Owners Heather Harris and Corey Kolln believe in their practice’s powerful benefits, so much so that they encourage regular visits from customers through a membership program that offers deep discounts. Amid their office’s tranquil environment, they administer signature massages that focus on each client's specific problem areas, incorporating hot stones, aromatherapy, and steamed towels for maximum tension and stress relief. As an extra defense against muscle soreness, they can place herbal analgesic patches on muscles, helping to ease pain for up to two days while increasing the likelihood that family members will ask if you've been rolling around in the herb garden again.

Marina Volod has been a clinical aesthetician for more than 20 years. During that time, she’s designed her own facial treatments, developed an acne-maintenance program, and started Avitalin, a company that sells its own line of natural skincare products.

Heidi Niewendorp returned from her first-ever massage feeling invigorated, and not only because of the relaxing strokes and customized pressure. It also inspired her to choose a new career path?she realized she wanted to be on the other end of the table helping people as she had been helped. So she attended school, earned her massage therapist's license, and in 2008 began her career. Heidi specializes in firm pressure, performing massages she calls deep-tissue relaxation, which possess both the deep reach that can ease muscle pain and the comforting strokes that can diminish stress. But Heidi is versatile, and she's happy to change up her style?a lighter Swedish massage for general relaxation, perhaps, or a focused pregnancy massage for expecting mothers sore from building geodesic dome-cribs. For even deeper serenity, Heidi also offers hot-stone massage and aromatherapy add-ons.
When Heidi Niewendorp got her first massage, it triggered something much deeper than she expected?a love of massage therapy. Since then, her passion for her work has only solidified, fitting right in with Massage by Heidi and its attentive staff who always aim to help clients look and feel more confident.

Named for the endless view overlooking the wooded Mountain Park area of West Lake Oswego, Vista Massage and Wellness lets clients gaze at sweeping vista as massage therapists' hands sweep over their backs.
