Belinda | Massage Therapist
Hi my name is Belinda and I’ve been a massage therapist since 2017. I started out working at a spa and helped me learn how to work with Himalaya hot stones, prenatal and aroma therapy. I then moved to a chiropractor and focused more on treatment. I learned all the basics in school such as Swedish, deep tissue, tripper points and stretching.
My goal is to learn more treatment work and open a path to the people who have not experienced massage and its benefits.

Elisa | Massage Therapist
Hi! I’m Elisa. I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself, the style of massage I give, and help you decide if we are a good fit to work together.
About me: I am enthusiastic about the outdoors and I love to travel! Backpacking into remote locations, and immersing myself in different cultures, feeds my soul. My favorite hair style is ocean soaked hair that’s been blown dry by a warm breeze, as depicted in the above photo.
Experience: I have been a licensed massage therapist for 20 years. I graduated from the East West College of the healing arts in 2000.
The first 2 years of my career I worked for a high end spa, which simply means expensive, that focused on hot oil Ayurvedic style massage and body treatments.
I fell in love with the feeling of the hot oil and still use it on my clients today. From there I moved on to a foot spa that specialized in foot reflexology.
After committing to feet for a couple years I was recruited by a chiropractor. It’s amazing where a good foot massage will take you. I spent 2 years working with him, which is were I found my true inspiration: being a part of a treatment plan and working with clients who were results orientated.
During my 6 years of working for other people I also built a steady outcall/in home clientele.
In 2006 I was presented with an opportunity to take a working holiday in the Caribbean where I massaged in a cabana on the beach. After a season of debauchery on St. Thomas, followed by a 5 week backpacking trip through Central America, I returned to Oregon.
In 2007 I opened my private practice; with the help and support of my preexisting outcall clientele.
In the spring of 2012 I was referred to the owner of the Portland Timbers Major League Soccer team. After one massage he offered me the lead LMT position for the Timbers and I’ve been with them up until COVID.
Style: my style of massage is a medley of all the modalities I’ve learned in school as well as the extensive continuing education I’ve taken over the last 20 years. The main modalities I used are deep tissue and sports massage, myofascial release, post isometric relaxation, and Gua sha, but I will also pull from my vast tool box of skills to customize your massage to suit your bio-individual needs. You tell me what you want, your body tells me what it needs, and I blend the two to you help achieve your desired results.
Working together: I am VERY much a result orientated LMT and I am looking to work with clients who are also results orientated. What does result orientated massage mean?
- You have a specific goal in mind and are looking for a desired result.
- You are able to breathe through your discomfort, as well as advocate for yourself, to reach your desired results.
- You are willing to WORK with me to get your desired results. Examples: the use of agonist/antagonist muscle work, post isometric relaxation, pin and stretch (passive and active) range of motion, and incorporated breath work.
- You can let go of the concept of a full body massage in order to prioritize reaching your desired results.
- You are open to, and committed to, doing the homework suggested by me that will progress your goals and sustain your results.
If the 5 points listed above resonate with you we are a good fit and I look forward to working together.
