Welcome Gabriel, Aimee, Katrina and Tracy
We’re very excited to welcome a few new faces (and hands) to the massage team! Feel free to call us at (503) 288 – 7668 for a recommendation, so we can connect you with the right practitioner to meet your needs.
Meet Gabriel Springsnow, LMT
Gabriel comes to us with over 12 years of passion and experience in the field of massage therapy. His typical style is a slow, Deep Tissue with some initial connective tissue assessment. He blends together a variety of different modalities for an optimal and holistic experience. Gabriel enjoys using Myofascial work to unstick muscle layers from one another and also incorporates Craniosacral techniques for more emotionally centered work, and of course Swedish massage for some blissed out relaxation time.
Having worked on many individuals of various ages, fitness levels – each with unique ailments – he’s concluded that keeping our energy flowing is the name of the game for long-term body happiness. He enjoys facilitating a nice muscular and connective tissue reset with his clients, while encouraging more overall body awareness.
Meet Aimee Lasich, LMT
Aimee’s education included 750 hours of training in different modalities – with focus on Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy and Myofascial Release. She has completed courses of continuing education in her areas of specialty and is constantly striving to grasp new techniques in the field of massage.
Aimee specializes mostly in Deep Tissue and injury treatment. Although she works deeply, her clients stay relaxed because of her slower, intentional style of mixing in Myofascial Release and Swedish techniques. She is very proficient in giving a relaxing massage to target muscles and smooth out the fascia while encouraging her clients to slip into a peaceful state. Aimee also enjoys working with pregnant mothers to target and relax areas that are in a contracted state to alleviate any pain or tension.
Meet Katrina Meyer, LMT
It was from injuries sustained during dance that Katrina tapped into her lifelong interest in healing and decided to pursue a career in Massage Therapy. Katrina moved to Portland from Boston where she graduated from a 750-hour Massage Therapy program at the Cortiva Institute, focusing on Swedish, Deep Tissue and Thai massage. She is also Reiki I and II certified. In her practice, Katrina focuses on relaxation and flow with Myofascial Release and Deep Tissue work.
When not practicing massage, Katrina is a dancer, specializing in blues and Middle Eastern dance and is an avid reader of fantasy and science fiction.
Meet Tracy Mattner, LMT
Tracy is a lifelong athlete, with a fascination for the human body and how it moves and changes. She brings this curiosity to every session, tailoring each treatment to the unique anatomy and specific goals of her client. She believes every person is an expert in their own body.
Tracy’s bodywork style blends Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, and Trigger Point Therapy with Swedish Massage, often drawing on Thai and Craniosacral techniques. She’s also experienced in Prenatal and Sports Massage. As a certified yoga instructor, Tracy skillfully recommends stretches and exercises for clients interested in taking their self-care experience to the next level.
