Offering various kinds of massage, Trager, meditation and other natural therapies, the Song of Life Healing Centre is conveniently located 3 min from the town center of Denmark, WA.
Only a short walk from Denmark, we are situated right by the forest in a beautifully quiet spot. We offer a variety of holistic healing sessions as well as retreats for Body, Mind and Soul.
Elsa Luhn is a caring and enthusiastic Massage and Trager Practitioner with many years experience in various forms of healing arts and meditation.
Remedial Massage, a deep and generous massage to soften your tight muscles, undo the knots and reduce pain and restriction caused by stress or injuries.
Relaxation Massage, generous, gentle yet deep with profound effects. Combining a light flowing massage with enough depth for you to feel it doing you truly good, this massage creates the most relaxing and healing experience.
Holistic Massage, tailored just to your needs, this massage relaxes the body, reaches the mind and helps you to learn to let go from the inside out.
We understand that it's not the muscles idea to be tight. Our muscles get their information from the brain, through the nervous system. The deepest relaxation happens when we work not just with the muscles but with the holistic system of our body/mind.
The Trager Approach encourages increased freedom of movement, deep relaxation, lightness and well-being. In a hands-on session you re-discover your natural state of relaxation. Trager helps to dissolve habits and patterns that cause tensions, pain or restrictions.
Meditation is the art of being with what is, as it is, here now. Simply being. At peace. There are many meditation techniques that have evolved over the centuries, and many new ones that may be more appropriate for the 21st century. We can explore various ways of entering the peaceful state of meditation, and help you find which way resonates with youself.
Retreats for Relaxation, Healing, or Meditation are offered at the lovely Bombina Cottages in Denmark ... a place of peace and tranquility, by the forest and overlooking the blue waters of the Wilson Inlet.
Elsa has been practising massage and bodywork for more than 20 years.
She holds the Diploma in Remedial Massage, and has also trained in Rebalancing, Holistic Massage, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Conscious Touch and more.
In 1992 she took particular interest in the Trager Approach because of its gentle, non-intrusive and yet such powerful and effective nature. She is a certified Trager Practitioner, Introductory Workshop Leader and Mentastics Teacher.
Her journey of meditation as well as personal and spiritual growth has brought a fresh quality and a depth of presence and compassion to her work.
Elsa is now half-way through the Somatic Experiencing Professional Training. As she is still practicing and refining her new skills in this trauma healing modality, she is offering SE practice sessions for small donations at this point in time.

Eating as a meditation
When you eat, let your senses open. Be simply present ... take a moment to enjoy the look of the food, the smell ... as you pick up the fork, feel the touch of fork on skin, maybe feel the sunshine or the air on your hands, your face ... slowly raise the food to your mouth, being aware of the anticipation ... and then experience the flavour, the temperature and texture of the food, bite by bite.
Allow your eyes to be soft, your breath to be free.
Eating as a meditation allows you to relax while you eat, to feel more calm and peaceful, more centered.
Embarassing! I was born in Germany, and my english was very basic indeed when I first travelled to England at the age of 15. I was trying to find something in the supermarket, and I just couldn't find it. So I asked a shop assistent: "Where do I find dogs?" - "Dogs?" - "Yes, dogs!" -"We don't sell any dogs." - " You must sell dogs! Cold dogs!" - "COLD DOGS???" - "Yes! You know hot dogs? I want cold dogs." - "Ahh! Sausages!" - "Yes! Sausages!"
