Licensed Massage Therapist Antoinette Lopes sees massage as a way to remind the body, mind, and spirit to relax and let go of any anxieties. During a typical massage, she uses long flowing strokes and gradually moves deeper, depending on the individual's preference. She may also employ reiki techniques along the body's meridians to restore free flow of energy channels. When not untying tight muscular knots, Antoinette enjoys other hobbies such as painting, drawing, and dancing on the shoulders of over-stressed giants.
The skilled therapists at Massage On The Go are dedicated to healing aches and pains with customized, soothing services, reducing stress by drawing on modalities including deep tissue, myofascial release, and sport massage. Relief isn?t confined to their clinic?though the office is equipped with multiple treatment rooms and therapists, the team is ready to bring their services to client?s homes and offices. And lest the rest of the body become jealous, the staff also pampers clients with ion detox foot baths designed to release toxins from the whole body through the foot's pores.
The fitness instructors, massage therapists, and holistic well-being specialists at Beaverton Healing Center all have the same mission: to create a positive learning and healing space. To that end, services are geared toward balancing mind, body, and spirit, with offerings such as private and group yoga classes, chakra clearings, and pregnancy massages. The center's motto is "you deserve good things" and that policy is followed from top to bottom—even the floors are cleaned with special H2O steam mops that also coo lullabies to your ankles.
Hydration, health, and alternate living are the three philosophical pillars that guide Thirst PDX. Though it may seem simlpe, water is at the foundation of many of the treatments at the center. Ionic foot baths help coax toxins from the body, Kangen water helps clients hydrate sans impurities, and water workshops help educate clients on the best way remove or reduce chemicals from diets and household products. Infrared saunas and health coaching also provide wellness-boosting effects, especially once the feet are coached to walk away from pizza.
The team of experienced therapists at Rebound Massage Therapy and Sports Wellness treat all of their clients with the same care they would show to a professional athlete. They design each of their massages with the end result in mind: depending on their individual clients, they might rely on relaxing Swedish strokes, stretching kneads, or trigger-point techniques that train muscles to kick their bad habits.
After graduating from Anthem College’s massage-therapy program, When You Knead It owner Trish Olson immediately founded her travelling massage service to bring aid to sore muscles wherever they may be. With more than 15 years of experience, Olson and her staff bring years of knowledge to treat bodies suffering from stress or injury. When You Knead It uses a variety of massage techniques—including Swedish and deep-tissue massage—to relax muscles and revitalize bodies.
