"I can't recommend Otis highly enough - after an hour of the best massage I've ever had I felt more relaxed and stress-free than I had in months. Otis is intuitive and clearly cares deeply about clients, and worked out knots and tension that I didn't even know I had. I can't wait to go back for future sessions and have encouraged my friends to do so as well."

My style integrates deep tissue Swedish massage, injury treatment techniques, myofascial release and trigger point therapy, with TCM meridian therapy and acupressure.   I work intuitively in conversation with a client's body to release pain and tension patterns. Acupressure release opens channels for health of body, mind, and spirit.  What I have come to discover in my work is that among the many layers of acupoints and channels, fascia weaving together muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bones are stories of memory stored in the body.  Using intuitive deep listening and witnessing, effective healing release is possible on all of these levels in which tension is the common expression.

I was trained and licensed as an LMP through Bodymechanics School of Myotherapy and Massage in Olympia, Wa.  (not licensed as an RMT in BC)
