“I gained such a wealth of knowledge and experience in Eloise’s class. It was not about deep tissue by the numbers, it was about learning and knowing how to explore, search, identify the “trouble spots” in the area we were working on and relieving/releasing these adhesions and bands and knots. I now feel very confident doing deep tissue work.”

I am forever grateful for this gift of knowledge.”
– Andrew E., Sherman Oaks, CA

“Gives new meaning to the term deep tissue, look at the body and its function- completely different. Better able to help the clients reduce pain and tension.”

“Eloise- beautiful, intuitive, safe, informative, career building by experiment, funny, caring, and patient. Everyone in this class is amazing.”

Deep Tissue Program – Chest and Abdomen

“I had no idea before starting the course how interesting and fun Deep Tissue training could be.  In the other Deep Tissue training I received at another school, I did not enjoy receiving what was mostly deep pressure plowing with broader tools like elbows and forearms. Because I didn’t enjoy receiving it, I didn’t enjoy administering it as much either.   Eloise has delivered a course with great care, sensitivity, and attention to detail. She keeps it very entertaining with her extensive background in healing.  I have learned so much already in just a couple of weeks.  I wouldn’t have believed how relaxing, freeing, effective, non-painful, and fascinating Deep Tissue could be.  It has opened a whole new world in my practice and my clients are benefiting already. I can’t wait to continue the series!”
– Christie D.

“Fun, enthusiastic, thorough and clear”.
– Ariana P.

“Instructor is very knowledgeable, yet perceptive to individual needs. Eloise makes you feel comfortable and is very supportive when you need it the most.”
– Paul K.

“Keep up the good work. The chest and arms class was a blast!”
– Elena C.

“Eloise is great!”
– Anonymous

“Terrific class and most beneficial to help me massage clients correctly and be more informed.”
– Margaret E.

“The Deep Tissue – Chest and Abdomen course was a really wonderful and unexpected surprise! Not only does this tie together the other Deep Tissue courses, but students soon realize that opening up the chest and abdomen help alleviate many common shoulder and back complaints. Under Eloise’s insightful guidance, fellow students resolved back/shoulder issues that I suffered with for years. It’s been two years since I’ve taken the class and the pain has not returned. Clearly, this is Eloise at her best and I can’t recommend it enough!!
– Al Q.

– Anonymous

“Doing the whole four courses was really the way to go. It all came together and I can’t imagine missing a section because they were all so crucial. I want more!”
– Christie D.

“Enjoyed the class thoroughly, especially having Eloise as the instructor. It was marvelous having her show us the “correct” way, the better way to do a move to get the maximum benefit out of it. It was a smart thing to do to have us work on her – that way we were able to get her input and have firmly in place the techniques of deep tissue.”
– Anonymous

“This class is part of ongoing self-discovery. Now that my own psoas and hips are open, I feel more grounded, open and able to give Deep Tissue work in this area.”
– Mary Frances S.
