I have known and loved Alicia's work as a yoga instructor for seven years, and feel so fortunate to be her bodywork client. Alicia's knowledge of human anatomy, form, and function combined with her understanding of the human spirit is nothing short of masterful. The massage felt amazing, and the experience itself was both holistic and healing.
