Vibrant, sassy and dedicated, Autumn Elias is a thriving entrepreneur and founder of Vita Wellness Massage.
FOUNDER AUTUMN ELIAS, received her massage license in 2003 from Lauterstein-Conway Massage School. Massage quickly became 'her medicine,' revolutionizing her relationship to her body and dramatically shifting how she 'showed up' in the world. Her own personal growth and healing experiences were further ignited when she found Lomi Lomi Massage and Deep Massage. As she began to integrate these philosophies and teachings into her life, she became inspired to expand her private practice. In hindsight, Autumn reflects, laughing,"If I had known how much personal growth I would go through as a massage therapist and then as an entrepreneur, I never would have ventured into these worlds". In 2011, Vita Wellness Massage was born.
A SURPRISING OPPORTUNITY Having navigated the wellness world alone for many years before she found a business coach, Autumn grew her private-practice haphazardly through much frustrating trial and error. She realized this was a common, and unnecessary experience for many massage therapists. This business coaching accelerated the growth of her practice. Out of a desire to help other massage therapists create a sustainable and heart-centered practice, Autumn developed a unique massage-mentorship program that coaches therapists on how to elevate their game and win the hearts of all their clients. "Together, we can amplify our impact and change the world one massage at a time!" Learn more about this opportunity here.
WHAT MAKES AUTUMN TICK? She is committed to living passionately and inspiring others to feel the connection and joy in their life. She is passionate about traveling, salsa dancing, gardening and sharing laughs with friends and family, all of which continue to bring joy and love into her life. Her mission and vision for Vita Wellness is an extension of her personal vibrancy and dedication to living life to the fullest.
