Jennifer Olsen, LMT #8306, graduated from Utah College of Massage Therapy in 1991 and have worked full time as a massage therapist since then. She is an Oregon Licensed a member of the AMTA and is currently serving as the secretary for the Oregon AMTA chapter. She has training in postural analysis and orthopedic assessment, neuromuscular therapy, trigger point therapy, myofacial release and myoskeletal alignment. Her relaxation massages include aromatherapy, hot stone massage and reflexology. She is the owner of About Touch since 2004.
Elena Amodeo, LMT #16410, has always been interested in health and the genius of the body. With a degree in Health Sciences from Northeastern U in Boston, and after 15 years in a hospital setting, she made the decision to pursue a more alternative route. She graduated from Carolina School of Massage Therapy in 1992 and soon thereafter took another 2 years to understand the energy patterns within the body by studying Polarity Therapy. An intro class to Craniosacral Therapy “wowed” her, so off to Boulder she went to study until graduating in 2000. Including the brain and nervous system now in her work felt complete. Her education has been a metaphor of her own personal process. Each new branch of study, brought her deeper into her own complexity, traumas, awareness and healing.
Chelsea Heath, LMT #12078 and Certified Rolfer, has been practicing bodywork for the past ten years. She has extensive training in myofascial release and structural analysis, and has received her Rolfing license from the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration at Boulder Colorado. Her experience and training facilitates a deeper connection to the levels of “self”, blending accurate, gentle and effective release. Chelsea’s focus is on addressing the underlying cause of symptoms, improving self correction and increased self awareness. One’s attention is turned inward throughout the session, increasing vitality and the ability to live comfortably in the body.
Anna Miller, LMT #17733, graduated from the prestigious Swedish Institute in New York City in 2000. Combining elements from swedish and shiatsu, she creates a session that is strong, focused, nurturing, intuitive, and effective. After receiving a massage from Anna clients have reported feeling rejuvinated, increased range of motion, ability to do activities that they couldn’t do previously due to injury or overuse, a deep sense of relaxation, reduced pain, and an overall sense of well being. In her personal life she is a mother and a dancer which contributes to a nurturing and flowing energy in her massages.
