TESTIMONIALS

Soft Tissue Release

"After suffering from a chronic neck condition for over 4 years, I met Elyse. Until that point, I was in a great deal of pain, and both my mobility and quality of life had been significantly impaired. As a family physician in the community, I had numerous resources available to me & had tried many with limited results: physiotherapy, osteopathy, accupuncture, massage, and working out with a personal trainer.

Elyse is a gifted massage therapist, does excellent bodywork using soft tissue release techniques, which are beneficial for both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions. After a few sessions, my body began to change, my muscles lengthened, my pain diminished and my overall sense of well being improved dramatically. Elyse's Bodyworks and Wellness Center is a comprehensive resource center for all your health related needs. I have already begun recommending Elyse to my patients, and they are also benefiting from her expertise."

"I have fibromyalgia, which among many other symptoms, means I have pain most of the time, and often in many places. Sometimes it is even painful just to be touched. However, I have been getting regular massages from Elyse for awhile now, and it has been a long time since I have had pain upon touch. In general my pain all over is not gone, but definitely better. I have been to many different massage therapists, and while most do the relaxation part well, Elyse is one of the only ones who can relieve my stiff muscles, soreness, and pain that is often deep down. After a massage with her, I actually feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders (where the muscles tend to become very
knotted and painful). If you are looking for a truly therapeutic massage, to fix a problem, then in my experience Elyse is the best!"

"I became a patient of Elyse's when conventional medicine failed me. After suffering with tennis elbow for sometime, I resorted to having a cortisone injection which helped my arm for about a month. When the pain returned twice as severe, I decided to try something alternative. Elyse treated me twice a week for 6 weeks using Deep Tissue Massage, Soft Tissue Release and Active Isolated Stretching, and my arm was completely cured.

I have always had some slight back problems so now I visit Elyse once a month and I find that combining stretching with massage keeps any back problems at bay.

I highly recommend Elyse as she is professional, highly skilled as well as very caring and kind. I look forward to my monthly visits immensely!"

"I have been living with chronic neck pain for 15 years. Nearly everything I tried, including surgery, has produced little or no results. I had gotten to the point where I assumed: coping with pain on a daily basis was part of my life.

For the past two months, I've been receiving Soft Tissue Release treatments From Elyse. It has been tremendously helpful. I had completely forgotten what it felt like to be pain free. It has been amazing to realize that at the end of a day I have been free of pain all day. In fact, this has changed my life!"

"I went to see Elyse because I had a lot of shoulder and neck pain. I went to a chiropractor who treated me and told me it would take a year to heal. A year seemed like a long time to be in pain. After one treatment I felt immediate relief! After just a few sessions, the pain was gone."

"I have had neck and back problems for years that have exacerbated by working at a computer. My neck, shoulders, upper back, lower back and hips get stiff and achy. My hand that holds the mouse also tingles. I have tried many different approaches to relieve the pain such as massage, yoga chiropractic adjustments, reflexology, and acupressure.

All of these methods did relieve some of the pain but the only treatment that alleviated it completely was the Soft Tissue Pain Therapy that Elyse employed. When you are in constant pain, relief is an incredible feeling!"

"I went to Elyse for treatment of an ankle sprain. He relieved most of the pain during the first session using Active Isolated Stretching and Soft Tissue Release which allowed my anklel to heal quickly. Its been about 7 months since the sprain, and I haven't had any recurring sprains or weaknesses in the ankle, despite being very active. Elyse is very professional, respectful, and attentive. I can finally stop hunting around for a massage therapist I trust!"

Active Isolated Stretching

"I suffered from a lower back sprain over 10 years ago, which would come and go, sometimes lasting for weeks. After trying massage therapy and muscle relaxants, I found Elyse. In a few visits, I was completely pain free in my lower back and have been able to stay that way now for months. Elyse has also been able to relieve the pain I had in my forearm using Active Isolated Stretching. I recommend Elyse to anyone suffering from this kind of pain."

I thank you Elsye."
