Registered Massage Therapist
Elysa is a graduate from the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy. She has been in the massage therapy industry for nearly two years. In addition to having an extensive background in personal training and fitness competitions, she has a passion for professional dance. Elysa integrates functional aspects of personal training into treatment and home-care to ensure each patient leaves with the intention of continuing their rehabilitation program at home with confidence.
Elysa considers her style of treatment to be more muscle manipulation than a traditional massage; little creams/oils are used throughout treatment in order to fully manipulate each target area. Elysa is both efficient and effective when addressing her patient’s immediate concerns. Each patient receives a plan of action for their personalized long-term goals.
The Vancouver College of Massage Therapy has allowed Elysa to gain experience in a variety of massage areas including but not limited to: athletic rehabilitation, pregnancy, systemic conditions, migraines, TMJ, and spinal cord injuries. Elysa utilizes fundamental treatment modalities including therapeutic practices such as: deep tissue, trigger point, neuromuscular, craniosacral, joint mobilization (stretching), myofascial therapy, and P.N.F. (Peripheral Neuromuscular Fascilation Stretching).
