MEET ALEXA PONTIUS, LICENSED MASSAGE THERAPIST
Massage Techniques: I consider myself to be a “Body Mechanic.” I utilize a combination of modalities to loosen fascia and lengthen and release muscles so that “knots” (trigger points) dissipate. This restores blood flow to the affected area(s) enabling the client to have better range of motion and alleviation of pain.
My favorite type of bodywork: I prefer modalities that release fascia (connective tissue) and trigger points, restoring both blood flow and balance in the body. This breaks the pain cycle and creates better range of motion and muscle stability.
What fitness and wellness means to me: I believe sound nutrition is the core of wellness. There are many foods that cause inflammation in the body, causing painful muscles and joints. Exercise is a critical component as well because without movement the body becomes stiff and sluggish. It is also important to take time to just “be” with no planned work or activities so that both the mind and body have time to rest and decompress.
Why my clients feel better: My clients feel better because I customize therapy sessions to fit each and every client. No matter what shape a person is in by taking “baby steps” we can achieve both physical and nutritional goals. I teach clients to become mindful of posture and stress and the importance of stretching between sessions so that there is maximum benefit from massage.
How do I stay active: I love to hike! I also work in my yard and have play time with my dogs. I challenge myself in the gym to stay both strong and agile.

"I would highly recommend taking time to have a massage with Alexa. She really identifies problem areas and has helped me with my shoulder, left arm, and back. I would never be where I am today if I had not booked multiple massages with Alexa. You won't be sorry...you'll just feel better!" - Henny Weissinger, FT Client
