Allison has been practicing as a Registered Massage Therapist since graduating from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy Centre in 2002. She opened Synergy Massage Therapy Centre in 2004 with friend and business partner Sherri Muir to create a safe and inviting space where they could offer their clients a refuge for healing.
Every session with Allison is unique. She looks at each person as a fully interconnected being with its own innate ability to heal. However, due to the dynamic nature of our bodies we can get stuck in pain or dysfunctional patterns. By carefully assessing and listening to the body and using the most efficient and effective techniques to release adhesions and restrictions, Allison is able to help restore balance and mobility with lasting results. She provides a warm, healing environment and enables her clients to ease back into healthier, happier, and more functional lives.
Her ongoing continuing education has led her to focus on Myofascial Release, Visceral Manipulation, and Craniosacral Therapy. These techniques continue to deepen her understanding of the human body and are an integral part of her treatments. Over her years of practice she has worked with numerous conditions including stubborn postural holding patterns, athletic injuries, and digestive concerns. She has also developed a keen interest in pre and post-natal care through her own experiences in pregnancy.
Allison is an avid trail runner and dedicated yoga practitioner. She also has a passion for surfing and snowboarding, and has recently taken up mountain biking. In her spare time, she can usually be found with her husband and their two sons exploring the forests, mountains, and beaches of the North Shore.
