Elisa is a 2004 graduate of the Center for Natural Wellness School of Massage Therapy in
Albany, NY. She gravitated towards healing touch when she was a teenager. "I not only witnessed the positive impact massage had on me, but also on my Mother after her weekly treatments. I loved that one hour of massage could shape her mood, transform her aches, and lift her spirit. All without a pill or surgery!"
Elisa has been practicing massage for 16 years. She had her own therapeutic practice for 10 of those years in Upstate NY. There, she evolved with her clients. As their needs changed, she explored new techniques to transition them through physical challenges. Elisa has worked with chiropractors, acupuncturists, and other massage therapists to create the best therapeutic outcome for her people. She moved to Asheville in 2013 to join the Grove Park Inn Spa team, where she is currently the Lead Therapist and Trainer. Her practice shifted to a more relaxing course in her career, focusing on the overall experience of guests traveling to the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains for rest and relaxation.
"Because I love what I do, I have longed to return to the reward of working with a clientele where I can witness transformation and growth. This desire has led me to the Alchemy family!
