She gently guides the body, heart and mind as they move together toward a state of wholeness and integration, helping you eliminate pain, restore your well-being and revitalize your zest for life!
Elena is best known for her commitment to excellence, her innovative and intelligent approach, and her kindness and compassion. She gives you the time and attention you need to heal your pain at the root level. If you have been searching everywhere for a solution but have been told nothing else can be done or that it's all in your head, don't despair. Even the most difficult-to-treat problems, such as long-term debilitating pain, fibromyalgia, auto-immune conditions or PTSD due to physical, emotional or sexual trauma can have profoundly positive results.
Elena began her own journey in 1996 as a neuro-endocrinology researcher at the National Institutes of Health where she studied the links between the body, brain and emotions, and then at the University of Maryland School of Medicine where she studied alternative therapies for pain management. She has also traveled extensively and explored the ancient healing practices of both Greece and India. But it wasn't until learning Myofascial Release as taught by John F. Barnes that she experienced the true power of healing touch. In fact, it was her experience with MFR on her own healing journey that showed her how profoundly transformative the work can be. Today, she devotes her career completely to this healing art and to the well-being of everyone she encounters.
In addition, Elena is a Somatic Life Coach and is especially skilled at helping you bridge the gap between the treatment table and everyday life. This extra piece makes the work even more dynamic and transformative, empowering you to fully live your best life!
