Allen is the owner and lead therapist at Bodies in Balance Advanced Muscular Therapy. He has been involved in the healthcare and wellness fields for nearly 30 years. He attended the diagnostic imaging and allied health degree programs at Albert Einstein Medical Center and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, PA and graduated at the top of his class. He began his career as a medical imaging technologist (X-ray/MRI) in 1989. During that time, he worked in a variety of clinical settings including hospitals, operating rooms, trauma ER's, private imaging centers and orthopedic/sports medicine practice.
In 1996, he took a more “hands-on” approach to his work and enrolled at the Phoenix Therapeutic Massage College. After completing the 735 hour program with honors, he transitioned from his imaging career and opened Bodies in Balance Integrated Therapeutics, a clinical and sports massage therapy practice in Scottsdale focused on soft tissue pain, injury rehabilitation and restorative wellness. While he has worked with professional athletes from the NFL and MLB, Ironman triathletes and accomplished dance performers, he largely attends to "everyday athletes" who seek help with painful neuromuscular conditions or want to maintain their structural health, mobility and active lifestyles.

Allen specializes in a wide range of hands-on therapy, movement assessment and corrective exercise solutions for common musculoskeletal problems and chronic pain conditions. His treatments are specific and tailored to clients' individual needs rather than taking a "cookie-cutter" approach. He enjoys educating clients about how their bodies work and self care methods that can give them control over their own results. He has a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of human anatomy, function and movement coupled with a compassionate and easy-going manner.
Allen has completed hundreds of continuing education hours and advanced certifications in Neuromuscular Therapy, Orthopedic and Sports Massage, Fascial Stretch Therapy, Neurodynamics, Pain Science, Movement Assessment and Corrective Exercise, to name a few. He continues to devote an extraordinary amount of time and effort toward expanding his knowledge and skills through self-study and continuing education. He has studied with some of the most advanced instructors in soft tissue therapy and injury rehabilitation in the world. He works in conjunction with local physicians, physical therapists, chiropractors and fitness professionals as an adjunct to their care or as a stand alone solution. Through his own encounters with soft tissue pain and injury he has gained a depth of understanding about what his clients are experiencing and how to chart a course toward wellness and a life without pain.
Alistair began his career as a massage therapist in the 1990's in Derby, England with a focus on Classical Shiatsu therapy. He moved to Arizona in 2013 and recertified thru the Cortiva Institute's 700 hour Professional Massage Therapy program. His focus of study included Myofascial Release, Sports & Deep Tissue massage. Alistair's fascination with the human body and its development has since led him to explore and study other advanced modalities. His study of Anatomy in Motion (AiM) revolutionized his understanding of how we move and use our bodies, particularly in gait. NeuroKinetic Therapy (NKT) is a muscle testing technique which reveals neuromuscular imbalances that demonstrate which tissues require release vs. those that need strength/stability. Lastly, Functional Anatomy assessments allow the therapist to quickly and accurately evaluate which structures are most likely creating dysfunctional movement patterns that contribute to a client's experience of pain. The combination of these modalities has allowed Alistair to create a practice that balances a solid understanding of anatomy and assessment with high quality soft tissue and movement therapy. He continues to learn and refine new techniques in his practice that help people live pain free lives where movement is the medicine!
