About Michelle McCarthy
Integrated Energy Therapy® Master-Instructor
Reiki Master Teacher
Distributor of the Amethyst BioMat

Welcome! My name is Michelle McCarthy, and I am the owner of The Heart to Heart Healing Connection. My journey into energy healing began in 1996 when Reiki found me and pulled me out of the depths of depression. I was living in a time I now call "The dark night of my soul", and I was seriously contemplating suicide.

I've heard it said that when the student is ready, the teacher appears . . . and such is the case for me. I found myself on the receiving end of a Reiki session in early 1996, though admittedly at the time I had no clue what Reiki was, nor had I ever heard of it back then. However, what transpired literally saved my life, and by 1999 I knew it was time to change my path.

I had 32 years in the grooming industry, and was self-employed in that field until I decided to close the doors in 1999. In essence, I looked heaven-ward and said, "Ok you guys, I am here on this great planet because of your intervention. So now, USE ME. What will you have me do?" I had taken three levels of Reiki by then, and felt that I needed to be out in the world helping others with this technique.

Much to my surprise, the Universe took my request seriously! I was guided to close my grooming business and begin a small private practice in my home. I began seeing clients, teaching Reiki to friends and family, and before long, I was doing Reiki introductory workshops and volunteering my time in a correctional facility, teaching Reiki to the inmates.

My life has been gently and beautifully guided along the way since Reiki came into it. Spirit brought me into Integrated Energy Therapy® in 2002. From the very first class, I began to incorporate Integrated Energy Therapy® with Reiki; the results were astounding! I knew I had found a wonderful combination of techniques to help people self-heal - physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. I stepped into teaching IET® in 2003. The Center of Being (the home of IET®) began recognizing their most active Master Instructors in 2005 and I have been honored to be named one of their Top Instructors Worldwide since 2005. In 2010, with the retirement of one of the IET® Master Instructor Trainers, I was invited to become one of only 7 people worldwide, at that time, who taught the Master Instructor Level of IET®. As of 2018, there will be 23 people worldwide offering the Master Instructor Level.

It took a few years for me to feel as if I wanted to move my private practice into a professional location, but Spirit once again guided the way, and provided a space where I could offer these heartfelt energy modalities to others AND (perhaps most importantly) to empower them to self-heal, through learning how to do these techniques for themselves.

Today, I combine several energy modalities I've learned over the years to work with clients helping them "release the issues from their tissues" and to reconnect with their inner light and to their soul's purpose. More and more, I find naming what I do less important than simply utilizing the energies of loving intelligence coupled with listening to inner guidance to assist people with gently letting go of what no longer serves them in the way that is perfect for them.

Everyone is on a path, unique to them, yet part of the collective One. It is important today that people be able to release the things that no longer serve them so that they can feel free and at ease in moving forward on this evolutionary journey we call life.

I am so happy you have stopped by my website. I look forward to being of service and to meeting YOU personally.
