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.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Fitness services

by Katherina on Jul 19
Shanta is frickin awesome. She knows her stuff inside and out and switches fluidly from modality to modality. I've been in to see her broken so many times in so many different ways (knee, shoulder, back, hamstrings, stressed) and she has fixed me every time.

Wonderful pressure, ambiance and attention to correcting my back pain.

Shanta seemed very knowledgeable and used some techniques that I had not before experienced. She was friendly but not too chatty; I appreciate that!
