A graduate of the Healing Arts Center in St Louis, Missouri, Yevgeniy Elperin has practiced various forms of bodywork, therapeutic massage, and energy healing since 2010. Upon completion of the 600 hour program, Yevgeniy joined a team of fellow massage therapists working alongside a local Chiropractor until 2013. Shortly thereafter, he went on to establish Earth Path Massage & Bodywork, a practice dedicated to the utilization of various healing modalities for purposes of restorative, preventative, or otherwise therapeutic treatment applications.
Drawing from a wide range of therapeutic disciplines, Yevgeniy employs various techniques based on the respective needs of each client; an approach that he believes to be one of the guiding principals of his work. He strives to create a safe and comfortable environment for his clients as well as to establish a genuine sense of trust and rapport. Each session is guided by the practitioner's understanding of the individual's needs, utilizing integrative massage, bodywork, and energy healing techniques consisting of Deep Tissue Massage, Myofascial Release, Myoskeletal Alignment, Trigger Point Therapy, Reiki, and Pranic Healing.
Yevgeniy encourages his clients to maintain an active roll in their healing process, educating them about the importance of good body mechanics and ways to minimize undue strain on the body in our daily lives. He often takes time after each session to discuss treatment strategies with the client as well as sharing helpful self-care techniques and stretches that the client can do at home. He also stresses the importance of staying well-hydrated and maintaining a nutritionally-balanced diet and understanding how these factors play into our health and well-being.
Yevgeniy is a proud St Louisan and is a strong supporter of the local community. In addition to his passion for the healing arts, he is also involved with the music and art scene in and around St Louis. He greatly enjoys seeing live music and traveling to various music festivals around the country. An avid bicyclist, Yevgeniy often commutes around the city on bike and loves hitting mountain biking trails whenever possible. His love of nature compels him to spend a lot of time outdoors. He enjoys hiking, camping, and canoeing in the Ozarks and gathering with good friends around a fire. He hopes to one day be part of a wilderness retreat program that helps people rediscover their innate connection to the natural world.
