DSCN1461Elaine Bradley

Elaine’s Message is Massage. Her knowledge, experience, and sensitivity, will create a treatment for you that will be based on what you need that day. This could be relaxation, deep tissue, focusing on certain areas, incorporating CranioSacral and or Reiki.

Elaine’s belief is that the body was meant to be healthy. Through awareness of one’s body, professional help and self-care the body can and will heal. Whether from injuries, accidents, or stress our bodies will signal us through pain and /or dis-ease that we need to do something differently. Massage brings awareness to the body, increasing circulation, flushing and releasing through the fascia, muscle tissue, lymphatic, and nervous systems, to decrease pain. At the same time bringing greater relaxation to the mind, peace to the spirit and a more complete feeling of wellness.
Elaine turned to massage for relief from neck and shoulder pain from spending over a decade working in an office. It was so helpful that she was inspired to become a massage therapist herself. Graduating in 1998 from Muscular Therapy Institute in Cambridge, Ma, she is a member of National Certified Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) since 1999, Usui Shiki RYPHO in Reiki, holds a certificate in the Upledger Institute Program for CarnioSacral Therapy, and graduated from Finding Inner Peace Yoga Program, as a certified instructor.  Elaine brings her many skills to give each person a treatment tailored to their specific needs. She loves working with people and being a part of their healing journey. Contact information: 508-654-1020.

Integrated Healing Session (IET) ~ Beth D. Breen-Santheson

As a healer, Beth assists others in working with and through their emotions and thoughts to reduce the stresses of everyday life and support the body’s natural ability to heal.

Beth has been working with Reiki since 1999. The practice of Reiki dates back to the early twentieth century. With a very gentle, hands on technique Reiki treats the body by boosting and balancing energy as it supports and accelerates the body’s natural ability to heal.

Benefits include creating deep relaxation and aiding the body to release stress and tension; reducing blood pressure, supporting and strengthening the immune system, improving circulation, aiding in better sleep, helping with acute and chronic conditions, assisting the body to be more fully prepared for surgery with a shortened recovery, improving memory and enhancing creativity.

Beth began studying Integrated Energy Therapy in 2010. Every thought, every emotion, every event is stored in our cellular memory. These emotions create energy blockages. Through gentle therapeutic touch IET locates emotions stored in our tissues and cellular memory and with the assistance of the Angels of Healing painful emotions are released and are replaced with loving, peaceful ones.

The emotions that are released are limitation, guilt, distrust, shame, threat, should, heartache, betrayal, resentment, anger, stress, and fear. These emotions are replaced with innocence, trust, spiritual pride, support, faith, unconditional love, unconditional forgiveness, ease, empowerment, safety and protection.

Beth has been receiving messages from the angels and other guides her entire life. She works with the angels in her healing work as well as delivering messages through Angel Consultations. During an Angel Consultation, you have a conversation with your guardian angels, archangels, guides and other ascended beings to receive information for your highest and best. Please come with a list of questions you would like answered.

This ancient Japanese method of healing is a kind of gentle bodywork. The goal is to balance and promote the flow of blood and qi by palming and thumbing the body’s meridians or energy pathways. The front and back of the body are worked from head to toe leaving you relaxed, yet energized. Like acupuncture, shiatsu utilizes traditional Chinese medical theory to target the ailment source and form an appropriate treatment and specific acupoints are stimulated with finger pressure to create balance and wellness. Clients should wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing and will lie down on a futon mat to receive treatment.

Why Shiatsu?

In addition to the benefit of combining massage, reiki and acupuncture in one, shiatsu treats a wide range of ailments including: • Back, neck or shoulder issues whether caused by injury or stress • Sciatica, fibromyalgia or arthritis • Anxiety, trauma, psycho emotional and sleep issues • Digestive problems, headaches or asthma Additionally, it’s an effective form of meditation offering the possibility to open communication with your angels and spiritual guides. I have been practicing shiatsu since 2008 and take my role as healer to heart. Using a spiritual approach to my work, I believe the real “you” is not your body but a perfect soul of light and love, free of pain and suffering. I ask my clients to open themselves to the possibility of healing, allowing it to take place. Clients often comment on my loving touch which I feel comes from the divine and is something I must offer others. I want my clients to feel safe and loved because they are just that! Shiatsu is an often sought after healing modality and it can be difficult finding a practitioner. If you’re feeling that gentle pull to try it, call today for an appointment; you’ll be happy you did! $45.00 – 30 minutes $75.00 – 60 minutes $100.00 – 90 minutes

It is relaxing and therapeutic. 60 minutes.


AromaTouch® Technique is the application of essential oils along the spine and energy meridians on the back to achieve overall wellness. Eight essential oils are applied in sets of two and in specific order: The first 2 oils are applied for relaxation; the second set is used for immune support; the third set combats chronic inflammation; the last set is a catalyst to drive all the oils in deeper, bringing balance to the body. Followed by Reflexology performed on the feet. 75 minutes


“Symphony of the Cells” was created by doTerra’s Boyd Truman to establish balance and harmony within the body and has been approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. It is a system of applying various combinations of ten essential oils along the spine to be absorbed into the cerebrospinal fluid. There are specific protocols to address inflammation, hormonal balance, or issues in the digestive, respiratory, or neurological systems. Followed by Reflexology performed on the feet. 75 minutes

What is Human Design?
Human Design is a new, cutting-edge personality assessment tool that shows you your unique decision-making strategy, your special gifts and talents, where you carry your pain and your potential for healing and wisdom. Human Design is a synthesis of Eastern and Western Astrology, the Chinese, I’Ching, The Kabbalah, the Hindu Chakra System and Quantum Physics. Your Human Design chart is calculated using your birth date, time and place.
If you’re like most of my clients, you’ve probably attended multiple personal growth seminars and read lots of books about manifesting “change” and creating success in your life. Maybe you’ve even studied specific techniques to help you release “blocks” and get yourself “unstuck”, but you still haven’t seen the results you’ve been hoping for. (Even though you’ve been doing everything “right”.)
When a client comes to me for a reading, the goal is to have them leave with a deep understanding and appreciation for who they are. Together we uncover things that allow them to really love themselves as themselves and see what they are capable of.
Learning Human Design and following my strategy has changed my whole life. It has brought previously unknown happiness, not only to who I was for so many years, but also to who I am now and who I am becoming. I want to bring that joy and clarity to as many lives as possible. I believe that giving a client a Human Design reading is a privilege and an honor. As such, I offer you unending support as you walk your path.
When you receive a Human Design Consultation, my goal is for you to gain a deep understanding and appreciation for who you are. Together we will uncover things that allow you to really love yourself as you are and see what you are truly capable of.
We will create the space for you to live your best life.
