Welcome

Update as of 5/20/2021:

I've received my COVID-19 vaccines and am ready to massage! At this time, the building I'm in is allowing vaccinated people to forego masks. I'm still a bit unsure about all of this and waiting for guidance from the Oregon Board of Massage Therapists, which I imagine we'll see soon. For now, I'm willing to do mask free massage for clients who show their vaccination card at the time of the appointment AND had their last vaccine more than 2 weeks prior. Otherwise, masks should be worn while you are laying face up on the table, but will not be needed while you are face down. I may just continue to mask up for a while because it really doesn't bother me much and I want to be extra safe. I hope you will bear with me as the procedures may change as more guidance arrives.  Thanks!

When you arrive, I'll be taking and recording your temperature using a no-contact thermometer. I'll be asking you some additional questions during our intake related to the virus. You should not come in for a massage if you or anyone you spend time with has the following symptoms:

Fever
Dry Cough
Fatigue
Difficulty Breathing
Loss of Taste or Smell

As always, if you are feeling ill you can reschedule your appointment free of charge. This also applies if you have been around someone who knows they have the virus, or is experiencing the symptoms above. Please let me know as soon as possible if you need to reschedule. 

Thanks for your patience with these changes as we cautiously go forward into this brave new world. When you are ready, I look forward helping you achieve optimum wellness!

Welcome!

Glad you're here. If you're looking for a professional, therapeutic or relaxation focused massage you've come to the right place. My top priority is to help my clients feel better: mind, body and spirit. As a massage therapist, yoga teacher and former competitive gymnast I’ve developed a strong intuition, based on education and experience, about the needs of a body in motion. As a former desk-jockey, I understand only too well the issues and pains that develop from over-use of technology in non-ergonomic work situations. Whether you choose soothing Swedish massage, healing Deep Tissue massage, or invigorating Thai Massage, we will focus on creating an optimum sense of well-being for you. Massaging with mindful attention, I use a combination of techniques and modalities to help you return to a pain-free, relaxed experience of your body, which I believe is your natural state. My treatments are therapeutically effective in relieving headaches and migraines, speeding the healing of muscular injuries, relieving pain and stress, increasing freedom of movement throughout the body and more. After your session, I will suggest follow up stretches or exercises that will help you maintain the benefits of your massage. I also offer private yoga instruction designed to help you meet your mental, physical and spiritual health goals.

Thanks again for visiting, and have a great day.
