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.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Allison is wonderful as always.

    Allison is wonderful as always.

  • The Thai concept was definitely a new "twist" on massage! The forty-five minute massage was relaxing and beneficial as well.

    I have had massage all over the World, and Alison is one of my favorite massage therapists. She is very kind, professional, and has a very skilled touch. She can find the spots needing care and knows how to address them. She's great!

    Sometimes you know you need a massage. But I liked the fact that Alison worked the back and lower back area slow and just deep enough to feel the soreness I did not realize were needing attention.

  • Loved it all! Wonderful massage!

    Friendly and professional. She knows just how hard to break up the knots without killing you.

  • Appointments not scheduled back to back, so you have time to discuss what you need done and dont have to jump off the table and get dressed because the next person is already there.

I knew my neck is a locked problem and Alison recognized the need to work this area very expertly and also new to incorporate other associated areas to relieve this tightness. I felt sore afterwards but my head movements have been getting a better range of motion. Alison told me to stretch and move. So I practice, practice, and can't wait for the next appointment.

Alison knows exactly the pressure to use and the muscles to work on. Leave feeling so much better.

Asked about any allergies or scent preferences. Spent the full hour on massage. Focused mainly on my problem areas. Asked about pressure as wr went so I felt comfortable to speak up.
