Michelle Lynn Battermann, ND, MS, founder and owner of Thairapeutics, has been involved in the health, fitness, and beauty industries since 1993. Through her years of education she has become a Naturopathic Doctor and Holistic Nutrition Specialist, Certified Massage Therapist (NHI, honors), Licensed Barber/Cosmetologist, Certified Personal Trainer (ACE), and Certified First Line Therapist (Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes Health Care Provider). In addition, her passion for dance led her to receive a minor in dance medicine from San Francisco State University (Magna Cum Laude). She is also a certified and registered Reiki Master Teacher (Usui and Karuna), and studied and received recognition as a Shamanic Healer. It is this diverse experience that gives her unique and thorough insights of health, wellness, and beauty for the body, mind, and spirit. Michelle believes that the care of all these aspects of the total body is not just a luxury but is essential to the quality of life itself. Michelle started Thairapeutics in 2003 to create a unique integration of a holistic wellness center that combines health, wellness, and beauty, to bring about awareness of natural healing therapies and products that provide true healing free from the harmful health and environment effects of conventional methods and products, and to provide a relaxing, serene, chemical-free environment. She has dedicated her expertise to an ongoing commitment to excellence in the pursuit of optimal results for her clientele, always striving to help them reach their greatest potential. She finds it gratifying to awaken people along their journey to ultimate truth and helping them find their inner light, their true selves. Her clients have described her as a “true healer” and an “angel”. Her clientele ranges from eco-conscious individuals, to professional athletes (including former pro football player and hall of famer Jerry Rice), and to anyone interested in enhancing their health, wellness, and beauty and seeking positive transformational healing.
