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.
For more than 10 years, Christina Baird has been customizing massage experiences for her clients in her cozy, private treatment rooms. With deep-tissue, trigger-point, and myofascial-release therapies in her arsenal, she focuses on providing benefits that include decreased anxiety, increased energy, reduced aches, and a better quality of sleep.
At Healing Works, LLC, licensed massage therapist Kristi Reese wages the most serene war imaginable on chronic pain and soreness. Reese is an expert when it comes to loosening tight and tense muscles, but her skills extend far beyond the realm of massage therapy. She can also boost overall wellness with everything from traditional reiki to natural herbs.

Boasting a two-year medical license in massage therapy and experience opening wellness centers overseas, licensed therapist Zakk Newell draws from a large arsenal of modalities, ranging from Swedish to lipomassage, to address each client’s particular need. He could soothe hard-to-reach aches with deep-tissue massage, ease chronic headaches with migraine treatment, or induce healing with reflexology, a form of massage that uses the feet to access different parts of the body. Zakk specializes in workman's compensation and auto injury claims, a rare commodity in Eugene.
The muscle menders at Massage Therapy Eugene are capable of lowering high blood pressure, relieving stress, and aiding recovery from an injury—all with a simple touch. Their therapeutic massages help the body achieve well-being by jump-starting its own healing processes. By kneading muscles and ligaments, they increase blood circulation, which in turn decreases inflammation, improves range of motion, and even relieves pain.
Such healing prowess is emblematic of the larger, multi-pronged approach to health that Massage Therapy Eugene is part of. A facet of Evans Chiropractic Group, the clinic benefits from the leadership and holistic outlook of Dr. Jerry Evans himself. The massage therapists often work with him and other chiropractors to customize their sessions, focusing pressure on a specific area of concern or helping clients see that a clothes dryer is a bad place to sleep. And Dr. Evans rounds out his health haven by giving clients access to spa-like amenities: a full-service private gym, LED facial rejuvenation, and even spray tanning.
