Listening to the client’s body is the focus; the treatment unfolds as Elina’s energy and the energy of the client communicate. Each session leads to a unique experience of transformation, release, relaxation and healing.

Lomi-Lomi Nui

Hawaiian “temple-style” bodywork which was originally performed by the Kahunas (masters) in their Heiau (Temple) to transform & completely balance all aspects of self to create harmony & flow in a person’s being. It is an experience that overwhelms the mind with sensation, and uses intuitive movement, breathing, rhythm and focused intention in long, flowing strokes up, down, under and over the body. Lomi Lomi Nui massage begins and ends with setting an intention for the individuals healing and health. Hands, elbows and forearms are used in dynamic, deep movements that mimic the ebb and flow of the ocean. It includes numerous well-known healing techniques, like relaxing massage, acupressure, reflexotherapy

Myofascial Energetic Release (MER) : “LIVE PAIN FREE”.

MER is a comprehensive & very efficient method of working with both chronic and acute pain throughout the entire body. Through deep, yet sensitive touch we work on the cause of chronic pain, overly contracted soft tissue. As the tissue releases, we educate the client on what creates the soft tissue spasm, emotional repression, negative beliefs, as well as dysfunctional habits. MER works with a unique synthesis of deep and soft connective tissue manipulation, joint release, energy and breath work, myofascial unwinding, body awareness training as well as emotions and their expression. Fascia is this band or sheet of connective tissue, primarily collagen, beneath the skin that attaches, stabilizes, encloses, and separates muscles and other internal organs. MER progressively opens the body’s soft tissue layers. This activates the body’s natural ability for self-correction and healing.

Ayurvedic Yoga Massage

AYM is a therapeutic bodywork from India. The patient is guided through a series of assisted yoga postures, and experiences gentle stretching. Deep massage strokes alleviate muscle and joint tension, increase flexibility and harmonize the energy between the body and mind. Medicinal powders and oils are also used during this massage.


Reiki is a type of energetic bodywork, which is safe, gentle and remarkably effective. It is a peaceful and relaxing way to balance energy, leading to clearing of energetic pathways, allowing the body a better foundation on which to heal itself. Private sessions and Initiations from level 1 to Master level are available.

Bars (Access Consciousness)

Bars is a powerful treatment, that works through accessing specific points on the scalp. With this new technique the receiver is taken to a deeper state of consciousness through which limiting belief patterns and blockages are accessed and dissolved, resulting in a healing that touches every aspect of your life. Each thought, idea, attitude, decision or belief that you have fixed in place solidifies the energy and limits your capacity to change anything in that area. You change the energy, you change how that part of your life shows up.
