Massage and Bodywork Specialties: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Pre-Natal, Cupping, Massage for Minors
"I am truly passionate about helping people find peace amidst the stresses of life and relief from the pain that those stresses can cause. In 2019, I graduated from Bodymechanics School of Massage and Myotherapy and received my license to practice Massage Therapy. I was trained in a variety of modalities including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Cupping Therapy and Prenatal Massage, and I prefer to take a hybrid approach by intuitively tailoring each treatment.
I'm very excited to continue my education to broaden my array of techniques and abilities to help others. When I'm not practicing bodywork, I enjoy hiking, snowboarding, spoiling my animals and traveling with my husband."

"I initially felt called to study Massage in Kauai, Hawaii, my home for 15 years. I ended up focusing on my art and passion for designer jewelry during most of my island years. Upon moving to the mainland, the healing arts made their presence back into my life, and I completed my calling of becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist when I graduated from Everest College in 2016.
I believe in the body’s ability to heal from within and that using massage and energy work helps to aid in healing the whole self. I work slowly to assess what the body needs, working to alleviate any tension or pain. My style combines a mixture of Swedish, Deep Tissue and Trigger Point massage. I also likes to incorporate the effectiveness of Thai Scraping (Gua Sha) and Cupping Therapy. Through compassionate and careful listening, I use the intuitive art of Reiki to move energy and balance the chakras. I address both physical and energetic issues, gently ushering your body towards peace, balance, relaxation and the potential for profound healing."

"I slowly transitioned into my career as a massage therapist since 2002 after receiving my initial Certification in Massage and after teaching for many years. I began my teaching career at alternative High Schools in Colorado and Alaska before having an amazing opportunity to teach and study in Japan for nearly 3 years. I had an apprenticeship for two years in Shiatsu and studied vigorously. I then transitioned to guiding hikes and cross country skiing in Alaska’s wilderness while working as a massage therapist at a Hot Spring Resort once I received my Alaskan license. I continued to work as a Massage Therapist at a Chiropractor’s office and Wellness Center while in Alaska. When I moved to the PNW, I obtained my Washington License in 2014 and began teaching Massage Therapy and working as a therapist at Breathe Yoga & Massage.
In addition to my extensive Shiatsu training, I have advanced training in Thai Massage, Reflexology, Aromatherapy and Yoga. I loves to utilize positive energy and skilled techniques to provide professional, therapeutic care to each individual I come in contact with.
I am also a long time student and teacher of yoga and enjoy music, outdoor activities in all seasons and gardening. I especially love spending quality time with my family and close friends."

"I fell in love with the Pacific Northwest while on a summer road trip back in 2009. I have lived in many places in the US, but none of them are quite like here. In 2013 my dream became a reality when I moved from Alaska to Oregon. Being a chef and culinary instructor in Alaska, I moved here mainly for the food and beverage culture but stayed here for everything else. After being in the food industry for a few more years, I realized that I needed to shift into a new career and decided to transition to massage. I went to massage school to create a new career for myself but left school with a newfound passion.
In January 2018 I graduated from East West College of the Healing Arts in Portland and became a licensed massage therapist for Washington State. While at East West, I was trained in Swedish Massage, Myofascial Release (MFR), Deep Tissue, Facilitated Stretching, Neuromuscular Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy and Craniosacral Therapy, all of which I love to blend into my massage sessions to cater to each person.
I am also very passionate about the Feldenkrais method, which is a form of bodywork that can repair impaired connections between the motor cortex and the body. In a Feldenkrais session, I direct attention to habitual movement patterns that are thought to be inefficient or strained and attempt to teach new patterns using gentle, slow and repeated movements. Slow repetition is believed to be necessary to impart a new habit and allow it to begin to feel normal. After taking Feldenkrais classes, I feel that I must continue my education in this endeavor so I can share this wonderful knowledge with clients. I currently enjoy incorporating the Feldenkrais method into my work.
I believe that massage can facilitate healing, pain relief, increased flexibility, increased range of motion, improved circulation, relaxation and overall well-being. I am excited to share this powerful work with people, including athletes, weekend warriors, sports/work injury clients, retirees, minors or anyone who needs to just take some time for themselves. You are always welcome on my table. I believe that the body has the innate ability, locked inside each of us, to heal and find its own equilibrium. It is my goal to help unlock that hidden ability and to aid your own journey to health and well-being. Through massage and bodywork, we can find what works for you. I’m lucky to be a part of such an amazing group here at Breathe, and I look forward to working with you towards your goals of health and happiness."

"I have been an active licensed massage therapist since January 2014. Throughout the years my massage has evolved into a unique mixture of Swedish, Deep Tissue and energy techniques designed to alleviate stress and tension within the body. I have a passion for essential oils and enjoy using them as a way to enhance the effects of my craft.
My goal as a massage therapist is to create a quiet and calm space for others to let go of mental chatter and find pure relaxation. I incorporate minimal guided meditation techniques into my practice to assist clients in becoming mindful and present. I believe that present moment awareness is the key to allowing the necessary space for our bodies and minds to truly relax and restore.
I began working at Breathe Yoga and Massage in May of 2016. Today it is an absolute dream come true to own and operate Breathe with the love of my life, Zach. Together we strive to further the growth of Breathe and to sustain a tranquil, relaxing studio that provides incredible massage therapists and class instructors for the fantastic individuals of our community."
