"As a touring musician, I've seen lots of massage and physical therapists all over the country. Ellyn has the sensitivity to know what needs to be done and the experience, knowledge and technique to know how to take care of it. Ellyn is the best!"
-Paul Richards, Musician, The California Guitar Trio
"Ellyn's hands worked wonders on me - got both body and mind straight on some issues."

Ellyn’s teaching is supercharged by her incisive and embodied intelligence; her no-nonsense irreverent pragmatism cuts across methodological and generational boundaries in just the right way to uniquely inspire her students.

"Ellyn has used her skills in Rolfing to release the tissue and allow my body to heal and recover after my hard workouts."
“Ellyn is a natural born teacher with many years of experience instructing bodyworkers. She possesses the critical skills to communicate complex and sophisticated concepts in a clear and intelligible way while bringing a liveliness and humor to the classroom. That is a rare combination and makes the time spent under her instruction worth every minute.”
-George Sullivan, CAR™, Faculty member of www.advanced-trainings.com
“Ellyn and her continuing education classes are truly inspirational. The first class I took with her, I was hooked and keeping coming back for more. She is incredibly knowledgeable but also very relatable which makes for a powerful teacher. She constantly encourages her students to interact, ask questions, give feedback and be present which allows for students to be fully engaged and tuned in. She splits up class time by allowing time for lecture and hands on work, making sure we understand the anatomy and mental aspect, so we can take that knowledge and use it when we practice our newly learned techniques. When students are working hands on, she makes sure to walk around the classroom and give each person individualized attention. Making sure they feel completely comfortable and confident in what they are doing, have intention and purpose in their work, and using the property body mechanics so that they do the massage at their smartest and most efficient. I will continue to attend her classes because I learn something new every time and appreciate the review. Thanks for inspiring me to be a better and more aware therapist!”

"I have been through several major life changes recently, including the loss of 40 pounds and the termination of a significant relationship. While therapy helped with the necessary mental changes, Rolfing with Ellyn became the key to healing my physical self.”
“You literally have changed my life and world and I owe you a tremendous amount of gratitude. Thank you."
“It is my belief that no modality is any better than the practitioner behind it and Ellyn is an extremely competent therapist who works with compassion, understanding and integrity, creating a safe environment."
“Ellyn is an imaginative instructor, I say that because she brings subjects to life that often times can be boring and repetitive. She brings humor, real-life examples, hands-on instruction that is individualized and a keen sense of wonder for the human body. She sparks imagination in her students through visual aids, interactive practicing of newly learned and often forgotten techniques. Laughter is a key ingredient, respectful work and thought-provoking questions makes me keep returning to learn more. I would totally recommend her classes without hesitation.
-Julie Toston, LMT
