When she isn't paddling a dragon boat down the Willamette River, licensed massage therapist Debra Oden helps her clients navigate the turbulent waters of stress, chronic pain, and injury toward relaxation. She customizes a fresh approach for every patient—drawing from more than 10 years of bodywork experience—whether visitors simply wish to relax or have recently injured themselves attempting to crab-walk up an escalator. To supplement her mastery of Swedish strokes and specialty styles such as pregnancy massage, she holds certifications in shiatsu, deep-tissue, and neuromuscular therapies. This leads to highly flexible wellness plans—guests might stop in for a one-time appointment or schedule recurring sessions that steadily unwind knots of tension.

Today, she's a master stylist, but before beauty school, Hali Owens focused on psychology while immersed in a criminal justice curriculum. Since shifting to her true passion, however, she's cultivated a service menu that ranges from bang trims to elaborate wedding updos topped with three-tier cakes. Despite all these choices, Owens advises guests not to get too overwhelmed: "Don’t worry about knowing exactly what you want," she says.

Customers are able to relax in Owens's chair, knowing they can depend on her 14 years' experience and expert eye to shape and color the perfect hairdo. Her specialties help clients feel their best, and to Owens, that's the best part of the job: "My favorite moment," she says, "is when my client looks in the mirror at the finished look and I can see their confidence rise!"
