Shantastic Massage: Working Together to Make You Feel Better!

Shanta has been practicing massage in Portland for over 10 years. Having been a Nurse’s Aide, a Subrogation Specialist, and a Paralegal for personal injury attorneys, she has spent much of her work life surrounded by and processing other people’s pain.

Shanta has been practicing massage in Portland for over 10 years. Having been a Nurse’s Aide, a Subrogation Specialist, and a Paralegal for personal injury attorneys, she has spent much of her work life surrounded by and processing other people’s pain. During her first massage class, she realized she had found her life’s work. After 10 years as an LMT, she still feels that way. Shanta is passionate about sharing her work with others.


Her approach is exceptionally intuitive. She specializes in listening and personalizing treatment to address the wellness needs of each client.  By combining aspects of Eastern Massage modalities (Shiatsu, Acupressure and Traditional Thai Massage Stretches)  with Western Massage modalities ( Swedish, Deep Tissue, Cranial Sacral Therapy, myofascial release techniques and Biodynamic Massage) a Shantastic Massage is created that addresses her clients individual needs and problem areas.


In addition to training at the National Holistic Institute in Emeryville, CA and the Acupressure Institute in Berkeley, CA, she has received a BS in Criminal Justice from Northeastern University in Boston, MA. Shanta is currently studying CranioSacral Therapy with the Upledger Institute.

Shanta is by far the best and most intuitive massage therapist I've ever seen. I've been a regular for ten years and each time is a magical experience.

Best massage I’ve ever had!

Shanta gives a thorough wholistic massage while also focusing in on points we identified before the session. I have been her client for over a decade - she continues to learn new techniques and also retains what works best for me. Very professional, highly attentive to safety in these times, and also a good friend. I give her my highest recommendation.
