"I am amazed at what Elaine and her knowledge of sound made possible in my life without my asking for it. I truly feel blessed to have the opportunity to experience the joy and uplilfting energy that I experienced as result of my weekly sessions over a period of months. Each time I arose from the table I felt like to had been to the most delightful place ever without having to effort at it. I would come in to the sessions all tensed up with life - and literally, I would leave with so much compassion and joy I felt like I was floating out and this stayed with me too for days after. It seemed like obstacles started disappearing and actualizing on my own priorities was a natural process for me to be engaged in during this period of time.
I would highly recommend this experience for everyone - it is an effortless way to release tension stress and negativity in your life. I can't think of anyone who wouldn't benefit from the guided hands of Elaine and her bowls." -A.K. ___
"I've been getting sound massages from Elaine for a few years now, and every time I receive one I appreciate the treatment more and more. Like a traditional, hand-on massage, I feel energy channels within my body clear, but the approach to clear the space is much more subtle and expansive in the moment--as opposed to feeling like I'm having tension 'worked' out of me, I feel muscular and organ tension flow out of my body like leaves down a river. It's all-encompassing and very relaxing, in a way that I can liken to no other physical healing modality I've experienced. Thank you, Elaine, for this gift you offer our world!" -A.E. ___
"I was not sure what to expect initially, but was drawn to Elaine's grounded presence when I met her, so I intrigued to experience a sound massage. The sound massage and Elaine's healing presence were extremely relaxing. In this relaxed state, I felt halfway between awake and dreaming. Things that had been on my mind, which felt stuck, became liberated. Afterwards, I had a stronger vision of what next steps I wanted to take in my life. This is true soul medicine in addition to being a lovely way to rest and relax. I strongly recommend treating one's self to this beautiful experience." -O.F. ___
"I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the experience of your workshop this weekend. I didn't think I could feel the bowls at first, but I quickly realized how relaxed I was becoming and how much different my body felt, so I know the vibration of the bowls has a wonderful effect. I especially love how gentle and calm you are, that I feel safe being in a workshop with you. You aren't pushing your beliefs or your practice on to me. You are just there to present it and let me experience it for myself." - E.R. ___
"Even though I've practiced as a massage therapist and have received many, many kinds of bodywork, I'd never had a sound massage before my session with Elaine. I didn't quite know what to expect. Elaine does a wonderful job of explaining what will happen and led me through the session clearly without having to talk and interrupt the experience. As she played the bowls close to my body and on my body, I felt the chatter in my mind drop away (even though I was leaving for work right after the session!) and the rough edges of my energy smooth out. Yes, it was very physically and mentally relaxing, but most of all, I noticed the energetic effects. It felt like the session was able to brush away the cloud of tension and emotion that can get in the way of my heart and soul shining through. When I left, I felt relaxed, open, present, and alive. I felt like the best and truest version of myself. While I think this work would be beneficial for everyone, I think it would be especially helpful for people who are highly sensitive, intuitive, or on a spiritual path. I also think it has a lot to offer people who are working through difficult things like grief, or people who are trauma survivors and want to receive bodywork but are hesitant about undressing (the session is performed while the recipient is fully clothed) or being touched. If you're at all curious about working with Elaine, I highly recommend that you give it a try!" -M.S. ___
"Sound massage was a new experience for me. I have tried sound healing before, but nothing like this. It allowed me space to become fully aware of my physical body, to feel into new rhythms and tensions that I had not experienced before. The bowls sang with a quiet vibration that was inviting and serene. When I found myself face up, they rang with strength and I noticed a strong desire to listen to my body. To seek its offering. Going with no expectation, I found sound massage to be electric, a pull towards presence and a relaxation that drifted me into a profound awareness. Elaine held the space of healing presence, and I could feel her energy next to me. She carries a warming vocal tone that accentuantes the vibration of the bowls. Her space was warm and inviting. I highly recommend this model of healing and I will definitely return." -E.B. ___
