Michelle Robert Smith RCRT™ is a professional Canadian Registered Reflexology Therapist (RCRT™) trained and certified by the Reflexology Association of Canada (RAC) and has been practicing Auricular Acupressure for 18 years. She recently qualified for the position of Examiner for RAC. She is passionate about reseting peoples frequency by squeezing their ears with a rhythmic pulsating finger technique to promote deep relaxation, reduce stress and kill pain. Holistically treating the whole of you, Auricular Acupressure serves to relieve the body of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual energy blockages, restoring the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Raised in the north of Ontario Canada, her Métis grandmothers taught her many wild harvested remedies that would serve Michelle for life. She was first introduced to alternative health therapies while living in Austria in the early 90's when her son encountered medical problems. After returning to Canada in 1995, she immersed herself in the Medicine Wheel Teachings of her ancestors. She established an organic food co-op which operated from 1996 to 2002 in her community at Midland Ontario. Her growing interest in holistic healing led Michelle to accept an opportunity to move away from the business world she’d always worked in towards a more rewarding sustainable one, in service to others.
She began her 20 year career as a therapist after she had felt its effects from a friend, a Firefighter turned Reflexologist in 1999, and had been given a video on foot reflexology and tried it on everyone who would let her, with very favourable outcomes. She enrolled to study at Georgian College in Barrie, Ontario, in 2001 to officially be certified by the longest standing Reflexology Association in the World The Reflexology Association of Canada R.A.C. . She studied foot, hand and ear reflexology, also known as Auricular Acupressure, with RAC instructor Alana Hewitt which launched Michelle into her life long passion of easing pain and discomfort and providing soothing relief from acute and chronic conditions. On the last class of Foot/Hand Reflexology, Alana gave each student an Ear Reflexology session and Michelle's first experience led to her being devoted to working exclusively on ears from that moment on. Her blissful experience has been reflected to her with every set of ears she treats. She has been enlisted to speak on and to share her ancient healing art with community groups and businesses on locally and on an international scale.
When Michelle relocated to Spain in 2008 to practice Auricular Acupressure, she travelled transatlantic aboard the WINDSTAR sail cruiser and it was there, that she gave her first Auricular Acupressure workshop to the passengers aboard the ship. Arriving in Spain, the tiny island of Ibiza welcomed Michelle’s healing hands with open arms and she founded Ibiza Reflexology in 2010.
The more ears she squeezed, the more she was encouraged to teach the world about this phenomenal ear squeezing art. These requests ultimately led to the creation of an online course with an ebook on how to do auricular acupressure to oneself, with accompanying videos and tutorial classes. Created in 2012 I am healer - YOU are the ONE empowers others to take their self healing into their own hands one set of ears at a time!
Recovering from a hand injury requiring reconstructive surgery, Michelle founded Reflexologists Without Borders in 2014, a non-profit group with over 7,300 subscribed members. Reflexologists from around the world participate in expanding our local knowledge on a global scale, to grow awareness of our healing art in every corner of the world.
Learning with each of the thousands of feet, hands or ears she has worked on, Michelle added to her skillset by studying Facial Reflexology in 2015. Bringing a gentle soothing facial technique to release evidence of years of facial strain and stress for her clients.
Overcoming family tragedy with the passing of her matriarchs, Michelle settled in the Kitchener Waterloo Region in 2017 to be near family and introduce auricular acupressure to the area. She is one of currently only 31 Ear Reflexology/Auricular Acupressure Therapists listed with RAC in Canada, of which there are only 11 in Ontario. Michelle is the only one offering Ear Reflexology or Auricular Acupressure in the Kitchener Waterloo Region.
Furthering her reach into wellness, Michelle will be expanding her art in service to one of the areas of greatest confusion in our society by introducing Sexual Reflexology. Educating lovers about the sexual reflexes, which we all have at our disposal on our hands, our feet, our ears and our face, that can be used to expand sensuality and sexuality to proportions before unknown!!! She will be launching her first workshop at Harvest Festival in September 2019, with many more to come in the future. Restoring sexuality to the art of connecting spirit to spirit with our Creator Force within.
