Beatrice, LMT  |  Specializing in Swedish, Relaxation, Trigger Point, Deep Tissue and Prenatal Massage

Where did you study?  Everest Institute, Tigard Campus

When did you graduate?  August 2013

What do you like most about massage?  Being able to make a difference in someone's life through touch is very rewarding. I love to see my clients progress and be able to do things they never imagined being able to do again. It is a relaxing environment to be in for myself and for clients. I enjoy helping people be able to relax and forget about all their stress, even if it's just for an hour. Their reactions during and after the massage are priceless. I wouldn't want any other career, I am very happy being an LMT.

What are your favorite modalities / specialties?  I love doing head and neck work.  Being able to get rid of people's head aches and helping them reach more range of motion in their neck is amazing. I enjoy doing Swedish Massage,Trigger Point Therapy, and also Deep Tissue. I don't just do one modality, I try to incorporate them all into a session.

Why do you feel those modalities / specialties are effective?  All of the modalities are effective but I like to start out with Swedish to warm up the tissue, then go to a little deeper work where I really get in there and access the muscles. If I find any trigger points I use trigger point therapy to release those, then go back over with Swedish to flush out all the toxins and relax the muscles again. They are all effective and complement each other to help benefit the client as much as possible.

Anything special you'd like to share about yourself?  I enjoy helping out others. I haven’t traveled much, I was born and raised an Oregonian. I love mother nature, going on walks, bike rides, and just being out there and enjoying life.

Caitlyn, LMT  |  Specializing in Swedish, Relaxation, Deep Tissue and Prenatal

Where did you study?  East West College of the Healing Arts

When did you graduate?  December 2012

What do you like most about massage?  I love the healing connection that happens in massage, the way a body will let go of pain, both physical and mental, when another human being compassionately touches it. I love the way I can feel people's stresses and worries melt away.

What are your favorite modalities / specialties?  My favorite modalities are Swedish, CranioSacral, Deep Tissue, and  Prenatal. I love working with athletes, especially runners and bikers. I have worked with many runners and bikers, and being a runner myself I know the common injuries and complaints. I have taken classes in treating migraines to pair with my craniosacral training, as I have a lot of interest and experience in working with and treating people with headaches, migraines, and TMJ issues. I also like to work on people who have had an injury, such as a car accident or workers comp, and work in conjunction with their treatment team of doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapists to help the body integrate and accept the harsher work those professionals perform. My clients and I also like to joke that I specialize in putting anyone into a deep, relaxed sleep.

Why do you feel those modalities / specialties are effective?  I feel that they blend well together to help me facilitate the body healing itself. Deep tissue doesn't have to hurt! I use a blend of Swedish and deep tissue that allows me to get into chronic tight areas by bringing relaxation to a muscle before I dig in with some deeper techniques. When you get off the table you will have more range of motion, without the soreness that can occur post deep tissue massage. I am also a Certified Pre and perinatal Specialist, meaning I have extended training in working with mothers both before and after birth and the common problems and complaints that comes with pregnancy and labor.

Anything special you'd like to share about yourself?  I enjoy spending quality time with my husband and our dogs, being outdoors, and being active. I was born and raised in Oregon, and love this beautiful state.

REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT WITH CAITLYN

Cameo, LMT  |  Specializing in Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy, Adhesion Release, Cyriax Cross Fiber Friction (scar tissue realignment), Rib Head Mobilization, Diaphragm Release and Rib Cage Mobilization.

Where did you study?  Everest Institute, Tigard Campus

When did you graduate? January 2012

What do you like most about massage? I have always liked the idea of healing through touch. I find it deeply rewarding to be able to help others increase the quality of their life.

What are your favorite modalities / specialties?  Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy, Adhesion Release, Cyriax Cross Fiber Friction (scar tissue realignment), Rib Head Mobilization, Diaphragm Release and Rib Cage Mobilization.

Why do you feel those modalities / specialties are effective?  The human body is not a lump of clay to be mushed. There are so many different types of tissue in so many different layers. Each one moves and operates on it's own and at the same time together. Every part and layer needs to be approached differently and at the same time, brought into harmony with everything else to create a truly relaxed environment. That calls for modalities that range from breaking up something that should be moving differently to another that relaxes something that is moving too much.

