Drawing from 15 years of massaging pro and amateur athletes, Alexa can quickly identify and treat common or complex injuries related to sports.
She has taken sports specific CE classes through Altis combined with a lifetime of knowledge in dynamic movement patterns, force distribution, soft tissue load and nervous system response. She combines a variety of techniques to create an authentic, individual treatment. Treatment styles include, myofascial release, trigger point release, SMRT, cranio-sacral, strain/ counterstrain, pin and stretch, fascial stretching, cupping, gua-sha and hot stones.
Alexa specializes in runners, including track & field, marathon & trail running. She also has experience working with tennis, golf, baseball, football and hockey players, XC skiers, mountain bikers, triathletes and swimmers.
She continues to master the timing of treatments to best support athletes during their season. She works with athletes to plan out when to receive treatments throughout their training year and how often. This is crucial for a successful pre and post-recovery for their event.
When Alexa is not treating clients, she is training for 25K trail races, exploring Puget Sound on her Paddle Board, traveling and gardening.
