"I would like to recommend Allison for a great pre-natal massage. I am 38-weeks pregnant, with my second child. Allison did a great job of targeting the muscles supporting the extra weight from my belly. The deep tissue massage helped to relieve tension and relax my body. During the session, I was having visions of my body being prepped for labor and delivery. I enjoyed her techniques and smart, skilled, strong hands. I'm glad we have plans for me to come back after delivery. This level of body work sounds perfect for readjusting my body after pregnancy. Thank you, Allison!"
"Allison is amazing! After dealing with chronic pain throughout my body for years (years of athletics and two knee surgeries), she was able to remediate a lot of the issues I had in one session. My body is much more aligned and pain-free after our session. She was able to quickly understand the issues and assess where they stemmed from. Needless to say, I already set up another appt as I want to ensure I maintain this alignment. I would highly recommend her to anyone dealing with chronic physical pain or even looking for a little body work. She is awesome an dI know I will continue to visit her for regular treatments."
Allison Ayer does excellent bodywork. I went to see her after running back-to-back 30-mile trail races and my legs were in rough shape. She quickly found the trouble areas and went to work. After an hour session I was already wishing I'd signed up for 90 minutes! She's easy to communicate with and will adapt the session to whatever your current needs are. The environment is relaxed and not so new-agey feeling as a spa. She was able to get me in on short notice and also gave me a lot of recommendations on other practitioners (yoga, rolfing, etc.) around town. I'll definitely be back!"

"I've been seeing Allison monthly for the past three years and she is absolutely fantastic! I'm an active person, as well as someone who spends way too much time in front of a computer, so I have all kinds of issues. Allison is so good at identifying the cause and working deep to relieve it. If I didn't see her regularly, I would be a mess. I can't recommend her highly enough!"
