"The only work that will ultimately bring any good to any of us is the work of contributing to the healing of the world." -Marianne Williamson Read

I have been a massage therapist since 2001 after graduating from Heartwood Institute in Northern California. I initially became interested in massage therapy after sustaining several manual work related injuries as a teenager and young adult. By the time I was 21 I had sustained a broken tail bone, a major soft tissue/joint injury to my jaw, a soft tissue injury to my pelvis, and was feeling the beginnings of carpal tunnel syndrome. I was in a great deal of pain and believed that choosing a p... more

Notable Experiences

Bodywork
Private Practice
I have maintained a thriving private practice specializing in Myofascial Release for chronic and acute pain and healing of body, mind and spirit here in Eugene OR since 2012.
Private Practice
I practiced Myofascial Release both in a home office as well as in a Midwifery clinic in Redway, CA between 2004-2012. I specialized in prenatal work and post natal rehabilitation as well as assisting clients with chronic pain, acute injury, post surgical treatments, and those dealing with trauma.
Balance Chiropractic and Wellness
I worked for Dr. Eva Whitmore as a massage therapist and assistant between 2001-2004 where I treated patients primarily dealing with pain from automotive accidents and workplace injuries. I learned a great deal from Dr. Whitmore in the beginning of my career and brought those lessons of professionalism and integrity forward into my private practice experiences.
Coaching
Herbalist/ Health Counselor, Occupy Medical

I provide free of charge health consulting and no cost herbal medicine/health supplements to all regardless of financial situation weekly as well as working with a team to maintain herbal apothecary supplies and administrative/non profit support.

Within the scope of 'we're all a work in progress', my star score generously leaves you room for your journey. However, within the scope of these superficial scoring systems - the americanization of value - I give you all fives. Thanks for all you do.

Roxanne has worked wonders on my body. She listens closely to my description of what is happening, asks pertinent questions, and then provides a very intuitive treatment with great suggestions for after-care. I recommend Roxanne to anyone, especially those interested in getting to the root of their problem. I have had many different kinds of body work in my life, but the benefits I have had from Roxanne's treatment are superior to anything else I have experienced.

Roxanne is an amazing massage therapist. She has been able to get things to shift with my body that have been problems for a long time. I enjoy her energy and thoughtfulness around working to find out what the root of the problem is. She is very knowledgable!

Lasting improvement seems to be slow improvement, but after only one visit the amount of relief I felt was astonishing--and it's sticking; the relief persists. Breathing's easier, stress seems overall diminished, and I'll be coming back to get the next layer worked on!

R addressed just what was needed. Perhaps some heavier blinds for the late afternoon sun would be good. Overall very effective treatment. Nice space.

This is the best body work I have ever received and I've had them all. Roxanne is professional, kind and easy to be around. I've been in chronic pain for 9 years with a dislocated jaw and severe TMJ resulting in head, back and neck pain. I have tried everything and this is the only thing that's ever helped. More than helped, healed.

I cannot tell you how happy I am to have found Roxanne. Her level of knowledge of physiology, body mechanics, and myofascial release is incredible. She actively listens and will not put you or your body in jeopardy at any time. She is the epitome professionalism.

Roxanne is a very professional and skilled LMT. She does myofascial bodywork and assists the release of tissue in the body. She does a great job reading the body and focusing on where the tissues need work. Her work is gentle yet very effective.
