Alexis'career in health services started as a biology major at UW-Whitewater. Knowing she wanted to be a career helping those in pain, but something that was a non-invasive alternative to surgery.
As the daughter of a carpenter, Alexis saw how daily stress and pain affected her family. As many parents, Alexis' father worked hard to provide for his family, but by the time he came home, his body was so sore he had little energy to be able to really enjoy, play or be involved with his children's active lifestyle.
Upon switching schools to Cortiva Massage Institute, Alexis practiced on her family, and that was when she knew massage therapy would become her life's work. Alexis' father commented that he felt like his body was "rebooting", the massage therapy gave him pain-free days to spend with his kids. Alexis derived a great deal of fulfillment knowing that her hands could bring her Dad comfort. And, as she worked on others, it became clear that massage therapy could benefit many families to stay happy and healthy.
"I want people to understand that massage isn't a luxury anymore, it's a way to reconnect and "reboot" your body."
Alexis specializes in Deep Tissue, Swedish, Pre/Post Natal, Trigger Point, and Myofascial Release.
