Joey and Michelle would have many paths to follow before the Universe would let them cross paths. We each had a rough journey ahead of us on our life path, that would make us tests ourselves and our beliefs. We both experienced losses that we still carry today. They had the chance to destroy us or make us stronger. We both chose the make us stronger path as we can talk about it now to help others. We were still on separate paths experiencing success and failures still following our paths. The universe brought us together. It would be a little later that Michelle was shown the Crystal light therapy bed that started our journey with Mystic Bayou Holistic and Alternative Health. Michelle and Joey radiate truth and integrity in all their work. They use their knowledge to help others.
Michelle is a gifted and natural-born empath, intuitive and medium who uses her gift to help give people insight into different situations. Michelle has been aware of her ability since an early age. At first, this caused her to have terrible anxiety and panic attacks. These attacks later subsided as she worked with a neighbor who helped her nurture her gift at the incredibly young age of 6 years old. Her neighbor (Betty) introduced her to the metaphysical world which included dream dictionaries and other books that centered on the spiritual and all things metaphysical. These publications covered chakras, hypnosis, alternative medicine, energy healing, aromatherapy, life after death, and the paranormal activity. Michelle is an Ordained Minister, Reiki Master, Crystal Singing Bowl Technician, Crystal Light Therapy Technician and Intuitive Development Teacher.
Joey started his journey in 1974 with Martial Arts. As he got older, he started studying different styles of Martial Arts (Karate, Kung Fu, Tae Kwon Do, Isshinryu, Tai Chi to name a few) discovering how to build up Chi and learning deep meditations. Later in the 80s he would discover in a tournament where he saw his friend get hurt and the instructor went over to his friend and did some hand movements and applied some ointment to his friends injured site and for lack of better words healed him, so he was able to finish the competition.
At this point is when Joey started learning about plant medicine and the way energy flows through the body. With intent and focus, he can help others. The more he studied the more he was awoken to other rabbit holes which lead him on a journey to become an Ordained Minister, Reiki Master, Crystal Light Therapy Technician, Crystal Singing Bowl Technician, Chakra Testing and Balancing, Deep Breath work and most recently to Falun Dafa also known as Falan Gong. Joey is knowledgeable in Aroma Therapy and also an intuitive.
