About Eleanor (Ellie) Dukes
Let’s walk together on this path of living fully.
I’m looking forward to spending some time chatting with you about you. I love people. I love to learn about personalities and cultural backgrounds. I want to learn what you do for a living, your day to day activities, and how all of that affects your life. I want a meeting with your epigenetics. I’m fascinated by the fact that who we are is not only because of the genes our parents gave us but also because of the environment in which our grandparents lived. I want to learn more about you so I can assist you in your well-being journey.

Areas of Expertise
My love for high-level customer service and problem-solving stemmed from my time working at a Fortune 500 company in the Hotel & Hospitality Industry. Due to a growing family and my need for flexibility, I made the transition to a career in massage therapy in 2007.
I’ve worked on and in my private practice Trinity Massage Haven LLC as a sole proprietress since shortly after my graduation from massage therapy school. Before being self-employed I worked at three spas and three chiropractors’ offices. My focus is pain management, with an emphasis on prenatal massage and humans affected by cancer. My toolbox consists of a variety of modalities and fun gadgets.
I had the honor of working at Abramson Cancer Center in Philadelphia for one full year in 2015 as a Research Assistant. I was one of 3 amazing Oncology Massage Therapists who offered massages to women and men affected by breast cancer while receiving their chemotherapy treatment. The research was published, and yes, massage made a huge difference in mood and aided in pain management. Check it out here.
Presently I’m a member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA), Associated Bodywork and Massage Professinals (ABMP), Society for Oncology Massage (S4OM), and Professional Association for Black Bodyworkers (PABW).
