Alissa’s 3 main focuses are Craniosacral Therapy, Acupressure and Thai Yoga Therapy. Twenty years ago, Alissa met her decade-long mentor, Minga Lily, who, through Thai Yoga Therapy and health coaching, helped Alissa experience healing from chronic intestinal illness. This inspired Alissa to study Thai Yoga Therapy with Minga and travel to Chiang Mai, Thailand to complete her training and certification. Alissa recognized that the meridian work in Thai Yoga Therapy was very powerful and, in an effort to understand more about the meridian system, she studied acupressure, Traditional Chinese Medicine theory and Chinese medical massage (called TuiNa) at East-West Healing Arts Institute. At East-West, Alissa also took an introductory course in Craniosacral Therapy and experienced her own healing jump to a new level, so she decided to pursue adding Craniosacral Therapy to her skillset. She has completed 4 courses in Craniosacral Therapy and has had great fun witnessing her clients experience dramatic shifts and deep healing from within through a combination of these 3 complementary modalities.

Alissa is passionate about providing a healing experience through listening, a compassionate touch and skilled therapeutic massage. She is dedicated to helping people live healthier, happier lives.

In her private life Alissa enjoys West-African drumming, yoga, mountain biking, rock climbing, skiing and being in nature with her husband and identical twin daughters.

The room and ambiance are noisy because of building location, otherwise nice

Alissa knows cranial sacral therapy and how best to help each patient. She has many other skills. She is also trained in intra-cranial work which I have found to be rare. She listened to me in order to figure out hot to best help me.
