Relax, find pain and stress relief; release muscle tightness and pressure on nerves, tendons and joints; free yourself from the tension patterns that cause pain; increase your self-awareness to take charge of your body and your life: welcome to Integration Massage. Here you will find ease and comfort in your body, empower yourself to heal through body-mind or mindfulness-based therapeutic treatments, and learn self-care tips to continue the benefits at home. Integration Massage is located in Portland’s Multnomah Village.
Whether you have pain from sports, recent or chronic injuries, a desk job or other work-related activities, adhesions or post-surgical complications–increase your ability to understand what causes your pain and how to prevent it so you can move with greater ease and comfort.
Some neurological conditions, numbness, trauma, fibromyalgia, “brain fog”, mild TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), Parkinson’s and other movement disorders can be treated with adaptive massage after a functional neurological assessment. I may use the gentle techniques of Ortho-Bionomy® to release reflexive guarding and compensation patterns that your body often develops after an injury to “splint” the injured tissue, and that may remain after an injury heals. I provide medical massage on referral from your doctor, for motor vehicle accidents, (MVA’s), and work-related accidents. I work with insurance plans, and Worker’s Comp, or can provide a receipt if you choose to get reimbursed by your insurance.
On these pages you will find both evidence-based therapeutic treatments as well as therapies that have not been as thoroughly researched. I am engaged in research to test the effectiveness of emerging trends. Some questions you may have:
- What is Ortho-Bionomy®?
- How can Integration Massage Benefit My Condition?
- What are Mind-Body Approaches?
- How is Neurological Massage different from standard massage?
- How can I Take Charge of My Own Healing?
