Eliza Mallouk, LMT

Eliza Mallouk has been a massage therapist and movement educator for over 35 years. She is also a founding member of Cambridge Health Associates (1988). 

Originally a ceramic artist, Eliza's first job after college was the “Pain Clinic” at Massachusetts Rehabilitation Hospital teaching art to people suffering from chronic back pain. This experience inspired her to become a massage therapist. She graduated from the Muscular Therapy Institute in 1978 and taught on its faculty from 1979-1999. Eliza was on the faculty of The American Dance Festival (1979-1981) where she taught massage therapy and the Alexander Technique to dancers. She is a certified teacher of the Alexander Technique since 1981 and a certified Zero Balancer since 2001. Over the years, she has expanded her knowledge of healing by studying many different modalities including: Craniosacral Therapy, Reiki, Self-Regulation Therapy, the Stough Method of Breathing Coordination,  Activated Isolated Stretching and “The Actor’s Secret.”

Eliza discovered her passion for dance in 2005 and trains regularly in modern, ballet, hip hop and improvisational movement. She is a member of the local modern dance company "The Elders Ensemble of Prometheus Dance,” and co-founder in 2010 and producer of "Across the Ages Dance Project," which hosts a yearly show featuring an intergenerational ensemble of dancers.

Eliza is an instructor in the Alexander Technique Teacher Training program at Boston Conservatory/Berklee since 2016.

Treatment Philosophy

"Each person is unique - growing learning, and healing in their own unique way. Over the years, I have learned to trust in each person's capacity for change when given the appropriate interventions. I see myself as a teacher and a guide, using touch, words and other skills to lead each person towards increased health, awareness and physical and emotional ease."


"I was feeling hopeless and increasingly limited - I'd been in pain for a long time. Eliza calmed me down. She showed me that there were many choices I could make and helped me to see that while my body might take a while to heal, I COULD heal and I could learn a lot in the process." - Ann P.

"I didn't know I could feel so good after only two sessions. It’s a relief to establish a relationship to my body that isn’t focused on pain."  - Allison J.

“It’s hard to find hands as strong and gentle as Eliza’s. I’m lucky to have found her.” - J. H.

"I learned about posture, about how to use my body with ease, which helped eliminate my pain, reduced my stress, and freed up energy so that I could enjoy more."  - Andrew S.
