Happy New Year!

<<First Name>>, I wish you a joyous holiday season and a healthful new year!

So much newness for you to look forward to this year. 

Continuing Education - This year I completed my goal and attended the remaining Fascial Counterstrain classes through the Jones Institute they currently have available. Next year I will take a new class they are offering as well as continue the mastery skills classes with the Counterstrain Academy in Beaverton.

Teaching - I am currently teaching the Myofascial Sculpting classes at Oregon School of Massage in Salem and would like to teach this in other states as well. Therefore I am preparing to travel more next year. In preparation for this I have invited Vanessa Partida, LMT to share my office space and filling in for my regular massage and deep tissue clients. Vanessa has recently taken my Myofascial Sculpting class (cupping and gua sha) and will have available hours in my office starting in January. Vanessa has a natural and intuitive touch to her work and is enjoying incorporating the Myofascial Sculpting to her technique.
Much love,

Self-Help Remedy

Here’s a new self-help remedy for everyone! The foundation of my practice is to educate clients how to care for their health both at home and while using my services as needed. I recently discovered ‘Inclined Bed Therapy’ and have been trying it for 1 week as of this writing. 

Since birthing my three babies in three years (19 years ago), my body did not recover 100%. As I continue to learn different modalities in attempt to get help for my body as well as my clients, my legs were still achy on a regular basis and needed ongoing maintenance to keep the circulation going. My liver and kidneys have had trouble for years requiring maintenance and special care even though I received bodywork weekly, but haven’t found a resolution for these things until now.

What relief! I'm so excited to share this information with anyone having health issues, so please pass this newsletter along to your friends and family who may be having issues.

Welcome to the office Vanessa!

Since I'm out a few days teaching each week, I've brought Vanessa, LMT into the 8 Hands fold to help with overflow of regular and deep-tissue massage. She's a wonderful addition, but I'll let her tell you about herself:

"My name is Vanessa Partida, LMT (Lic. #18789) I'm a mother, daughter, sister, wife, and a licensed massage therapist. I have been licensed since February of 2012. I started my career at Everest Institute in Tigard. I have worked at a Chiropractor's office in Woodburn for 4 years and most recently Massage Envy. I also worked as an examiner for the Oregon Board of Massage.
The modalities that I love and enjoy doing are deep tissue, Swedish and recently got certified in Myofascial Sculpting which uses silicone massage cups and gua sha tools. I also work with motor vehicle accidents (MVA).
I have four children that need a lot of attention. They love quality time with mom and dad. I work three days out of the week to be able to spend more time with them.

For more information and scheduling, you can contact me by phone or text at 503-868-1723." 

Way More Bang
for your Buck

As I take more classes, learn more techniques, integrate all that I know into your session and more quickly resolve an issue and move on to the next, I'm finding I can do so much more than I did before. I'm so pleased with the feedback from clients that the Fascial Counterstrain technique offers quicker benefit and is more effective especially when combined with other skills that I’ve accumulated through the years. To cover my continued education and cost-of-living and business expense increase, I will be raising my rates to $125/hr. in March. Thank you for understanding.

Get in before March at the current rate to see for yourself how great Fascial Counterstrain is!
