"Breathing in I calm my body. Breathing out I smile. Dwelling in the present moment, I know this is a wonderful moment!" ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

I feel it is an honor to treat each person that walks through my door.  The opportunity to give back to my community, to help others feel better and live with less pain and/or stress, to offer a place of peace and solace in a hectic world, is a gift I do not take for granted.

I feel it is an honor to treat each person that walks through my door.  The opportunity to give back to my community, to help others feel better and live with less pain and/or stress, to offer a place of peace and solace in a hectic world, is a gift I do not take for granted.


I grew up in the Willamette Valley and have traveled to various places in the world; where I have seen love and kindness as well as pain and suffering everywhere I have been.  Bringing a little bit of comfort and joy to the live's of my clients in the place I love, is enriching and fulfilling.

My professional life has taken me to many different places/jobs, but as a licensed massage therapist, I finally feel at home.

During a visit with me, you can expect my complete and professional attention, a compassionate ear and an attention to detail.  I tailor each massage to the individual and truly try to make each session about you.  Some folks prefer to chat during a massage, others like to be left to their own thoughts and meditations.  I am perfectly content either way and will take your lead.

My style uses a combination of Swedish, Deep tissue and Shiatsu techniques to help promote relaxation and to relieve pain.  I am always looking for new techniques and style to learn to better myself and your experience.

After working for Mt. Angel Chiropractic for over two years, I spread my wings and began my own business in 2017.  I am fortunate to still be providing the same great service, in the same great location - just under my own name as Blue Heron Massage Therapy.

Why Blue Heron - you might ask?  Well, I am a passionate bird lover - an amateur birder - and the heron is my favorite bird.  I have always found solace and peace in watching them.  I hope to bring their steadfast and calm approach to my own life and business.

My husband and family are rooted in the area, and I look forward to serving our community with kindness and professionalism for years to come!

Thank you for your business!

Shana is absolutely incredible and irreplaceable on my journey to better health and quality of life. Yes, I will state unequivocally and unabashedly that I cannot live without her and her gift of healing! Indeed, I suffer with chronic pain from scoliosis which require chiropractic adjustments and tweaks on a regular basis just to keep all things aligned and help alleviate some of the pain. But nothing helps dealing with the residual pain from sore, tired muscles than a hour and a half session on Shana's table. She is very adept at finding knots in my back, shoulders and neck I had no idea existed until she uncovered them while addressing the issues I sought attention for in the first place. Shana is a very intuitive and caring healer and I can trust her to always find those pesky, stubborn knots and drive them away in her own uniquely loving and nurturing way.
