ABOUT ME: My name is Elana, and I am a level 3 reiki practitioner and certified holistic nutritional consultant. Prior to immersing myself in the healing arts, I was a modern ballet dancer, and occasionally a fashion model. I loved those worlds, but ultimately needed to embrace a lifestyle that was kinder to my body & psyche. I am originally from California, where I was intoduced early on to earthy, spiritual living. As a matter of balance in life and cultural perspective, I have also spent many years on the east coast. Currently I reside in Chicago (since 2009). As a multimodality holistic practitioner, I would be honored to assist in supporting your energetic vibrancy, and hope that my gifts as a healer will deepen sensations of having your feet on the ground & your head in the stars. I enjoy getting to know people, and decoding the lexicon of individual evolution. With every soul I have the privilege of focusing on, I apply both intuition and ingenuity ; it is my goal that the time we spend focused on your vitality will affirm in you a love for the gift of incarnation. I create space for you to reconnect with the light of your spirit; to rest in the home of your body, find the center of your being, and anchor into the power of the moment.
