PRENATAL (PREGNANCY) 

A prenatal massage is a great way for expecting mothers to find relief and relaxation. Prenatal massage can relieve aches in your back and neck, leading to a better night’s sleep. 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. 

ASHIATSU

Ashiatsu is a massage technique that involves the application of the therapist’s feet, rather than the hands to deliver deep compression, long gliding strokes, and/or assisted stretching.Ashiatsu techniques are assisted by the use of bars and a can also be performed with the therapist seated on a chair. The pressure ranges from light to very deep depending on the client's preference. For more information about Ashiatsu, call us or click to read

VIBROACOUSTIC THERAPY- inHarmony Music Sound Lounge

The ultimate soothing experience that will transport you into a fully immersive meditative state like you’ve never felt before. Session is experienced while laying on a sound bed, fully clothed. It's recommended that you wear comfortable clothing. Blankets and pillow available, but you may bring in your own as well.

You’ll hear and feel vibrations through headphones and the tactile transducers that are built into the Sound Lounge itself. Your brain puts you inside the music for a fully immersive sound experience.

 

Sound Lounge session for targeted conditions

While the inHarmony Sound Lounge is powerful in and of itself, it is meant for generalized health benefits. Vibroacoustic Therapy, while it may seem new has been around for over 40 years. It's becoming more popular and has an increasing amount of scientific research behind it for a multitude of health conditions. Having customized, research-based therapeutic sessions with Ali, a Certified Vibroacoustic Therapist is highly recommended if you want to address specific conditions.

ABOUT

ABOUT

Welcome to Northern Bliss Massage & Wellness. I'm Ali Smith, a Licensed Massage Therapist, Holistic Health Practitioner and Certified Vibroacoustic Therapy 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, reflexology, therapeutic stretching, and techniques from additional modalities like deep tissue, decompression therapy (dynamic cupping), lymph drainage, 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.), Ashiatsu Certification- Barefoot Trainer's Ashiatsu (2023), past member of Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals and current member of American Massage Therapy Association. Licensed (LMT) in Michigan. Previously Certified (CMT) in California.  Certified Vibroacoustic Therapy Practitioner. Cannabis educated.
