Everyone always asks the pronunciation and meaning of my name: Aisha, pronounced (I) sha is of Arabic origin and means “alive” or “life”.  I was born in upstate New York and raised in Virginia.  I studied art at Virginia Commonwealth University focusing on ceramics/pottery, which I still enjoy.

I completed my massage therapy education in Boulder, Colorado at the Boulder College of Massage Therapy.  Offering over 1000 hours of instruction, BCMT is an international leader in massage therapy education.  I graduated in 2002 and immediately moved back to Richmond, VA where I began my private massage therapy practice.                      IMG_7925

In addition to my practice I am currently also the Massage Therapist for the Mens and Womens Track and Field Team at Virginia Commonwealth University.  I have experience working in a variety of settings:  physical therapy office, wellness center, spa, business offices, and local charity events.  For as long as I have been a professional I have also been a volunteer and member of the American Massage Therapy Association.

I have served as Second Vice President for the AMTA Virginia Chapter, Vice President and President of the AMTA Richmond Unit.  I am Nationally and State Certified and insured.  I am certified in Prenatal, Postpartum and Fertility massage.  I have training and experience as a Birth Assistant (Doula).

I have witnessed amazing transformation and healing in my clients over the years.  I am honored to work so closely with individuals and their families from birth to elder, those in health and those in search of better health.

If I cannot help with a specific need I am happy to refer you to a therapist who can.  Thank you for taking the time to visit my site!

In Health,

Aisha Oxendine, Certified Massage Therapist
