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.

Always great!!! I have many medical issues and each time I get her massages I feel like new and can go on for months before seeing her again.

Amazing massage, can’t wait to go back

I didn't quite know what to expect but as she was stretching my body, she explained what it was for and was very conscious of what I was feeling as she stretched the different parts of my body. I started to feel somewhat like "Gumby" after leaving her office. It was very helpful and the tightness I had was released in areas I didn't think I needed it. I definitely will return for more of this treatment.

Elyssa is the consummate professional and so skilled. She has the unique ability to really listen to where my pain is and address those issues with different treatment modalities (cupping, stretching, massage). She is amazing.

Elissa creates a beautiful experience - from the sensorial elements of great music, nice scents, & soft sheets to her skilled touch. She has great intuition and uses effective movement to stretch, massage, and release tension. I always look forward to my time with Elissa!
