Kelsey Ryan, LMP
Licensed Massage Therapist
Kelsey fell in love with the Pacific Northwest in 2008 and it’s magic eventually brought her to Portland from her native Michigan. Along with her admiration for the Pacific Northwest, she also found a passion for holistic approaches to healing.
A graduate of East West College of the Healing Arts, Kelsey has more than two years and hundreds of hours of hands-on experience. Through her practice, she integrates a blend of Tui Na, Craniosacral, Deep Tissue (working with the deeper layers of the body and using certain techniques to manipulate the muscles on a deeper level and not to be confused with firm pressure) and Swedish/relaxation massage to offer therapeutic massage for her clients.
Kelsey is trained in pediatric, general population, and geriatric care, as well as prenatal and postnatal massage. By offering a wide range of massage lengths, Kelsey is able to offer optimal care to her clients. Massages lasting no more than 30 minutes tend to work best for clients between the ages of four to fifteen or for people suffering from anxiety. Sixty minute massages allow for focused care on 1-2 areas of the body. Longer treatment times, up to 90 minutes allow for full body work while focusing on problem areas as well.
In order to promote balance and free flowing energy, Kelsey strives to listen to, connect with and educate every client. She provides each client with information about their body and ways to support healthy mind, body and spirit. Kelsey approaches every client as unique and each treatment reflects this belief offering tailored care.
Dr Larson has helped me cure long standing health issues where others have failed. Forever grateful for her care, intellect and compassion.
