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 the best!

I appreciate Mo; herskill, knowledge and professionalism
by Cheryl on Mar 09
I sit behind a computer all day, so having some pain relief from massage is a necessity for me. Mo is very skilled in finding and relieving the multitude of tense muscles and associated pain. She listens carefully and respectfully to her clients to provide the best care possible. I have NEVER come away feeling bruised or over-massaged, always relaxed and feeling better.

Mo was awesome! She made sure to focus on what was hurting and made it a relaxing massage.

Mo is fantastic!! She has been working the kinks out of me for the last couple years after my car accident and has greatly benefited me allowing me to keep up with my busy work and basketball schedule. If you are an older (or younger) athletically active person I highly recommend monthly medical massage by Mo!

Mo was great working with me, I feel like the actually took the time to help understand. I loved the massage - but I also have a feel for what I can work on myself. Thank you Mo!

Mo is very nice, professional and knowledgeable. I left feeling relaxed and also informed about how to better protect myself against injury in the future.
