Alicia practices a combination of Shiatsu, TuiNa, and additional appropriate modalities during her bodywork sessions. She uses the theories of Chinese medicine to activate specific acupuncture points, while easing muscles and promoting a sense of harmony in the body. Alicia has also studied HARA abdominal massage, which activates the visceral organs to help the body recover.
