Elle brings over 17 years of knowledge to her field of study. Her interest in body work began long before she ever decided to train in the field when she was about 6 or 7 years of age. She was 'made' to work on her mother, who was a pamper hound, for hours on end. Elle would 'pluck' or pull on her eyelashes, massage and scratch her back, massage her head, temples, feet, hands, arms, and legs. As Elle grew stronger, her grandmother, aunts, and uncles who learned of her ablilities requested back rubs and such during familly gatherings especially if someone had head or body aches. At the age of 10 and beyond, Elle's stepdad suffered from extremely painful migraines. She soon learned different techniques of how to remedy that pain by pressing into certain and specific points in his head, back, feet, or hands which she later learned were pressure points and meridians.
She is connected to the practice of massage in a very personal way that does not solely come from being taught in a school. Being trained officially was just a natural extension to what she feels was a gift bestowed upon her by the Creator. After sessions with clients when they've been asked, "How was the massage?", frequently comments have been, "Your hands are magic."
Whether or not that is the case, you will have to experience a session and determine the validity for yourself. Just know that Elle welcomes you wholeheartedly to be a partner in your journey to balanced health and relief from stress in a very professional yet personal way and can't wait to work with you in the very near future!
Shealya is an advocate of the concept: True happiness and satisfaction comes from giving to others. She has found that there are common misconceptions and deficiencies in understanding massage is therapeutic. This fact is what fuels her passion in learning as much as possible to educate herself and others about the benefits of massage; along with being intrigued in building a career in the multifaceted study.
Not only has she done extensive training and research in her field(western and eastern philosophy), but she listens; She listens with her hands to the stories binded in the rugged fibers of each muscle, and behind every crackling bone. This allows her to customize each session to meet and often exceed the needs and goals of her clients.
To many, Shealya’s approach is very technical and anatomy based, yet still maintains a relaxing and rejuvenating atmosphere. She thanks you in advance for allowing her to be a guest in your personal space and team player in unraveling the best You!
Nadine believes in the body’s intrinsic capacity to heal itself, particularly when it receives loving encouragement to engage in deliberate rituals of pleasure. By intentionally carving out a little space for relaxation and joy, we hush our fight-or- flight response, creating a cascade of feel-good chemicals that can empower us to re-imagine and illuminate our lives.
Infused with this philosophy, Nadine’s work, which includes delicious and deeply restorative hands-on Reiki sessions here at Elleworx, is also inspired by compassion and caring for others.She has created a blissful body treat for you (which includes hot towels, warm massage stones and healing chimes) that provides a long-lasting sense of well-being in body, mind and spirit.
Clients feel nurtured, harmonious, renewed and relaxed during and post-treatment.
Nadine is also a Certified Holistic Health Coach, Certified Colonic Hydrotherapist and a“Chocolatista” who has found many ways to share her passion for fine craft chocolate with happy clients!
A luxurious Reiki experience awaits you, focused on the ultimate comfort of your unique body!
