Kate knows everyone is different and dynamic, and therefore so is every massage.  There is no standard book of instructions for working with the body, and she believes in approaching every client with a fresh outlook and an open mind.  Kate combines Swedish, Deep Tissue, Thai, Craniosacral, and Chi Nei Tsang techniques to provide a relaxing and therapeutic massage. 

Having these tools under her belt, she can focus on working out adhesions, trigger points and fascial holding patterns, stretching and lengthening muscles, and improving range of motion, using light to deep pressure to accommodate any client’s needs. 

Kate also practices Craniosacral & Chi Nei Tsang. Craniosacral uses gentle pressure to free fascial restrictions, decompress cranial bones, and improve flow of cerebrospinal fluid.  Craniosacral is deeply relaxing and beneficial for all, but especially those suffering from headaches, whiplash, traumatic brain injury, and TMJ issues.  Chi Nei Tsang does something similar, but for your organs.  Using gentle pressure to free organs from fascial restrictions that prevent them from properly functioning, as well as physically adjusting and draining the organs, Chi Nei Tsang is an incredibly healing modality for anyone, especially for digestion issues and those seeking improved gut health.


From Dr. Russ:  I encountered Kate at a spa in NE Portland. After just a couple of sessions, I wanted to support her in the development of her practice, and to help her unleash her healing touch on the city of Portland. Kate is a soft presence with a supportive, nurturing touch and a grounded style that just makes you feel wonderful. Her great deep tissue work complements my approach, but she can also provide craniosacral and Chi Nei Tsang treatments for our patients who need them. This spectrum of skills helps round out our clinic's offerings. I love referring patients to Kate!
