I know this may sound dramatic but Element Bodywork literally changed my life. I hurt my back years ago and the doctors said I would never run again. As you can imagine I was devastated as running was a true love of mine. My mind also went to, “I want to have kids, how will this back issue effect that?” I went to various doctors all ending with doors closing on the thought of having a smooth pregnancy or running again. The icing on the cake was me throwing my back out literally minutes before getting on a 6 hour cross country flight. At rock bottom I was scanning for different sites for some solution at 3am and came across Element Bodywork. I called at 9am the very next day to try to book an appointment. Within minutes someone called me back saying they heard my plea, and could squeeze me in on their lunch since they were booked for the day. That was the first of many signs that THIS place was different from the rest.
From that point on it was love at first site. My first appointment left me in tears because I was told, “of course you will run again! Why couldn’t you? We will get you up and running in no time.” And they meant it.
Each appointment I was listened to and validated. They were 100% focused in on me and were not distracted by the clock or trying to race me in and out. So many doctors prior were so quick to diagnosis me and usually incorrectly. They never listened to what I was actually saying nor did they ever explain what they thought was going on with my body. I felt like I was just another person they had to see for that day.
I know this sounds cheesy but Element Bodywork truly was so different. They explained to me what was the issue was simply and clearly. They then told me how they were going to correct it. They helped me understand why doing certain stretches would help with my injuries. Again as cliche as it sounds, they gave me hope that I could run again and have a smooth pregnancy as far as my back was concerned.
The massages were therapeutic both emotionally and physically. I truly cannot say enough good things about this bodywork. I usually do not write yelp reviews but it was impossible for me to not share how wonderful this place is! I am not only running but have a gorgeous 6 month old baby girl who I carried pain free!
I highly recommend Element Bodywork. I can guarantee you will not be disappointed!
