It improves circulation, reduces nervous tension, and can help relieve depression and anxiety. Remember to speak to your OBGYN first to decide if prenatal massage is right for you. Massage can be received on a massage table, seated in a chair or through reflexology, however the client is most comfortable.

Welcome to Northern Bliss Massage & Wellness. I'm Ali Smith, a Licensed Massage Therapist and Holistic Health Practitioner. As a massage therapist I recognize the inherent healing capabilities of the human body and work through massage and the power of intuitive touch to facilitate positive physical and emotional changes for my clients.
In today’s busy world, where we can be connected 24/7, providing ourselves with very little rest or time to recharge and heal illness or injury, it is vital to overall wellness to slow down, listen to our physical bodies and be kind to our emotional and mental beings. Bodywork is an essential component to maintaining a healthy physical body, aging with wellness, reducing our reactions to stressors and keeping the mind sharp. Stress and illness are factors that are growing in frequency for many, taking effect on everything from our sleep, energy levels and decision making, our capacity to be present, ability to avoid or reduce disease states and our inability to feel in balance.
I specialize in and have a passion for therapeutic Swedish massage (Circulatory), incorporating acupressure and meridian work (Tui Na), energetic bodywork, lymph drainage, reflexology, therapeutic stretching, and techniques from additional modalities like deep tissue, decompression therapy (dynamic cupping), Lomi Lomi and craniosacral massage, based on the needs of my clients. Regardless of a client’s bodywork needs, I enjoy creating an environment in which you are able to wind down into deep relaxation.
Training includes: 2017 200 RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) Sanctuary OC, 2019 Reiki Levels 1 & 2 natural healing techniques and esoteric acupressure used to improve physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing, 2018-2020 Holistic Health Practitioner Program (1000 hrs.), member of Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals and American Massage Therapy Association.
