Healing Massage Therapy

Katrin Fink, LMT in Portland, OR, provides a variety of healing bodywork therapies to help you achieve total wellbeing.

Bowenwork Therapy

Bowenwork is a dynamic system of muscle and connective tissue therapy that was developed by the late Tom Bowen in Geelong, Australia. It utilizes small but measured inputs to the body stimulating the body to heal itself, often profoundly.

The Bowen technique addresses the entire body by restoring balance via the autonomic nervous system (ANS). Signals are delivered to the nervous system at specific locations (on muscles, tendons, ligaments, or nerves) and the body does the rest.

Bowenwork usually results in the relief of many specific injuries and other health problems, both acute and chronic including digestive and bowel problems, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, frozen shoulder, back pain, neck pain and headaches, menstrual and hormonal irregularities, knee and ankle problems and much more.

Bowenwork is gentle on the body, effective and appropriate for anyone to receive, including newborns, highly trained athletes, pregnant women and the elderly. Each person responds differently to a Bowenwork session, according to his or her own body’s need and ability to heal.

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on, whole-body modality that focuses on stimulating your craniosacral system (membranes and fluid that surround the brain and spinal cord) to heal the body by improving the functioning of the central nervous system. CST effectively complements your body’s natural healing process, and has been known to help alleviate a wide variety of problems including: headaches, neck and back pain, stress related problems, immune disorders, fibromyalgia, central nervous system, disorders, TMJ Syndrome, Autism, chronic fatigue, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and many more conditions.

A typical craniosacral session lasts between 50 and 60 minutes. You may also choose to combine a massage session with a craniosacral session. This is a great way to experience the combined benefits of massage therapy and the gentle healing qualities of craniosacral therapy.

Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic massage involves the manipulation of soft tissue to prevent and alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasms and stress. It helps to facilitate greater healing and wellbeing for the client.

In my sessions, I often combine Neuromuscular Massage Therapy (specific techniques that treat soft tissue pain and dysfunction) with gentler Swedish massage (a gentle relaxing massage) to create a therapeutic and also relaxing session for the client.

Oncology Massage

Oncology Massage is a gentle comfort massage with the intention of relaxing the client to help alleviate stress as well as ease pain and discomfort. The touch is light and compromised areas are avoided. This is a wonderful way to be supported during and after cancer treatments.

Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy massage is a form of bodywork designed specifically for pregnant women. Pregnancy is a time in which a woman’s body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical, mental and emotional changes. Using various techniques specifically for the new mother, pregnancy massage helps alleviate discomforts experienced throughout the pregnancy.
