Eli is a great massage therapist.  She provided a custom massage for my individual needs.  Massage combined aroma therapy, which made it a very relaxing and peaceful experience.  I would recommend to a friend.( Taylor Z.)

Eli is very skilled and also very loving.  She has a profound connection with the divine and has cultivated her art for many years.  Her massage and energy work is quite unique.   Her work opens up many levels and layers of your being.  Words themselves do not do well enough to describe her sessions.  I highly recommend her services as one of Chicago's top body/energy workers.  She is a hidden gem of the North Shore.(Kevin W.)

Awesome, very relaxed place. Eli is very spiritual person and very good massage therapist. This is not my first time going there. Strongly recommended (Slava Z.)

I had the privilege of knowing Eli as massage therapist for the past 3 years. Quite literally, the massages Eli gives are best massage I have ever had in my life.  And I have had more than a few that I thought were great. You can tell that she knows when to apply softness to her touch, keeping a nice even pressure and not missing an area that needed attention.  But she also knew when to dig in to the areas in my back that were really knotted up.   I submit the highest recommendation for massage services at Lotus Rays Alignment. The ambiance of a place is very inviting, peaceful and I love the decor.(Tatiana K. Roselle IL)

Eli is the best - I highly recommend! I spent almost 2 hours with her last night after getting the 80 minute healing massage. In addition to a great, incredibly relaxing massage, Eli provided breathing and stretching techniques that has helped tremendously with my shoulder and back pain. I can't wait to go back - already reserved a weekly time slot.(Matthew  C.   North Chicago IL)

I was looking for a place for a massage in Northbrook and I found Lotus Rays Alignment.  I made an appointment and I was very glad I did.  Eli, the massage therapist was wonderful.  She used swedish and deep tissue techniques as well as aroma therapy and not only did she eliminate my aches and stress, but I left invigorated and revitalized like I have never been before after a massage.  Eli talked with me afterwards and shared some of her personal philosophy with me and it was a really great experience.  The best massage I ever had.(Lawrence J.Northbrook IL)

Eli was absolutely incredible.  I don't even live in the area and was simply visiting my parents when they recommended I check it out for an injury that I had.  I was blown away at the service and, it was a steal.  One of the best massages I've ever had.(Alex S. Los Angeles CA)

I have been a regular massage client of various practitioners for seventeen years.  I can say that Eli is one of the best therapists I have ever had.  She was able to get out a knot in my neck that regularly plagues me with pain.  It has not returned in the intervening month.  Her website accurately describes her technique and what you can expect.  I left her studio not only feeling greatly relaxed, but also with new insights into questions that I had been worried about for a long time.  I felt true peace when I left her studio and that too has endured.  I highly recommend her work.(Karen H. Chicago IL)

After each massage, I feel wonderful. My mood is automatically raised, I feel more at ease and balanced with my life. It is a pleasurable part of my routine and a highlight of my week I look forward to everyday. My low back pain has subsided because of my weekly massage. Daniel L.

Ellie is an unique massage therapist- she gives you a part of herself, you feel as if a part of her inner energy moves into you and heels you.I worked with a lot of massage therapists and usually ,even with the best ones,it's just physical contact. But if you want something more spiritual, you can get it from Ellie, but you must be ready for that and concentrate on your massage. Good Luck, Eli. Rachel

I used to have many problems with my low back pain, but these massages have greatly reduced my pain and brought me relaxation and harmony in my life.These massages given me inner strength, peace and courage. Thank you! Marina L.

I had many massage therapy sessions with Eligija and my experience was great every time! I received relaxation, comfort and also healing, both physical and spiritual. You walk in expecting a massage session and you leave feeling like your day had just started, energized in a peaceful and spiritually nurtured way. She provides an environment where you feel at home, you feel like you belong there and you are in good hands. You go in to meet with your innerself while your body is relieved from tension and stress. I received from Eli thorough care, healing, comfort and relaxation. What's amazing about Eli is that she gives you all her energy and passion, all her dedicated attention and care, all the time! After each therapy session with Eli I felt like I received more than I could have asked for! I give all my gratitude and appreciation to Eli for the many times she enabled me to escape from the distractions of every day life, unwind and invigorate my body and my soul. I recommended Eli to my friends and family and I will continue to do so! Michelle, Des Plaines, IL

In my busy schedule, I try to come for a massage as often as possible. The feeling during and after these unique experiences leaves me feeling rejuvenated and ready to continue throughout the day. I feel connected throughout my body and mind, and am able to focus more clearly. Thank you for everything! Levsky

Eli it’s my honor to experience your presence and care. I’m grateful for the dedicated service you bring to each one of your clients. As a client, I have had the opportunity to grow spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically. This is due in part to your diligence, dedication, and insight. I’m grateful for the appropriate times when you assist and find it necessary and needed to help guide me on my journey. I’m grateful for your meridian alignment and deep tissue sessions. I’m grateful that the universe gave you such gifts to assist humanity in need. I have come to realize we are all teachers; it is the student who must decipher the teaching and recognized the teacher. Thank You! K. Mitchum

