Specializing in Oncology Massage and Manual Lymphatic Drainage

I have been practicing massage since 2010 and have been located here in Bellevue since 2015. From my years spent in a spa environment I strive to provide a relaxing and comfortable massage experience and from my time at a chiropractors office I also want my touch to be therapeutic.   I believe that if I combine the two to achieve a relaxing AND therapeutic massage I have done my job.

I have been practicing massage since 2010 and have been located here in Bellevue since 2015. From my years spent in a spa environment I strive to provide a relaxing and comfortable massage experience and from my time at a chiropractors office I also want my touch to be therapeutic.   I believe that if I combine the two to achieve a relaxing AND therapeutic massage I have done my job. 


These days I mostly provide oncology massage and manual lymphatic drainage but I do also offer treatment and relaxation massages as well.  A lot of the time you can expect your massage to be a blend of many different modalities depending on what you need most.  I am also studying to become a certified aromatherapist so expect exciting things in the future with that!  

In addition to my love of massage and aromatherapy, I also have wonderful husband (who teaches high school at Bishop Blanchet) and a very cute and very furry English Angora rabbit.  I have recently taken up a 'drop spindle' habit and am learning how to spin his fur into yarn, very fun!  He provides hours of entertainment :)

Thank you for taking the time to read this and feel free to send a message or call if you have any questions.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Linda has been my massage therapist for the last 2 years. She is professional, listens well, and gives me perfect massages tailored to all my needs. I can’t wait to go back!
by Shannon on Mar 14
Linda is an outstanding massage therapist! She's also very kind and thoughtful, and I appreciate her ongoing efforts to take on new skills and modalities.
by Kelly on Feb 28
Linda is the most amazing therapist that I have ever seen! I live with chronic pain and the only time that I am ever able to relax is when I am getting a massage from her!
by Vicky on Feb 23
I’ve been going to Linda for several years now! I’ve always liked how she’s uses her special skills; cupping, Oncolgy massage, warm Stones and because she offers Essential oils. She’s helped me through some aches and pains.

Love it when I can get massage therapy from Linda. She helps me manage my chronic pain conditions so well.
by Vidya on Feb 02
Linda made my experience very comfortable. Although my appointment was for one hour , she spent almost 2 hours talking to me about my concerns etc. she was not like the the typical commercial massage therapist. There was genuineness in her caring and treatment.

Nothing to dislike. It was wonderful and Linda is so skilled with both massage and lymphatic drainage.

I've been seeing Linda for 3 1/2 years, 2 -3 times a week. Her knowledge of various types of massages allows adjustments to be made during treatment. She is a good listener! Linda is always researching ways to enhance your massage experience.

I've been seeing Linda twice a month for a couple of years, and I feel that the massages I receive are an important part of my improved health and wellness after my cancer treatment. Linda is so good at making my time relaxing as well as effective for whatever aches or tension I am feeling. I highly recommend Linda!

It was really nice having done the intake prior to coming in the massage and then the brief but relaxed time to talk for 15 minutes before the massage began. I felt listened to, heard. I don't think it was helpful to have the roll under my ankles for some reason, perhaps due to the left hip injury and resulting arthritis. I'd like to have the next massage done without using the roll. I did take one Ibuprofen the evening after the massage and then another the next day which helped the discomfort I was having--the discomfort being achiness in the left hip area and fatigue I felt. That helped. Ii look forward to seeing you again Linda. Thank you!1
