Heidi Miller Massage Therapist
Heidi Miller, LMTMassage Therapist
“Helping you feel like your authentic self is my passion!”
Heidi graduated from the University of Western States here in Portland and focuses on therapeutic massage – primarily deep tissue – to treat and prevent many types of issues. Whether pain or discomfort is caused by an accident, poor posture, or stress, massage can decrease healing time, reduce stress, and promote an overall sense of well-being.
Heidi enjoys working on everyday athletes and may incorporate techniques such as cupping or instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) to assist with mobility, increase circulation, and help sore muscles relax. As a CrossFit athlete, Heidi has an understanding of the stress that activity can put on the body, and paired with a knowledge of anatomy and how the body moves, will put together a massage session to suit your needs and goals.
When she’s not providing bodywork, Heidi is working on her master’s degree in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine, and hopes to soon add the title of Functional Nutritionist to her repertoire.
Phoenix Liu Massage Therapist
Phoenix Liu, LMTMassage Therapist
I attended East West College of the Healing Arts and became licensed in summer 2012. As my education progressed and my understanding of the benefits of massage deepened I discovered that my passion lies in therapeutic massage.
Inspired by the techniques and knowledge of Structural Integration my massage has developed into a blend of deep tissue, myofascial release and movement therapies. In each session I strive to provide my clients with an effective and therapeutic treatment to help unwind holding patterns, increase circulation and range of motion, bringing them relief from pain and discomfort, whether it be caused by injury, repetitive movement or the stress of daily life.
I grew up in Oregon and graduated from the Portland Waldorf School. I spend half my workweek in the Chiropractor office and the other half in a busy restaurant. I love both of my jobs! At every chance I get I escape to the beautiful deserts and forests of the Pacific Northwest and in my spare time I enjoy cooking, camping, dance, language and travel!
