Gabriel H. LMT#25504
CranioSacral Therapy & Structural Integration
I love the power of deep tissue massage to release old adhesions and restore muscles to their optimal condition. I also get geeky over anatomy, functional movement, and visceral bodywork. As a result, I continue to study and specialize in Structural Integration and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy. The capacity to transform ourselves is remarkable. We all have within us the vital mechanisms to achieve abundant health, balance, and serenity. Healing from physical, emotional, or psychological trauma can be intense work that requires of us no small amount of patience, determination, and courage. Knowing how vital this work is from my own experience, I am honored and humbled by the trust and insights my clients offer me as I accompany them on their path of self-love and optimization.
Outside of the massage studio, I enjoy playing and teaching music, picnicking on mountain peaks, and working on inversions at my yoga studio.

Maren U. LMT #22380
Health is a dynamic process. An ever-evolving system requiring a constant ebb and flow to homeostasis, or balance. When one aspect of ourselves shifts, the whole pattern that is "us" shifts in response. I am a bodyworker and movement instructor, primarily focused on the structural aspects of physical health, but it is through the holistic lens that I work.
Raised in a suburb of Portland, Oregon, I returned to the area in 2016 after an 11-year adventure in NYC. It was there that I attended the Swedish Institute to become a massage therapist in 2014 and focused my studies on Myofascial release, Shiatsu, and Swedish Massage. The Bhakti Yoga Movement Center in Portland is where I received my 300-hour yoga teacher training, and I am currently involved in a Franklin Method (a movement technique using dynamic imagery and structural education) teacher training program.
I am grateful for my teachers, colleagues, and clients that continue to provide valuable lessons of healing and resilience and for which I continue to learn.
