It is never too late to be what you might have been

I am on my way to becoming an expert at massage….it is said that to be an expert you need to practice something for 10,000 hours…I have well over 6,000 hours and counting.  I have spent the majority of the past 5 years working with chiropractors, treating many different kinds of injury, pain, strain and dis-ease of the body. I am know by the people I work with and treat to be especially skilled in head/neck/shoulder region and also the hip/glut/low back, tho it is all connected as we know!

I am on my way to becoming an expert at massage….it is said that to be an expert you need to practice something for 10,000 hours…I have well over 6,000 hours and counting.  I have spent the majority of the past 5 years working with chiropractors, treating many different kinds of injury, pain, strain and dis-ease of the body. I am know by the people I work with and treat to be especially skilled in head/neck/shoulder region and also the hip/glut/low back, tho it is all connected as we know!

I successfully treat many pain complaints including:TMJ(D), Rotater Cuff, Headaches, Back Pain, SI Pain and more.

In my practice I strive to work with my clients in a therapeutic yet relaxing manner.  For me this means that the treatment is effective in meeting personal health goals with deeper and sometimes intense work balanced with calming strokes that allow the body to receive and integrate the benefits of massage.  I also want to ensure that you receive the most benefit and pain relief in our sessions so my work can often be very intense and produces great relief in our first session. Every massage session is unique and dynamic because we are all individuals who continually change and grow every day.

I love being a licensed massage therapist in Portland Oregon. Originally from Oregon I spent many years traveling before I returned home to follow my dream.  I became a massage therapist simply because I want to help others.  When I was a child I would massage my family. It made me feel good to give my Nana a massage and see the relief it brought her.  In life I feel joy when I meet someone who is glowing with positive, healthy energy.  Sometimes we need a little help to get to or return to this place of balance, whether chronic stress, fatigue or other health issues are the cause.  This is where I come in. My work and specialized massage therapy techniques can assist in bringing balance back to you, your body and your life.

I graduated from East West College of the Healing Arts in 2011 here in Portland, OR. I specialized in Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Intra-Oral work for TMJ and Trigger Point  Therapy.  I also use Myofascial techniques and work in an organic manner interpreting what your body is telling me.

Elizabeth is an incredible body worker. Every session I've had I leave amazed at her patience and ability to hone in on the spots that need the most work. Strongly recommend to anyone needing deep massage!

Great experience. I appreciated that she could work me in while my regular massage therapist is out of town.

Violins, accordians and the magic hands of E-O. Truly a genius at what she does.

Great technical skill, as well as intuition!

I like the way my muscles feel 2 days after the massage. It was just what I was expecting from a deep tissue massage
