Integrative Bodywork with Elfi

Elfi practices Integrative Bodywork, incorporating both eastern and western approaches.  She is also a teacher with over thirty five years of professional experience.

Her “hands on” practice includes:

  • Massage
  • Craniosacral Therapy
  • Therapeutic exercise
  • Abdominal Massage
  • Somatic Sex Education

Integrative Somatic Work aims to teach people about their energetic capacities. Elfi notes that conscious breathing and moving  “lets folks taste the life in their bodies. With this experience, they are much more likely to notice and connect with life in others of the same species and all life on earth.” She is increasingly convinced of the importance of cultivating a friendly attitude toward the body, and therefore toward incarnation, and therefore toward life itself. “Our first tasks as humans is to surrender to incarnation. We have to realize that we are here in the body. We’ve got to get here; we’ve got to get grounded; we’ve got to breathe; and we’ve got to be kind to each other. Kindness is a very high form of human evolution.”*

People undertake integrative bodywork with Elfi for many reasons, including:

  • to remember innocence, confidence and the beauty of life;
  • to practice love and respect for the body, affirming and appreciating embodiment and one’s own unique life-expression;
  • to learn sensual communication skills that let you express your desires and boundaries;
  • to feel enhanced spiritual awareness and the sacred connection between Self and Other;
  • for physical healing; for sexual healing;
  • for healing of guilt, shame and confusion;
  • to experience emotional clearing, and letting go of feelings and thoughts that inhibit ecstasy;
  • to feel erotic freedom, feeling safer and comfortable in a setting that allows you to relax and grow;
  • for fun and pleasure.
