Hello! My name is Allison and welcome to Bodhi Massage. "Bodhi" is a sanskrit word for "enlightenment" or "awakening". It is synonymous with the state of nirvana, being freed from hate, greed and ego. This is a realization of blissfulness that I hope everyone feels after receiving a session from me.
I have been healing family and friends with my hands since I was a child. I always knew that this was my path. After an internship working at an advertising agency in Houston during my schooling at Savannah College of Art and Design, I realized that the universe had given me the opportunity to choose early which path I wanted to take. I needed to follow my passion and true path to help heal the world one person at a time. So I quit art school to follow this dream and have not regretted it one single day. The joy that comes from healing is a gift that I am blessed to experience on a daily basis. Sometimes all it takes is a healing touch to transform your life.
My work focuses on helping each person individually and empathically. I use a combination of western science and eastern techniques that facilitate and support your body's own healing capabilities.
I received my formal training from Lauterstein-Conway and graduated in 2011 with 500 hours of training. I have taken classes in Reiki, Thai massage (from TMC in Chiang Mai, Thailand), Cupping (from the International Cupping Therapy Association), Shiatsu, and Reflexology.
