I was inspired to become a Massage Therapist after years of hard labor working as a cook/baker in the restaurant business.   Seeking relief from the physical pain suffered from long hours working on hard floors under great stress I sought and found healing from the tender mercies of a local massage therapist. Deciding to feed my own soul, I attended the International Professional School of Bodywork in 1994 in San Diego. Desiring further education more focused on specific injuries and pathologies as well as movement and exercise, I attended the Physical Therapist Assistant program at Idaho State University graduating in 1999. Through the knowledge gained from both fields and years of experience, I have developed a nurturing skill set derived from an eclectic array of techniques: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Neuromuscular Therapy,  Myofascial Release and specific orthopedic injury rehab that can be both broad and very specific. I am a Certified Kinesiotape Practitioner as well as an Idaho licensed Massage Therapist and Physical Therapist Assistant.  I believe that each session is a collaborative effort between my client and myself for the most effective and satisfying experience.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Spa services

Elaine was very good and I felt really good after the massage. I slept really well that night and felt wonderful the next morning. Elaine really worked on my neck and shoulder area which are always very tight. She did an excellent job. I would go back again.

I like Elaine's attention to detail. She listens to what I say and where I feel discomfort. She then works very hard to free up whatever is "stuck".

Elaine is very knowledgeable, professional and experienced! She has been a huge help to me over the years and I highly recommend her for massage work! She is very skilled, kind, sensitive, and thoughtful!
