Please be aware that I do book out 2-4 weeks and advance the online calendar accordingly. I very rarely have same day appointments as I do have a cancellation waiting list and will fill in open spots from that list. Any openings that I may have will show up on my online scheduler. Thank you!

BS from OSU 2010, LMT from Medical Model Massage Institue at M.T. Wellness in Columbus Ohio 2012, CLT from the Acadomy of Lymphatic Studies 2014. CST 1 and 2 from Upledger Institute 2017. I am a Certified Member of ABMP and a Medallion Member of IAHP.

I have encountered a lot of people with chronic pain, from within my own family, myself, and strangers that have come in for a massage because nothing else has worked. I have seen what the power of touch can do for people in pain and I have felt the effects myself. This lead me to massage therapy as a career with the eventual goal of making it a more main stream and accepted form of alternative health care.

I'm originally from Ann Arbor, MI but came down to Columbus, OH in 2006 to attend The Ohio State University. After graduating, I discovered M.T. Wellness, a small chronic pain clinic, that was offering LMT classes in a medical model format. So I stayed in Columbus, earned a Diploma from M.T. Wellness, and earned two years of massage experience by working at a Chiropractic office and a local Spa. I have finally decided to use my knowledge to start a business of my own. I am constantly trying to grow my skills to better help my clients by taking continuing education classes. I added Manual Lymphatic Drainage in 2014 and Craniosacral Therapy in 2017. I'm looking forward to continuing to take classes through Upledger within the realm of Craniosacral to increase my knowledge in that area.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Veronica on May 12
I love that Alaina will focus my entire hour on the areas that need work! I don't usually need a "full body" massage. Target areas! Awesome!
by Sue on May 06
Alaina is great! Really takes her time and gets all the kinks and knots out. Very relaxing.
by Katie on May 06
Alaina is always on schedule and is very professional. Always a great massage!
by Mary on Apr 28
Alaina is a skilled massage therapist with the right balance of "not too hard" but "not too soft." I'm noticing increased mobility after just two massages, and her flexible weekend scheduling makes it possible to fit massage into my busy work schedule. Highly recommended.
by Kelly on Apr 27
Love Alainas new space! Excellent attention to physical issues needing care and care thereafter. I would recommend Alaina to anyone who trains hard and needs her expertise to attain the healthy muscular balance.
by Lin on Apr 25
Alaina is one of the best massage therapist I've ever seen. I've been seeing her since my car accident last May. She has the knowledge and skills to help people. I recommend her frequently (weekly ) to someone.
