Tanya Ward

“Just as ripples spread out when a single pebble is dropped into water, the actions of individuals can have far-reaching effects.” Dalai Lama

I have been drawn to the healing arts since I was young. Over the years my passion for helping people live better has grown exponentially. I believe in the "Ripple Effect": when we are in balance and in tune with our body, mind and soul we radiate positive energy to those around us. My passion is to help make the world a better place by helping my clients feel better so that they can live optimally.

I have been drawn to the healing arts since I was young. Over the years my passion for helping people live better has grown exponentially. I believe in the "Ripple Effect": when we are in balance and in tune with our body, mind and soul we radiate positive energy to those around us. My passion is to help make the world a better place by helping my clients feel better so that they can live optimally.

I graduated from East West College of the Healing Arts (Portland, OR) in 1999. I have experience working a variety of settings including: private practice, chiropractic clinics, spa-like environments and outcall services. 


My massage style has been described by clients as intuitive, therapeutic, holistic, integrative and detailed. Over the years my practice has evolved into a unique blend of techniques. I specialize in Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Relaxation, Wellness, Maternity, Gua Sha (for myofascial release), Cupping Therapy and Reiki.

This was the best massage I've ever had (and I've been to dozens of providers!). Tanya combined everything I need/want in a massage therapist.... 1). Extensive interview to find out who I am and what I need 2). Extremely skilled: used lots of different touches/techniques for different problem areas 3). Perfect pressure! I usually like DEEP pressure, and even though she wasn't "nailing into me", the pressure she gave was felt deeply 4). She followed my knots/problem areas as they led her, instead of just doing a standard routine. She stuck with those areas until they actually released 5). She told me what she was doing and why, so I trusted what she was doing, as well as not laying there wondering and feeling uncomfortable 6). Ambiance was perfect; temperature, oil diffuser, music and natural "decorations" 7). Debriefed with me afterward. As the professional, told me what she felt in my muscles, and her plan for what she would want to do next time. Goes without saying.... I loved her and hope I can continue seeing her for years to come.
