About Me

Elisa is a licensed massage therapist who completed training at Hocking College’s massage therapy and spa treatments program.    Her training included Swedish Massage, deep tissue, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, aromatherapy, Ayurvedic and other complementary spa treatments. 

Elisa is a certified Polarity Therapist (APP) and 2004 graduate of the Ohio Institute of Energetic Studies and Bodywork in Columbus, Ohio.  Polarity Therapy works with balancing the energy fields and currents, based on Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine.  Polarity Therapy asserts that the balanced energy flow in the human body is the foundation of good health.  In the Polarity model, health is experienced when:

            1. Energy systems function in their natural state, and

            2. Energy flows smoothly without significant blockage or fixation. 

When energy is unbalanced, blocked or fixed due to stress, physical illness, trauma, or other factors, pain and disease can arise. 

Blockages generally manifest in sequence from the subtle (or energetic) to the dense (physical) levels of the field. Polarity Therapy seeks to find the blockages and release energy to normal flow patterns, and to maintain the Energy Field in an open, flexible condition.

Elisa has been practicing Reiki (pronounced "Ray-key") since 1998 and is a certified Master/Teacher in traditional Japanese (Usui) Reiki.  Reiki is a method of energy work that supports healing of the mind, body, and spirit by enhancing the body’s natural ability to rebalance to a healthier state.  Reiki can be used to heal oneself or others.  It is effective on anything possessing life force energy, including people, plants and animals.