Anything special you'd like to share about yourself? I love to learn new techniques and ways to approach certain problems. At the same time I love to teach what I have learned. I find it rewarding. I also have two little girls and a husband I adore. I am a blessed person.

REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT WITH CAMEO

Carleen (aka "Charley"), LMT  |  Specializing in Prenatal, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Deep Tissue, and Swedish

Where did you study?  Cortiva School of Massage - Seattle

When did you graduate?  December 2010

What do you like most about massage?  I really like helping people, and it’s very rewarding work to be able to use my hands to lessen someone's pain, or help them to have a moment of peace from their busy day.  It’s wonderful to work with clients over time, and to see them have better functioning and less pain.  It’s nice to know that I was able to be a part of that healing process.

What are your favorite modalities / specialties?  Prenatal Massage, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Deep Tissue, and Swedish.

Why do you feel those modalities / specialties are effective?  Each of my favorite modalities has reasons why they’re so great.  Prenatal is fun because I get to help women with easing discomfort during such an amazing transition in their life.  Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) reduces edema (swelling) for clients and the results are often very dramatic.  MLD is empowering for clients because I can teach them a short version that they can practice on themselves to aid in the healing process.  Deep Tissue allows me to affect deep muscle tissue to help relieve longer-term issues, over time.  I also enjoy practicing Swedish because it’s so soothing and nurturing, and clients leave the session much more relaxed.

Anything special you'd like to share about yourself?  I was in social work before I did massage and I love working with people.  I’m trained as a yoga teacher and am in training as a Nutritional Therapist, so I love to incorporate aspects of these modalities into my massage practice when possible.  All of these things have helped me to have a better understanding of how to approach my clients in a healing, holistic way.  In my free time I do a lot of reading (and studying), and I love to hike and go blues dancing!

Christi, LMT  |  Specializing in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Craniosacral and Relaxation

Where did you study?  Oregon School of Massage   

When did you graduate?  September 2014

What do you like most about massage?  I absolutely love massage! I am constantly fascinated by the body and how healing takes place within it. I am always learning new techniques to evolve as a therapist. What is most rewarding is making a difference for a client; helping them find relaxation or addressing an area of stress or tension and working it out. I am very present in that moment for them and feel it makes a huge difference in their massage experience.

What are your favorite modalities / specialties?  Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Craniosacral and Relaxation.

Why do you feel those modalities / specialties are effective?  Each modality has it’s place and can be very effective. I find it best to start out slow and then get deeper into tissues and work out adhesions from there. I often combine different modalities to get the best results.

Anything special you'd like to share about yourself?  I grew up in Oregon, then lived in California and moved back here to the Portland area about six years ago. I am so happy to be home. I love animals and the outdoors. I have two beautiful daughters that bring such joy to my life! I am extremely grateful.

REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT WITH CHRISTI

Jenny, LMT  |  Specializing in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point and Myofascial Release

Where did you study?  Three Oaks Academy & Integrative Clinic in Boise, Idaho

When did you graduate?  November of 2013

What do you like most about massage?  It gives me the opportunity to help someone and make them feel good; I love the changes that massage can bring to a person physically as well as mentally. It’s rewarding when I can aid someone in developing a greater body awareness and help them to pinpoint what is bothering them. Massage is also a great tool in teaching and allowing ourselves to let go, which can be so difficult in our busy lives.

What are your favorite modalities / specialties?  Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point and Myofascial Release.

Why do you feel those modalities / specialties are effective?  All massage is therapeutic, but I particularly like to combine them to provide a more rounded massage for people. Swedish is fantastic to not only increase your circulation but to relax your mind and slow down that nervous system. Deep Tissue and Myofascial are great at helping with specific problems and can help to release muscles and trigger points.

Anything special you'd like to share about yourself?  I love the outdoors and to wander on hikes or walks, I am originally from Missouri so living close to the mountains is a dream come true for me. In the winter you will find me on a mountain skiing and the rest of the time hiking. If I’m indoors, it’s reading and listening to music. I love animals and have two amazing dogs.

REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT WITH JENNY

Jessica, LMT  |  Specializing in Lomilomi, Swedish, and Deep Tissue

Where did you study?  Maui Academy of Healing Arts in Kihei

When did you graduate?  August 2008

What do you like most about massage?  I love that massage is such a rewarding career. I get to go to work, relax, and enjoy a spa setting, all while making people feel rejuvenated and happy!

What are your favorite modalities / specialties?  I was lucky enough to go to massage school in Hawaii, so my specialty is the Hawaiian style of massage, Lomilomi. It is not only my favorite to do, but to receive as well. It uses a lot of forearm work and mimics the ocean waves. It is very relaxing and soothing. Lomilomi actually means to knead, to rub, or to soothe. The lomi routine I learned was from a native Hawaiian and has been passed down through her family for centuries. So if you'd like to try something a little different, but amazing, come see me! I also studied swedish, sports massage, deep tissue, polarity and table shiatsu.

Why do you feel those modalities / specialties are effective?  Massage in general is so good for the body in so many ways. I am a strong believer that regular massage can not only benefit your physical health, but your emotional health as well. Every modality will do something different, but positive for you.

Anything special you'd like to share about yourself?  I moved to Portland in 2012 to go to cosmetology school and haven't got to experience Portland too much so far. I love to hike and to go to the coast (I love the ocean!). I also enjoy reading and listening to music. So, if anyone has any suggestions on fun stuff to do or new music to try, let me know when you come in!

REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT WITH JESSICA

Jillian, LMT  |  Specializing in Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Hot Stone

Where did you study?  East West College of the Healing Arts

When did you graduate?  October 2014

What do you like most about massage?  Being able to improve health and increase happiness through touch is a beautiful and satisfying experience. I love that massage offers me the opportunity to make a positive change in people's lives everyday.

What are your favorite modalities / specialties?  I enjoy doing Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Hot Stone work. I also studied Thai massage and I like to incorporate Thai techniques into a table massage session; passive stretching, compression, and sen line (energy pathway) work are all very effective and therapeutic.

Why do you feel those modalities / specialties are effective?  Each modality has something unique and beautiful to offer and every body has different needs. I like to work with my clients to design individualized treatments and I incorporate the modalities that will give them the most therapeutic experience.

Anything special you'd like to share about yourself?  I studied English and creative writing at Oregon State University before moving back home to Portland to study massage therapy. I love what I do and am so excited to learn new massage modalities. In my free time I love reading, taking trips to the coast, and spending time with family, friends and my pet hedgehog Harriet.

Kate, LMT  |  Specializing in Deep Tissue, Relaxation, Trigger Point, Injury Rehab and Prenatal

Where did you study?  Everest Institute

When did you graduate?  June 2011

What do you like most about massage?  I enjoy helping people in any manner I can. Massage allows me to help people de-stress, relax and feel better, which in turn fulfills my desire to help people.

What are your favorite modalities / specialties?  Deep Tissue, Relaxation, Trigger Point and Injury Rehab.

Why do you feel those modalities / specialties are effective?  I like to give a massage that is deep-to work out adhesions, but also relaxing so that I'm better able to get the adhesions out.

 Anything special you'd like to share about yourself?  I'm a mom to two handsome little boys and we love exploring the outdoors. I also love to travel. I've been to almost half the states and traveled to a few places in Europe. I can't wait to explore more countries!

REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT WITH KATE

Kelly, LMT  |  Specializing in Craniosacral, Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release and Prenatal

Where did you study?  East West College of the Healing Arts, Portland OR

When did you graduate?  March 2013

What do you like most about massage?  It’s all about wellness! Taking care of yourself, being more in-tune with your body, and helping the body work better.

What are your favorite modalities / specialties?  I enjoy Swedish, CranioSacral, Deep Tissue and Myofascial Release.

Why do you feel those modalities / specialties are effective?  With any modality, I want to get the body into the parasympathetic mode AKA RELAXED! In this “rest and digest” mode, the body is more willing to accept and facilitate change and healing. So while incorporating myofascial release or deep tissue, I strive to do it in such a way that is still allowing the body to relax. I look at things like compensation and holding patterns, postural issues, and referred pain when making my assessments/treatment plans. Our muscles remember everything and are amazingly complex.

