"Take care of your body, it's the only place you have to live." - Jim Rohn

Elissa's interest in massage began after she acquired a wonderful hamstring injury during a high school soccer game. 

In the following weeks she began to find it hard to go upstairs or walk for any length of time. Figuring this was a problem for a 17 year old she visited an orthopedic who told her she was fine. After a few more weeks of misery she visited the school trainer and with a few massages and some light weight training she was back to new.

Elissa's interest in massage began after she acquired a wonderful hamstring injury during a high school soccer game. 

In the following weeks she began to find it hard to go upstairs or walk for any length of time. Figuring this was a problem for a 17 year old she visited an orthopedic who told her she was fine. After a few more weeks of misery she visited the school trainer and with a few massages and some light weight training she was back to new. 
She decided there must be something to this and following high school enrolled in massage school. She graduated in 2007 and set out to learn as much as she could about how to use massage for  pain relief. As she went along she began to notice something. When people have pain but are not candidates for surgery, they often seem to have limited places to turn for pain relief, and when they do turn to massage they seem to be often disappointed.  Either the therapist doesn't listen to their specific needs or they don't have training needed to help a particular problem.
Elissa now dedicates herself and her practice to helping each client with their specific problems, injuries, chronic pain issues or whatever else.
She's an ultra runner, athlete, loves her dogs and husband and family. She lives in Lakewood Ohio which is seriously one of the best cities ever! 
Thats her long story about who she is and what she does. So if you hurt, give her a call and she will do her best to help you not hurt!

Asked me a lot of questions about what I was looking for. Had a lot in common. Was super nice. Will definitely be back.

I have had chronic back in a very specific area in my back for years and it has made life in general very difficult. After seeing/trying an orthopedic, chiropractor, steroid injections, and radio frequency ablation, I was referred over to Elissa. Due to my past failed efforts, I did not have high hopes for massage. Elissa was able to quickly identify root cause of my pain. After 4 sessions and me doing regular stretching/strengthening, my chronic pain has disappeared. I have also seen improvements in other areas, which is enabling me to start training again for a marathon! Thanks Elissa!

A running buddy recommended Elissa when I was looking for a massage therapist familiar with athletes and the stupid things we do to ourselves. No matter how knotted up and in pain I am when I arrive, Elissa is always able to help. I have and will recommend her to other runner friends as well.

Elissa has always been amazing since the first massage that I ever received from her. She is always trying to improve her skills! I love being her guinea pig for her to try new techniques on! No massage is ever the same. She is very attentive to the needs of her clients. Highly recommended!

I liked everything, especially Elissa’s superb knowledge and understanding of my issues. She took time to listen to my problems and explain how and what she could do to help.

Elissa was fantastic! I did not know what to expect and was worried about lying still for 75 minutes. Elissa was fun and easy to talk with and the time flew by. Not only did the massage feel great, but she also explained why things were flaring up. She also gave some helpful stretches for the future. Highly reccomend to anyone! Thanks Elissa!
