Rochester Welcomes A Hard Knot Life

Life as a portrait photographer is physically demanding. When I'm not lugging around my studio equipment, I'm straining to get the right angle — higher, lower, or smashed against the wall. A good massage makes all the difference at the end of a long week.

Alyse Leidich is my go to massage therapist. She recently opened A Hard Knot Life, her very own practice in Downtown Rochester, on Main Street! While the business is new, Alyse has been practicing for years. 

Tell us about your business

As a licensed massage therapist, I work on the whole person. I focus on healing and beneficial care and treatment of the whole person. My clients consistently tell me that the issue they came with is significantly better or gone. My mission is to help you achieve optimal health through my services and through my network of healthcare professionals. 

What is the one thing people do not know about your industry but should. 

You don’t need to wait until you have an injury to be seen by a licensed massage therapist. The longer you wait, the longer it will take to heal. Massage therapy is not just a spa treatment or pampering. While that has its place, in this industry the emphasis is on preventative care and maintenance.
