Advanced Myofascial Techniques

Training Completed, 11/2016 The Mastering Myofascial Release seminar focused on techniques and treatment protocols that immediately reduce chronic tension and improve range of motion with minimal residual soreness the next day. I expanded my knowledge of a myofascial treatment approach that utilizes gentle pressure to increase client proprioception while allowing fascia to gently lengthen, stretch, soften, and become more flexible. Fascial tissue can become rigid, and inelastic over time, due to physical and emotional trauma, habit patterns, disease, and the desiccation of tissue that can accompany the aging process. In short, fascial tissue will change from a lubricant to an adhesive. This binding up of fascial tissue causes a great deal of what the patient experiences as stress, tension, pain, and reduced range of motion.

Pregnancy Massage

Training Completed, 8/2014 In this 2 day seminar, we learned the anatomy & physiology of pregnancy as it applies to each trimester, safety issues and contraindications to massage during pregnancy, how to position clients for comfort and safety. Proper draping techniques, positional release techniques that alleviate some minor discomforts of pregnancy were also covered.

Aromatherapy

Course Completed, 1/2017 An Introduction to Aromatherapy course covered an introduction to the therapeutic properties of popular essential oils and the recommended precautions for infants, children, pregnant women and people who have sensitive skin. I learned the various applications and the physical and emotional conditions that warrant essential oil use as well as detailed treatments for a variety of ailments and special circumstances.

I have been going to Elissa for many pains, sprains, injured body parts, tension , stress, etc. and within hours felt much relief and my healing and relaxatipn has been way better than bedore. Some even have disappeared. I continue to have her as my personal massagist and will continue for times to come. I trust in her treatment and personal interest in helping me find relief and quicken my healing. She has blessed hands.

I am a massage therapist and as you can imagine my expectations of a massage are very high. I can honestly say that my massage with Elissa was nothing less than perfect. Her approach to the massage, pressure, and techniques were fabulous. I am very pleased and will be back!

This was my first massage I’ve ever had, so I never knew how much better it could make you feel. Elissa was extremely professional and knew exactly how to set up the space. She could tell just by experience my problem areas and worked on those longer to help ease the pain in those spots. I never knew how much pain my upper back was in at work everyday until the day after the massage I found I could move much easier. Elissa knows what she’s doing and her space/environment starts the experience off before the massage even starts. Can’t wait to book again!

Elissa is a wonderful massage therapist. She listened to all of my complaints and asked questions through out the session to assure that she was addressing each problem area. Also, I tried cupping for the first time. I highly recommend it and her to everyone!

Elissa was fantastic! She really worked out my kinks and knots and recommended a few solutions for my aches in the future. The atmosphere was especially cozy and comfortable and with Elissa's personalized expertise, it truly was a relaxing experience. Thank you, Elissa!

My experience was amazing!! When I walked in the ambience of the room made me feel relaxed right away. Elissa was very professional and made sure I was perfectly comfortable before we started. I had pulled a muscle on my lower back and was in quite a bit of pain. By the time I left the pain was very minimal. I made another appointment right away. I haven't felt so relaxed and good for awhile. I look forward to more theraputic treatments and highly recommend momentum massage and wellness. Thanks Elissa !! ????
