Elizabeth Close, BA, RMT

Since 2005, I’ve been helping people gain peace of mind and ease in their body through my work with shiatsu and massage therapy. At Close Massage Therapy & Health Analysis, I combine over 12 years massage experience with education in mind-body therapies. My passion is helping interpret the body’s signs and symptoms from a unique perspective, in order to move towards greater health and personal freedom.

Each session addresses the needs of the client and is guided by health analysis integrated into hands on treatment.
