Elysa is a graduate of the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy. She has been in the massage therapy industry for nearly two years.

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.
