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.

After a session with Coleen I woke up this morning feeling great. She has amazing technique, a great studio, and a healers touch. Best massage I have had since moving to Portland 9 years ago. I highly recommend her.

Colleen had a soothing touch. She's very connected and does a great job of checking in to ensure the proper amount of pressure without distraction. She uses her own artisan blends of oils- did you know she's also an herbalist? The space is beautiful and calmly lit with candles and relaxing music. I will definitely come again!

1st massage with Colleen. She was skilled, responsive, thorough. I would see her again.

I see Colleen on a regular basis and she has taken great care in working through my body's defenses with my back issues. She has relaxed muscle groups that were "memory" protecting and let's just say they aren't issues anymore, now I've gone back to my active lifestyle and play with confidence.
