Ellen artfully blends therapeutic massage (working on specific injuries and post-surgical issues), deep tissue, Swedish, trigger point work and some cranial sacral techniques. Ellen is also trained in Chi Nei Tsang, an abdominal organ massage unwinding knots and tangles in the belly using breath and gentle pressure. Her work is thorough, strong and nuanced leaving you feeling integrated, balanced, grounded and relaxed. Her initiation into massage came after taking an anatomy class for her art degree in college. She fell in love with how the body works and how much we can do to keep the physical structure functioning optimally. She is studied in yoga, nutrition, Pilates, core energetic body centered psychotherapy and many forms of bodywork as well as being certified Pilate’s instructor and a lover of dance and creative movement.
