I've been to a lot of masseuses over the years...and I do mean a LOT. But I am sticking with this one for as long as she keeps rubbin'.
Elisa at Transcendent Touch has that rare and wonderful ability to deliver a serious amount of lasting therapeutic benefit...without using one single technique that feels like it was pulled out of the Spanish Inquisition handbook. In other words, I've had work in the past that made me feel like jelly afterward, but without the rub itself being entirely enjoyable. When Elisa works on you, you immediately float away on a cloud of happy, dreamy relaxation - and then continue to feel amazing for days. Win-win!
Live/work in Lake O? Lucky you! No matter where you are in the city, though, the quick drive down the five is SO worth it for this massage...
Best Massage I Have Ever Had... truly – I am not even sure where to start. I have had chronic pain and surgery in my cervical neck area for the past 10 years. I rely on massage as part of my pain relief treatment plan. I searched the world over for that perfect massage for 7 years. I require extreme deep tissue massage due to my very high pain threshold and it is very difficult to find someone who is able to provide that level of intensity and hit the spots that I need most treated. I was referred to Elisa by my husband and was originally skeptical because I had been to so many women that were never able to do true deep tissue massage, at least not at the level that I require.
I was miraculously surprised from the very first visit that I spent with Elisa. She was very kind, professional and patient. She listened to me tell her my history and what my problem areas were. As soon as we were done with an initial assessment, I experienced the first real deep tissue massage that I have ever had in my life. I am not just saying that. It truly was the massage that I never had. I require 2 hour massages and the intensity of my massage is always perfect to my needs. Yes, I am sore for a couple of days later but I get the pain relief I need for almost 3 weeks.
I can't say enough about Elisa's skills. I have been with her for almost 2 1/2 years now and she never ceases to surprise me when she finds a new way to help me. I would never hesitate to refer her to anyone, and I know that she provides the same level of service to each and every one of her clients. I have referred people to her and they have come back to me to tell me how wonderful their experience was.
Elisa never lets her personal life get in the way of her professionalism. She has recently had some rough times and you would never know that in the service level that she provided. She always stays the course with utmost kindness, empathy, and genuine ability to provide an outstanding massage.
Portland Metro's Best Massage!!! – Hello, I've been fortunate enough to experience the massage artistry of Elisa. Her touch is truly transcendent. I am a fairly athletic person and from time to time I get injured working out. Before I met Elisa, I had recurring shoulder pain from a old rotator cuff injury. As a result, I told Elisa that I only wanted deep tissue massages and that I did not want her to hold back on the intensity level. I was truly amazed and pleasantly surprised at how strong she was while massaging me. She applied the perfect amount of pressure to every area of my body including my injury zone. I was also impressed with Elisa's endurance. She maintained consistent strength, massage strokes, and pressure for 90 minutes without any significant pause or breaks. Each time that I left her massage table, I felt incredibly good. Furthermore, I am confident that her expert massages aided in resolving my shoulder pain. It is also an added bonus that she is simply great to be around or to look upon. I would recommend her massage services to anyone in a heartbeat. GO THERE AND GO NOW!!!
The Best Massage I've ever had! – Elisa has the most amazing fingers I have ever experienced! She starts off slowly on a discovery tour of your body finding all of the spots that need her magical touch. Soon after this she starts working on the knots and spots that you didn't even know were an issue, she knows that if she finds that little tight spot on my leg that I will have an even larger spot somewhere else to mend. Due to my size I normally go for at least 1.5 hours, but if we both have the time, I go for 2 hours.
She has the strongest hands and stamina to work out all of my aches and pains. I recommend her to all of my friends and family!
Thanks for all of your skilled and caring work!
HEALING VS. PAMPERING.......ELISA DOES IT ALL – I was referred by an enthusiastic client of Elisa's following the death of my husband and a tragic accident that killed my mother. I was no stranger of the gym, was strong, pain free and knew no limits. During a 9 day period, I drove 6 days and packed a U-Haul for 2 days while back for the funeral. I fell out of the truck, but no big deal...until 3 days later driving half way accross the US. I could not move, my back hurt so bad. I was tearful with grief. Rather a pathetic lot!! Elisa sit me down and listened. An excellent listener. She ask specific questions regarding troubled areas of my body. Until the deaths, the excessive physical strains and the fall, I had no troubled areas. I was embarrassed; I am a helper and here I was helpless. I did not expect much, because I hurt so badly. During the massage, there was absolutly no pain...just a lot of stretching and kneeding. It was intense without pain. It was heavenly! From my head to my toes and everywhere in between...healing was happening. I am an educated skeptic, so if you find this hard to believe, I understand. After a one-hour treatment, I was pain free. Elisa warned me that I may have some pain to follow; it was minimal/sporatic and lasted maybe 2-3 days. I have been "Man Handled" by some of the best massage therapist around the country, but none as impressive as Elisa.
Elisa is absolutely wonderful! – Elisa is by far the most thorough and talented massage therapist I've ever been to. Not only does she have very strong hands, but she has an excellent sense of the kind of pressure needed. She is also incredibly seamless in her work. There are no pauses or breaks in the massage.
My lower back is constantly out of place and I've never had a massage therapist that was able to put everything back in place. I usually get twinges of pain or discomfort during a massage, but I never, ever have with Elisa. She is by far the best!
Best Masseuse Ever – All I can say is Elisa is excellent! I like the stretching maneuvers she incorporates into her massage therapy. Incredibly strong hands. She is definitely the best. I highly recommend her, regardless of your specific needs.
One of the best in the city – Like other reviewers I have used massage therapy forever - because I insist on abusing my body by running and cycling as hard as I possibly can. Elisa has a perfect touch and the unique ability to balance relaxation with therapy. I wouldn't go anywhere else. she is awesome.
Easily the best I've had in 30 years! – I've averaged 2 massages a week for about 30 years. Nobody has come close to the skills and intuitive personality that Elisa B. brings to the table. Deep pressure, specific areas ( and knowledgeable right down to the Latin muscle/tendon names!), light work. No talking, talking when you want. I don't know how she does it, and it doesn't matter!, but I can be massaged into an energetic state of being, or a just about ready for sleep feeling!
Trust me: I started getting massages at Finlandia Spa in 1976. I've called lots of Willamette Weeks' masseuses, and been to the Hotels and athletic clubs. Nothing or no where comes close! I even bought a table to make it easier for Elisa to say "yes" when I called.
And let's not forget the person giving the massage!! Elisa is down to earth and up in the skies with her humor and intelligence. She's warm, friendly, open, and quick to laugh.
I like to pay more than her asking price, just to show how much I appreciate her. See you tomorrow, Elisa! Andyll
Best massages ever!! – I highly recommend Transcendent Touch (named appropriately).
Elisa takes giving a massage seriously and gives it her all! The massages are wonderful and she's very professional and thorough. Your body definitely benefits from any time spent with Elisa!!
