Alison Bode is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 200) and Certified Massage Therapist specializing in Orthopedic and Oncology Massage. In 2011, She received her B.A in Philosophy from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. After graduation, Alison went on to study massage at California Holistic Institute, Esalen Institute and The Academy of Clinical Massage.  In 2016, Alison completed her yoga teacher training at Kripalu School of Yoga and Ayurveda.  Alison uses a simple approach to both yoga and massage.

In her massage practice, she sees clients for both general relaxation massage and clinical massage to provide relief from specific pain. In both cases, her practice aims to provide the best therapeutic experience for her clients. She listens carefully to each individual's concerns, assesses their specific needs and then tailors each session for optimum results, relying on both careful observation and an in depth understanding of anatomy.  At the end of each session, she takes time to present a summary of what she noticed in the session and teaches simple stretches and provides a recommendation for future sessions.  Most often, she combines Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Lomi Lomi, Orthopedic and Myofascial Release techniques to create an individualized therapeutic experience.

Always learning more, Alison is currently working towards a masters degree in Occupational Therapy.

Alison is a member of the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals, California Massage Therapy Council, Yoga Alliance and Kripalu Yoga and Ayurveda Association.

I always receive an amazing massage, whether I need a relaxing or more of a therapeutic one. Allison is very professional and the ambiance is very calming and relaxing. She is very knowledgeable about all the muscles in the body and works on whatever is causing issues. Would not hesitate to refer anyone to her!
