect for conventional medicine, he was soon impressed by the simplicity and effectiveness of Chinese Medicine, along with its absence of serious side effects. This actualization of the “first do no harm” tenet of medicine, together with a life long interest in Asia and martial arts, led Bhaird to the study and practice of Chinese Medicine.
