Let me make self-care easy

Life can be filled with too many decisions and deadlines. Picking the type of massage from a list of too many options can be overwhelming (what is myofascial release anyway, you might ask?). 

Allow me to simplify this process by providing you with a unique blend of modalities custom designed to meet your specific needs and preferences.  With over 20 years of experience as a licensed massage therapist (LMT), and a graduate of the Baltimore School of Massage, I have studied a multitude of Bodywork techniques and specialize in orthopedic style massage therapy.  In our session we will discuss your treatment goals and come up with a plan to help bring you the lasting calm, rejuvenation and pain relief you are seeking.

I will encourage you to communicate about what pressure feels just right, so that the massage not only feels great to you but also delivers optimal results.  You will be charged only for time I spend hands on with you, regardless of the forms of treatment and type of massage being used.

As you begin your journey to self-care, you can trust your health and well-being to Body Restoration Massage Therapy.

Body Restoration is owned and operated by Alison "Ali" Cox. Offices are conveniently located in Crownsville and Laurel, MD. The Crownsville site is located in the beautiful office of East-West Healing Arts.

Body Restoration, Inc. - Business Owner

I graduated from the Baltimore School of Massage in 1999, and passed the National Certification exam shortly thereafter (NCTMB), becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) ready to share my passion for bodywork and wellness with others. Prior to being trained in massage therapy, I was a busy corporate Account Executive who sought out the soothing effects of massage therapy to help me deal with long hours and stressful deadlines. The effects of treatment were so profound for me that I was determined to share this work with others. I enrolled at the Baltimore School of massage and never looked back. My basic training at the Baltimore School of Massage consisted of education in Swedish, Deep Tissue and Myofascial Release. Over the years I have studied Acupressure, Reflexology, Sports massage, Active Isolated Stretching, Facilitated Stretching, Trigger Point Therapy, Medical Massage, Orthopedic Massage, Massage for Chronic Pain Conditions, Massage for the Breast Cancer Patient, Ortho-Bionomy, Cranial-Sacral Therapy, and Reiki. Additionally I have had training in classes specific to conditions of the neck, back, shoulder girdle, upper and lower extremities and hips. My philosophy about massage therapy and my treatment protocol is this: I treat the individual. We will discuss your needs, likes, dislikes and will devise a course of treatment uniquely suited for you. I encourage communication about what pressure feels right to you so we can get you the optimal results in our session. I charge only for the time I spend hands on with you, regardless of the forms of treatment and massage being used. I invite you to come in to explore how I can help you get in touch with your mind and body, and allow me to help you facilitate restoring your health and well-being.
