What is Element Bodywork?
Element Bodywork is a system of healing in which all the Elements of the human form are addressed. These components are touched upon in varying degrees in each session.
• Physical – Deep tissue acupressure and muscular reprogramming techniques are applied to heal and re-balance the musculoskeletal system. A series of stretches and exercises may be given to speed up the healing process. If you do the work, you will feel the benefits almost instantly!!! New tools and guidelines are the key in giving you back the power to heal YOURSELF and maintain your health.
• Mental – Every thought or idea you have creates a reaction in your body, especially those thoughts that tend to be on repeat. For example, “I’m not a good runner or I’m not flexible and I’m tight but that’s just how it is” are ways in which we create our physical realities and then cement them by repeating them in our heads over and over again. Yikes!!
Often times changing your dialog within can be a huge component in physical freedom and relief. Together we can explore positive inner dialog that will change your relationship with your body and move you out of any mental blocks or limitations.
• Emotional – We are FEELING beings. We have feelings about absolutely everything including our injuries and physical limitations. Your feelings are all of YOURS to HAVE and move through. My goal is to help you move forward through your feelings. Being stuck in your feelings is not productive or necessary and from my experience, no fun at all.
• Energetic –Your energetic body is a massive component in your health. Repairing and healing your energetic body is as essential as the physical bodywork. I’ll give you tools and systems to clear out and maintain your energy body in all of our sessions.
Definition: Physical manipulation of the human body, using a multitude of techniques, to improve general health, posture or to treat and prevent injuries. Some influences I incorporate are Rolfing, Shiatsu, Fascial Release, Acupressure, Cranio-Sacral, Trigger Point, Sports Massage and Reiki.
Bodywork opens and softens the muscle tissue, decompresses joints and releases toxins stored in tissue and fat cells. You’ll feel longer, more flexible and well balanced. Bodywork can relieve pain immediately in some cases and is very effective as a long term therapy to rewire and realign your body.
All aspects of the body are affected by this therapy. There is no separation in the physical body. EVERYTHING is connected.

“I don’t think I truly knew what body work was before working with Erika Campbell. I’ve now been a client for over 3 years. As a dancer, I use and depend on my body everyday. I was constantly working and living in pain, and my quality of life was severely effected. It was only when my back spasmed and kept me out of work for two weeks that I decided I had to take real steps to heal my body. That’s why I now continue to go to Erika on a regular basis. Her knowledge and practice have no comparison. The work she does is real and incredible effective. Working with Erika is integral to my over all health and well being.” — Ana San Francisco, CA
