I pulled a muscle in my shoulder last spring and went to 3 other really good massage therapists in the Edmonds area. But it wasn't until I went to Elemental Massage that I got relief that lasted for days. One session with Marisa left me functional and with greatly reduced pain until I could come back for my next apt 5 or so days later. She worked my shoulder until I was completely better. She also resolved a pain I'd been having on one side of my lower abdomen for 4 years that 2 naturopaths, 2 MDs, and a chiropractor couldn't resolve. She showed me what muscles to stretch in my hip, all the while reminding me that she is not a doctor and doesn't give medical advice. I say she was just doing her job to relieve pain, and I've been pain free since I learned how to stretch that hip. These ladies must be among the best. I won't bother going anywhere else.
