Hey there! I'm Elizabeth from sunny Santa Cruz. San Francisco was my hometown until recently. While completing my Massage Certification in the late 90's, I lived at Esalen Institute on the gorgeous Big Sur coast. Now, serendipitously, I'm back on that coastline. The Pacific Ocean is a profound teacher.
Tai Chi is integral to my massage practice and led me to massage therapy. My teacher, Master Zhang Xue Xin, is a 19th generation Chen Style master. He taught me the importance of centeredness and connection. I use acupressure and trigger point therapy to release stored tension and open energy flow, restoring harmony and balance. I enjoy discovering the unique language of a person's body. Each massage is tailored to the individual. My bodywork treatments rejuvenate and nourish your specific needs.
I specialize in CranialSacral therapy, and have been a teaching assistant for the Upledger Institute in their core CranialSacral classes. It is a deep modality. If your spirit needs a lift, I am also a Focusing Trainer. Focusing addresses the mind-body connection and is a wonderful bridge to inner realms. My massage practice includes a vast spectrum of clients: Musicians, artists, 5-star hotel VIPs, chiropractic patients, athletes, seniors, pregnant clients and infants. It is extremely rewarding to support the body's miraculous, restorative ability.
I am thrilled to be working on Dr. Dot's team. She's created an awesome service for touring musicians. I'm ready to be a comfort for your hands, arms, bodies and art whenever you visit these healing shores!

“To Whom It May Concern:
I have been touring for about 22 years with many different bands (Dave Matthews, Tracy Chapman, Primus, etc etc...)
The masseuse I had today for The Weepies show at The State Room in SLC, Danielle, was perhaps one of the best I have ever had.
Everything from her disposition to her skills. My entire band and crew adored her.
I felt it was important to tell how amazing this woman was, and how she brightened our day.