I enjoy massage therapy and before meeting Eligija have worked with several very good professionals. After hearing numerous great reviews of Eligija’s work, I decided to schedule a therapy session with her, and certainly expected a high quality, professional massage from someone who knows what she’s doing. Despite the high expectations, as soon as I entered Eligija’s room, I knew I was dealing with something special. Even though it’s hard to describe in words, I felt peace and calmness even before Eligija started her session. Right after my first therapy, I realized what that very special feeling I experienced with Eligija was. I didn’t realize, that in addition to the corrective therapy for your back (and other parts of the body), massage can be also a spiritual experience. I’ve always had the mindset that if I didn’t see something, I couldn’t believe it, so it took me some time to realize that the way we feel physically often depends on our emotional and spiritual health. Now I see that sometimes it’s even hard to say what comes first. If we don’t have balance between these three components, we may feel physically sick, or experience all kind of psychosomatic pains. I can now say for sure, that Eligija’s therapy can help to bring back this important balance. It did for me. Each time I leave Eligija’s office, I feel happier, calmer and very peaceful. In other words, Eligija’s therapy helps me feel better spiritually, emotionally and physically. I find Eligija a unique specialist, who, in addition to our physical selves, can heal spiritual and emotional selves as well. She can really “hear you,” and she always knows your condition and what’s best for you today. Even though I’ve been going to Eligija for over two years, I can say that I didn’t have two identical therapies with her – each gave me what I needed at that moment. When I told her that, she wasn’t surprised as our conditions are always different, thus the treatment should be different as well. I feel very lucky that after being exposed to many wonderful specialists, I’ve finally met a very unique and spiritual professional massage therapist - Eligija.Love, Lena

I wish I could give this review 10 stars vs. 5. Eli is beyond wonderful! Her massages are based on what you need vs. other therapists that just go through the same routine every time. She listens to your concerns and concentrates on areas that need attention until she's satisfied. Spending time with her is so much more than getting a massage. She really cares and makes an effort to understand you as a person, not just a client. I feel so refreshed physically and spiritually when I leave. There are just not enough words to describe this wonderful lady! She is truly a gift!

I cannot even begin to describe my experience at Lotus Rays.From the moment I walked in, the atmosphere, energy and warm welcome helped me feel relaxed and at peace. With her magic hands, beautiful mantras and deep sense of spiritual energy Ellie really helped my aches and pains dissipate. It was in short an out of body experience that not only helped heal my body, but mind and soul. I think I have found my new zen and place of healing in all aspects!

Eli and her amazingly skillful hands deliver a wonderful treatment for one’s body. Her intuitive, pure heart provides relief for one’s mind and soul. She's a healer with an insightful sense of what needs to be done during a massage session. On top of it, she's just the kindest, sweetest soul I felt comfortable with the moment I met her. I fully trust her knowledge and skills. I can't thank Eli enough for her care throughout the years!

I have known Eli and have been getting massages from her for a long time. Eli has a technique that is unique. A mixture of swedish and deep tissue massage styles along with salt back scrubs and cupping-oh and sometimes a perfect tone from her musical bowls. I just tell Eli about any specific problem areas and she- being able to read my body better than I can- just starts her magic and i get to enjoy the fruits of her labor. Eli massages your mind as well as your body. Perfection!

Had a great experience at Lotus Rays Alignment. Loved the ambience and appreciated the cleanliness. Elli gave me a deep massage and I felt from the beginning that she was a dedicated and caring massage therapist. Her skills and knowledge were impressive and we were able connect instantly because we both find great meaning in Buddhist teachings. The services include heat lamps and warm towels and cupping and perhaps more and my sense is that each person receives a personalized massage.

Elle has an incredible sense of where your body needs help and activates the muscles in that area through her massaging and cup work! I have used many masseurs in the past — only once before have I encountered this sense that Elle possesses. Do yourself a favor and try Elle — your whole body and Spirit will thank you!

I want to thank you, Eli, for a very comprehensive and healing massage. Her approach is with white a glove but having all the factors in consideration for each customer. My wife & I have been using her professional services. Just for relaxation, therapeutic or other reasons, this is the place you must go. All ages and conditions. Thank you, Eli.

Eli is the most conscious and talented massage therapist I have ever met. She can place her hands over me and know what hurts before I tell her. My family and friends all agree! She is a treasure.

This was my first, and not my last, experience here. It was awesome and not at all rushed. A gem in the north 'burbs.

I've been going to Eli for over 7 years and each time is such a great experience. Stress is taken away and healing begins the minute I walk in the door. Do yourself a favor and book today. You will not regret it, promise!
