Gentle Intuitive Therapeutic Massage
I practice an eclectic blend of massage modalities, gathered over more than three decades of experience, and am constantly learning and refining my style. Underlying and encompassing all styles and modalities is the practice of Presence to my clients and their needs, with the qualities of Love, Compassion, and Non-Judgement. This means that whether you are receiving a deep-tissue massage, Shiatsu, or energy work, you are also receiving these qualities with my undivided awareness.

My practice is in a Naturopathic Clinic with several other wholistic practitioners, including an N.D., acupuncturists, colonic hydrotherapist, mental health counselor, and energy worker. I have a great deal of experience working with people's pain issues, and many of my clients who have pain are referred to me from the naturopathic doctor. Since stress is at the root of so many conditions, stress relief and relaxation are a major component of every massage I give. I love to see my clients get off the table at the end of their session looking more relaxed, energetic, and flexible than when they arrived!
Bio
Having learned massage at a very young age from my parents, it has always been a natural part of my life. I first qualified for a massage license in Washington State in 1978. In 1985 I was certified in California, and when I moved to Oregon I took more classes and received my Oregon massage license in 1997. I have worked in clinics, chiropractic offices, a beauty salon, in private practice, and for the last seven years in a Naturopathic Clinic, New Health Medical Center. I have also done seated massage for businesses and organizations from time to time.
