I opened Fusion Bodyworks PDX in 2005, after graduation from East West College of the Healing Arts in 2002.
Prior to opening my own clinic, I worked collectively for three years in Portland with chiropractors and acupuncturists which provided me the opportunity to work with many different types of clients and injuries. I am proud to employ some of the most talented therapists in Portland. Over the past 13 years I have had the chance to train in a variety of modalities, such as myofascial release, deep tissue, prenatal massage, Mayan Abdominal work, and Ashiatsu. These skills collectively bring me to my work with a distinct fusion of tools. When I am not working, I am busy with my three children, walking dogs, leaving the country and making lots of soup.
She has a love of Swedish massage, long term Deep Tissue work, focused objectives, and has had ample experience with prenatal, and spa therapies.
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.

Tara firmly believes in the power of nature for healing of the body, mind, and spirit as one holistic being.
Tara is compassionate and sensitive and takes pride in her work. She loves connecting with people and provides a nurturing and safe environment for her clients.

Tara firmly believes in the power of nature for healing of the body, mind, and spirit as one holistic being.
In her free time, Tara enjoys mothering her two-year-old son Atlas, spending time with a strong tribe of friends and loved ones, long walks and hikes with her two Wyoming cattle dogs as well as dancing, music festivals, yoga, Transcendental meditation, riding horses and continuing to better herself as an individual to be of service and upliftment to others for the greater good of the collective.
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.
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.
Are you living with annoying pain or discomfort from injury, surgery or “computer” posture and want to be able to move freely without the pain? 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.
Kelly’s wide range of modalities include cupping, hot stone massage, myofascial release, deep tissue, trigger point, relaxation, and stretching.
Kelly’s interest in health and eastern medicine, along with her passion for helping others, led her to a career as an LMT. She believes that massage not only helps promote healing, flexibility, and pain relief, but can also provide a strong sense of well being; spiritually, mentally, and physically, which contributes to the enhancement of one’s self. Kelly has experience in multiple massage modalities and likes to combine relaxation massage with myofascial release, deep tissue work, stretching, trigger point therapy and many other modalities depending on the clients individual needs. Combining multiple techniques, along with following her strong sense of intuition, she provides each client with a personalized, unique, relaxing, and effective massage. When Kelly is not caring for clients she runs a local nonprofit gallery in downtown Portland. She also enjoys spending days outdoors with her corgi, practicing yoga, mediation, and creating art.

Jessie aims to empower her client’s healing process by increasing their self-awareness through self-care education and helping them feel relaxed, refreshed, and at home in their bodies.
Jessie has been honing her craft as a healer for nearly 15 years. She addresses each client’s concerns with a wholistic approach by joining an acute understanding of Western Science with Eastern Meridian Systems, Reiki and trauma-informed care. Jessie has enjoyed working with all levels of athletes from the weekend warrior to professional athletes, such as the Portland Pilots Soccer Team, Portland Trail Blazers, and Red Bull Airforce Skydiving Team. With a focus on injury recovery, chronic pain management, and athletic performance, she works slowly with intention to manipulate deep connective tissues in the body; successfully calming the nervous system, relieving pain, and restoring function and mobility to her clients. Specializing in neck pain, she has a gift for homing in on her clients’ problem areas no matter where they are and exacting change in the soft tissue to resolve them, while continuing to give attention to the body as a whole.
As a professional skydiver with over 4,300 jumps and three World Records, Jessie understands how much can be accomplished in a short amount of time through intention and awareness. When she is not holding space for others to heal, she can be found exploring the Pacific Wonderland, practicing yoga, dancing with fire poi, or training for her next World Record Skydive.
