“ELENA BYKOVA moved to NY from Russia, Siberia in 2010.
Armed with a bachelor degree in Mathematics, Elena was on the fast track towards a career in finance, but soon realized how unfulfilling and meaningless her job was. Eventually, she moved to the USA alone and started a new life.”
“My mission is to provide a forum for people to discover and achieve optimal health and well-being. Working as a therapist, a workshop leader and a radio host allows me to support and provide information to the health conscious community”.
“The emphasis is to increase the amount of raw food in ones diet, to cleanse and nourish the body properly, and to understand all the tenants needed for a healthy life”.
“I have explored many paths on my journey to health from achieving an 80 lb weight loss, weaning off birth control pills, managing anxiety, to cleansing from candida overgrowth.”

About 7 years ago, Marla began her journey with eating a more plant-based diet and it changed her whole relationship with food. It excited her whole being! While living in California, she decided to immerse herself into this lifestyle as well as learn more about it by experimenting on herself. Marla eliminated refined sugar, meat, dairy, eggs; the things that she thought she couldn’t live without. Through this experience, Marla found that she had more energy than ever before, lost weight, had more mental clarity, and her skin began to clear up. Marla felt grounded and happier, and more alive than she had felt in a long time.

I have many years experience offering massage therapy and I always enjoy helping others feel better. My work is fluid, connected and relaxing. I do not just rub oil on someone and glide over the surface of their problems, I listen to the body. I work deeply where it is required and how deeply I work is guided by my understanding of trigger points, fascia and body energetics.

I have always had a passion for the healing arts. After working in the Physical Therapy field for over 25 years, I decided to go back to school to pursue my career with Massage Therapy. I fell in love with the idea of using bodywork as a healing and relaxing modality.
