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.

The environment was quiet and serene, and the massage was perfectly targeted on the areas I specified in my pre-appointment assessment. This was my first visit, and I undoubtedly plan to return ASAP. Highly recommended!!

I relax just pulling up to the building. I know Shanta will always find some hidden knots and kinks and work them OUT.

I returned to Shanta over the last few years for body work. Her work has amazing impact on relaxing my muscles and repercussions of stress in my life. Highly recommend.

From her skill to intuition, Shanta excels. Even the music playing in the background is just right. I can’t recommend Shanta enough. I’m really grateful for my experiences with her and encourage anyone who is considering a massage with her to give it a try.

Massage was very relaxing it has been a long time trying to get an appointment with Shanta, but it was well worth the wait I will work with her again.

Shanta has patiently learned the quirks of my body and addresses them each time with care and skill. She has a deep understanding of common body problems and a .willingness to listen to the differences each person presents. She's kind and fun
