Alicia Harrison, born and raised in BC, obtained her massage therapy diploma from the 3000 hour program at OVCMT in Vernon. Her passion for massage was driven by a desire to help others. Recognizing stress and chronic pain in those around her, while facing her own migraines, tension headaches and sporting injuries over the years, she realized how important it is to take care of our bodies, remain active and seek alternative health care for optimal balance and performance.
After graduating college she attended the Dr. Vodder School in Victoria and obtained her full certification in Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) and Combined Decongestive Therapy (CDT) in order to work with a broader spectrum of patients. Alicia then returned to the wonderful Okanagan to set down roots and start her massage therapy practice.
Alicia's treatment style is based on Swedish massage, incorporating myofascial, deep tissue and instrument assisted techniques, trigger point release and neuromuscular therapy. Alicia loves working with a varied clientele and welcomes new patients from all walks of life into her practice. Every individual is so unique and that keeps things interesting!
Her goal is to educate clients on postural awareness and uses of hydrotherapy (hot and cold) she also enjoys taking the time to incorporate therapeutic exercises for clients to assist in their own healing.
