John Odlum, LMT, CMA, QTP is a Nationally Certified and Connecticut Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as an Advanced Certified Medicinal Aromatherapist,  Reiki Master, TSR practitioner, and an Advanced Theta Healing Practitioner. He is the founder of Tru Elements and resides in West Hartford, CT. After graduating from Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in 2001, John moved to Sedona, Arizona to practice massage and medicinal aromatherapy. Although John had already been working with essential oils for years, it was in the beautiful energy of Sedona that his passion for plant and tree medicine was further realized under the tutelage of Master Medicinal Aromatherapist, Barry Kapp. There, John expanded his connection to and knowledge of the plants and trees, strengthened his intuitive skills, and deepened his connection to the Earth and himself through numerous Native American ceremonies and mentors. He continued his studies in Provence, France where he learned harvesting methods, and the ancient process of steam distillation directly from the farmers. Over the years, John has witnessed profound healing on all levels of being in himself and others with the use of plant spirit medicine. This has led to a passionate and dedicated Earth conscious path; he continued to expand his studies to include crystal healing, studying with renowned author Robert Simmons. He also expanded his knowledge in Energy medicine, studying Reiki, Quantum Touch, Theta Healing, TSR, to name a few. John is always learning, strengthening his connection to the Earth, continually amazed and humbled by the power of botanical medicine and all of Nature’s healing tools. He joyfully shares his knowledge and wisdom from his Heart with others, and is honored to be a messenger for the Trees, Plants and Crystals.

John’s deep love for humanity and Nature has led him to provide a safe space for others to transform and heal themselves through a deeper connection to Earth. John works with clients of all ages; hosting a variety of events such as Guided Essence Meditations; and several other events that are catered to inspire and educate about the Earth and all her inhabitants. John also teaches many workshops and certification courses in Medicinal Aromatherapy to provide an avenue for deeper self exploration via plant spirit medicine. John continues to learn on a daily basis from the plants, trees and crystals. Whether it is from teaching students, working with clients, or from the plants and crystals themselves, he is continually amazed by the infinite knowledge and wisdom Nature provides.
John offers wonderful sessions that are intended to help empower each client on their healing path.  These transformative sessions marry the complementary energies of Plant and Tree essences,  Reiki, ThetaHealing, TSR,  Crystal Healing, along with Guided Meditation, spiritual counseling, Quantum Touch and Intuitive Bodywork to create an unforgettable healing experience. He offers these sessions in the beautiful detox center The Colonics Institute of West Hartford.  For more information or to schedule appointments contact him at Tru Elements : 860-922-6846; you can email him at john@tru-elements.com.
