Greetings! I am Janine, a Licensed Massage Therapist from New York City. Along with my NY license, I’ve obtained my license in the beautiful state of Washington, and now in amazing Oregon!
I am here to fulfill my desire to be a healer and therapist. After 16 years working as an Executive Assistant in the corporate world of Wall Street, I jumped ship, and went to school for massage therapy at The Swedish Institute in Manhattan. What an eye opening experience, the only thing I could do was to kick myself for not doing it sooner! When I visited Seattle in Dec ’05, I felt the connection-even in the mist! What an indescribable feeling that Seattle was my destination. In 2007, I moved to Seattle for the Quality of Life. The PNW is now my home.
Now, I am here in Portland, what an “I am Home” feeling. It’s been years since I found that solid community vibe, like I had in New York. My heart and my soul feel alive and yearning to grow even more. I am looking to transfer and enhance the Quality of Life living through my touch and ever growing knowledge in Herbalism and self care. I have worked in many areas and programs and it continues to inspire me. Through my experiences, my expertise ranges from traditional deep tissue therapy to the most popular and effective massage service, Ashiatsu Deepfeet Bar Therapy® a barefoot massage technique in which the therapist utilizes gravity and an overhead bar system for support while delivering a deep therapeutic massage without intense pain or discomfort to the client. Each individual receives a unique blend of modalities such as Deep Tissue, Lomi Lomi, Myofascial Release, as well as integrating modalities of Eastern methods such as Shiatsu and Thai Massage.
I am an outgoing and down to earth ‘gal and work with each client individually, creating a sense of comfort and relaxation while continuing to follow through with aiding your aches and discomforts. I look forward to meeting and working with you!
