"Hurts so good & helps so much"

​If you're looking for the kind of massage that "hurts so good" (with a solid dose of love) then you have come to the right place. I specialize in deep, intensive work that helps release adhesions or "knots", muscle tension, trigger points, and chronic aches and pains. Athletes, chronic pain sufferers, and/or people who like deep work make up a majority of my clients.

​If you're looking for the kind of massage that "hurts so good" (with a solid dose of love) then you have come to the right place. I specialize in deep, intensive work that helps release adhesions or "knots", muscle tension, trigger points, and chronic aches and pains. Athletes, chronic pain sufferers, and/or people who like deep work make up a majority of my clients.

I also offer therapeutic, nurturing massage for times when "digging in there" is not called for, such as a sensitivity to deep work, excessive stress, trauma, or depression. ​

​​My bodywork is therapeutic, medically-oriented and highly effective. I approach each session with an intention to hone in on the source of the concern and do all that I can to help it.

My clients experience deep rejuvenation, long-lasting effects, and pain/injury cessation. We will work together as a team to affect change in your body and being.

The tools and techniques of Thai massage allow me to affect therapeutic and long-lasting change for my clients with great efficiency (thanks to feet, knees, elbows, and gravity). My ultimate goal is to help heal to the best of my ability: to move a client from ill health to wellness, injury to recovery, pain-filled to pain-free, as quickly as possible.

I have been studying and practicing traditional Thai massage since 2008. A solo trip to SE Asia in 2001 brought me to Thailand for 2 glorious months where I experienced Thai massage for the first time. The seed was planted. When I moved to Portland I found my teacher Nephyr Jacobsen at The Naga Center and immersed myself in her teachings. I am grateful for the knowledge and skills she has passed on.

If you are looking for great bodywork that gets results and is focused on your individual needs then let's work together. I'm looking forward to it.​

Traditional Thai Bodywork Specialist

I began studying Thai massage in 2008 in NYC and continued intensive study when I moved to Portland in 2010. It was here that I found my teacher Nephyr Jacobsen of The Naga Center and have continued my studies of traditional Thai medicine and bodywork with her. I have taken more than 500 hours of Thai bodywork courses covering topics including, but not limited to, medical theory for bodyworkers, treatment for specific ailments and conditions, element theory, abdominal massage, pre-natal, post-partum, injury-specific, deep Thai, scarf work, cupping, scraping, herb-making, use of balms/liniments/hot herbal compresses, and much more. I feel fortunate to have so many tools at my disposal to be able to therapeutically treat clients with pain, injury, ailments, and/or all manners of concerns.
