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 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 !! ????

My massage was relieving and relaxing. Elissa is an extremely knowledgable and compassionate professional. As someone who has ongoing issues in the hip/glute/lower back area, it has always been hard for me to trust that someone can provide the right treatment. But Elissa erased my fears and insecurities; I felt right at home in her office and during the massage, she always checked on how I was doing and explaining what was going on. Additionally, she used a variety of techniques, such as cupping and taping to solve the problem, which I love! Elissa is a gem, and I will definitely be returning soon!

Overall great experience. First time having a real massage and it was well worth it. It helped me address some concerns with my body and helped relieve a good amount of stress. It made me appreciate not having any tension in my shoulders/neck afterwards that I never noticed was constantly around. I will definitely visit again.

My first visit with Elissa was fantastic. She was thoughtful and thorough identifying any issues and addressing them. I left feeling like a new person and am looking forward to my next visit.
