Advanced Myofascial Techniques

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

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

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.

She knew every troublesome spot without me telling her as well as how to stretch and relax those muscles.

As an active person, I try to get massages often to alleviate chronic pain. This was one of the best massages I've ever had largely because Elissa dedicated time getting to know my unique pressure-points and health history. She was able to quickly curate the appropriate sequences and techniques to alleviate a particular pressure-point that had persisted even after months of conducting physical therapy. The session was informative as she maintained open and easy communication about what she was sensing throughout the massage. Would definitely return to work on other pressure-points. Will enthusiastically recommend to friends in the area!
