Hi. I’m Annamieka Davidson, LMT, and Nourish Integrative Massage is my private practice. ******Please note: I will be out of the office 8/24-9/4 2014. I look forward to connecting with you after I return! *******
Are you ready to feel better?
Check in with your neck and shoulders. Tuck your chin back a little bit to take the weight off your neck. Feel your spine supporting you, and follow the length of it down to your seat. Feel your feet on the ground. Wiggle your toes. Take a deep breath in, and as you exhale, let go of any tension you may have noticed during this quick scan of your body.
Is there any tension that remains? Or pain?
Bring that tension in here and leave it on the table. Massage is effective at unwinding the source of that tension and pain. To put it simply: after a massage, you will feel better. Much better, in fact, you might stand a little taller, your skin will glow, and your body will thank you. It is absolutely beautiful to witness this transformation.
I make your massage all about you. If you have pain, we will address it. If you’ve been injured, we will develop an effective treatment plan that supports your healing process. If you are looking for restoration, relaxation, and an increased sense of well-being, I’m your gal. I take my role as a healer seriously and I hold a strong and supportive space for you as a client. I will become your advocate and you can count on me to be an enthusiastic and nurturing part of your health care team.
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 in Portland and it is my delight to provide massage and bodywork to support you in your transformative healing process.
Plan ahead! Schedule in advance for best choice in appointment times. It is common for me to be fully booked several weeks in advance. In order to provide the best quality, I see a maximum of 4 clients each work day. If you would like to be added to my cancellation list in case an appointment becomes available sooner, please send me an email. Thank you for choosing me to be your massage therapy practitioner and supporting high-quality independent bodywork.
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.

- 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 painting studio. It is 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. During certain times of day (about 11am-2pm in the winter) the massage table will be bathed in sunlight. 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.
