Massage I am often asked if I know of any massage therapists in Portland, and while there are many great Licensed Massage Therapists (LMT) in the Portland area, I decided to dig a little deeper into what was out there. There are many styles of massage, and each practitioner has a different approach. When choosing a practitioner or a style of massage, it's about personal preference and level of comfort.

-This website claimed that Swedish massage, aromatherapy, and hot stone massage are the top three types of requested massage styles. Check them out and see for yourself. I feel the list is missing a few important styles, such as Tuina and craniosacral massage.

-Rehabilitative massage for chronic diseases, such as Multiple Sclerosis, scoliosis and fibromyalgia: Harmony Therapeutic Bodywork

-Prenatal and post partum massage for women: Mothertree Birth Services and Earth Mama both offer massage specifically for mothers-to-be and new moms. Earth Mama also offers infant massage.

- Sports injuries: Gateway Sports Medicine offers acupuncture and physical therapy as well as massage.

-For a lower-cost option, check out a massage by students at the two schools in the Portland area: the Oregon School of Massage in Southwest Portland, and East-West College in Northeast Portland. The Oregon College of Oriental Medicine offers Shiatsu and Tuina massage treatments as well.
