Alix continues to build her knowledge with ongoing education specifically focused on the fascial system in her quest to find the best tools to relieve pain, reduce stress and improve physical function and quality of life for her clients.

In her time off, Alix has a passion for surfing and enjoys travelling with her husband and 2 young daughters to their property in Jordan River and to warm water surf destinations. She also spends time running, playing tennis, painting, hiking, gardening and doing yoga.

“I have been receiving therapeutic massage from Alix Morrison for 7 years.   Alix is able to find tension in my body effectively with her understanding of the muscles and body mechanics. She re-assesses at the beginning of every appointment to determine which areas need her attention.  Alix has incredibly strong hands and techniques to release my stubborn tense muscles and I feel so much better after.  Many of her clients are athletes. Her suggestions for home exercises have proven to be helpful as well. I would not hesitate to recommend Alix to my dental hygiene colleagues and friends or anyone wanting a truly excellent experience with a pleasant, professional registered massage therapist!” – Holly McDonald, Community Dental Hygienist
“I have recommended Alix to many over the years – she is professional, energetic, a great sense of humour and an excellent RMT. I always walk out the door feeling so much better than when I walked in. She takes time to listen, assess, answer questions and makes sure I am doing exercises she recommends correctly. Alix loves what she does and it shows!” – K.R.
