Katrina is a professional, Licensed Massage Therapist in Bend Oregon and owner of Bend Alpenglow Massage. Her unique approach to massage blends Ashiatsu with Neuromuscular Deep Tissue and Myofascial Release techniques. Cupping, Trigger Point Therapy, Aromatherapy, and Swedish relaxation techniques are also available. Katrina's massage style is slow and intentional, waiting for the tissues to respond before moving to the next area of tightness, pain, adhesion or trigger point.


Until she found herself recovering from injury, Katrina thought massage was for brides-to-be and professional athletes.  Having come from a background of mortgage sales and bookkeeping, Katrina is no stranger to how the body feels sitting behind a desk all day. She utilized her bookkeeping knowledge and applied it to an office manager role for a local Bend wellness center that included acupuncture and massage. Experiencing the freedom in movement that regular body work and self care provides, she was inspired to become a licensed massage therapist herself. She attended COCC's dedicated massage program and became licensed in 2016.


Since becoming licensed, she hasn't looked back, and began working immediately as a full time massage therapist. In July of 2016 she moved to Oakridge Oregon to ride mountain bikes in new terrain and to open her first private office, Oakridge Massage. After 3 years of running a successful practice, she relocated back to her home of Bend to again begin her own practice. After all, there is no place like home and Bend's miles of connected trail available from ones doorstep. In the summer of 2020, Bend Alpenglow Massage found a permanent home to open within the Blissful Heart Wellness Center.


Katrina continues to expand her knowledge and approach to massage, focusing on treatment massage that is deeply effective and therapeutic. The training she received in Neuromuscular Deep Tissue from Bill Musser, has shaped her approach to treatment massage. She has developed her skills in traditional Chinese Fire Cupping through the great teaching team in Bend, Cupping Dynamix. Shortly after becoming licensed she sought out training in Ashiatsu massage. this style of massage was intriguing to Katrina, as it allows the therapist to better use their body weight to apply deep tissue pressure comfortably, by using the broadness of the foot. She received her Ashiatsu training through Mudra Massage and DeepFeet Bar Therapy in Portland. While these are the foundations of Katrina's massage, she also studies and utilizes Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Swedish Relaxation, Aromatherapy and Prenatal Massage.


Whether you are recovering from injury, or time well spent outside, Katrina will deliver a massage that is both relaxing and deeply therapeutic.

Best massage therapist I've ever had. Very knowledgable.
by Steve on Jun 30
The Ashiatsu was very effective with excellent pressure which was nicely distributed. This was my first time for that type of work, and I enjoyed it. I highly recommend Katrina.

I would highly recommend Alpenglow massage to anyone looking for a massage. One of the best massages I've ever experienced.

Amazing massage. I’d never experienced Katrina’s style of massage before, and it was fantastic. I had had a really hard day, and was kind of a mess when I came in for my massage, but she put me right at ease, and I felt much better when I left her beautiful space.

Bend Alpenglow Massage by Katrina was the most amazing massage I have ever had in my 56 years. I have had many many massages both here in Bend and Portland and this was by far the best massage. I was not sore yet the massage was firm. I felt great afterwards. As an RN I am on my feet and work hard. I appreciated being pampered.

Katrina knows what she’s doing. You seldom see this level of quality out there. At times, the ashiatsu felt like a four hands massage! Hands down, in my top five favorite masseuse on all time.

I have been having body work done by Katrina for about a year now. She can work on injuries (I went in for a shoulder issue after a ski fall) or for a relaxing massage. Beautiful setting in Blissful Heart. Highly recommend.
