Welcome to Bodono! My name is Eliane Baggenstos, I am a Registered Nurse, Personal Trainer, and Licensed Massage Therapist with additional certifications in Medical Massage, Advanced Sports Massage, Plant-Based Nutrition, and Motivational Interviewing.
After working in Med/Surg, Oncology, Cardiology, Rehabilitation, Hospice, and Palliative Care for many years, I expanded my knowledge in the field of disease prevention and integrative therapies. I studied massage therapy at The Swedish Institute in NYC, Plant-Based Nutrition at Cornell University, I got certified in Evidence-based Health Coaching for Healthcare Providers by the National Society of Health Coaches, and I am certified as a NASM Personal Trainer as well.
Born and raised in Switzerland, I have lived in New York City for 15 years and have traveled extensively throughout the US before relocating to West Palm Beach, FL.
Health, wellness, fitness, and nutrition have always been a passion of mine. I started out as a professional ballet dancer in my teens, and since then have continued various training activities from Crossfit to running, TRX training, weight lifting, bicycling and swimming. I love hiking and kayaking, and I balance my activities with regular yoga, stretching, and meditation practice.
Growing up as the daughter of a chef, I was taught the science of nutrition and the art of cooking early on. By age six I knew how to steam a lobster and how to preserve most vitamins and enzymes when stir-frying vegetables. I helped my mother in her organic garden, and so I learned about the health benefits of a plant-based whole food diet and organic nutrition before even graduating high school. You could say that I was a health foodie before that term even existed.
I love traveling around the globe, interacting with people, and learning about other cultures.
Thank you for visiting Bodono, I am excited to be meeting you.
