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.

Having shoulder surgery recently, I was looking for a therapeutic massage to help healing...and was very pleased that the massage focused on that area. It was very helpful.

As a nervous and new-to-massage first-time client, I left feeling very happy I chose Elissa. I felt improvement immediately, and look forward to seeing the longer term benefits. It's a comfortable and professional environment. Elissa is very down-to-earth and easy to communicate with. I would recommend, and plan to return.

Everything went really well. I may have preferred slightly more time spent in given areas before moving on. I felt a lot of pain relief the next day.

Elissa is so knowledgeable and professional. This was a great massage experience, and it is helping to resolve serious shoulder and neck tension issues that I have carried for years. I would recommend her highly.

Elissa is very welcoming, kind and professional and takes the time to understand what issues or concerns you may be having before your massage. She also took the time to chat after the massage about areas that were tight and what causes of those concerns could be. I left feeling very relaxed and happy!
