Welcome to élan Healing Arts! élan Healing Arts serves to provide a unique healing experience for the body, mind, and soul. We offer a safe, holistic environment to support change and balance in a body that is in a constant state of flux. In doing so, this allows you an opportunity to hear the quiet within and discover what lies beneath the surface, to get in touch with you!

FAQ - What Can I Expect in a Session?

Before the session
Drink ample water the days before and the day of your session. Adequate hydration allows better circulation, range of motion, and elasticity of skin tone. (Suggested amount: half your weight in ounces, e.g. a 140 pound person is encouraged to hydrate with 70 ounces of good, pure water.)

Do not eat just before your session. Allow the body time for digestion separate from relaxation.

If you are feeling "under the weather", let your body rest. Reschedule for another time when you can get the most from your session!

If you have a rash or sunburn, you may want to reschedule your massage or vibrational sound therapy session; we can still proceed with your quantum/ healing touch session.

Health History and Goals
If this is your first time at élan Healing Arts, please arrive 10 minutes early to complete vour registration and intake form. If you'd rather, you may print the intake form, complete and bring with you to your first appointment.

You will be interviewed about your health history and areas of concern, as well as your goals and expectations of the session.

During the Session
You will lie on a warmed massage table and are covered by a sheet and blanket. Make sure you are comfortable and let the therapist know if you are not!

Tell the therapist if you are cold, do not want an area of your body touched, do not like the music, or are experiencing discomfort with the technique or how it is being applied.

Draping
As a legitimate, professional massage therapist, I assure you, your genitals or breasts, and any other areas you identify, will remain covered. Only the area worked on will be exposed. Session will terminate if this is not understood.

 

To Get the Most From Your Session

Be as open to the process as you can

Relax and try to let your thoughts go. As a thought arises, observe it, and let it go by; then take note of your breath or of being in the moment. One way to do this is to focus on how the touch or technique feels.

Remember to breathe, as this helps you relax. Sometimes people hold their breath when a sensitive area is massaged, but it is best to breathe through it.

In the same way, helping lift your arm or leg activates the muscles. Unless asked to tighten or provide resistance during a stretching technique, relax, allow your body to be dead weight!

Relax... this is your time
