Michelle Bardwell is a fixture in Dallas’ health and wellness community. Michelle began practicing natural medicine in Dallas in the late nineties. Over the course of ten years, Michelle traveled back and forth from Texas to France to learn about naturopathy from the industry’s leading professors. Internationally recognized aromatologist Patrick Collin taught Michelle the clinical use of essential oils and hydrosols, while Anne Portier trained Michelle in manual lymphatic drainage, Bach Flower Essences and Oligotherapy. After garnering a comprehensive education through these world-renowned professors, Michelle founded Flower Road, an alternative health institute based in Dallas, Texas.
Michelle’s teachers played an integral part in her education and philosophy, but they also helped her to develop her signature approach. Flower Road’s unique method is based on the four Hippocratic temperaments and Pierre Francomme’s chart of the energetic properties of essential oils. This exclusive Flower Road treatment combines specifically chosen essential oils with traditional Swedish massage and the Vodder lymphatic technique. Flower Road also offers a line of organic, all natural, preservative-free skincare. Luxurious and effective, Flower Road skincare has been recognized by publications both locally and nationally.
A natural and gifted teacher, Michelle enjoys teaching certified continuing education classes for professionals in Aromatherapy. She travels throughout the United States providing seminars and workshops for massage therapists, massage schools and spas dedicated to quality education. Michelle has also developed nonprofessional classes designed for anyone who wants to learn about European-inspired, clinical aromatherapy for daily use.
