I am a Portland, OR native and love it here (rain and all!) In 2005, I graduated from East West College of the Healing Arts and became licensed as a massage therapist. I have over 11 years of experience as a provider and recipient of therapeutic massage working with all kinds of people, from athletes to the elderly. My massage style leans more towards the relaxation end of the scale. I’m not a “no pain, no gain” kind of therapist. I believe in finding the right pressure to get the job done without stressing the body, and more often than not, less truly is more. I have been a Shamballa MDH Reiki Practitioner (Level 4) since 2003. The healing energy that is naturally flowing during each session increases the effectiveness of the massage by promoting greater relaxation and deeper work with less force. To me, massage is truly a healing art and it is one of my creative outlets, in addition to painting, writing, and gardening.
