Elaine Russell earned a Master of Music degree and became a professional singer in New York city for many years.
Elaine's interest in massage therapy and CranioSacral Therapy, a subtle healing technique that works on the brain and nervous system, led her to take three levels of training in Swedish Massage, two levels of Neuromuscular Therapy, seven levels of training in CranioSacral and SomatoEmotional Release including the advanced Brain Work, six levels of training in Visceral Manipulation, and a training in Process Acupressure from the Upledger Institute. She was also certified at the Vodder School of Manual Lymph Drainage.
Elaine trained at the International BodyTalk Institute studying all seven levels of treatment. She integrates BodyTalk into her sessions. It is a healing energy work that treats all elements of the bodymind, and spirit, past, present and future. Elaine is a Certified BodyTalk Practitione and is qualified to do non-local healing sessions.
She uses the feedback of kinesiology to discover the most appropriate modality for the person in their treatment. Elaine combines understandings not only from these trainings, but also from her affiliation with Pir Vilayat (she was initiated into his Sufi healing order) and Osho (she was initiated and studied in several of his groups), the great teacher Marshall Rosenberg and Robert Gonzales (Compassionate Communication) and her certifications in NLP and Ericksonian Hypnosis. She is certified in EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and has studied Ayurveda and its subtle understanding of the makeup of the body/mind.

"A true healer does not heal you; she simply reflects back to you your innate capacity to heal.
She is a reflector, or a loving transparency.
A true teacher does not teach you; she does not see you as inherently separate from her, or less than her. She simply reflects back your own inner knowing, and reminds you of the vastness of your being. She is a mirror, a signpost.
And love is the space in which all of this is possible; love heals, and we learn best in a loving field, no threat of failure, no punishment."
