A diagnosis of chronic migranes in 1985 began Elaine Moranville’s search for a way to transcend the limitations of traditional medicine and trigger inner healing with a pill-free approach. Her investigation led her to reflexology, a foot-massage technique that relieves tension and clears blockages throughout the body by stimulating the 7,200 sensory receptors in the nerve endings of the feet. Now a graduate of the Healing Arts Center School of Massage, Elaine maps out the pathways to self-healing with targeted foot treatments, including energy-balancing reiki sessions, and Kansa Vatki, an ancient Indian technique that harnesses ghee’s heat-storing power. Elaine also mends stressed muscles with traditional massages, which incorporate Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone techniques to ease soreness and heat bowls of posttreatment mulligatawny.
