Alissa Cisco, LMT
Licensed Massage Therapist, She/Her
Alissa is an intuitive massage therapist who believes that our bodies harbor both physical and emotional trauma. Her massage sessions are customized to each person’s unique needs, often starting with activating the parasympathetic nervous system. This promotes relaxation, reduces stress, alleviates anxiety, and helps the body shift away from the “fight or flight” response, fostering holistic healing of the mind, body, and spirit.
Alissa holds a degree from East West College in Portland. She is passionate about alternative healing methods for preventive care, pain management, and holistic well-being. She employs various techniques, including gentle yet deep myofascial release and trigger point therapy. Outside of her practice, Alissa enjoys time with her husband, cats, and rescue dog Clifford, along with cooking, exploring apothecary and alchemy, paddleboarding, watching hockey, and traveling whenever possible.
Patient Care Coordinator, She/Her
Along with that, I also volunteer at Kaiser Permanente, making sure patients are welcomed and guided upon entering for their appointments. In my free time, I enjoy baking and spending time with my family and my fiancé. At D’vida, my goal is to make sure everyone feels comfortable and knows that I am always willing to help where I can.
Assistant Office Manager, She/Her
A native Oregonian, she loves exploring the coast with her family but also enjoys staying in with a good book. An avid coffee drinker, you will almost always see her with a cold brew!
