We (my classmates and I) traveled to Florida, one of the few existing Board Exams at the time, to gain licensure, and test our knowledge. It was our commitment to show the people of Georgia that we were serious about our trade, because Georgia had no licensing requirements until 2007.

After moving to Arkansas, I trained at Valley of Vapors to update my skills and fulfill additional hydro and electro therapy requirements of Arkansas. Although Arkansas only requires 500 hours, they do require these additional therapies for licensure.

I passed the MBLex (National Board Examination) and received my Arkansas license on September 22, 2009.

In the last six years, I have added courses of Direct/Indirect method, additional TMJD Techniques, Assessment, Targeted Muscle Testing, and Basic Lymphatic Massage to my areas of practice.

My Philosophy

I believe that I must listen to you. What do you want, and what do you need? When these things don't agree, I engage you in a conversation, and show you how the whole body should be in balance. On your first appointment, I will seek to involve you, only when necessary, in order to accelerate the effectiveness of the work. We are a team, and in the end - having you smile and float out the door is always my priority.


Why I do what I do

I was raised in a large family. They quickly learned that I had a talent to "find the right spots." So from a very young age, I began working on feet, hands, shoulders. It was not until college, when a classmate suggested I do this for a living, that I went to school.  I went to school to learn when NOT to massage.  

So why do I do it?  Because I want to help others improve their quality of life, and massage is an important part of any fitness or wellness program.

Come and see how massage can improve your quality of life!

Allyn always manages to find the muscles I've abused the most and then get them to relax. The very first time I went to her was a Friday evening after training deadlift. I walked out feeling like I skipped the gym that morning, and my squat numbers (weights and reps) went up remarkably after she worked on my left quad and ankle. After that, I called and set up a monthly appointment. I (half) jokingly call it a performance enhancement massage!

Allyn listens to the clients needs. She explains everything she is going to do. She also explains all of her COVID cleaning procedures.

Allyn is very knowledgeable and professional. She listened to me describe my issues before beginning the different areas of massage. I highly recommend her.

Allyn truly is amazing ! I went to her with multiple areas that needed attention & she addressed each one with her "magic hands", giving me suggestions & exercises to keep me from allowing them to return. So very knowledgeable of all things healthy :)
