ABOUT ÉLAN WELLNESS
Hello! My name is Meg, and I am so happy you’re here. I founded Élan Wellness because of my desire to support people toward greater regulation and safe embodiment, and my passion for empowering people to move through and heal from trauma.
I am Born and raised on snuneymuxw territory, also called nanaimo, on Vancouver Island, I have a bachelors degree in anti- oppressive social work from the university of victoria, and work as registered social worker in the health care field.
i competed the somatic experiencing practitioner program in 2022, and am grateful to offer this important, effective, and beautiful modality to my clients.
my practice is eclectic, and i often draw upon systems theory, feminist theory and response based practice, all through the lens of anti- oppression, anti- colonialism, and anti- racism. my intention is to create a safe enough space, and hold that space for people to breathe, to be curious about their experiences, and to enliven and expand their inner resources thereby empowering growth, greater systemic regulation, and transformation.
- Transforming Touch® Practitioner Training Module 1
Transforming the Experience-Based Brain (TEB) is a "Trauma-Informed" modality. The modality is based on the idea that when there are ruptures during early platform development, they continue to disrupt a person's life. TEB incorporates presence, regulation, and relationship to repair these ruptures. This is offered with hands on touch or intentional touch.

The Somatic Experiencing® method is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress disorders. It is the life’s work of Dr. Peter A. Levine, resulting from his multidisciplinary study of stress physiology, psychology, ethology, biology, neuroscience, indigenous healing practices, and medical biophysics, together with over 45 years of successful clinical application. The SE™ approach releases traumatic shock, which is key to transforming PTSD and the wounds of emotional and early developmental attachment trauma.
