Introduction: ***i am pleased to announce, I am fully vaccinated. *** 😊 I have been a licensed massage therapist with the state of New York for nearly 6 years! I absolutely love, love, love it!!! Helping people is not my job, it is my passion! I have a small private practice as well as, work for the “Uber” of massage, Soothe. My treatment generally runs 60-70 minutes because I like to have the time. I never enjoyed working in a spa because it was like “assembly line” work to me. I enjoy doing my treatment and addressing any and all issues my client may be having. I like to follow up with with my clients with what I like to call “homework”. This may be stretching, ice, rest, etc. It is my ultimate goal to help get you back to your ultimate health!!! When I ask a client, how their shoulder is? He reply’s “it’s great! It’s all better!” I say, “I’ve served my purpose!” So, if you are in the need of a licensed professional feel free to follow me on Facebook and Instagram at Massage by Alaina! There, you can read my 5 star reviews! I hold a 4.6 rating with Soothe as well! I look forward to working with you all! Thank you for your time! ✌🏼💆🏻‍♂️💆🏻‍♀️✌🏼 Warmest regards, Alaina Hannides, LMT PS! Please note: Unfortunately, I have to state this because people often times get the wrong idea about my profession - This is a strictly professional treatment. There is no sexual component to his massage. Please be respectful of that at all times! Thank you ✌🏼 One more thing! I’ve noticed there are some men that request male therapists. If it’s because you feel a woman isn’t strong enough. I will quote one of my male clients “You have freakishly strong hands for a girl!” So, let me know if I can help!

Alaina is spectacular. Not only is she an excellent massage therapist but she listens and delivers exactly what you need and targets problem areas specifically. As busy as she is she always finds time. My schedule is crazy busy and all the other places never had any time when I needed a massage and she always finds a way to get you in. I pray everyone use her, she is by far THE best. God bless your practice Alaina...

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I think it’s fair for both parties. I do offer specials at my location. You can see some of them in the photo section of my profile! Check them out!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Intake information: I ask tons of questions! I want to know medical history, etc. But first I say, what hurts? I want to know any and all issues you may be having. So I can try to fix them all! I also give homework. Such as, rest, heat, stretching etc. Look, I’m not here to just take your money and run! I want to fix the issue!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    From 2012 til 2014 I attended New York College for Health Professions, where I earned my Associates in Occupational Studies. While there, I tried to take all the electives that would enable me to provide the best treatments; deep tissue, reflexology, trigger point therapy, etc to name a few. As a LMT in New York State we are required to take continuing education credits. I just completed 24 credits in prenatal,
