WELLNESS AS ART
Want to learn more about how I can help support you on your wellness journey?
I'm Elaine Santos, Certified Wellness Coach and Founder of Wellness as Art! I offer one-on-one Health & Wellness Coaching, workshops and Guided Imagery, and I'm passionate about helping others reach their wellness goals and live healthier, more vibrant lives.
I grew up in a family environment where healthy living was a priority, however, my personal wellness journey really began when I started taking painting and dance classes as a young adult. I loved the way I felt while engaging in these activities, however, what struck me the most was the subtle inner shift I began experiencing in my every day life. I noticed the thoughts about myself and my body were coming from a more compassionate, kind and appreciative place, and I was feeling more energized and confident. I felt motivated to eat more nourishing foods and to stay active. I began introducing other somatic practices into my life including massage therapy, chiropractic treatment, acupuncture and energy work, and discovered the unique ways in which each practice enhanced my well being.
This experience provided me with the basic understanding that all aspects of our lives are interconnected, and when there is a shift in one area, other areas are affected. I was fascinated by the concept of holistic wellness, and dedicated my studies to learning the vast array of modalities available for health and healing.
I went on to receive my Masters in Integrative Health Studies and certification in Wellness Coaching and Guided Imagery from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. I am passionate about helping others through my coaching practice, workshops and guided imagery sessions, and it is an honor to share the knowledge I have learned over the course of my training and life experience.
