I often refer to Fascia as “the system that science forgot”.  It is gaining in respect and popularity at a rapid pace these days but a true understanding of it is a ways off.  Understanding and working with this system has changed my life and it can change yours to.

I discovered bodywork on the other side of a severe shoulder injury.  Years of deep tissue, muscle relaxers and painkillers kept my pain at bay but I did not find true relief until I found myofascial release.  After this, I dedicated myself to its practice. After an education at Portlands own esteemed East-West College of the Healing Arts, much rigorous self study, and four years working in the trade Nadia and I opened Golden Ratio Healing Arts where we could hone our craft.


The fascial system can be simply simply understood as the “skin” around and through the muscles.  By treating this “skin” as opposed to just the muscle itself we create more room for the muscle to move and breath, more space for circulation and nervous activity to feed and activate the muscle and due to fascias all-connected nature we affect the entire body even if we treat only a small area.

The work itself is very slow and often very intense but the results are immediately palpable, one session building upon the next to restore your body and posture to the organic, harmonious neutral you had before so many years of gravity and the weight of the world lay upon your shoulders.


We will work to increase ease of motion and being and body awareness, decrease or even eliminate pain and either hasten the recovery of an injury, boost athletic performance, or simply make your body a happier, healthier place to be.

You’re life in balance.
