Elena Jacinta

Welcome, I’m Elena Jacinta a trauma-informed somatic practitioner based in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I help people 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 that it is possible to release many unhelpful emotional, mental and behavioural patterns by engaging our body-mind. I mostly work one-on-one using body-oriented modalities such as trauma-informed yoga, EFT tapping and Somatic Experiencing and I enjoy creating a safe and nurturing space for my clients to connect deeply to themselves.
