I have had chronic back in a very specific area in my back for years and it has made life in general very difficult. After seeing/trying an orthopedic, chiropractor, steroid injections, and radio frequency ablation, I was referred over to Elissa. Due to my past failed efforts, I did not have high hopes for massage. Elissa was able to quickly identify root cause of my pain. After 4 sessions and me doing regular stretching/strengthening, my chronic pain has disappeared. I have also seen improvements in other areas, which is enabling me to start training again for a marathon! Thanks Elissa!

Elissa takes the time to understand what muscles are bothering you and develops a massage that is unique for you to address those issues. She is excellent with deep tissue massage and has helped me with issues that physical therapy could not. I would consider her a therapeutic massotherapist and highly recommend her.

I appreciated the tips Elissa gave me about stretching the muscles that are tight, and showing me (with an app) a diagram of the muscles at risk. That was very helpful. The massage itself was very good. I have had a lot of massages over the years with different practitioners. Elissa is among the best.
