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.

Fantastic massage. Katrina walked me through what her focus was going to be based on my pain points using muscle charts so that I was getting educated about why the massage would help my specific areas. She was professional, thorough, took her time to make sure everything was done properly, and I already recommended her to all my coworkers!

Katrina was amazing! She listened well, really helped work out the soreness from my car accident and gave me additional suggestions and exercises to do. She is extremely strong and responded quickly to any pain and adjusted pressure accordingly. I will definitely be going back to her again!
