Super friendly and very good masseuse.
by arianne on Mar 22
Alison is fantastic!! She really understands the body and cares about giving the client a great experience. I told her my "problem areas", but I'm so glad that I told her to do what she thought was best for my body, because it turns out I have other problem areas I didn't even know about! I felt SO much better when I left, and that was just one session! She's also super easy going and a joy to chat with. You won't be disappointed if you work with Alison!
by Tali on Mar 19
Alison pays attention to my needs. She takes care of the tight spots. She is very attentive and always asks for feed back. She pays attention to me and always does it a little differnet concentration on the body parts that need most attention.
by Pat on Mar 06
Thank you Alison for the fantastic massage. Your work on my TMJ was much needed.
by Christine on Feb 27
This appointment was my first experience with professional massage and I was not disappointed. Ali is friendly and knowledgeable, and she made sure that I was informed and comfortable. I didn't know what to expect or what to ask for so she helped me with everything, from selecting an oil fragrance that I would like, to helping me determine which areas and muscles were most in need of her attention. I received a full body massage and left feeling fantastic! I would recommend Alison's services to anyone.
by Elizabeth on Feb 27
Alison was wonderful. She was personable, professional and provided an excellent massage. I plan to schedule again in the future.
by Anonymous on Feb 17
Alison is amazing!!! My body is thanking her forever for her skill and calming demeanor. She communicated with me throughout the massage and I just still feel so great and relaxed, I would recommend this place as well as her personally a hundred times over!
by Anonymous on Feb 15
She went above and beyond by adding stretches throughout the massage. She also checked in with me throughout the massage to ensure the pressure was correct and I was comfortable.
by Ryan on Feb 13
Very friendly and professional, but in a way that I could connect with Allison and not feel like things were "all business ". Happy that she listened to what my problem areas were and made sure to focus on them.
by Stephanie on Feb 06
I am current 23 weeks pregnant and came to see Alison for my first prenatal massage. She was very professional and explained the difference between traditional and prenatal massaged. The massage table was heated and the body pillows were very comfortable. There was a nice mixture between conversation and relaxation. I will definitely come back later on in my pregnancy for another massage
