THERAPIE Founder Michelle Roques-O'Neil as over 30 years experience in the realm of spiritual health and wellness. Michelle’s love of things spiritual and aromatic began in India, her home for the first two decades of her life. As the daughter of two musicians, she travelled widely across India and Pakistan in her early years, experiencing an array of intoxicating sensory experiences. Home was an eccentric blend of Jazz, eastern and western spirituality and fragrance, activating an intrigue for the arts and all things metaphysical and fragrant.
When she later moved to London, Michelle started to combine her unique blend of creativity and originality with the study of beauty and the science of the body, discovering she had the gift of a healing touch and a natural instinct for aromatherapy and natural fragrance. Her dabblings with oils and herbal concoctions fuelled a thirst to expand and understand the energetics of the body mind and how essential oils influenced it that led her to train for four years with the 'Grande Dame' of the aromatherapeutic world, Micheline Arcier.
Over the last few decades she has become one of the wellbeing industry’s leading experts. She practiced at the prestigious Hale clinic in the 80’s and Harley Street in the mid 90’s and then Violet Hill studios. In ’97 she was invited to design the signature treatment and spa concept for SpaNK, working closely with Nicky Kinnaird. It was at this time that she was voted one of the Top 10 Aromatherapists in the world by Kathy Philips at Vogue. Known for a unique innovative blending style, her magical touch and design consultancy led to collaborations with Cowley Manor, Abahana, Green & Spring, DeMamiel, Mauli, 58 Lifestyle and most recently Park Chinoise fragrance.
