Meet the Founder, Michele Acker "Shelly"
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Imagine Living Well, LLC.
My name is Michele " Shelly" Acker, BS, RRT, LMT, Certified BodyMind Coach, and COPE Certified Health Coach (center for obesity prevention and education),
Reiki 3rd degree.
I have worked in the healthcare field for over 40 years as a Registered Respiratory Therapist . Along with working in direct patient care, I have also served in the role of management, implementing several new programs and working with community members during that time. The longer I was in the medical field, the more I began to believe that there had to be other ways to help patients besides a pill, or surgery, or breathing treatments when they did not need them.
I also came to the conclusion that today's healthcare is not focused on health.
It is focused on disease and being sick.
I began to wonder what could happen if we focused on wellness instead?
What if we could focus on a way for everyone to live their very best life
WEll and Courageously Authentic?
I started exploring alternative holistic health practices over 35 years ago.
My explorations have included becoming a licensed massage therapist, Reiki Master, , Consciousness Mentorship with Richard Moss, MD, Firewalking, dream interpretation, past life regression, sweat lodges, Shamanism trip to Peru, and Myofascial Release with John Barnes .
In December of 2018, I found BodyMind Coaching with Laura Wieck. Bodymind Coaching ties all of my studies together in a way that I can serve you from the deepest level to empower you to take action in living the life you truly desire, bodymind connected.. I look forward to working with you, one on one, in a group class or at one of my bodymind retreats..
