Sharese AndersonBoard Certified Massage Therapist
Hello, I'm Rese! I've been a rehabilitative bodyworker since February 2006 and have practiced in the greater Seattle area until moving to Alaska in July of 2023.
I have currently completed an approximate 25,000+ hours of body work in my career and I currently specialize in treating ailments due to overuse, post operative rehab, injuries, chronic pain, body mechanics and postural imbalances.
I use techniques intuitively based comprehensively on not only what I see and feel, but what you feel as well; communication about your lifestyle and how you're feeling throughout your treatments is key! I use the knowledge I've gained through advanced training over the years in body mechanics, Chinese medicine, fascia patterns, trigger point pain patterns, functional movement, as well as my personal experience in seeking improvement in my own health and participating in extra curricular activities such as yoga, weight lifting and dance. I continuously strive to learn about anything that can help myself feel better, be better and live better, in turn, enabling me to share this knowledge with my patients!
My primary focus is to help you, which may be gentle firm pressure, lighter fascia work, deep tissue, cupping or gua sha, sometimes even you participating in movements to help provide an active release!
