Strings of Serenity was founded on the idea that music and healing are logical extensions of one another. Both share a strong spiritual component and above all, they are both about helping the human condition. In working together whether for music lessons or energy healing, the goal is for you to experience positive changes that will enrich your life.
Elana's violin & viola lessons are holistic on several different levels. She takes into account the whole person when teaching. Elana has a passion for helping those who are injured get back to playing. The methods she teaches use the body as it was designed to move, resulting in a healthy, relaxed technique and robust sound. If an injury cannot be fixed by healthy playing habits, Elana can work in her capacity as a healer to help bring the body back into balance.
Reiki is a Japanese system of healing. It is based on the idea that there is a universal life force energy that flows through each of us. If there is a disruption to this energy, we become sick. During a session, this energy flows from the practitioner's hands, helping to restore balance in the body. This, in turn, can ease suffering. Pain, medication side effects, autoimmune conditions, and many other health conditions can respond. People often feel very relaxed and peaceful after a session.
A typical session is between 40-60 minutes. Sessions can be done either sitting down or lying down, with the client fully clothed
