Nourish yourself with massage! Se Habla Espanol!

Letter to my clients:
After five amazing years in private practice, I am taking a sabbatical. I really want to ensure that you are in good hands, so I put together a list of awesome, capable Portland massage therapists who practice a similar style of massage to my intuitive, deep tissue bodywork. I’ve received work from each of them and can vouch for their integrity and effectiveness. See the list below for names :o)  It has been such a joy to work with you all!


So, why the sabbatical?
I’ll be taking time off from massage to work as a full-time artist!
Have you seen my artist video?

So, why the sabbatical right now? 
The art career has been building for several years, but I’ve suddenly found myself with an incredible (and BIG) project. Thanks in part to a grant from the Regional Arts & Culture Council, I will be producing an online painting class. Over the next two months, l’ll be working with a filmmaker to create 12 instructional videos and then I will be writing all of the content to create this a 5-week-long, online painting e-course based upon the botany & painting retreats I have been teaching in Oregon. Now, anyone in the world will be able to “paint in the forest” with me, and we will be building a global community of painters who care about art, healing, ecology, and wellness. It’s like writing a book and filming a movie at the same time, so I need to clear my schedule to be able to do the work involved.


How can we stay in touch?
I would love to stay connected with you, so if you are moved to join my art email list, send me an email with the contact form in the sidebar and I’ll keep you in the loop.
You can also follow me on Instagram, and Facebook.
You can also come to my Portland shows! I would be so overjoyed to see you!
Here are some of the things coming up in art-career-land:

When will you be back?

At this point, I know I will be on sabbatical through August 2016. Let’s check back in near the end of Summer.


OK you guys – take care of yourselves, and keep in touch!

It has been SUCH an honor to be your therapist thus far. Thank you, thank you, thank you…

I trust you will find the support that you need in their capable hands!
all kindness,




I trained in massage therapy at the East West College of Healing Arts and I specialize in Myofascial Release, and Deep Tissue therapies. My style is nurturing and effective at addressing pain.  I develop anatomically specific treatment plans unique to your needs based upon your health history, palpation, and postural analysis. I’m a very big anatomy geek and I love to share my passion for health and healing.  I have a Bachelor’s Degree (BFA) in fine art and premedical sciences from the University of Oregon.  I’m a cancer survivor but I prefer to say “thriver.”  My fascination with human health has led me to study massage, apprentice in clinical western herbalism,  volunteer abroad with surgical teams, and dissect human cadavers.  I’m always learning.  I’ve worked in free clinics, hospitals, and social service agencies in Oregon, Mexico, and Guatemala.  I’m fluent in Spanish (and English).  I’m thrilled to have my own private practice here in Portland and it is my delight to provide massage and bodywork to support you in your transformative healing process.

Single session rates: Credit Cards Accepted.  Cash and Check too.

Medical Massage and Insurance Billing:

Medical massage  is a different service from wellness massage.  Medical massage is focused treatment addressing a known diagnosis, as determined and prescribed by your doctor.  As your medical massage therapist, I will coordinate care with your health care team to ensure we are working together to provide the best treatment for your injuries.  Medical massage includes extensive charting and assessment to track your care and implement thorough treatment plans.  I will bill your insurance directly so you can focus on getting well.  As of 2016 I am no longer accepting new clients who require me to bill private health insurance plans. I will continue to offer insurance billing for clients who require treatment following motor vehicle accidents.

  • Massage Therapy 97124 – $50/unit

Hours and Location:

  • Massage studio location: Located inside the historic Ford Building on SE 11th and Division St.    2505 SE 11th Ave, Suite 272 Portland OR 97202
  • Hours: Open by appointment.  See online scheduler for availability.
  • Parking: Visitor parking lot located on the South side of the Ford Building off of SE 11th Ave.  If you have an extra 5-10 minutes I recommend parking in beautiful  Ladd’s Addition amidst the giant old trees and rose gardens.  On-street parking is available in the neighborhoods near the Ford building to the North and East but please be aware of posted restrictions.
  • Please Note: There is construction on Division St. and the new MAX light rail line nearby.  The train tracks cross SE 11th and 12th near the building.  Avoid crossing the train tracks at peak traffic hours.
  • Inside the building, access the second floor via the stairs or elevator.  Studio 272 is located at the very west end of the building.  Visit the restroom on your way down the hall and then continue on down until you find my reception area at the very end of the hall.
  • It’s a unique space: This bright, airy massage studio is also my art studio. To learn more about my artist career, hop over to my other website, My studio is located in a vibrant mixed-use building and the train passes nearby.  On a sunny day the southwestern exposure provides a rare treat and bathes the treatment room in sunshine.  When rain pelts the windows I like to use my soothing moist heat packs and warm blankets and make things very cozy for you during your treatment.
