Siskiyou Massage Clinic

Syrena Nicholson LMT

Oregon License #20848

I have been practicing massage therapy since 2014. I completed my coursework through Lane Community College in Eugene Oregon where I also studied various types of dance and movement. After receiving my license, I moved to Portland- with its large, diverse population; it was the perfect place for me to hone my newly acquired skills and touch receptors. I spent 3 years working in a busy massage/chiropractic clinic where I saw clients who had various kinds of injuries: auto accidents, workplace, chronic illness, sports, and postural malalignments. I use a combination of modalities to calm the mind and relax the body. I believe that healing begins when the body is able to relax. My passion comes from helping  to assist people on their own healing journeys. Regular massage can act as a biological feedback system that allows us to listen to our body creating a deeper sense of self. I incorporate lomi-lomi, myofascial release, structural integration, trigger point, and reiki techniques into my treatments as needed.
