Massage

Email Shaney

I have been a licensed massage therapist since 2000. I have been certified as a movement and breathing instructor (exercise and yoga) since 1995. Oh, and I have an undergraduate degree in community health education from Portland State University (B.S.). I am certain that I am fortunate to choose these career outlets so as to be held accountable to my own self care and discipline practices.

 
When my hands, arms and voice are not moving and guiding other bodies for 'work', I gratefully spend my time in any one of the following ways: boarding (surf, skate, snow), rolling on wheels (bicycle or motorcycle), climbing (outdoor/sport or indoor/bouldering), camping in my van, dancing, or napping. Many of these activities allow me to be accompanied by two of my best buds, Dylan and Dixie (my dog friends).
 
Whether you are raging in your own recreation or recovering from the long-standing postures or patterns that stem from you and your art or career, it is likely that some of the body's resources will be overused and in need of preparation or recovery assistance. It is an honor to share with you the techniques and tools that I have learned to trust as we support the body's inherent wisdom to heal, supplementing connective tissues, joint spaces, and vital potentiality.

Jess Evans studied Massage and Bodywork Therapy at East West College for the Healing Arts (2013) followed by the study of Zen and Quantum Shiatsu. Knowing the Body as the vital housing for our Consciousness and our Soul informs her life and her work both as a Bodyworker and as a Dancer/Movement Artist (BA in Dance 2008). Her work addresses the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of how we are engaging with our life, how that may be showing up in our bodies as pain and dis-ease, and how we can notice and inhabit this discomfort in order to heal and move in our lives with increased freedom. Myofascial, Structural, and Deep Tissue engagement with the soft tissue structures in addition to the multi-dimensional and centering arts of Zen and Quantum Shiatsu make up the majority of her bodywork practice. Her knowledge and study of dance and movement arts lends itself to feeling into the subtleties of her client’s bodies and offers insights into how her clients can animate their bodies in constructive and rehabilitating ways.
