In Memoriam:


It is with great sadness that we must inform our entire Elements family that we have lost one of our beloved family members to cancer.  Christine was one of our massage therapists and was with us from the day we opened up until recently.  She was the consummate professional and the most gracious of women. 

Christine studied massage therapy at Soma Institute and was very passionate about her work.  She really sought to infuse a whole mind/body/soul healing into her sessions.   It was always important for her to have her client feeling complete and whole again.  Not such an easy task, but one that she was able to accomplish.  It gave her great joy to know that she could so profoundly affect someone.  Massage was such a passion for her and it was indeed a great joy to watch her as she blossomed in her profession.

Aside from her professional demeanor, Christine was also a beautiful, carefree spirit with a great love for life, a strong connection with nature, and a great affection for those whom she loved.  She had a twinkle in her eye and a mischievous smile and had no qualms about smothering you with a great big hug.   Her passion and zeal for life was always evident.  She was fun-loving, kind, compassionate, and quietly spiritual.  She was like a tree sprite or fairy; mystical, mysterious, and yet very down to earth and comforting.

Although we had her in our presence for only a short time, her impact on our studio and in our lives was very profound and life-changing.  We will sorely miss her inner beauty and her smile.  But we are all better for knowing such a beautiful soul and we will remember her always in our hearts and minds.

To her husband, Darren, her family and friends, we all send our most sincere condolences and offer our love and support to you.   In honor of Christine, everyone at the studio will be making a donation towards having a tree planted in her name, so that it can grow in her memory for years to come.

Good-Bye for now, Christine….You will be missed but we will always remember you and we will always love and cherish the divinity within you….…Until we meet again…

Be at peace.
