ellen-speaking-2 NO NONSENSE. FUN.

Your audience will love Ellen Sichel!

Ellen Sichel is a teacher, speaker and author who is tired of stress and pain reduction being so darn complicated. When you’re overwhelmed by daily pain or high stress, you don’t need another complex thing to do — you need quick and useful solutions that actually work! Ellen’s talks, workshops and courses are packed with sustainable techniques, group interaction, and relatable content… all delivered in Ellen signature’s roll-up-our-sleeves, humorous, no-B.S. style. As someone who has lived with chronic pain, chronic illness and been a caregiver herself, Ellen doesn’t teach anything she doesn’t live in her own life.

The bottom line: Ellen Sichel rocks!

The ripple effect of Ellen grew and soon our facility was abuzz about this new instructor whose bag of tricks reached far wider than a simple wellness class.”

After my first call with Ellen, I immediately felt like I had just spoken with someone that understood the state I was in and could help me.  Ellen has put together a unique and simple approach to deal with the stress that comes from dealing with disease and illness.  With Ellen’s help, I was able to get through the months of waiting for a proper diagnosis for several issues without losing my mind and still get on with my life.  I now incorporate Ellen’s “Custom Calm” techniques in my daily life knowing that sickness, sadness, and stress will still come into my life – but I am equipped with the tools to tackle the situations and still live a good and happy life.”
