I am a massage therapist practicing in the Rochester, NY area. My background is in public health & farming. In 2018 I attended Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage, completing the 1000 hour program in 6 months. Having experienced some of my own chronic pain, headaches, & fatigue, I became a massage therapist with a desire to help others and to reconnect with my own well-being. The hope and intention behind my work is to help you feel more aware of and grounded in your own body, and ultimately feeling more connected to your needs.

A working concept of some of my personal work is illustrated by the motif of a small rooted plant sprout. The seed leaves, or cotyledon, are the first small leaves to emerge from a newly germinated seed. They help to facilitate the growth of the new plant. Stretching towards the sun to receive energy & nutrients, the cotyledon help to further promote the growth of the plant and will fall away when the first true leaves emerge. I wish to help facilitate the growth of my clients and their own relationship with their bodies and their own lives. I believe that massage therapy can be powerful tool through which we can feel healthier and more connected with the wisdom of our bodies and our world.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

She checked in on me throughout the massage and asked if I was ok. She took time to sit with me before the massage to find out what I was looking for and what brought me in. It was a short chat but I trusted her right away and was able to relax and enjoy my massage.

She spent time understanding the problem. Worked on the target area really well. Looked for feedback. Checked all the boxes for a great customer service!!!

I had my first massage ever provided to me by Alana Bowen. She did an amazing job and my body feels way less tense along with feeling relaxed. There's so many good things to say about her honestly. I highly recommend booking with her! I'll absolutely be rebooking with Alana in the future. Everything from how she works the muscles and tissue to the soothing tone of her voice made the experience not only amazing but relaxing as well :)

First off, I begin to relax the moment Alana greets me. I require deep pressure, and she does not disappoint, or tire - I don’t know how she does it. She never rushes, but somehow gets an amazing amount of work done. She has a remarkable ability to match the right technique with my unique assortment of ailments. I am a repeat customer and recommend her highly.
