Elizabeth grew up in Southern California where most of her family still lives. She has also lived in the San Francisco Bay Area where she obtained an MBA. From there she moved to Austin, Texas where just like in Portland, people live a healthy, active lifestyle. It was in Austin she found her passion as a massage therapist.

Elizabeth attended The Austin Institute for Massage and Spa Therapies where she learned Trigger Point and Deep Tissue massage. After graduating in 2013, she focused her efforts in barefoot modalities such as Ashiatsu and Ashi-Thai. These techniques allow her to use her body weight to deliver a deep, painless massage. During her time with clients she also incorporates stretching and Lomi Lomi to give a flowing, yet deep bodywork session.

Prior to practicing massage, Elizabeth worked in an office environment for twelve years. Sitting in a chair for most of the day led to chronic lower back pain. Through massage sessions, as well as stretching and maintaining a strong core, she was able to alleviate the pain. Now more than ever, she believes regular bodywork sessions contribute to a healthy lifestyle. For Elizabeth, giving a massage is as therapeutic as receiving one.

In her time off, Elizabeth spends time practicing muay thai boxing, hiking with her two hounds and playing video games with her husband.

The best deep tissue massage I ever had.
by Gayle on Aug 18
As always, my time spent with Elizabeth was pleasant & productive (except for the guy who started pressure-washing right outside her window, which she had no control over - that was an experience in itself). Elizabeth continues to learn new techniques to enhance her treatments.