 I am especially excited about CranioSacral (CST), which is a very gentle and relaxing modality that is great for a variety of issues. Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, I aim to release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.

Anything special you'd like to share about yourself?  I was a caregiver for 12 years; I have a bachelor’s degree in Community Development; I am from Minnesota, love animals, live music, and photography.

REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT WITH KELLY

Melissa, LMT  |  Specializing in Deep Tissue

Where did you study?  East West College of the Healing Arts in Portland Oregon

When did you graduate?  April 2013

What do you like most about massage?  The direct impact it makes on the overall well-being of each person I work with. I can see changes immediately, and people continue to improve after each session.

What are your favorite modalities / specialties?  I have been focusing on deep tissue for the last year. But I am interested in learning other techniques in order to have more ways to individualize the massage for each person I see.

Why do you feel those modalities / specialties are effective?  Deep tissue gets down into those tight muscles and works the fascia and trigger points out. It's the most effective way to reduce pain and tightness.

Anything special you'd like to share about yourself?  Deep tissue is my specialty, but I am able to accommodate those who want a light pressure, relaxation massage. By listening to each individual's wants, needs, and expectations, I can accommodate a variety of preferences. I make the session yours.

REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT WITH MELISSA

Olga, LMT  |  Specializing in Deep Tissue and Sports Massage

Where did you Study? St-Petersburg National State University of Physical Education, Sports and Health (Russia) and Oregon School of Massage.

When did you graduate? November 2013

What do you like most about massage? I like to help people move toward a higher state of wellness. I believe that therapeutic massage along with exercise and good nutrition should be a part of every health lifestyle. Massage has a natural way of healing and can help those who want to be restored back to health. There are no incurable diseases, only the lack of will. Regular massage is an absolute must for those who are health and active. I like to make people feel better, more flexible, energetic and pain free.

What are your favorite modalities / specialties? Deep Tissue and Sports Massage. I like to incorporate Myofascial techniques, Swedish, some Shiatsu and passive stretching to my session.

Anything special you'd like to share about yourself? I live here in Mountain Park and love the area. I like dancing, swimming, hiking, traveling and being with my husband and children.

REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT WITH OLGA

Rachel, LMT  |  Specializing in Deep Tissue and Tui-Na

Where did you study?  East-West College of the Healing Arts

When did you graduate?  December 2013

What do you like most about massage?  Massage can be used to treat so many different things, not just tense muscles. One of my clients was postmastectomy following breast cancer; I decreased her scar tissue and helped her regain the use of her right arm. Another was suffering from severe edema in his left leg after a bad bike accident; I worked to decrease the swelling and get him back on his feet. Massage has been shown to help depression, insomnia, digestive issues, and many other ailments. I like the idea of improving someone's health and happiness, even in a small way.

What are your favorite modalities / specialties?  My speciality is a combination of Deep Tissue and Tui-Na Massage. Tui-Na ties in closely to Traditional Chinese Medicine. It uses acupressure at certain points in the body to move Qi, the natural energy of life, throughout our limbs and organs in a manner very similar to acupuncture (but without the actual poking).

Why do you feel those modalities / specialties are effective?  Tui-Na looks at the person as a whole: their body, their emotional state, and their behavior. All of these are important aspects of our lives and are considered when choosing a treatment path for each client. Also, it can be performed on a client that is fully-clothed, if you would be more comfortable that way!

Anything special you'd like to share about yourself?  The path to massage therapy has been long and windy for me. It includes a stint in the US Army, a year spent teaching English in Japan, working behind the scenes in Hollywood, and resuscitating patients in an ICU. I feel like all my many and wildly varied experiences informs my bodywork in unique ways.

REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT WITH RACHEL

Satheara, LMT  |  Specializing in Deep Tissue, Thai Massage, and Tui-Na

Where did you study?  East West College of the Healing Arts

When did you graduate?  December 2013  

What do you like most about massage?  Massage is more than just a career to me, it is a lifestyle, and I benefit from giving as well as receiving bodywork. The thing that I enjoy most about it is being able to help people relieve pain so they may continue enjoying the things in life that make them happiest.

