About Us

I began my journey with Massage and Bodywork in 1992 after an automobile accident.  I studied at TMTI in Charlotte, NC and completed my training at Southeastern School of Neuromuscular and Massage Therapy also in Charlotte, NC, obtaining my North Carolina state license in 1995. 

I have training in Swedish, deep tissue, Neuromuscular, hand and foot reflexology, pregnancy, myofascial release, and myoskeletal alignment techniques.  I also offer facial massages, hot stone massage, and clinical aromatherapy.

I also carry a certification as a yoga instructor, so I am able to help you with flexibility and balance with one on one instruction.  I also teach a couple of classes a week,  I would love for you to join in.  Yoga is such a lovely practice.

I've been a fan of massage therapy for many years; however, I haven't had a massage that compared to the massaged provided by my therapist in the late '90s until I received a massage from Alison Robinette in Dec. 2017. Even days later, I can feel the effects of the deep massage WITHOUT feeling like I am bruised. She really knows what she is doing to offer therapeutic effects and not just relaxation techniques. I highly recommend anyone contact her who works on computers for a living because she can work the knots out of shoulder and neck pain from intensive desk work.
