Tamsyn graduated from East West College in 2011, and has been a practicing LMT in the Portland area since 2012. Her approach to bodywork is inspired by her own experiences working with trauma and anxiety, where she then fell in love with the practice of massage and all that it can do to help heal the physical and mental wounds of our lives. She believes that to do great bodywork, one must not rush, or be invasive. Her standard is to greet the body, and work slowly and methodically, listening to the natural movements of the body from start to finish. She concludes that there’s nothing more important than a safe space on the table, and everyone deserves the right to have an opportunity to let go, and shed the layers that keep us all balled up inside. She has a love of Swedish massage, long term Deep Tissue work, focused objectives, and has had ample experience with prenatal, and spa therapies.

Tamra helps you sink deep within and reconnect with your body, relieving both physical and mental tension and soothing frazzled nerves. She draws upon multiple modalities including Myofascial Release, Swedish, Deep Tissue, Stretching and Craniosacral Therapy to “RESET” your nervous system; calming anxiety and helping you feel settled, grounded and better able to re-enter the world and enjoy life again or get a good night’s sleep. Tamra has practiced a form of Structural Integration for over a decade and uses an advanced form of myofascial release to neutralize the tension patterns that contribute to pain and dysfunction. When a familiar and habitual way of moving is reinforcing an old tension pattern and contributing to your pain, Tamra helps you acquire a new elemental movement pattern to further integrate the positive results of your bodywork session and help keep you out of pain. When Tamra’s not giving massage, she enjoys yoga and meditation, sharing meals with friends, gardening, cooking and walks in Portland neighborhoods.

I approach the body from a holistic perspective with conscious and mindful bodywork. I aim to balance compassion and intuition with strong technical skills utilizing both relaxation and therapeutic elements. My primary focus is to re-establish balance of energy and restore muscular forces to the body to return your body to a state of ease. By listening and communicating, I know everyone can have the experience of release and healing through massage and bodywork. As a trauma-informed bodyworker, I believe everyone’s healing process is unique and I’m honored to be a part of the journey with each of my clients.
