Yelena specializes in Deep Tissue, Swedish, Trigger Point, Myofascial Release and Muscular Energy Technique. She studied at Everest Institute and graduated in December of 2014. She loves how rewarding massage is and that she can help others with a healing touch.
The most interesting thing about massage is that she learns something new with every massage and it's always different. Yelena feels all massage is beneficial and can be therapeutic in its own way but Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release and Muscular Energy Technique are by far her favorite. She also likes to incorporate some stretches and nice smooth strokes so the client can feel relaxed yet receive a deeper, effective massage. She feels like there is always a right place and time for each modality, because each body is unique and need a different approach to it. During the massage the tissue itself will let her know what is best and lead her in the right direction, so she enjoys doing a little of everything.
