Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
I use a totally organic, edible beeswax-based massage cream that is made locally here in Oregon.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
I love the sensation of feeling the muscles give and begin to completely relax and melt under my finger tips. It is the moment when the muscles begin to "melt" that I know the truly deep and effective work can begin.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
People should try to look like the best version of themselves, as opposed to trying to look like an ideal.
When Chelsea Kaldahl?the brains and nimble fingers behind Dasra Mantra?decided to start a career as a massage therapist, she didn't limit herself to a single modality, knowing that different clients would require different techniques. Her approach to learning now pays dividends in her work, as her expertise ranges from the flowing strokes of Swedish massage to the rhythmic thumbing and applied yoga postures of Thai massage. She uses therapeutic-grade essential oils during aromatherapy massages, which can assist in breathing, promote better moods, and increase circulation faster than a magazine giving away a spaceship with each new subscription. She also performs Reiki, during which she uses her hands in an effort to unlock the body's innate healing abilities.

A member of the Pain Society of Oregon, licensed massage therapist Bruce Schaefer (OBMT certification #15180) subdues muscle pain through muscle-melting massages. Bruce begins by assessing the causes of each client's pain to determine if it derives from poor posture, poor badminton form, or belly flopping into a frozen pool. After choosing the Swedish or deep-tissue modality, guests can ponder the cosmos as the professional massage therapist evaporates gallons of stress held in the corporeal structure. Massage therapy can help mitigate the severity of several afflictions, such as neck pain, insomnia, tennis elbow, Aspartame face, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
