Honouring Our Truth
Elisa Peterson, BA, SEP
Certified BodyTalk Practitioner
A healer and teacher who celebrates the joy and compassion alive in all people, Elisa Peterson shares with us her personal experience of self-healing and connecting with inner truth. She encourages us to listen to our bodies and honour its wisdom so we can live healthy, enriched lives.
In her mid-twenties, Elisa began a life-changing journey inward. This gift of self-healing allowed her to reconnect with her body and walk through the memories of childhood trauma with the support of her community. Everyday Elisa is reminded that when we connect with others with a foundation of compassion and understanding, we are empowered to make healthy changes in ourselves and our lives.
Over the past two decades, Elisa has explored the human body and spirit cultivating a broad and rich experience of how our bodies heal. She began her studies in Registered Massage Therapy and continued to explore healing with a genuine passion for health and wellness. Elisa has since studied and received certification in the ancient practice of Qigong Meditation as a Certified CFQ Qigong Instructor and Chinese 5-Elements Acupressure to now offer individuals a new integrative approach to healing called the BodyTalk System. Her recent university studies in Social Sciences have given Elisa further insight into understanding how people approach their own healthcare and how our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health work together to affect and define our health as a whole.
Currently, Elisa resides with her family in Vancouver, BC. She offers BodyTalk healing sessions, Women's Wellness seminars and CFQ Qigong workshops in Vancouver and across Canada. With the teachings from both Eastern and Western medicine, Elisa offers you the opportunity to create a balanced approach to bring healing into your life.
Elisa's vision is to provide others with a safe place to experience the wisdom and truth within their bodies. By creating a welcoming, compassionate environment, she offers people tools such as Qigong to facilitate the self-healing journey. Inspiring change in others is what inspires her work.
"Elisa Peterson is an extraordinary teacher. Her remarkable ability to impart her knowledge, skills and wisdom about qigong in an engaging, caring and gentle manner brings me back to her time and again. From each session with Elisa, I have gained new insights to further my understanding of qigong. The beautifully simple practice of qigong has taught me how to quiet my mind and live more fully in the present. I am forever grateful to Elisa for enabling me to bring ′better karma′ into my life."
