Customized Therapeutic Massage to Relax Body and Mind

 I was intuitively drawn to the healing arts from a young age.  Empathetic and with a desire to nurture, I wanted to help people improve the way their bodies functioned on a physical, emotional, and energetic level.   I first discovered herbalism and was amazed at the abundance of plant medicine that grows literally at our feet.  I have continued studying herbalism with an array of teachers for the past 10 years.  Massage seemed to be a natural way to incorporate my love of plants and m...

 I was intuitively drawn to the healing arts from a young age.  Empathetic and with a desire to nurture, I wanted to help people improve the way their bodies functioned on a physical, emotional, and energetic level.   I first discovered herbalism and was amazed at the abundance of plant medicine that grows literally at our feet.  I have continued studying herbalism with an array of teachers for the past 10 years.  Massage seemed to be a natural way to incorporate my love of plants and my fascination with the human body to create a holistic healing experience. I became a licensed massage therapist in 2009 after graduating from Portland’s East West College.  Specializing in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Table Thai (yoga-like stretching), Pregnancy Massage, Hot Stones, Aromatherapy, Hydrotherapy, and Reiki.
  
Nourishing the body with massage and herbs restores balance and allows the body to heal itself naturally.  I enjoy learning new techniques and modalities and am honored to be able to share my knowledge with you on your healing journey.
When I'm not massaging, I love hiking and exploring our lovely pacific northwest forests, bike riding, and playing guitar.

Colleen was great. She customized the massage to fit my needs exactly. She spent a lot of time listening to my concerns before starting, and really helped me deal with some serious knots.

She is a sweet gentle and kind person with the knowledge of Thai massage. Her techniques is gentle, knows the sensitivities where and how to stretch, push, and pull my limbs and muscles.

I had a wonderful massage with Colleen. I felt lighter and more relaxed afterwards and she used the perfect level of pressure. She’s very thoughtful and encouraged me to let her know what I needed. I especially liked the small touches, like the warm towel behind my neck. I would definitely come back!

The massage was excellent as always. Space a little industrial, but on reflection kind of nice/intimate.
