I am Chelsea, and I am one of the fun and easy going Massage Therapists here at Breathe Yoga and Massage in Vancouver, Washington.
I graduated from East West College of Healing Arts in Portland, OR in April 2008. I have experience with Deep Tissue, Swedish Relaxation, Pregnancy, Auto/Injury, Sports Massage, and Massage on children from ages 8-17. I believe in many different kinds of Bodywork and Massage Modalities, such as Chiropractic, Acupuncture, and other Massage Specialties.
I enjoy combining Deep Tissue treatment with relaxation, depending on the patient's individual needs, to reduce muscle tension, increase peace of mind, and reduce possible postural issues that affect us all. I tell many people that the world of massage, health and wellness has changed my life and has become my lifelong Passion. The human body is simply amazing and self healing. Educating people about their body is fun and exciting!
In my first year doing massage I believe that I learned more about myself and more about people than I ever have. My experience so far with going to school and working on clients has shaped the kind of Massage Therapist and person I am today.
I try very hard to be understanding and sensitive to the many traumatic or emotional issues we face that have a major impact on our body as a whole. I also believe that building trusting relationships with clients and other Health Care Providers will help the overall health and well being of our clients. That is why I am here, to help people like you and point them in the right direction of Healing and Wellness. I look forward to every new person I meet and I am always willing to talk to anyone about the many great benefits of Massage Therapy, Yoga and Acupuncture!
In my spare time I enjoy getting outside with my 3 year old Ridgeback pup, Tanner. He always brings a smile to my face with his playful and excited personality, and, in other words, he is totally like my child. I also enjoy doing creative hobbies such as pottery, mosaic tile work, glass fusing and painting. I would consider myself a very hands on person that enjoys learning while doing! I try to enjoy all of the great things the North West has to offer, such as hiking, riding bikes through Portland and generally enjoying the wonderful food and many fun places to go.
I look forward to helping in any way I can and truly being there for you!
