Founders Michelle Hogan and David Levine are married with two kind, and creative boys Elijah 13, and Max 8. They moved to Huntington 13 years ago from the San Francisco Bay area where they met in graduate school at the California Institute of Integral Studies. Both David and Michelle were drawn to Somatic (body oriented) healing practices, and quickly became close friends after meeting in a Somatic Psychotherapy class. Soon they both realized their was much more to their connection than friendship, and their relationship naturally flowed into a romantic partnership.
Since moving to Huntington it has been Michelle's dream to open a wellness center on Long Island. Michelle has felt inspired to bring all of the wonderful gifts that she and David have received from their education in the bay area to their local community.
CIIS, the graduate school they attended was one of the first institutions to integrate Eastern and Western philosophy into their Psychotherapy certification program. David and Michelle have been engaged in conscious embodiment and mindfulness practices for themselves, and with their patients for over 20 years.
They are very excited and honored to present the work of SomaWell to Long Island!
