Massage Therapy by Alyssa Kartheiser

Hello, my name is Alyssa Kartheiser. I grew up in Nelson County and moved away for a while. Now I am back in Afton/Nellysford and interested in finding massage clients in the area. I have been a licensed massage therapist in the state of Virginia for 7 years and am Board Certified by the NCBTMB. During my career, I have worked in many different settings with clients of various needs and physical conditions. I received my initial training as a Holistic Health Practitioner from Heartwood Institute, in California, in 2009. My foundation is in Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage and Craniosacral Therapy. In the ensuing years, I have learned myofascial release techniques, medical massage and various pain relief techniques through continuing education courses. I also have a Bachelors degree in Kinesiology and Exercise Sciences from the University of Hawaii. I use all the techniques I have learned over the years to create a customized massage tailored to the needs of my clients, and specialize in both relaxation and pain relief. I also provide a type of water bodywork called Aqua Energy at a pool in Afton ( It is a combination of Watsu, craniosacral therapy and massage. This type of bodywork is done while floating in body temperature water and facilitates deep relaxation as well as joint mobilization and pain relief. Please call 540-836-9288 for more information and to schedule an appointment. Looking forward to working with you and have a wonderful day.
