I have been practicing massage in the Portland community since 2008. Since the beginning of my practice, I have been inspired by and devoted to the traditions of Thai Massage. This tradition has created the frame for which I enter every session. It is my focused intention to meet each client with love, compassion, awareness and non-judgement. I continue to train extensively in techniques ranging from deep tissue work and trigger point therapy to myofascial techniques. I blend all of these influences into a style that is deep and rhythmic, using movement, stretching and breath to liberate joints and soft tissue from the pain and immobility of habits and injuries. I endeavor to blend my scientific understanding of the body puzzle with an artistic expression of energy and movement. Through this practice I have been honored to work with people experiencing a wide variety of challenges, from chronic pain to accident trauma. I enjoy supporting people through long journeys of deep healing, as well as those who find themselves in need of immediate help.

I'm continually appreciative of the way this therapy challenges our awareness and acceptance of ourselves. One so often seeks massage to deal with something uncomfortable: stress, pain, injury and anxiety. Together, client and therapist face the uncomfortable; an act which requires us to be honest and present with who we are in the present moment. The greatest work happens when the giver and receiver both honor their own individual practices of trust and communication, which together create a sacred space that allows for the uncomfortable things to arise and transform into profound experiences.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Valerie on Aug 13
Benjamin is a gifted massage therapist. Long held restrictions were released in my back from one session! I’ve been to a lot of body workers and massage therapists over the years and Benjamin’s work is in a class by itself.

Benjamin is a real treasure. Best deep bodywork I have experienced since traditional Rolfing, other Thai, Swedish, deep tissue, and more. HIGHLY recommend.

Benjamin is a gifted healer. The work he does on me lasts far longer than most massages. Besides keeping me going, I have learned so much from him. After many years with many different massage therapists, I am so pleased to have discovered Benjamin Harp.

I have been going to Benjamin for years because I have a physically demanding job. He is a thoughtful practitioner and the bodywork that he does helps to keep me balanced, relaxed and able to continue working. I've seen several Thai massage therapists here and he is the best in Portland.

Benjamin is truly a gifted healer. He is my 'oil can' as I age. He keeps me going, encourages me, teaches me, and deals with various physical issues. It helps me in all ways; physical, emotional, mental. Give him a try, and go more than once to really understand what he can do for you.
