About Us

Meet the therapists at Back Door Spa!


I have been passionate about health and wellbeing for many years. I have been researching and studying many different modalities in a search for happier and lighter life.

I came to conclusion that not only what we put in our body is very important what but firstly what we get rid of. We all carry a lot of toxic matter which makes us feeling heavy, lethargic and unable to see the light in the end of the tunnel. To speed up the process to wellbeing it’s necessary to cleanse from inside and offload what doesn’t serve us. Same like you wouldn’t pour your drink into a dirty glass. With a Lymphatic drainage and colon hydrotherapy I can help you to do just that. I am a strong believer that there is a lot of beauty and potential within each and every one of us. So let’s offload and see the beauty within you.

I am so very looking forward to meeting you and assist you on your journey of finding the best of you.


"I am so overjoyed with the result of my colonic and lymphatic therapy that despite any embarrassment I have of people I know reading this, I had to post and share!
Having had colonic sessions before I was fully aware of what I was in for - what it feels like, what the machine does etc. What I didn't have any idea about was the high level of professionalism and advice and insight I would receive from Eva my Therapist.
Eva explained everything - what, why, how. She made what can be an unsettling experience almost fun and I was completely comfortable and in safe and trusted hands.
On top of that I feel fantastically energised and light and am booked in for another 2 sessions.
I cannot recommend Back Door Spa more highly for the system, the experience, the people and personal benefits that you feel immediately.
Thank you so much!!!."

I first became aware of my health journey when a reoccurring candida infection went away for good after a kinesiology session. For me this was an absolute miracle and changed my perception of healthcare forever.


I have since spent much time searching for the components that make up vibrant health. From emotional healing, kinesiology, Rolfing, AIM program, energy work, family constellation work to various diets including fermenting, green smoothies, raw food and wheat grass juicing on ocean solids


I have now found simple, yet very effective ways to maintain my well being and it is an utmost joy to share this with my clients and watch them experience their own miracles.


"Michelle is an incredibly intuitive and caring therapist - I came away feeling almost euphoric that the root of my health issues had been identified after many years of multiple illnesses. So grateful to this lovely lady."

Dear Michelle,


Thank you for loaning this great book to me. And thank you for pulling my awareness to some of the terrible fears I was holding on to that were holding me back. Much has changed in my life since our time together. Take care and see you in the future.

​Hi, I’m Sonia…

While practicing massage on retreat, I discovered the beauty of the Feminine which all of us have inside. The warmth, the love, the sweet kindness and also the passion and the aliveness.

I realized how we had lost the deep and intimate connection with our body and The Earth.

In this new discovery I found my purpose: to accompany others on this path of healing, connection and awareness with the tools of La Via della Luna® and Arvigo® Therapy.


I have had the good fortune to have met inspiring teachers from whom I learned not only massage techniques, but also how to move in real care of the people I work with.

I invite you to read about the different treatments I offer and hope to meet you soon!

Sonia is available Wed, Fri and Sat
