Elena was known to informally practice massage on family and friends, receiving much encouragement from positive feedback and outcomes. After a few years of a career in Social Work, Elena finally accepted her calling in Massage Therapy and became a proud graduate of the Sutherland-Chan School and Teaching Clinic in Toronto. Elena's passion is helping people, and so her approach to massage therapy is to help you heal by addressing the problems that have resulted in pain or discomfort. To do this, Elena takes the time to listen to your experiences, including a full assessment. While at Sutherland-Chan, Elena gained experience treating a wide range of conditions, including motor vehicle accidents, chronic conditions, and sports injuries. Elena also enhanced her education at the Thoracic Surgery Unit at the Toronto General Hospital and spinal cord rehab at the Lyndhurst Rehabilitation Institute. Furthermore, Elena has enriched her background by practicing equine massage, and gaining practical knowledge of pre-natal massage. Along with her fellow colleagues at Absolute Physio, Elena looks forward to ensuring that you receive the highest possible quality of care.
