If your pain greatly affects your quality of life or disrupts your daily activities then you have come to the right place.  I help people break free from the cycle of chronic neck and back pain.

WELCOME to your place for pain relief. San Luis Chronic Pain Therapies strives to kick your pain to the curb and get back feeling good! 

We are COVID19 compliant and follow disinfecting protocols. Masks required.




For info on cupping click "Cupping 101" on the Menu Bar.



This session targets your neck, shoulders and upper back.  If time allows or you choose it, some attention is given to your other muscle groups leaving you feeling balanced and relaxed.



Extra attention is given to the intricate muscles of your neck and more time on your upper, mid and low back.  A healthy dose of time is spent soothing your other muscle groups and scalp, hands and feet.



This session allows ample time to work out knots in your neck and upper back, and get rid of that headache, if you have one.  More time means more time melting and soothing those pesky knots. The other muscle groups also get a lot of attention here-from head to toe!

Every session includes a variety of modalities that promote relaxation and reduce pain. Modalities utilized are:

  • Swedish massage

  • Deep tissue massage

  • Trigger point work

  • Electric Point Stimulator

  • Cupping therapy

  • Stretching

  • Gua-Sha.

Leisure Time

When I'm not working you can find me hiking in the Irish Hills, listening to "How I Built This" with Guy Raz on NPR, reading Massage and Bodywork magazine, or learning to do a backbend & handstand.

Feel free to reach out to me, I look forward to meeting you soon!



"The results were incredible.  Cupping helped to relieve the pressure in my joints.  Immediately after my session I experienced relief.  I was blown away by how quickly I felt the results.  Eva is an excellent bodyworker.  She really listens."

Amanda, local music teacher

"I have suffered from recurring neck, shoulders and back pain for many years.  Eva showed a sincere desire to properly treat my issues.  She performed massage and cupping.  Honestly, I felt a significant degree of relief that same day."

Mariela, local resident and volunteer

"Seriously, thank you for yesterday because it really helped unlock a lot of muscles and you did an excellent job hitting some key trigger points. It was worth every penny and some! Thank you so much for the work you did yesterday!"
