Hello My name is Elana. I have lived in the great state of Maine my whole life. I spend a lot of time in nature, by the ocean, hiking and playing with my two cats. My other passion is eating good, organic food. I have a passion for healing others through a mind, body, spirit approach. I’ve been doing Reiki since I was 12. I got certified through one of the oldest practicing Reiki Masters in the West, John Harvey Gray. I have been a certified massage therapist since 2007. I love what I do. If you’re feeling like you want to feel great for your show or other event, I can help with nervous jitters through a variety of modalities including emotional freedom technique, Polarity, balancing chakras and so on. I also love the benefits of aromatherapy so prepare for an experience that helps all the senses relax, rejuvenate and get grounded with me.

I have practiced massage for over 15 years and continue to learn and evolve my treatment methodology. I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a BA in Psychology and Studio Arts(1998), and left feeling that balanced health consisted of more than talk therapy. I continued my studies at the Aveda Institute(2001) in massage therapy, went on to intern with an Ayurvedic physician(2001), and followed that by intensive training at the Yoga Center(2007) for 2 levels of Thai massage. Most recently I went to Thailand to learn reflexology(2008) at the Old Medicine Hospital in Chiang Mai, and this past fall completed a certificate program at the American Academy of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine(2012) in TuiNa, or Chinese Medical Massage.
I practice a blend of the modalities that I know, and am able to treat patients, seated, laying down, clothed, or unclothed. I utilize massage as a relaxation method and to treat specific conditions such as depression, migraines, menstrual irregularities, fatigue, and chronic joint pain, as well as digestive issues, in addition to smoothing and declunking troublesome muscle groups. Massage allows the body to engage in healing itself through unblocking energetic pathways and stimulating organ systems to increase or decrease their activity.
Traditionally, Thai massage is done in loose clothing on a mat on the floor, it stretches the body and works through the energy meridians of the body in order to create balance throughout. TuiNa targets aches and pains and specific medical conditions though a deep systematic terrain, and is based in Traditional Chinese Medical Theory, best known for acupuncture here in the west. Swedish and Esalan massage modalities are deeply relaxing, and productive in allowing a freer flow of energy throughout the body with the use of oil and long flowing strokes and moving pressure.
In addition to my wonder and practice with the body/mind/spirit, I am also a painter and muralist. I love to read about theology, mysticism, and philosophy and to form a greater understanding of our place in this world through people.

Hello, my name is Erin. I have always had a passion for helping others which led to getting my massage therapist license in 2004 and my 200 hour yoga teacher certification in 2008.

Jeeze, I really hit the ground running this time in Berlin. Day after I landed I was up and at em getting new US passport and a facial, next day massaging Paul McCartney's guitarist, Brian Ray , then saw the show that night (I paid 250 euro for my ticket so I wasn't after a freebie, although I was gutted Paul had no time for a massage).
Next day after Macca show (which by the way was good BUT I could have just watched the DVD I have called Back in the US , live concert footage from 2002 from Paul, which was almost EXACTLY like the show I saw here in Berlin December 3rd, 2009. I mean even the dialog was the same "this is when the band goes away and leaves me alone with YOU" etc. sigh. FUCK!!! I LOVE the Beatles and Paul but had I known the set list and dialog was an exact replica I would have stayed home and slept off a big of this jet lag I STILL have. This below is the best shot I could get from the Macca show:
You can see the set list on my blog of that show HERE
Drummer Zac – only 19 years old and already so successful. This band is going places. Seriously. Check them out:
Singer Josh is a super sweet person (also 19 years old!). This band is from London, keep your eye out: http: / / www. myspace. com/youmeatsix
Paramore was headlining, they are HUGE now. Heard they penned a song or two from the Twilight movie sound track so the crowd was 99.9% young screaming girls lol. The band Paramore are SO down to earth. I got along with the bassist and drummer the best. They are both very chatty and fun. Guitarist was a sweety but very quiet. He and the drummer are brothers. I love meeting young musicians who are ambitious, successful and not into drugs. They will go far, I just have a feeling about these guys. Nashville natives takin' over, yo.
The band You and Me at Six are very popular in the UK and slowly gaining respect in Europe and the USA too. Super young as well, dam I felt old around all these 19 year olds! Hello!! haha. Well I massaged for 9 hours straight apart from the dinner break I had and my fingers were sore the next day, the deep tissue massage I give out is BRUTAL. The clients love it but my fingers are not amused the next day.
Berlin is FREEZING, it is too fucking cold to even snow here. Jesus. Anyway, I am running a slight fever, rather cranky and miss my Jasmine so I will stop moaning now and get to bed
