Discovering a Calling to Natural Health

Before becoming a massage therapist, Andrea worked as a veterinary tech for eight years. She saw firsthand the healing power that massage therapy had for animals. She herself had also benefited from many massages before.

When her daughter started preschool full time, Andrea was ready to try something new. One day, she tried to work through the tension on a friend’s shoulder. That’s when she realized she wanted to learn more about effective massage techniques.

Expertise You Can Trust

Andrea enrolled at the National Holistic Institute and completed her certification in 2007. She has had 720 hours of formal massage therapy training, plus 15 years’ experience working in chiropractic offices, day spas, and medical spas.

Andrea has also invested in over 130 hours of continuing education. She has studied everything from specific approaches to prenatal and oncology massage to best practices for carpal tunnel and trigger points. She has also done two six-day intensive full body dissection courses to boost her scientific understanding of the body.

A Healing Technique for Everyone

Andrea provides deep tissue massage to relieve chronic muscle tension, headaches, pain, and nerve dysfunction causing both acute and chronic issues. She uses a combination of myofascial release techniques, trigger point release, acupressure points, and instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (gua sha). She also does lymphatic drainage.

Self-care plays an important role in Andrea’s own life. When she’s taking a break from work, she loves spending time outdoors, watching movies, and creating abstract acrylic paintings and mixed media art.

Annie Freitas

Annie Freitas, Massage Therapist

For Annie, the massage therapist at our San Ramon location, the best part of her job is getting to know each of her clients and their unique needs. Most of them want pain relief, and almost all hope to relax and take a break from their busy lives.

She loves being able to give her clients the best of both worlds: nurturing touch as well as a firm elbow to work out the kinks.

Discovering the Power of Healing Touch

It all started when Annie got her first massage. She was working as an administrative assistant, and her boss became a massage therapist. Annie served as one of her boss’s first clients. After a few sessions, her neck pain vanished. That’s when she decided she wanted to have healing hands, too. She’d been looking for a way to help people without working in the medical industry, and she knew she’d found it.

Annie completed a 720-hour program at the National Holistic Institute in Emeryville in 1996, where she studied anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, Swedish and Shiatsu style massage, and deep tissue work. The following year, she did a comprehensive Myofascial Release program, which prepared her to relieve repetitive stress injuries and postural issues. Since then, she has pursued continuing education through courses over prenatal, sports massage, and passive release techniques.

A Lifestyle of Wellness

Annie loves working at Alexander Chiropractic and Wellness because she knows that patients often need a combination of both massage and chiropractic care to truly get well and maintain a healthy lifestyle. She doesn’t believe in being an unhealed healer, so she gets massages and adjustments regularly.

In her free time, Annie loves long walks, yoga, weight workouts, and spending time with friends, since keeping a strong social network is an important part of stress relief and healthy self-care.


Taylor Tillinghaust, Massage Therapist and Corrective Exercise Specialist

Taylor graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from Cal Poly, where she helped the men’s soccer team. While working as a personal trainer and corrective exercise specialist, she realized her clients needed to work through old injuries and scar tissue, so she went back to school for massage therapy.

Although she can give a basic Swedish or deep tissue massage, Taylor specializes in a combination of myofascial and active release therapy that breaks down painful adhesions in the muscle and facial tissue. She integrates massage with corrective stretches and exercises to retrain your movement patterns. Although this work can be painful, it’s worth it to feel good in your body again.


Alyssa Gosling, Office Manager

Our office manager, Alyssa Gosling, is passionate about helping every patient walk out feeling better than when you came in. She has always preferred specialty health care. She’s excited to use her administrative skills to make it easier than ever for more people to access natural health care.

Treating Her Patients Like Family

Before discovering her passion for chiropractic, Alyssa worked in veterinary hospitals.

Even as she cared for animals, she found herself laughing, crying, and commiserating with pet owners through good and bad times. This experience prepared her for celebrating and caring for chiropractic patients on a personal level. She loves getting to know people better and tending to their needs in any way she can.

Administrative work comes naturally to Alyssa. She’s great at scheduling appointments, as well as verifying and staying up to date on insurance. Alyssa also uses her sharp memory to help patients feel seen and known. Some of her office tasks are fun, like choosing what movies to play in the office each day. Her favorites are Star Wars, La La Land, early 2000s films, and Disney movies like Tangled and Ratatouille.

A Life of Wellness, Curiosity, and Joy

Alyssa will graduate with a Psychology degree from Biola University online later this year. She is fiercely loyal to causes she believes in, like the precise health care at Alexander Chiropractic and Wellness.

Everyone who meets Alyssa knows she’s full of life. A major foodie, she loves steak and challenges herself to make a new recipe every week. She speaks a little German, plays a lot of board games and video games, spends time with her dog, and stays involved with her church.

Alyssa often goes driving with the sunroof down, singing along to her favorite songs as she explores new places on day trips. She tries to soak in the history and the beauty of every location she visits, as she enjoys the wonder of it all.
