I began my career in the health field as a Physical Therapist Assistant in 1993.  After practicing for a couple years, I decided to go back to school to become a Massage Therapist.  I studied at the Oregon School of Massage and received my massage license in 1996.   I'm dedicated to both my fields in massage and physical therapy.  As a massage therapist, I value each and every client I am given the opportunity to meet and ultimately help.  My goal as your therapist is meet all of your needs, from muscle injury recovery to decreasing stress and tension.  As a physical therapist assistant, I am honored to work in a pediatric setting with special needs children.  The life lessons I learn from these children are so valuable to me.  To balance both of these careers,  during the school year, I typically run my massage practice in the late afternoons during the week and Saturday mornings.  I try to accommodate my clients as best as I can.  So if you need a time I do not have listed, contact me directly and I'll do my best to work with your schedule. 
I am a wife and a mother, my youngest is a sophomore in college and I have two grandsons.  When I am not working,  I enjoy spending time with my family, creating in my craft-room, and getting together with friends.

I love my massages

Darra always makes my tight shoulders feel better. I always feel relaxed after her massage. I would highly recommend her.

Been seeing Darra for probably over 2 years. I have a problem with sciatica and she has helped me manage it so I can continue to live a full life. I recommend her to any friend or acquaintance who complaints of neuro-muscular pain. Those who have seen her have had similar positive experiences
