Elena Banu, LMT, founded her practice with the focus on helping those with acute or chronic medical conditions/illnesses and the modalities that are shown to benefit these types of symptoms the most.
"I am truly passionate about what I do and therefore do not consider it work, it is part of who I am. I continue to further my education so that my clients will always be confident in receiving therapy from me and so that I am able to help as many as possible."

Born in New Jersey and raised in a small Illinois town I was always into athletics. Through sports I became fascinated by the body’s many functions and the mechanics behind them. This motivated me to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science/Kinesiology at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. While in college I participated as a personal trainer and was the head coordinator of a exercise and nutrition program that greatly helped cancer victims as well as their caregivers.
Upon graduating I moved to Fort Myers where I was a physical therapy tech for nearly three years. In this function I gained invaluable experience as I trained with and worked along side some great physical and massage therapists. As my knowledge of treating and preventing injuries grew I came to realized that I could effectively apply that knowledge to massage therapy. This led me to Bonita Springs School of Massage Therapy where it’s rigorous and effective training has allowed me to recognize my life long desire to help people heal, prevent injuries, and simply feel great. My goal is to help each person I encounter create a better quality of life through massage therapy.
