Decrease pain and tension to increase mobility and strength.
Tips are inclusive in prices.
I used to raise millions of dollars for nonprofits, now I make you feel like a million bucks.
WHAT I DO: I help individuals decrease pain and tension to increase mobility and strength.
WHO I WORK WITH: Folks who have received great benefit from Caring Portland Massage include postal carriers, hair stylists, factory workers, lawyers, administrative staff, librarians, counselors, social workers, musicians, retail clerks, bartenders, mechanics, mountain climbers, runners, bodybuilders, and many others. My practice is body-positive, gender affirming, and welcomes Black, Indigenous and People of Color. My history includes training in power, privilege and inequity, trauma sensitivity, Safe Zone for LGBTQIAts, alternative sexualities, and anti-racism.
WHY IT WORKS: However you use your body, massage is proven to improve mood, reduce anxiety and depression, boost range of motion, & regulate aches and pain.
WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT: I provide mood boosting, pain reducing, and restorative massage to folks using health insurance (PacificSource, Regence BCBS, Kaiser Added Choice / First Choice, & Providence accepted), MVA claims, worker’s comp claims, HSA/FSA, and those looking for general cash-pay treatments.

Black Lives Matter! I continue to check and evaluate my biases, to recognize and call out the racist paradigm I was born into and continue to live in, and affirm the reality that racism has existed as a systemic form of resource control and abuse that benefits the few over the many; a system which benefits white people over all others. To this end, I continue to vote, volunteer, and when possible donate. I participate in Awakenings Wellness Center’s anti-racist study group where we study individually and come together to reflect as a group on the reality of racism. I gathered a few resources in this linktree (which includes places to contribute your voice, your dollars, your time, as well as other linktrees and documents listing resources and educational material). Multnomah County Library has audio & electronic books available such as White Fragility, How to be an Anti Racist, Me & White Supremacy, So You Want to Talk About Race, White Awake, Stamped, The Invention of the White Race, and many others. My personal goal is to educate, be humble, stay awake, be kind, be an accomplice.
