A graduate from East West College of the Healing Arts in Portland Oregon, My massage practice began in 2008. Over the years I have developed a therapeutic, medium-deep pressure massage that incorporates a variety of modalities. Techniques are drawn from Relaxing Swedish, Deep Tissue, Passive stretching, Craniosacral, Visceral Manipulation, Reiki, and Spa Bodywork therapies. Massage is a great way to calm the mind and relax the body. The benefits of massage are an important part of our personal wellness care to take a pause from our busy lives to reduce stress and anxieties and help relieve any aches and pains of the body.
More about Betsy: I was born and raised in Wyoming, then after couple years at a small liberal arts college in Missouri, I followed my sister to Oregon in 1999 to finish college in the big city and of course I loved it here. When I moved to Portland I worked in the recycling industry and finished my undergraduate degree in Community Development at Portland State University. A few years later I started massage school and feel fortunate to have found a career that I really enjoy. When I am not doing bodywork or taking continuing eduction classes, I am out in nature, picking up trash with SOLV, enjoying time with family and friends, Crossfit, Hollywood Farmers Market, planning my next adventure, or playing with my kitties.
