Alisha Hoover, RMT
Alisha is a Registered Massage Therapist and utilizes massage therapy as a tool in assisting her patients to find balance and achieve their body’s optimum potential. Whether treating chronic pain, injuries, postural imbalance or pre natal women, Alisha recognizes that every BODY is different. She addresses each patient as a unique individual, customizing each session based on assessment and discussed treatment goals.
Her journey into bodywork and massage began while living in Asia and having the opportunity to observe how different cultures adapt to pain, illness and dysfunction. She completed Thai Massage training at the International Training Massage School in Chang Mai, Thailand in 2008. Thai Massage combines elements of bodywork, yoga and reflexology. She is also certified in Shiatsu, an acupressure massage technique based on Traditional Chinese medicine. Through her personal and professional experiences with health and wellbeing along with an interest in modern science and functional movement, she graduated from Utopia Academy as a Registered Massage Therapist in 2011.
In clinical practice, Alisha uses techniques such as Myofascial Release, Muscle Energy, Joint Mobilizations, Passive and Active Stretching and Deep Tissue Therapy. Alisha enjoys a regular yoga practice, hence breath and body awareness have become an integral part of her treatment approach and a foundation for homecare exercises given to her patients.
