Car Accidents treated for FREE – Anybody in Oregon who has been in an accident and has auto insurance is entitled to $15,000 in medical care under the Personal Injury Protection(PIP) Law. You can use this for massage, chiropractic, acupuncture, physical therapy and more and pay nothing out of pocket. Massage after an accident will help you recover faster and ensure your pain doesn’t become permanent.

Deep Tissue Massage – This style of bodywork means working with deep layers of tissue, where pain often originates, not just deep pressure. Deep tissue massage accesses these layers in order to affect long-term relief of chronic tension and pain, increase range of motion, facilitate injury rehabilitation, and counteract the effects of repetitive motion strain.

Medical Massage – We provide outcome-based medical massage which is specific treatment protocols to address certain conditions such as Plantar Fasciitis, Carpal Tunnel, Sciatica, Rotator Cuff Injuries, Fibromyalgia, Headaches, Restless Leg Syndrome, TMJ, Thoracic Outlet, Tennis and Golfer’s Elbow, Piriformis Syndrome, Whiplash, Scoliosis, discomfort from Cancer treatment, and more.

Trigger Point Therapy – A trigger point is a hyperirritable contraction knot in muscle that causes chronic and local referred pain, muscle spasm and cramps, muscle weakness and decreased range of motion. Trigger Point therapy is used to relieve such discomfort and is highly effective in healing conditions such as tension headaches, carpal tunnel, sciatica and more.

Sports Massage – This modality uses a variety of techniques including postural and gait analysis, deep tissue, trigger point, myofascial release, Swedish massage, and stretching. Sports massages can cut your recovery time in half. It also improves performance, prevents injury, and provides relief to sore and overloaded muscles.

Swedish Relaxation – Enjoy a deeply relaxing full-body massage with long, slow strokes that releases stress, relieves muscle tension, stimulates circulation, and removes toxins. Guided by your body’s needs, extra attention is always given to your most tense areas.

Prenatal Massage – For the expectant mother, prenatal massage eases the aches and pains associated with pregnancy and helps prepare the body for birth. Each session is tailored to the needs of each woman and every precaution is taken to ensure the comfort and safety of mother and baby.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Cancer Massage – Used to reduce edema and swelling, this gentle and non-invasive technique is one of the most effective treatments for fluid retention caused by surgery, damaged or removed lymph nodes, diabetes and pregnancy. It is also a powerful boost to your immune system and an effective tool for detoxification.

Myofascial Release – Fascia is a form of connective tissue that surrounds every muscle, every bundle of muscle, every joint, and organ. Myofascial Release treats restrictions in fascia, which is often a factor in muscle tension, decreased range of motion, chronic pain, and injuries. This modality is used in conjunction with other treatments such as Deep Tissue and Trigger Point, in order to affect long-lasting results.

Cupping – Cupping is a treatment in which plastic suction cups are applied to certain areas of the body to help decrease pain and inflammation, increase range of motion, decrease muscle tension, increase circulation, draw out toxins, and loosen myofascial adhesions.

I use a manual-pump system of cupping, not fire cupping, and apply the cups for 5-10 minutes after I’ve massaged an area. The manual pump version of cupping allows me to easily adjust the intensity of the suction according to client preference as well as what is needed by that area of the body. Some redness can occur in the area of treatment, which is completely normal and not painful, and usually lasts 3-5 days.

Kinesiology Taping – This is a therapeutic technique for injury recovery and rehabilitation in which fabric tape is applied to areas of pain and injury. Kinesiology taping helps to support and stabilize joints, prolongs the benefits of massage to tight or injured muscles, and can also aid in the reduction of swelling. I use kinesiology taping in conjunction with the treatment-focused modalities of Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, and Myofascial Release. I apply the tape at the end of the massage session. The tape usually lasts 3-4 days, can get wet, and as many athletes can attest to, is an extremely helpful injury treatment.

Massage for Runners – I have been working with individual runners as well as team members from Foot Traffic University for over 10 years. I have developed what I call “The Runner’s Tune-up,” which is massage that focuses on the lower body issues that tend to occur in runners. When done on a regular basis, this is powerful and effective maintenance to help prevent as well as treat common injuries in casual runners, marathon runners, and ultra runners.

These include but are not limited to Achilles pain or tendonitis; tight calves and calf cramps; ITB Syndrome; Runner’s Knee; tight or strained hamstrings, glutes, hip flexors, and quads; shin splints, Plantar Fasciitis, and even low back tension.

The Runner’s Tune-up includes techniques such as Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point, Active Release, and stretching, with cupping and/or kinesiology taping if needed.
