"Ali is my go-to masseuse! Her space is soothing, beautiful and inviting and she’s kind and very in tune with what your specific needs are. I’ve had a number of different massage styles done, my favorites being ashiatsu and more recently Thai yoga massage, which has been helping immensely with a pinched nerve. Truly cannot recommend this woman enough."

the STUDIO

Situated on 10 serene acres, my private studio is truly in the backcountry yet only 15 minutes from downtown Kanab. We are surrounded by peaceful, golden shinarump mesas (actually, the first "step" in the Grand Staircase National Monument) and protected BLM land. Relax with a complementary cup of tea after your massage and feel the spirit of the ancient ones who lived and thrived among these breathtaking cliffs.
 

Massage can be performed outdoors, weather permitting.

ABOUT

ali massage therapist

Ali Route, Licensed Massage Therapist/Owner

After earning my professional massage therapy license in January of 2016 and through early 2022, I worked at luxury spas One Ocean Resort in Atlantic Beach, FL, Five Petals Spa in Zion National Park, and the world famous Amangiri Resort in Big Water, UT. I learned so many amazing top tier treatments and thrived in the upscale environment where celebrity clients entrusted me with their care. But something was missing; the deeply healing connections I have now built with my private clients. 

Currently, I practice exclusively out of my private southern Utah studio ​where I've honed an incredibly strong intuition and healing ability. There's truly a deep connection with my clients and most would agree there's more to a massage than manipulating tissue. I create a safe, restorative and transcendent healing experience. 

In 2023 I became certified in Integrative Somatic Trauma Therapy. Clients who have a history of trauma that presents concerns with touch therapy receive extra attention. I provide in-depth communications before, during and after the session and offer the utmost respect for your boundaries and comfort level. 

My dog, Roxy, and I welcome you to our backcountry haven and thank you for entrusting us with your care.

Be well,
Ali & Roxy Route
