After spending four years in engineering school I began to feel unfulfilled with my career choice and decided it was time to shift gears, pursuing an interest in health and fitness. I spent two years studying exercise science at Western Michigan University and then went on to get my bodywork diploma from The New School for Massage in Chicago. Although a background in engineering seems completely unrelated, it helped lay the foundation for me to see the body as a complex system of biological levers and pulleys that can be manipulated to bring the body into alignment.

My style of work can be best described as a fusion of deep tissue, Thai, and sports massage. I begin by using several techniques such as neuromuscular & trigger point therapy with the intention of releasing any present muscle tension. Once the tension has been relieved, I then follow up with sports massage and Thai stretches to help restore the affected area back into alignment.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Susan on May 22
I've had many massages, but the massage I receive from Rob Harrold (this was my third, and I'm scheduling another) is the best. He literally takes away my pain. I could barely stand straight when I walked into his studio, back twinging, knees and hips aching, and I left upright and pain free, which continues for weeks after each massage. I had left knee replacement last August, a left mastectomy and reconstruction 12 years ago, right shoulder surgery, foot surgery, psoriatic arthritis and osteo arthritis, a C Section, among other issures, and he takes away my pain. He uses Thai, Swedish and Shiatsu techniques, among others, I'm sure, but it's not just his knowledge of techniques that makes him a healer, it's his care and intuition. He seems to listen to the body, responding intuitively to what it needs to let go of tension, to stop holding pain. I live south of Portland, but after my first massage with Rob, I told him it was a massage I will drive to receive. Rob is courteous, thoughtful, quiet and a gifted masseuse. I recommend him heartily, with no reservation. His is a massage worth driving to experience. Susan McKee Reese

Excellent massage. I will be referring Rob to anyone who asks and even those who don't. I haven't been pain free for years, this was a blessing finding Rob. Thank you!

Rob has an innate ability to find the tension areas, and is always learning new techniques to improve his skill. He is a pro at shoulders/back, and I always feel better after my appointment. It took me a long time to find someone this good.

Rob is an amazing, knowledgeable massage therapist. He found the root of my problem which I thought was my hip but turned out to be my back. I love the way he incorporates stretching within the massage. I left my massage with Rob pain free!! Thank you Rob!!!

Great massage from a truly great guy. Very professional. Very effective. Rob listened to my requests about pressure and immediately adjusted. He's a good person that seems to care a lot about his clients. I've been before and will go back.

Rob was really friendly and welcoming. He did a wonderful job at working out some knots and tension that had been bothering me for some time. I'd definitely recommend his services and will be sure to work with him again.

Rob was very good! Strong hands and pressure was perfect. Studio is quite comfortable and music was perfect! The whole experience was an A+ I can't wait for my next appointment.
