Hello, my name is Sheila and I became interested in becoming a massage therapist after receiving massage to relieve my own chronic low back pain. I was able to see first hand how beneficial bodywork can be and wanted to help others along their path of healing. After attending the Oregon School of Massage and becoming licensed in 1995, I went on to work in a variety of settings such as Chiropractic offices, retreat centers and running my own private practice.
My quest for more knowledge and expertise has led me into many continuing education workshops such as Onsen, pregnancy massage and doula certification, traditional floor and table Thai, and Watsu, totaling over 1000 hours of education. I am also currently pursuing a nursing degree. My specialty is treatment massages including Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy and Therapeutic Stretching. Each session is tailored to meet your specific bodywork needs.
My knowledge and work has been further deepened by becoming an instructor of massage starting in 2001. I have taught all levels of massage training and at several schools in the Portland area. I find deep meaning and connection from both teaching and performing massage treatments. I'm excited to be part of the Dr. Dot massage team and I look forward to meeting and working on you when you get to Portland.
