Alexandra Appel, LMT
ALEX APPEL (she/her/hers) is a licensed massage therapist offering bodywork that addresses the multiple layers of our being. She is passionate about supporting her clients as they attune to their bodies innate wisdom and ability to be at ease through patience, deep listening, and slowly tending to the unwinding body and mind.
She likes to approach her sessions as “sensory” rituals or meditations. Her interest in spiritual practices and Eastern philosophy inform her practice. Alex offers a grounding presence, compassionate listening, and intentionality behind her work. She welcomes clients of all genders, sexualities, ethnicities, sizes, and abilities. It is important to her that her clients feel affirmed, empowered and safe, so that healing can truly occur. Her collaborative approach to bodywork includes a thoughtful discussion before and after the treatment.
Alex uses her knowledge of anatomy, along with her intuition and creativity, to integrate Relaxation and Deep Tissue massage into a client centered session. She incorporates techniques from Myofascial Release, Thai bodywork, Tui Na, Shiatsu, Craniosacral therapy, and also utilizes Cupping Therapy, Gua Sha, and Aromatherapy.
