I’m Alexandra O’Dea, former anxious corporate worker and now content and happy body worker.
For many years, I viewed massage as an occasional treat and was usually a weekend away spa package to help me forget the stresses of corporate life. Then one day, and during a particularly fraught period of work, a calm person, quite simply laid their hands on my shoulders. That connection temporarily cleared my mind, smoothed my thought process and instantly relaxed my muscles. How can that happen, I thought? Can I give what that they gave me? Well from then I researched hands-on healing, studied a diploma in holistic massage and never looked back.
Since qualifying in 2011, and thirsty for more knowledge, I continued to develop my skill base and discover new techniques to treat musculoskeletal pain. Although my journey began in London, it wasn’t long before I went travelling to study the ancient ways of the East in India and Thailand. Here the belief system, approach and techniques varied hugely to our Western ways, but the results inspired me to grow my practise by incorporating cultural massage fusion.
I’ve recently trained in Advanced Clinical Massage training with industry leaders, Jing Institute – a school with a dynamic approach to teaching, treating and promoting clinical massage therapy in the UK.
Now, my goal is to help the fine people of Birmingham live more actively, comfortably and happily by unlocking tension and releasing pain.

My experience with Alex has been 100% positive, I'm delighted to say. It's been a real eye-opener because of the particular deep-tissue techniques you practice. What's also been extremely helpful are the handy exercises you've given, small moves that I can do in the train on the way back from work or sitting in bed and that really help keep my neck/shoulder problems at bay and that prolong the benefits of your massage. I think it is as close to cure as I will ever get for a problem that I've had now for 16 years.
I've suffered with slipped disks in my lower back for over ten years. After only 3 treatments, I noticed a tremendous difference in the way I felt and the way I moved. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders and people have even noticed that I'm walking more smoothly and even smiling more. I can't recommend her enough!
