The Gift of Relaxation

The guiding principle of Alison Trowbridge Massage Therapy is that massage, when performed with full attention and focus, can have profound benefits for an individual’s overall health and well-being. It can help people achieve levels of physical, emotional and spiritual relaxation that otherwise may be missing from their lives.

Types of Massage

Swedish-Based:

A combination of long, gentle strokes working into shorter ones with stronger pressure. Depending on your preferences, this massage can be quite deep and focused to address specific muscle tension or it can be more general and diffuse to encourage overall lengthening of muscle fibers. Either way, it will leave you feeling deeply relaxed yet invigorated.

Hot Stone:

Heated stones are placed on the body and used to massage the tissues. This releases tensions and soothes tight muscles, allowing deeper working of the tissues without the discomfort sometimes associated with deep techniques. The addition of aromatherapy oils helps balance the body and mind.

Ashiatsu:

Ashiatsu is a massage technique in which the massage therapist uses his/her feet to give a deep, compressive massage. The therapist’s body weight is used to provide continuous, deep strokes and the broad surface of the foot allows for consistent pressure.  It is based on practices from traditional bodywork methods in China, Japan and India.  Overhead bars on the ceiling are used by the therapist for balance and stability. Ashiatsu can very effectively help with chronic pain, increase range of motion, and produce deep relaxation.

About Alison

I am a massage therapist because I love massage, both giving and receiving it. I strongly believe in the beneficial effects of bodywork, having experienced them myself and seeing the improvements and joy massage brings to my clients’ lives.

I studied Integrative Bodywork at the Green Mountain Institute in North Bennington, Vermont. Integrative Bodywork focuses on physical manipulation of muscles and soft tissue while incorporating energy balancing techniques to help re-establish the connection between body and mind.

In 2005 I started my practice, traveling to clients’ homes with my table. For the last several years I have maintained an office in Newfane, Vermont, although I still sometimes travel to people’s homes.  Please note that after the recent fire, I am now located at 598 VT-30, home of the former Newfane Country Store.

I truly believe that everyone can benefit from massage and that it is one of the best ways to care for ourselves and enhance our health. This work gives me great joy and I feel honored to share it with you.
