Elena Jacinta

Welcome! I’m Elena Jacinta - a trauma-informed somatic practitioner based in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I help women find relief from symptoms of chronic stress and trauma using the wisdom of their bodies. I believe in a slow and mindful approach to working with the body and the nervous system. I also believe it is possible to release many unhelpful emotional, mental and behavioural patterns by engaging our body-mind. I'm trained in Somatic Experiencing (SE) - a body-oriented approach to trauma healing developed by Dr Peter Levine. And in my SE sessions, I enjoy creating a safe and nurturing space for my clients to connect deeply to themselves.
