When considering what to bring to a desert island, one might consider a snowmobile, a milk steamer, and one of Elite Massage Therapy's therapists. The outfit's two locations dispense different methods of relief—from his station downtown, Jacob Kilbride specializes in sports-performance massage, supplemented by the rehabilitative Kinesio Taping Method and a Chinese scar-tissue mediation technique called gua sha. His journey began at Spencerian School of Massage, where he mastered anatomy and the fundamental techniques of Swedish, deep-tissue, and other modalities.

Instead, he customizes his strokes in accordance with the needs of each individual, tailoring pressures to tolerance while intuitively seeking out tension and knots. Believing that massages are a legitimate form of health care, Jean-Yves aims to correct a range of ailments, from a stiff lower back and headaches to lower energy levels.
