Therapeutic Massage, Biodynamic Structual Integration

Massage has been my profession for 2 decades, and I've greatly enjoyed learning about the human body and helping many people feel better and move more freely. Ten years ago, I began studying Structural Integration, a myofascial therapy that helps release deeper patterns of tension and stuckness for reduced pain and greater freedom in movement and life.

Massage has been my profession for 2 decades, and I've greatly enjoyed learning about the human body and helping many people feel better and move more freely. Ten years ago, I began studying Structural Integration, a myofascial therapy that helps release deeper patterns of tension and stuckness for reduced pain and greater freedom in movement and life. Sessions involve slow, steady pressure, whether deep or light as needed and to the comfort of each client. Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a wonderful complement to this work, a gentle non-invasive approach that helps calm the nervous system and bring a state of deep relaxation and wholeness. I am certified in Pre-natal Massage, and love working with clients in all life stages.

This truly was amazing, thank you so much.

I recently injured my lower back. The combination of a myofascial treatment and the skill of Allison gave me a noticeable improvement. I'm very optimistic that I will be back to normal eventually.

Excellent by every measure!

Allison did an excellent job on my deep tissue massage. I would label myself as a very challenging customer when it comes to massage, and she was able to provide me with some relief from the terrible pain I was experiencing in my shoulder and neck.

This was my first time having biodynamic craniosacral therapy and it was a very nice and relaxing experience. Allison is a very good listener! She took the time to answer all my questions. I’ve already made my next appointment. .
