"Take care of your body, it's the only place you have to live." - Jim Rohn

Elissa's interest in massage began after she acquired a wonderful hamstring injury during a high school soccer game. 

In the following weeks she began to find it hard to go upstairs or walk for any length of time. Figuring this was a problem for a 17 year old she visited an orthopedic who told her she was fine. After a few more weeks of misery she visited the school trainer and with a few massages and some light weight training she was back to new.

Elissa's interest in massage began after she acquired a wonderful hamstring injury during a high school soccer game. 

In the following weeks she began to find it hard to go upstairs or walk for any length of time. Figuring this was a problem for a 17 year old she visited an orthopedic who told her she was fine. After a few more weeks of misery she visited the school trainer and with a few massages and some light weight training she was back to new. 
She decided there must be something to this and following high school enrolled in massage school. She graduated in 2007 and set out to learn as much as she could about how to use massage for  pain relief. As she went along she began to notice something. When people have pain but are not candidates for surgery, they often seem to have limited places to turn for pain relief, and when they do turn to massage they seem to be often disappointed.  Either the therapist doesn't listen to their specific needs or they don't have training needed to help a particular problem.
Elissa now dedicates herself and her practice to helping each client with their specific problems, injuries, chronic pain issues or whatever else.
She's an ultra runner, athlete, loves her dogs and husband and family. She lives in Lakewood Ohio which is seriously one of the best cities ever! 
Thats her long story about who she is and what she does. So if you hurt, give her a call and she will do her best to help you not hurt!

I’ve been going to Elissa for several years and she is by far the best massage therapist EVER!! There aren’t enough stars to accurately rate her services! Luv ya Elissa!!

Elissa always makes me feel welcome and at ease. She knows intuitively what needs worked on and always checks in with me for pressure and to make sure I’m comfortable. She also shows me stretches and other tips to keep my body feeling good between massage appointments. I tell everyone I can about Elissa because she has helped me so much and I want everyone to feel good!

Elissa is a consummate professional. She doesn't just give you a feel good massage (unless that's what you ask for), she digs into your issues and will treat them if she can. And she'll tell you if she can't. I have a rather complex core issue that I've been working through for a while now. When doctors wouldn't listen to me when I told them it was skeletal-muscular, Elissa did. She did research. Educated herself to treat me better and educated me so I knew what I was dealing with. There is no better therapist out there.

My calf is feeling so much better after just one session. Elissa knows what is "broken" and how to fix it!

Asked me a lot of questions about what I was looking for. Had a lot in common. Was super nice. Will definitely be back.

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!
