Tabitha Thurston, LMT

Cotswold Academy of Health and Beauty - Cirencester, UK - 2004
Everest Institute - Tigard, OR - 2013
Specializes in:  Therapeutic Deep Tissue Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Reflexology, Clinical Aromatherapy, Pregnancy and Indian Head Massage

My approach to bodywork takes a holistic approach to treating the root cause of pain while alleviating the symptoms that accompany it.  I enjoy solving the puzzle behind the problem and working with my clients to find the best treatments for their condition.  Having trained as a Complementary Therapist in England in 2004 and as a Therapeutic Massage Therapist in 2013, I have a wide variety of tools to find the right blend of treatments.  I became a body worker because I genuinely enjoy helping people who suffer from chronic pain or other health conditions such as IBS, anxiety, depression and hormonal imbalances. I also enjoy teaching future massage therapists at Everest Institute in Tigard where I instruct Deep Tissue Massage.

In 2014, I began a new journey of studying Precision Neuromuscular Therapy and have seen impressive results when working with chronic pain and injuries.  This style of bodywork uses assessment techniques to pinpoint the cause of pain and incorporates trigger point therapy, stretching and neuromuscular therapy to obtain lasting results. 

   

Serenity Ackley, LMT

Everest Institute - Tigard, OR - 2013
Specializes in:  Integrative Deep Tissue Massage and Pregnancy Massage

My passion for bodywork incorporates the long term benefits of treatment work with the immediate effect of relaxation. I look for the root cause and formulate a treatment plan that works with my clients needs. I completed training in Massage Therapy from Everest Institute in 2013.  I have over 10 years of experience in customer service and always strive to bring a warm southern hospitality to my practice.  My clients will enjoy a deeply relaxing massage that not only melts away stress, but also chases away the aches and pains of everyday life.  I work very hard to show each new client that they can receive both treatment and relaxation in the same session. I am dedicated to the holistic health approach and am always seeking new ways to improve each modality that I specialize in.

I enjoy all modalities of massage, but I love deep tissue work the most.  My clients enjoy my gentle and cheerful personality.  My approach to massage targets problem areas using deep tissue massage, stretching and neuromuscular techniques to alleviate chronic pain.  I enjoy building strong relationships with my clients and developing treatment plans that fit their goals. 

 

 

Lacey Simone, LMT

Everest Institute - Tigard, OR - 2013
Specializes in:  Integrative Deep Tissue Massage, Trigger Point Therapy and Pregnancy Massage

My favorite massage modalities are Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point, myofascial release, and neuromuscular therapy. Stress plays a huge role in our body’s capacity to heal. Combining practices of mindfulness/meditation, exercise, and massage can have profound effects on the healing journey.
