Elissa Kelly LMT

Designation: Lead Therapist




Elissas’ interest in massage began shortly after she graduated high school. She attended Sanford Brown College in the fall of 2005 and became a licensed massage therapist in June of 2007. SInce then she has found her passion in massage to be trigger point therapy also known as neuromuscular therapy. Her massages are more like treatment sessions as each massage for each client is tailored to the clients specific issues and pains. Her trigger point treatment sessions have helped resolve painful problems such as frozen shoulder, low back pain, headaches, neck pain, TMJ issues, and pain associated with athletic injuries. She also became certified in Thai Yoga massage through the Studio Cleveland. Thai Yoga massage uses passive stretching techniques and yoga poses done by the practitioner on the client. This 1,000 year old modality offers a sense of deep relaxation along with increased flexibility and range of motion. Elissa believes a strong mix of both regular deep tissue work and Thai massage will give her clients the pain relief they are looking for. Elissa has been with Soothe since July 2011.
