Michelle is a remarkably talented woman. Because of her clear energetic boundaries, she is able to stay very present to what is happening in a session. Michelle listens with her heart and works from her ancient wisdom and clear knowing. She is kind, compassionate and willing to speak her truth as a way toward facilitating the growth necessary for healing. I have been blessed by her humor, playful spirit and commitment to the beautiful work she does.

We don’t often know what it feels like to be fully alive, or how easy it is to jettison the blocks preventing our vibrant health—and then we have the chance to meet and work with Michelle Turley, someone who can help us right ourselves, foster the experience of freedom and health, and THEN give the tools and the experience of the natural way of being.
Michelle has magic and shares it, whether in her acupuncture sessions and her classes…she tunes you in to your own magic. Everything is energy and what we didn’t learn as children—how to breathe, move energy, let ‘storms’ pass and dance in the inner light of whole self—Michelle retraces the steps, helps to remove blocks gently and expertly—giving us the tools to sustain real change and positive impact. In my world, one doesn’t just do a job of acupuncture or Feng Shui, one must become the job and that’s what Michelle has done, opening herself and those she works with to the forces of healing that lie within each cell – removing the blocks and opening the beneficial healing to be a natural part of life.
There is magic that happens when you show up in Michelle’s office, she is 100% present, listening and then moving you into alignment with your body, mind and spirit’s desire for beauty, love, life, dynamic peace and grace.
Although I keep saying ‘magic’ it’s nothing but our birthright and natural. [“Any sufficiently advanced technology is often seen as magic.” Arthur C. Clarke)
I’m serious, don’t wait to be happy, call her now, just don’t take my appointments 🙂

Michelle is a phenomenally gifted practitioner of several healing arts: acupuncture, qi gong, massage and energy work.
I was referred to Michelle over a year ago for help with a severe bladder/pelvic inflammation and after working with her regularly, I am almost completely healed. Michelle is one of the most positive, uplifting people I know. Her healing abilities go beyond the physical and cross into the psychological and spiritual. In this way, she is completely holistic in how she treats. She is extremely professional, as well as personable, warm and funny. She absolutely loves her work and therefore her energy is a positive and unstoppable force! I feel so lucky to have discovered and connected to Michelle and plan to work with her for the rest of my long and healthy life.

I have known Michelle Turley professionally for approximately three years. During that time, as a family practitioner, I have referred patients to Michelle for medical conditions that range from psychiatric illness, like depression and anxiety, to musculoskeletal ailments, both acute and chronic, to more complex patients whose complaints are often vague and whose workups have been extensive, without any clear etiology for their complaints. Michelle treats all of her patients with compassion and understanding. She emphasizes holistic healing and encourages her patients to become participants in their own healing.
Through acupuncture, massage, and herbal Chinese medicine Michelle physically helps her patients heal. Through these practices, along with energy work, such as qi gong and meditation, she also is able to help her patients discover traits within themselves that may be hindering their healing. Michelle works directly with her patients to help them move forward in their healing.
All of the patients I have referred to Michelle have made positive progress. I have seen patients recover from injuries as well as decrease their dependence on medications for anxiety and insomnia. She has helped some of the most complex patients gain insight into their sometimes difficult diagnoses.
Michelle is a valuable resource in our medical community. She values good patient care, both naturopathic and allopathic, in order to do whats best for the patient. I look forward to continuing to work with her.

The mirror in Michelle’s office speaks for itself. After a session I look in this mirror, standing straighter, more relaxed and looking into my own eyes I say “welcome back Bright Qi Girl.”
Over the last 6 years Michelle has repeatedly healed my mind, body + soul through massage, acupuncture and Chinese herbs. I’ve thrown just about everything at her; carpal tunnel syndrome, lack of focus + energy, caffeine build-up, physical injury from an avalanche and car accidents, miscarriage + pregnancy… You name it.
On top of regular in office treatments, Michelle also performed a remote treatment on me after a bad car accident. And most memorably she assisted in the delivery of my daughter through massage and acupressure.
For injuries or illness, restoration or relaxation I would and do recommend Michelle time and time again. She brings out the Bright Qi Girl in me!

Michelle is FM, and I don’t mean Frequency Modulation! She is Fu*#ing MAGIC! With incredible skill, compassion, knowledge, and powerful intuition and insight, Michelle helps transform fears to meaningful experiences that help you cope, overcome and understand how the things that hold us back are the things and feelings that make us who we are. With the care of a healer and the art of a sculptor, Michelle creates a place that you feel and believe that you are her only client, and there is nothing you cannot over come if you work, breathe and allow your “storms” to yield their truth, so you can move on and live your life so much more abundantly. A true angel and blessing to all she touches.

I absolutely love Michelle! She has a unique and wonderful approach to alternative healing and is extremely knowledgeable. I have seen Michelle numerous times for chronic ailments and within the first few treatments, have already begun to see things shift. She has a very calm demeanor that makes each session very relaxing. I feel very lucky to have found someone who really knows her craft and highly recommend her to everyone.

I feel so fortunate to have found Michelle for acupuncture and massage. I’v seen numerous acupuncturists in the past, and Michelle’s work far exceeds any of the experiences I’ve had before. She not only works on the physical body, but on the whole person, including your spiritual and mental states. The theraputic benefits of acupuncture, combined with Michelle’s natural gift of healing, is a perfect combination and I highly recommend Michelle for treatment.

Michelle’s class last night was FANTASTIC, words cannot describe the experience, I recommend this to anyone and everyone. I have never felt so relaxed and rejuvenated. I have trouble sleeping and slept like a rock. Michelle rocks…. I have been so blessed to have Michelle Turley in my life. Thank you, Michelle.

I want to thank you for your healing powers with acupuncture. When I was a sleep deprived twin mother about ten years ago, you helped me remember how to sleep. You calmed my nervous system and slowed my body from overdrive and anxiety, to peace and calmness. Combined with teas, herbs, and yoga and meditation and a new exercise schedule, with less evening stimulation, I overcame my imbalances and achieved better health and happiness. Christian and Grant are now 11 and Kyle is 14. I am very happy, balanced and healthy. I have optimal blood pressure, cholesterol and body weight. And most of all, I feel bliss every day. Your work is so important!
Many of my patients use complimentary and alternative medicine in pursuit of health and well-being. The boundries between alternative medicine and conventional medicine are not absolute and Michelle’s philosophy of patient care imbodies this very idea. We have shared several mutual patients over the past year and I am constantly reminded how valuable her knowlegde and approach to patient care are to integrated medicine. Michelle is a true healer, treating the whole person, rather than just treating a symptom.
