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


  • I have been going to Allison for several years - she is the best in all areas of massage.

    My massage was amazing! I felt very relaxed and ready to take a nap when my massage was over! I will definitely go back again!

  • Great 1st visit.

    The results had a lasting effect. I was able to move more freely for days. I would highly advise anyone with stiffness in their back and shoulders to go to Alison.

  • Alison does a wonderful massage and is a great lady

    it was amazing. looking forward to next appointment

  • This was my first massage and I loved everything about it! I would definitely go back to Alison. And have already recommend her to several of my friends and family members.

    I've been going to Alison for as long as she has been in business. Suffering with Fibro & CFS, I benefit from therapeutic massages. Just wished I could go more often.

  • Loved it.

I have carpal tunnel issues and have had a very bad flare up. Allison worked on this for me. The results have been great. Although not completely cleared, the symptoms have lessened considerably. I'm going back this week for another round.

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.

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.

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.
