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.

Mo is definitely very good at medical massage I will keep using her for my massage needs thank you.

Having herniated a couple of discs a few years ago every so often I experience excruciating lower back and sciatica pain. Mo is very understanding and works to get the muscles to let go so they are not cinching on the nerves. She is very compassionate about her work, has a great sense of humor and knows what she is doing. After a session with Mo I begin to feel the relief in about an hour. I would highly recommend Mo and her miracle hands!

Mo was great. She asked me what pain I was feeling and in what areas. One of the best massages I've ever had.
