“I’ve been going to Elaine for craniosacral fascial therapy as part of my pre-op and post-op processes for a posterior tongue-tie release. While I didn’t have any pain before going in, my neck wanted to rotate significantly to one side and that mostly stopped after the first session. I always walk out of her practice feeling more relaxed and with much less tension. I also appreciate that she spends time learning about other health/movement-related things not directly tied to her specific modality of therapy – she doesn’t go outside of her scope with advice but if you’re interested in other aspects of health or child development, she’ll have some good stuff to point you towards. Overall, I highly recommend her.” -Jake P.

“We have had several CFT sessions with Elaine and will continue to see her regularly. She is warm, kind, and so patient working with my young son. He and I both look forward to seeing her at every visit!” -Deborah B.

“Elaine was fantastic. Very knowledgable and went above and beyond in our session. We will definitely continue to use her for CFT work in the future!” – Haylie W.

“Working with Elaine has helped me tremendously with my neck pain and tension. Her work is gentle yet successful in relieving my symptoms. I also appreciate her talking me through the treatment. It helped educate me on my body and its needs. I wish I could book with her weekly!” -Janell T.

“I took my 10-year-old daughter to see Elaine for CFT to help with tension from a palatal expander. We turned her expander for almost 2 weeks with little progress. After the CFT session, my daughter developed a noticeable gap between her front teeth and we were so excited to see her palate was finally expanding. Relieving the tension allowed the expander to work. She gained more expansion within 2 days of doing no turns (due to normal sensitivity) than she did in the initial 2 weeks. My daughter also mentioned her leg “wasn’t sore anymore” so that was an added bonus! I highly recommend CFT with orthodontic appliances. Elaine is so gentle and great with children!” -Parent

“I can’t recommend Elaine enough. She’s a fantastic massage therapist. She has helped me a ton on my frozen shoulder.” -Mallory L.

“Elaine is truly the best! She is so comforting and the experience is truly wonderful. I left feeling amazing. I would recommend her to anyone!” -Brittany P.

“I love a good massage but almost 6 months pregnant I wasn’t sure how I would feel about a massage, but Elaine explained everything she was doing and made me feel at ease. I would highly recommend her to anyone. It was very relaxing and helped this pregnant mama’s sore back.” -Julia H.

“How amazing fascia is! My son has been mobilizing his tongue, sucking, clicking and sounding out new sounds so much more today! I swear his frenulum is visibly more relaxed, and he his stomping his feet while standing, and starting to cruise around the couch while holding onto it. In just ONE session! Thank you so much for facilitating healing on our journey.” -Parent

“So happy to have found Elaine for my recent lymphatic massage. She was wonderful at explaining the process, since it’s a bit different than other massages and ensuring I was comfortable throughout. She gathered info and listened to my unique needs. Her own healing journey makes Elaine empathetic and compassionate to others on their own journey. The neck, shoulders, and face portion of the massage were especially outstanding. Thank you, Elaine!” -Lindsey S.

“Elaine is amazing and professional! My newborn started sleeping significantly better after one CFT session with her!” -Maggie H.

“So happy with our experience with Elaine! We had her work in our home on my 5.5 month old son for some issues I believe all stemmed from a traumatic birth. She is obviously knowledgeable and was very purposeful about telling me what she was doing and noticing about my son. Elaine gave us tips for working with him at home and was not just looking to get us to book more appointments for her own benefit. I look forward to booking an appointment for myself for issues I’m experiencing. I would definitely recommend her!” -Kirstin M.

“My 12 year old son has been going to Elaine for craniosacral facial therapy for his pre-tongue tie release. He enjoys these sessions because they are relaxing and he can feel the difference immediately. Elaine’s knowledge and kindness make her a pleasure to speak with as she’s always willing to educate us. She’s a wealth of information and genuine in her approach to helping. I’d gladly recommend her to anyone!” -Brenda
