About Us

Healing Elements was founded in 2014 as a vision of integrative and holistic wellness services in a one stop shop. We opened our brick and mortar on Como Ave in the Saint Anthony Park neighborhood April of 2016 and have been expanding ever since. We launched our online store carefully curated with both local and national handcrafted goods back in 2020, and take great efforts in creating meaningful connections with other small businesses and makers. It is one of the most rewarding parts of this business is providing a path and a platform for others to serve through.

In May 2022, we were purchased by new owners Anna and Neil Hultgren and are now known as Carpe Diem Studio, with two locations in St. Paul (Healing Elements) and Minneapolis (Northwind Loft).

We are a dedicated team of creatives, massage therapists, instructors and wellness practitioners. We’re committed to making wellness services accessible to all people. Visit us in person at either of our locations in the Twin Cities area, or stream classes live from the comfort of your home! We offer a wide variety of classes ranging from high intensity workouts, to restorative yoga practices. Our instructors provide a personalized experience through designing authentic workouts and flows to meet you where you’re at!
