For many, getting a professional massage means having the opportunity to completely relax in a soothing and meditative environment; but beyond relaxing there are several other benefits of massage that can help contribute to your overall health and wellness - both mentally and physically.
Helps Relieve Anxiety and Depression
Promotes Healthy Sleep
Controls Blood Pressure
Achieve Fitness Goals
I incorporate energy healing, trigger point, and acupressure into every massage that I do, by listening to the body and by listening to the energy flow, in which we all carry. I create a unique and personal experience for each individual session, intentionally creating a massage that will suit your specific needs.
Energy healing gently clears energetic blockages to help release emotional and physical pain. Energy work involves moving above and beyond the physical to understand the aspects of the human energy field, helping to create and bring holistic balance. Energy healing is something I incorporate throughout every massage, as I listen to the body, helping to release any blockages.
Trigger point focuses on areas of tight muscle fibers that can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse. Trigger point is a modality that I use throughout every massage, as I focus to release the tension and stress we all seem to carry, throughout our everyday life.
Acupressure is an alternative medicine technique similar in principle to acupuncture. It is based on the concept of life energy, which flows through meridians in the body. In treatment, physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians.
This is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and energize you.
This massage technique uses slower, more forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, commonly to help with muscle damage from injuries.
Prenatal massage is similar to Swedish massage – it aims to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and mobility, and just make you feel good. But prenatal massage is also customized to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies.
Incorporating chair massage therapy into your office, onset, at your next taping, or at your next party, isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. From regularly-scheduled visits to your workplace, to single corporate events, tradeshows, client appreciation dinners, onset, backstage, helping writers and crew, musicians, at your next party or event, having a bridal shower, or maybe just a spa day at home. I serve up chair massage and table massage however you like it and in whatever form works best for you!

I. What is energy healing and how do you incorporate it into your massages?
Energy healing gently clears energetic blockages to help release emotional and physical pain. Energy work involves moving above and beyond the physical to understand the aspects of the human energy field, helping to create and bring holistic balance. I incorporate energy healing into every massage by listening to the body and by listening to the energy flow, in which we all carry. Every BODY is different and every path that we cross carries a different energy flow. We as humans have the tendency to pickup and carry on energy that does not belong. I find that incorporating energy work throughout my massage, helps to allow every client that I work with to leave my massage table and my massage chair feeling as though a shift has been made, releasing all that is negative and allowing positive energy to take place, allowing the client to leave open and grounded. As quoted from Aristotle - A change in the shape of the body creates a change in the state of the soul.
II. Is energy healing safe?
Energy healing is a natural and safe method of spiritual healing.
III. Are there any benefits to regular massage?
Studies on the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain, and muscle tension.
IV. Is massage supposed to be painful?
Actually, the idea of “no pain, no gain” does not really apply to massage. Deep tissue massage can hurt, but a well-trained therapist will always work within the comfort lines of their client.
V. Can I still receive a massage if I am pregnant?
When pregnant and receiving a massage it is best that the client be at least 12 weeks (just out of the first trimester). Massage is okay, as well as beneficial during pregnancy. It can help to increase circulation and it can help to improve digestion. It promotes relaxation, it helps reduce swelling, and it can alleviate the stress of weight-bearing joints, like the knees, which are impacted by the extra weight of a growing baby.
VI. What do I do to prepare for a massage? What do I do after?
To ensure your massage is as soothing as possible, get yourself into a relaxed state before you arrive. Make sure you drink some water, before and after. Play calming music on your ride or walk over. Also, know what needs work. Based on your job, you're more likely to have knots in certain places. Don't be afraid to let your therapist know that you do something that often causes your knots. You'll want to relax after your massage, so if at all possible, try to book it at a time when you know you'll have a period afterwards to relax. Drinking a bottle of water after your massage will very much help to prevent you from getting dehydrated and make sure you have a snack. Even though you were just lying on a table doing nothing, your digestive system was still at work during your massage, chances are that you'll be hungry, and you'll want to keep your blood sugar even. So again, make sure you give yourself time to relax after the massage. If you don't have anything to do for a while afterwards, simply leave on the lotion, drink lots of water, and relax. However, if you need to do something, it's a good idea to wash off the lotion - you may feel like a freshly-greased chicken with it on, plus there's a slight possibility the lotion can get on your clothes. Following the massage just keep in mind and be prepared for some soreness, especially if this is your first time receiving a massage. Whether it's directly after your massage, a few hours later, or the next day, there is a possibility that you'll be feeling sore soon, especially if you had a deep tissue massage. This is perfectly normal, and it's caused by lactic acid flooding your system during the massage, which is why I strongly encourage you to drink a lot of water to flush it out of your body and take a moment for yourself to collect your thoughts, by taking a few deep breaths, before stepping back into reality.
VII. How does massage benefit my overall health and wellness?
Regular massage helps with pain management. Many Studies have shown regular massages support immune system function and decreased stress-related hormones that can lower immunity. Regular massages are an effective stress-management technique. A weekly or bi-weekly massage forces you to take time out for yourself for a pleasurable, relaxing activity. Massage is soothing, nurturing, relaxing, and it can improve your state of mind.
Alexandria was essential in my recovery from 2 car accidents a few years ago. Her hands were magical and knew exactly where to go on my body. Now, she is still part of the maintenance of keeping my body at peak performance. I am ever so grateful to her talents.

Alexandria is a very talented therapist. She has a gift that cannot be taught in a class room. The way she listens and responds to the body through her energy work is incredible. I was never able to relax during a massage until seeing her. She was able to not only relax my body, but my spirit and mental space as well. I highly recommend having her as your regular massage therapist.

Alex came to my home to massage me because I had a migraine for 7 days straight. She turned relaxing music on and she made me feel very comfortable. She gave me the back massage of my life! My headache went away after I stood up and I felt 20 pounds lighter. She was professional, sweet, and she is very good at what she does! Thank you Alex!
