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 able to pinpoint muscle tightness and imbalances very accurately and I can see that she takes pride in what she does - very knowledgeable and professional. I suffer from a bad back injury and I feel amazing after my visit. I highly recommend her practice!

Elissa was very kind in still being able to see me when I had the wrong date for my appointment in my calendar and ended up arriving late for my session. Very effective session for ongoing shoulder and neck tightness.
