I’ve been to a lot of chiropractors, Michele is unique. She is a healer.
— Seth G. 2016

I live in New York City and have yet to find a chiropractor I like as much as Dr. Doucette.
— J. Baker, 2015

Michele’s teaching is so precise, so clear, so cogent. She creates a very safe space to absorb and integrate the material. Can’t wait for ZB 2!
— R. Michaels, NMT, pilates instructor, 2018

Thank you! This course was an amazing experience, one that I am very excited to use as part of my practice.
— Student, 2018

I love the connection, and gentle discussion of physics and science of the ZB approach. I also love the focus on framing a session for positive outcome and working with the subconscious.
— Erica G, PT, 2018

Getting a ZB session is like walking through a garden path to myself.
— Diane Lussardi, 2010

ZB and the Spirit of the 5 Elements student quotes

Each fulcrum we practiced clearly touched both practitioner and person on the table deeply. All ZB classes have their own “vibe.” In this one, the sense of presence of spirit was palpable throughout.
— Chris Allen, LMT, CZB

Michele is brilliant in her synthesis and conveyance of 5 element theory into the ZB protocol , making the integration of this work practical, expansive and more whole for the recipient. This class goes above and beyond stated objectives. I will be taking this experience into my field and to the table for some time now…to integrate and deepen my self- practice
—Paula Mara Lyons, MT CZB

This class helped me connect to myself and find the purpose I had lost. Going deeper and connecting with the spirit really resonates with me. Finding my spirit with the help of Michele and other ZBers was supportive and comforting. This class was great! — Barbara Kelly-Kinney, PT

This class hits to the core of how the expansive universe of ZB can be contained in such simplicity.
To take Touching the Spirit is to dive head first into the vessel of ZB, and Michele’s perspective and curiosity of this subject should not be missed. In one weekend of discovery in the context of ZB, I start to grasp and trust, in a much deeper and visceral way, why the ZB protocol is so powerful. It allows our deeper creativity, experience, and knowledge to expand and flower into expanded states without ever losing track of the safely and anchoring of ZB itself. —Michelle Leichti, CZB, Violin Teacher

I really enjoyed this class! The explanations of spirit and the fulcrums taught helped me connect into my own spirit which helped me become more open to the clients’ spirit. Learning about the collagen matrix and how it allows communication to travel throughout the body was very thought provoking to me and I feel I will be able to utilize this as a tool in my ZBs. — Colleen Baker, CZB

Michele teaches in a way that my body can hear. — Megan Shewe, OT

After taking ZB and the Spirit of the 5 Elements, I am deeply appreciative of how much more profound our ZB fulcrums can be when consciously embraced by spirit and holding that intention. Michele is a beautiful role model of one who touches the spirit as a practitioner, teacher and as she connects and relates with others. It is wonderful to experience one who so beautifully “walks her talk” in such a profound way. — Veronica Quarry, PT CZB

ZB and the Spirit of the 5 Elements opened up more doors to deeper work on my self and others. I am open to more of what my hands are telling me as I engage the body, the bones.
— Maida Bachman, OT CZB

This course is very powerful. Michele’s teaching is such that I can relate and understand, and it brings me back to the center of my own spirit, so I can better understand who I am working with.
—Diane Bazin, CZB


I was not expecting to learn so many new things. I thought the class would just deepen my previous knowledge. Nice surprise! When I first took a class with Michele, a dozen years ago, I thought her to be an intelligent, professional, and highly knowledgeable teacher of ZB. Now, I see her as a wise woman; all that she was, and now so much more. She just KNEW what we needed as a class.
–Mary D’Amico PT
