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 graduated from East West College of the Healing Arts (Portland, OR) in 1999. I have experien... more

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.

Had a great massage experience with Tanya! She is super friendly, informative, and skilled in her craft. She provided additional body health supports and tips for when on the road and went above and beyond to answer any questions I had regarding my body as it relates to massage/healing. I would certainly recommend her to anyone who wants a massage by a calming presence who has a deep understanding of the body system and aims for their clients to leave feeling relaxed and more aligned as well as with increased body awareness.

Tanya is a truly gifted masseuse who bring knowledge, professionalism, and care to her work! I always leave feeling AMAZING. It always feels like Tanya is "fully present" when giving a massage - she knows how to find the tough spots in muscles, and hers are no 'light touch' massages! I have has massages from probably 10 different people and Tanya is hands down the best. She will remember your needs as a client and always give you a thorough and rejuvenating massage!

Tanya's work space is calming along with her music, heated blanket, aromatherapy scent in the air, and best of all her perfect amount of pressure vs her gentle touch all the way to the tip of your fingers and toes! I will be back!

So pleased with my first visit! Tanya is knowledgeable, skilled, and really great at managing just the right amount of conversation during the session. She was able to offer great suggestions for massage types I hadn't heard of before, and some really practical tips for stretches and exercises between visits. I left feeling better all over, and a lot smarter than when I arrived. :-)
