  • imgmbMichelle Bardwell

    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.


    Flower Road therapeutic grade essential oils, and other aromatic raw products, are organic and wild crafted when available. To ensure effectiveness and respect, we only work with a few distillers who are also dedicated to quality of product, Fair Trade practices and sustainability of the planet. We guarantee the highest quality ingredients in our hand crafted creams and elixirs with no additions of synthetics and/or preservatives. We act environmentally responsible through our minimal packaging and use only recycled papers and soy inks. Flower Road therapeutic grade essential oils, and other aromatic raw products, are organic and wild crafted when available. Flower Road products are available at the Mandala Boutique in the Dallas Yoga Center.

  • Liz Metrik  Liz Metrik, AAR

     

    Foot, Hand and Ear Reflexology is a scientific art based on the premise that there are zones and reflex areas in the feet/hands/ears which correspond to all the systems of the body. The physical act of applying specific pressures using thumb, finger and hand techniques result in stress and tension reduction which causes a physiological change in the body.

     


    Liz has been practicing Reflexology since 1974. She was trained by Adano C. Ley and Dr. Margaret Berry, D.O., founders of Life Stress Research, Inc., Tyler, TX.  In 2010, Liz furthered her education by studying under the instruction of Bill Flocco, founder and director of The American Academy of Reflexology, Burbank, CA. She is a member of the Texas Reflexology Association and the Reflexology Association of America.

     


    "The study of the science and art of Reflexology became my catalyst in understanding the intricate workings of the human body. I am still in awe of how the reflexes on the feet, hands, and ears affect one's well-being. Subtle, gentle and substantial results are apparent with Reflexology. Passion is a gift and I feel that this passion has been given to me in order to help others in their physical, mental and spiritual homeostasis."
