I come to massage from a background of outdoor endurance sports.  Working for many years as a paddling, rafting and trekking guide in Alaska and Antarctica, I became keenly aware of repetitive use injuries and the need for long-term muscle maintenance and rehabilitation. 

 

In 2005 I attended my first massage training at the Heartwood Institute of Massage, and completed a 700-hour program at the Vancouver School of Bodywork and Massage in 2007.  Thereafter, I went on to create the Wellness Program for One Ocean Expeditions, offering massage and yoga on board their ocean going fleet in the Arctic and Antarctic.  I returned to Alaska in 2010 and as my family grew, so did my interest in injury treatment, prevention, and massage techniques to maintain muscle health and performance. 

 

I went on to complete training in Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, Lymphatic Drainage and Orthopedic Deep Tissue techniques.  I firmly believe caring for our muscles, connective tissue, and joints is an integral part of our overall wellness.  In our sessions my goal is to alter muscle restriction, alleviate pain, support soft tissue healing, and promote deep relaxation.  

 

If you would like to schedule a pre- or post-event treatment that requires challenging timing please call me directly.  I am also happy to see you for PIP of L&I claims.

She was skilled in her practice and in educating me about my body and recovery.

Mo has the wonderful ability to identify my muscular needs and addresses each skillfully to alleviate any pain I may have been experiencing. Since I work from home behind a computer screen all day, my aches and pains are many. I am forever grateful for her pleasant attitude and professional demeanor.

Mo’s ability to explain great but understandable detail what was going on with my body. Her massage and advice on further care was excellent!
by Karen on Mar 17
She was gentle but got the job done considering it was my first massage ever.
by Stephanie on Mar 08
She listens to my physical issues and also is incredible at discovering areas that I didn’t even realize were causing distress
by Spencer on Feb 17
Great service. Knows a lot about injuries. I should have asked to have a little more pressure on my hamstrings and quads. Great relief in my upper back.

She is a down to earth person who engages in meaningful conversation during a relaxed treatment. She knows her clients needs and focuses her energy to alleviate pain and discomfort.
