Crystal has been an LMT since 2008. She currently serves her community as an educator as well as in her private practice where she offers varied therapies, including Deep Tissue and Thai Massage. “I love massage so much that I want to tell everyone about it. It nourishes me just as much as it nourishes my clients.”
She realized that she wanted to become even more involved in the field of massage, and so, in the Spring of 2014, she began to serve students as an Instructor and Alumni Services Coordinator at East West College of the Healing Arts here in Portland, Oregon.
Her mission is to increase the awareness that every body deserves massage, and to support Licensed Massage Therapists in the important work they do. Interests include community health through massage therapy, encouraging the presence of compassionate touch in our culture, somatic approaches to trauma, and international travel. She tailors her mentoring and massage treatments to each unique client, blending a mix of her training in multiple Massage Modalities, as well as her background studying Cultural Anthropology.
Crystal is a member of the Associated Bodyworkers & Massage Professionals.
