Elise Clarke RMT
Registered Massage Therapy
Elise is an RMT with a specialization in chronic low back pain and pelvic postural alignment. As a Registered Massage Therapist for over 9 years, Elise has gained knowledge and experience - both in practice and in her studies - of the body and its rehabilitation. Among her passion for body work and massage is an interest in holistic nutrition, emotional somatic energy, and spirituality. She is deeply rooted in both eastern and western philosophies in health and treatment.
Elise specializes in Active Release Therapy, Medical Acupuncture, Myofascial Release - gentle postural exercises based on the methods of symmetry, and FST (Stretch to Win) - an on table facial stretching technique that is highly effective for muscle tightness that stems from the joint capsule. Elise developed her interest in the fascial system, studying under Tom Meyers in a facial dissection lab in Arizona in 2013.
More than just mechanically focused, one of Elise’s personal vocations is holistic health. This includes the symbiotic relationship between the body and spirit. Elise is motivated greatly by her connection with her clients and a deep sense of service to the entirety of their being. Driven by scientific approach and eastern spiritual understanding, Elise combines what she has learned and works with you to get you back to doing what you love.
When she’s not working, Elise can be found running around with her daughter in the park, salsa dancing, preparing plant based meals, watching criterion films with her husband, and her favourite activity - pretending to gobble up those tiny feet!
