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.

Elissa is a professional and her office is beautiful. There is convenient parking outside and the entrance is quite easy to reach and is accessible. Elissa takes time to get to know her clients and scheduling is convenient.

Elissa has been my massage therapist for years. She is very thorough in her intake and assessment as well as in her work. Her knowledge of anatomy makes her massages much more detailed and effective. I always feel relaxed and pain free after each session.

I have never been interested in massage. However, Elissa came highly recommended in order to make me stronger and safer in the gym. And now I am hooked. She quickly zeroes in and focuses on where I need the most attention. I look forward to her peaceful space and heated table to relax my mind and body...and get me ready for the week ahead.

Very expert massage. Very professional yet warm and personal. Room needs to be more soothing - too much light from street window and outside noise.
by Karen on Apr 06
Elissa listened to all my issues and was amazing at targeting the areas of concern. I will definitely go back.
