DOWNTOWN PORTLAND - massage only
(Mon. & Tues.):
Excellent question! I have specialized in injury recovery massage for the past six years and have helped many people onto a path to vibrant wellness. I work with people every day who strive to keep their feet on the dance floor or on the trail or just get through the day without a headache.
My work is not spa massage. I spend most of my time focusing on areas of injury - which is not to say I only focus where you feel the pain. Often the cause of pain is some distance away from where you feel it, and my job is to seek out those problematic areas and help you rebuild a strong and fluid connection between the recovering area and the rest of your body.
Abdominal Adhesion, Trigger Point, Myofascial Release, "Deep Tissue"
These are all descriptors of my work. In regular words, I concentrate on releasing layers of tissue (skin, fascia, muscle, tendon) from each other - generally in a specific order of depth. Trigger points are often uncovered during this type of work and are dealt with as a matter of course. Though this work can be intense at times, most clients leave feeling very relaxed and more free in their bodies.
There are a lot of different ways to do this kind of work, and everyone who practices this type of massage does it a bit differently. I try to keep my work grounded in the principle of methodical and thoughtful consideration of your individual situation. There is no single answer to injury recovery (or relaxation and stress-relief) and I am always happy to answer any questions you may have.
