Point of Balance Bodywork owner, Alyssia Abbott, trained extensively in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork in the United States. She is experienced in many modalities of massage including remedial massage, Swedish massage, deep tissue, sports massage, trigger point dry needling, pregnancy massage, and geriatric massage.

While she does perform relaxation massage, her main passion is working on a kinesiological level to try to correct postural abnormalities through massage and recommendations of stretches and exercises, getting to the root of the problem and alleviating pain. She is a member of Massage New Zealand, holding an annual practicing certificate in Remedial Massage Therapy.

She makes many of the body care products used in her treatments from scratch with natural ingredients, and chooses only the highest quality in prepared products, often sourcing from around the world.

She has experience working in spa and medical orientated massage in the United States and New Zealand. She enjoys working with clients for rehabilitation and relaxation in her Rotorua studio.
