Hi, I'm Eli
I'm passionate about helping you feel at home in your body by managing pain and stress. Over many years of practice I've discovered that pain is very rarely what it seems... It's much less about the location of the sensation, and more about the amount of stress carried in the nervous system.
Pain - whether physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual - is an invitation to deeper self-knowledge and sustainable wholeness.
My work focuses on assessing, re-educating, and healing chronic postural & injury-induced pain. I specialize in Deep Tissue Massage, Neuromuscular Therapy, Craniosacral Therapy, Massage Cupping, and movement education.
My role as a massage therapist goes beyond the massage table. I see my job as an educator and coach to help you feel your best in the long run, not just after a session. Using in-depth knowledge of the body and psyche I work with you to create Home Care Plans for continued well-being in between sessions. Plans include exercises, stretches, and self-care that work into your life routine.
Core Synchronism - Craniosacral Therapy
Deep Tissue & Myofascial Release
Hot Stone Massage
In September 2018 I traveled to the New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics in Albuquerque, NM. There I immersed myself in this profound form of hand medicine, learning directly from its creator, Robert Stevens. Core is the most gentle yet profound system of healing I've encountered. It has opened a calling to do this work as much as possible! Core supports every system of the body, whether seemingly healthy, injured, or diseased. Incorporating Core into my sessions has changed the quality of rest and comfort of my clients, and many report amazing internal shifts - physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Massage & Bodywork is hands-down one of the most effective ways to healthfully handle stress, decrease pain, and support your body's longevity. I practice several deeply calming & corrective techniques that can move you from "FINE" (freaked-out, insecure, neurotic and emotional) to FREE (fearless, renewed, energetic, and equanimous... yes, I made that one up just now)
With eleven years' experience as a professional Bodyworker, I've learned and created a versatile tool bag of techniques to address and heal pain. Our in-person sessions will address the acute physical/mental/emotional issues, and then we create longer term Home Care Plans so you can take charge of your permanent well-being.
My approach: From working with thousands of clients across the globe I've discovered that pain is very rarely what it seems. While pain shows up somewhere in your body, it's usually the nervous system that creates the pain to communicate that there's too much stress on the body as a whole. TIme and time again I've seen that when we relax the nervous system in a regenerative way, many different aches and pains are healed. This is why I'm a huge proponent of Core Synchronism, the advanced form of Craniosacral Therapy I am trained in.
