I've  been practicing Massage Therapy & Reflexology for over 16 years now. I'm licensed in WV and have reached the highest level of professional Certification in the United States by gaining my National Board Credentials.  

I'm also the house Professional Herbalist & 

Certified Aromatherapist.

I've built my skills up over the years 

in numerous different settings- everywhere from high end Spas, contracting in professional athletic venues, to providing medical therapy in a Chiropractic office.  Each locale provided me with more varied skills to add to my professional tool belt to better serve you.

I opened Under The Elder Tree in the Spring of 2014 

to apply my knowledge, skills and heart for healing to create a space for people to receive safe, educated 

guidance on health and wellness care.

Taking care of your health shouldn't be a luxury and I strive very hard to keep all of our holistic services, and products at a price point where everyone can afford to make them a part of their health maintenance program.

Meditation Guide

Love brought me to the Ohio Valley from Vermont in 2014. It was tough to leave my home there, but we don’t grow if we stay inside our comfortable little box. I have begun to put some roots down here, and am thrilled to be a part of this growing dream. 
One of the many things I’ve missed about the Green Mountain State is the abundance of health related services such as this. Everywhere across the country people have recognized the need for a more holistic approach to health options. I remember when a similar place opened in my home town; it was revolutionary, and still continues to grow. I have always had a desire to help people in any way that I can.
 When my husband of 4 months was diagnosed with cancer, I felt compelled to help him in any way I could. Reiki brought him much comfort during treatment, and really eased his anxiety. I began my Reiki journey and practice in 2015, and in July of 2017 will achieve the level of Master. 
In modern western medical practice, pharmaceuticals are routinely prescribed. My belief has always been that if we dig a little deeper and find the underlying cause, it would make more sense to deal with it there. 
There are many different types and variations of Reiki practice out there, but mine is a very traditional practice that goes back to the roots, 
Pure Usui Shisko Ryoho Reiki. 
I find it fascinating that all over the world very similar theories evolved regarding health and vitality. 
I have studied many aspects of health and wellness for many years. I look forward to continuing my journey learning everything that I can. 

It is my honor to share the therapeutic benefits of Reiki with you.

Meditation Guide

My First introduction to yoga meditation and self-growth was as a young girl through my mother who practiced hatha yoga and by reading eastern philosophy books.

I have been practicing Bhakti Yoga for over 20 years.
I am certified as a practitioner in Ayurvedic Thai Massage & Reflexology, Integral Yoga, wholistic Pre/Postnatal yoga and 
Children's Yoga, trained in Prana Vinyasa and a birth/postpartum doula.  

I am also a graduate of Cultural Anthropology.
My specialty is in teaching Purnasya Yoga, a style of yoga blending Vinyasa, Integral Kundalini and
 Yin yoga with a strong emphasis on 
alignment and spontaneous movement.

Furthermore, I have taught as an adjunct professor at Camden College in Southern NJ, The University Florida Department
 of Recreational Sports and for The March of Dimes.
I am passionate about treading lightly and gently 
upon the earth we live and leaving as small a
footprint as possible.

I am happy to offer my services to you.

Jessi Byrnes

Yoga Instructor
Thai Therapist

Jessi is a certified Hatha & Vinyasa Yoga Teacher through the Yoga Alliance approved 200 hour certification led by Jennifer Yarrow and Jennilee Toner in Costa Rica in 2015.
Her focus is on proper alignment, safety, & hands on assists.
She is currently working on her 300YTT certification with Frog Lotus, and now Thai Massage Certified through the Triple Gem School of Thai Massage.

Jessi first came to know Yoga in 2007 for an "easy" college credit.
Even though she had been previously interested in Yoga, she had no idea the depth and the beauty which lies within the practice.
Having always been active; a dedicated trained dancer for nearly 20 years, an Equestrian rider & trainer for 25 years, along with various recreational sports, there always comes injury.
Finding many fitness practices left her misaligned and nursing strained muscles and joints, Yoga was the only practice she walked away from feeling whole.
Diving into the world of Yoga, Jessi found that it not only supported her body, but her mind and spirituality as well.  
Now she desires to spread the knowledge, the physical healing, and the depth of spirit with those who are curious and come with an open heart and mind.
