Hawaiian Proverbs, Values & Truths Olelo No'eau to Live The Sacred Hawaiian Way
The base of my practice lies in Hawaiian Lomi Lomi. Each session I pray for guidance to ancestors for a safe, nurturing and healing session leaving you feeling balanced and restored. Loving intentions and gratitude for the practice are set throughout the journey.
The strokes are long and flowing mimicking the ocean. Lomi lomi can be light and relaxing or deep and therapeutic using palms, knuckles, forearms and sometimes knees and elbow.
What the fascia??
Connective tissue! Like cotton...It's the fabric of our lives. :)
Lately I've been taking workshops learning more about this amazing web in our body and...how it's all connected man.
I've been incorporating some principles and techniques from Structural Integration bodywork and implementing them into my lomi lomi practice. Client results have been amazing! I'm seeing dynamic change in posture, improved quality of life and extreme awareness. So grateful to be sharing this gift.
Here's a link to learn more about SI bodywork.
Auto collision therapy
Have you been in a collision? In the state of Oregon, if you are injured in a car, pedestrian, or bicycle crash, then your PIP insurance will pay for your “medical bills”, regardless of who was at fault, for up to 12 months after the crash or up to $15,000, whichever occurs first. This coverage is Oregon's version of no-fault insurance. With a referral from your doctor (M.D., N.D. or D.C.) your massage is covered by your PIP insurance.
Upper back neck and shoulder pain including whiplash, nerve entrapments, headaches, and pain from seat belt restriction.
Lower back, hip & knee pain.
Later stage manual therapy treatments include joint mobility, traction and movement education.
I incorporate comprehensive relaxation and subtle craniosacral techniques. This encourages unwinding and trauma decompression to naturally take place.

An hour and 1/2 with Karrie is divine. I floated off her table and out of her studio with lengthened and balanced hip/lowback/psoas structural alignment, sassier hip swing and bliss in my body/being. She's not only got great technique, she also has amazing and nurturing energy which imbues her therapeutic work with tenderness, and fluidity. I'm a busy massage therapist down in West Linn and I travel to NW Portland because time with Karrie is transformative both physically and energetically.
Originally I'm from California, by way of Maui for the past 10 years. I grew up with a big hispanic family; every weekend I would be the one walking on uncles back or squeezing aunties shoulders. Not a surprise to anyone I'm on the path of wellness and healing. I'm a passionate body mover since I was young doing aerobics videos like The Firm and Mousercise on Disney Channel! Today I'm stoked on swinging kettlebells, FUNctional fitness, rolling around on the floor, hiking in nature and learning about local plants in the north west. My most recent training has been in Structural Integration and the FASCIAnating world of fascia.
I truly look forward to meeting you!
