I can't think of a single thing I didn't like. My upper back had been the in pain for over a week. My chiropractor was able to lessen the pain but after my massage with Alison, I woke up pain-free in my upper back. I always wake up with a painful and stiff and lower back but after my session yesterday I woke up this morning feeling great with no pain or stiffness . Alison knows how to seek out the problem areas and fix them. Alison is amazing!

I so appreciate the time taken to work on trouble spots and educating me on this journey to wellness! I always feel great after a massage and enjoy pain free days for a while, depending on my activity level.

Allison is amazing! She takes time to get to know you and what exactly you are looking to get out of your massage. She keeps up with her training so you never get the "box" massage. My husband and I highly recommend Allison
