Oregon Licensed Massage Therapist #21493
Alissa is a student of movement. As a runner, swimmer, dancer and explorer of nature, Alissa has always been on the move. Her journey into natural health and healing began at a young age when she began practicing yoga as a way to balance the high energy of competitive sports. As a yoga teacher she enjoyed seeing how movement can help heal but she began to wonder about other ways to deepen her healing practices. She discovered the potent energy of massage through many inspiring practitioners. Alissa approaches massage therapy with the holistic eye of a yogi and practical mindset of an athlete and therapeutic exercise specialist.
Since earning her Bachelors of Science in Biology in 2009, Alissa has worked closely with Physical Therapists and Chiropractors to expand her understanding of body mechanics and how to safely move through injury in the body. Alissa is also a certified Yoga and Thai Massage Therapist and teaches Anatomy and Physiology to yogis in training.
