Alison Pittman, CMT
Certificate # 725
I've been certified by the California Massage Therapy Council. My Certificate number is 725. I have practiced Massage Therapy since 2003. I am a graduate of the Cumberland Institute’s 500-hour course in Holistic Massage Therapy, located just outside of Nashville, TN. The course work included classes in Swedish massage, Integrative massage therapy, Kinesiology, Craniosacral massage, and Acupressure for massage. I have also taken courses in Reiki, Access Bars, and pre- and post-natal massage.
I believe massage can be customized to be suitable for many different preferences in what people want to achieve through massage. It can be equally beneficial applied at a lighter or deeper pressure, with a lot of active work or mostly still work. I always respect the boundaries and wishes of the recipient.
I decided to become a massage therapist because I have always had an interest in massage and I wanted to be in a career where I can help people along their journey to become healthy and happy. One of the rewards of my work is that people enjoy coming in for appointments and walk out feeling better.
In addition to massage, I am into knitting lace right now. I enjoy the combination of relaxation and concentration that it brings. I also have fun baking, gardening and spending time with family and friends.
