Hello! I'm Alex Jokela, Licensed Massage Therapist, owner of Precision Massage Therapy in Billings, Montana.
I specialize in massage therapy for pain and discomfort of the head, neck and shoulders. Many of my clients work stressful jobs, suffer from old injuries and experience headaches, stiffness and issues of the upper body. I target those areas to restore function and range of motion to provide you relief from pain and discomfort. I believe massage therapy creates an experience that allows clients to better understand their relationship with the body so they can live as pain free as possible.
In 2014, I worked as an Orthopedic Surgical aid at the Billings Clinic. While I loved the work, my body really started to feel the high demands, excessive stress and fatigue of the job. As a co-worker asked me to massage her shoulders after a 10 hour surgery I realized in those five minutes she escaped the pain and felt immediate relief. That's when I decided I wanted to be a part of the solution, left the job, enrolled in massage therapy school and became REALLY passionate about massage therapy. Many of my hard-working clients experience similar discomfort and it is my mission to relieve their pain.
I graduated from Health Works Institute Bozeman in 2016 and moved back home to Billings, Montana to open my own massage therapy practice. My husband and I love to explore the rocky mountains and enjoy soaking in the hot springs our beautiful state has to offer.
