Ellisa Kast

Rochester, New will always be my home town, but I love living in Florida. Leaving a career as a court clerk in the Town of Farmington, N.Y. in 1993, I moved to Gainesville, Florida to attend Florida School of Massage. In addition to the massage curriculum, I completed the Sports Massage Training program and received certification in Sports Massage. Graduating in 1994, I received National Certification in Massage & Bodywork and I am a Licensed Massage Therapist in Florida and New York and have practiced in both States.

As a certified sports massage therapist, I have been a member of the Tampa Bay Chapter (FSMTA) and the Florida Chapter Sports Massage Teams. In 2002, Jerry & I had the exciting opportunity to be members of the AMTA Sports Massage Team and work with the athletes at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics/Paralympics games. (The Paralympics Games are the world's premier gathering of disabled athletes.)

I offer relaxation, therapeutic and sports massage, with a specialty in treating TMJ disorders. As a massage therapist, I offered my knowledge, skills, compassionate hands, and a strong focus on healing to each individual I work with.

I have served on the boards of the Florida State Massage Therapy Association (Tampa Bay Chapter), the American Massage Therapy Association (Florida Chapter) as well as a co-chair of education( FSMTA Tampa Bay Chapter).

Currently operating,” Alive, Aware & Well – A Wellness Enterprise," in Clearwater, Florida, we offer several modalities of Massage and Body Work Therapies and Active Isolated Stretching & Strengthening. Our client base ranges from professional, college, elementary/high school and week-end warrior athletes, occupational athletes and anyone who is trying to improve their everyday functional/pain free activities.

Outside of my practice, I enjoy walking & hiking, yoga, qi gong, and baseball (go Rays and Yankee’s!!)

I have two wonderful sons living in the Rochester, New York area with their families;

Kevin and Becky and their daughter Rose Marie and pets Buck and Elsie

Jason and Maria and their children Khai and Marcy Mae, and family pets Wesley and Dakota
