As a registered member of Massage New Zealand, AlViva’s founder, Alison Wainscott has achieved the highest levels of training, and has the skills, knowledge and qualifications needed to provide both therapeutic massage and neuromuscular treatment.

She has training in Oncology Massage to ensure that she can provide the best possible support to clients living with a serious illness.
