Autumn Elias is a thriving entrepreneur in Austin and has been described as vibrant, sassy and dedicated.
FOUNDER AUTUMN ELIAS, received her massage license in 2003 from Lauterstein-Conway Massage School here in Austin, TX. Through her own personal growth and healing experiences with Lomi Lomi Massage and Deep Massage, she quickly integrated these philosophies and teachings into her private and professional life. She practiced part-time while intermittently traveling the world, salsa dancing, soul-searching, and learning to garden before she finally moved into a full massage practice in 2007. That private practice eventually became this, Vita Wellness Massage.
In 2012, Autumn was a finalist in the BIG Austin Business Plan Competition. This inspired her to expand the business to include a mobile massage division- chair-massage- to bring wellness programming to the corporate world as well as Austin's bustling bridal community. In 2016, Autumn was the recipient of the Woman's Way Awards in the Health and Wellness category, the most prestigious awards for women in business. Committed to sharing her professional knowledge with other aspiring massage therapists, Autumn pivoted the business to include a unique Massage Mentorship Program as well. In 2016 and 2017, she was a finalist in the Sports, Wellness & Fitness category for the prestigious Austin Under 40 awards for business achievements and community involvement.