What are your favorite modalities / specialties? I have studied deep tissue, Thai massage, and Tui-Na. My style is mostly a mix of deep tissue and Thai massage modified for the table. Which technique I use depends on how your tissue feels and responds to my touch. I also do therapeutic scraping, also known as gua sha, which can help break up adhesions or scar tissue and increase circulation so the area can better heal itself.

Why do you feel those modalities / specialties are effective?  All massage helps with resting and digestion. The modalities I tend to use also get in deeper to create lasting pain relief. Deep tissue and Thai massage techniques work to release adhesions, increase blood flow, and separate muscles that may be stuck together.

Anything special you'd like to share about yourself?  How I decided massage was the right career for me is a fun story. I have always loved giving people massages, but the "aha" moment came when I was giving my dog a massage before bedtime. I realized that if I can make my dog feel good, I can make people feel good too! Other fun facts about me are I enjoy yoga and have an adorable husky named Arya.

Where did you study?  East West College of the Healing Arts


When did you graduate? December 2010


What do you like most about massage? I love being able to help people relax and be in the moment with their massage and mind. I really enjoy that certain aspects of massage are very scientific and technical, while others are free flowing and completely in another realm.


What are your favorite modalities / specialties? CranioSacral Therapy, Relaxation and Swedish Massage. I also love working on the hands, feet, the low back, and the neck and shoulders region.


Why do you feel those modalities / specialties are effective? These modalities are the most effective because they bring us back to our bodies. It is a stressful world and getting back to homeostasis and balance so we can heal is key.


Anything special you'd like to share about yourself? I love doing hot yoga, running and being with my husband, family and friends. I am also currently training for my first half marathon run.

Whitney, LMT  |  Specializing in Deep Tissue, Injury Recovery & Prenatal Massage

Where did you study?   I studied at Metro Business College (MBC) in Cape Girardeau, MO for the bulk of my education and East West College of the Healing Arts in Portland, OR for an additional class in kinesiology.

When did you graduate?  I graduated from MBC in 2005 and East West in 2008.

What do you like most about massage?  I get to make the world a better place by helping one person at a time come more into harmony with their physical body.

What are your favorite modalities / specialties?  I love pre-natal massage!  I also specialize in deep tissue and soft tissue injuries.

Why do you feel those modalities / specialties are effective?   I believe that massage during pregnancy is incredibly important to help the mother's body adjust to the many changes she is experiencing physically, chemically, and emotionally.  It also helps to relieve stress, which helps the mother, the baby, and everyone involved.  Massage can take place during any point of the pregnancy and post-partum.  I enjoy doing deep healing work and helping people recover from injuries so they can regain full function and avoid having residual symptoms.

Anything special you'd like to share about yourself?  I am a sound healer, a musician, and I am studying to become a music therapist.  This is a very exciting time in my life, and I am ready for it!

REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT WITH WHITNEY

Yelena, LMT  |  Specializing in Deep Tissue, Swedish, Trigger Point, Myofascial Release and Muscular Energy Technique

Where did you study?  Everest Institute, Tigard Campus

When did you graduate?  December 2014

What do you like most about massage?  I love how rewarding massage is and that I can help others with a healing touch. The most interesting thing about massage is that I learn something new with every massage and it’s always different.

What are your favorite modalities / specialties?  All massage is beneficial and can be therapeutic in its own way but Deep tissue, Myofascial Release and Muscular Energy Technique are by far my favorite. I also like to incorporate some stretches and nice smooth strokes so the client can feel relaxed yet receive a deeper, more effective massage.

Why do you feel those modalities / specialties are effective?  I feel that there is always a right place and time for each modality because each body is unique and needs a different approach to it. During the massage the tissue itself will let me know what is best and lead me in the right direction, so I like to do a little bit of everything.

Anything special you'd like to share about yourself?  I love helping others and taking care of people. I’m an avid reader and like to learn new things such as different techniques or anything to do with the human body. I haven’t traveled much but one day I hope to have the chance to see other countries. I love spending time with family, friends and my community.
