Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • This was such thoughtful, careful and well-informed work. As a bodyworker myself, I truly appreciate Alex's sensitivity and effectiveness. My body feels great!

    I am truly astonished. After the first session yesterday, I felt a sort of looseness, tenderness and relaxation in my hip that I haven't felt since my chronic hip pain started three years ago. And last night was the first night since then that I was able to lie on my back and not feel the dull pain come on. I have had chronic pain in my hip for three years, and have been to three different doctors (two DO's and an orthopedic surgeon. This is the first intervention that has made a significant change. Besides that, Dr. Brown seems to have real knowledge of physiology and anatomy that my other practitioners either didn't or were not interested in explaining.

  • Alex is amazing!

    It was nice and Alex made me understand my body and helped me with my problems.

  • Alex is amazing! I am recovering from a very badly broken rib, and after one massage my pain levels are down 80-90%! I absolutely cannot recommend Alex enough!

    Alex is amazing at helping me troubleshoot problems and address imbalances. She has helped me reduce pain on multiple occasions, and I always leave with helpful homework. I've been seeing her for my ankles and hips for years and I can't recommend her enough.

  • This was my second session with Alex - I came to her with severe nerve pain in my shoulder from poor mouse use and a non-ergo work desk. After the first session, my pain actually got worse, so I was skeptical. But I also realize these things take time and Alex seemed to really know what she was doing. So I returned for another round. My second session was intense, a bit painful and not as relaxing as the first massage therapy session. BUT my nerve pain is pretty much gone!!! My shoulder feels so much better. My back and neck pain is better, too. She also gives really great, detailed recommendations beyond her sessions right after the session ends. She's so good at what she does, and I'm excited to keep working with her. It's a true gift. I'm amazed by your work and so grateful for it, Alex. You've given me faith that I can heal all this pain I've had for years from scoliosis and my neck injury. Never knew what 2 sessions of massage therapy could accomplish. What a huge relief for my shoulder. I was so worried. Thank you so much.

    A consummate professional, Alex is also just really good at this. You won't be disappointed.

  • Great experience! Very relaxing, and comfortable environment - and very knowledgeable information provided to me. Thank you

    Alex is very professional and informative. She is excellent at giving great aftercare advice and explaining what the is causing the issues. Alex has been extremely helpful in diagnosing and remedying issues with my shoulder.

Alex is very knowledgeable about anatomy and sports medicine. We had a very focused session where she was able to identify my problem areas by both listening to what I had to stay as well as through very practiced palpitations. I would highly recommend her for pain treatment.

Alex is wonderful at what she does. I am a competitive marathoner and Alex has kept me running strong for the past three years. She has a very intuitive touch and often finds tight spots that I didn't realize were affecting my gait. I walk out of there feeling better every single time.
