Types of Massage
This is our basic massage that can easily include add-ons, such as deep tissue work and aromatherapy. Most people get a 60 minute Swedish massage, but 75 or 90 minutes give the massage therapist the opportunity to spend extra time in any problem areas.
This treatment reduces adhesions and scar tissue formation, improves muscle function, increases joint range of motion/circulation and facilitates healing. It is ideal for treating acute injuries from motor vehicle accidents and chronic pain issues. This treatment can often be billed to insurance depending on your carrier.
Perinatal massage supports the unique and rapid changes that pregnancy brings to a woman’s body. It can help with lower back pain, sciatica, edema, swelling and calming hormonal changes. Perinatal supports YOU before, during and after this life-changing experience!
Lomi-Lomi is a traditional Hawaiian massage. It is also known as the loving hands massage. This name helps to explain its principles – the massage works gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, allowing the recipient to relax and give in to the nurturing touch and simply be.
Myofascial massage therapy focuses on relieving muscular shortness and tightness. Deep stretching lengthens and separates the fascial fibers, freeing the body from binding and adhesions. Myofascial massage focuses on deep stretching while using firm strokes and sustained pressure to loosen up the tissue in problematic areas.
Deep tissue massage involves applying firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). It’s used for chronic aches and pains, contracted areas such as the neck and upper back, lower back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
Certified Massage Therapists
I love the connection I make when tending to my clients to relieve their pain and stress. Whether a sports injury, dysfunction from trauma or disease, chronic pain, or prenatal massage, I get strong satisfaction from providing a positive effect in my clients’ lives. I love that massage engages my body. I use the strength in my hands to provide a firm nurturing touch. I also love that massage is always engaging my mind. Each client is a new puzzle to solve, uncovering layers from past injuries and life’s stresses and traumas to return to a state of ease. There are always new techniques to learn, new courses to take to continue to grow in my profession. Most of all I love that massage allows for me to connect with my clients in a way that traditional doctors or even physical therapists cannot. I connect with my client’s energy through my hands, and my heart. These connections with my clients are the passion that drives me forward in my career.

My goal as a massage therapist is to get you moving fluidly and with stability so that you can move through life with ease and confidence. There are many factors that can take a toll on our ability to move optimally through our days: stress, repetitive motions from a beloved activity or work, chronic pain from an old injury or underlying conditions like fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome, etc. Pain can be so distracting, and can take away from the quality of living so I strive to help you by alleviating any immediate pain as well as getting to the root cause.
My approach as a massage therapist is focused on you and listening to your needs, to help you achieve the goals you are working on achieving/maintaining today and long-term. A part of this is putting together your story, gathering information like your daily activities, the work you do, and by assessing your muscle and joint functionality to get a clear picture of how you use your body so that we can get to the root of your pain.

***Injury recovery– A variety of techniques and some exercises may be involved.
***Therapeutic massage– this works well for strains, sports injury, sports training, and chronic pain (such as old injuries, fibromyalgia, chronic headaches) and includes deep tissue.
***Relaxation–often thought of as “Swedish Massage”, I utilize more than just Swedish techniques, and I have quite a bit of Spa experience which I can emphasize for Relaxation massage.
***Foot Reflexology–this can address different health issues, even fatigue, anxiety, water retention, as well as sore muscles and general relaxation. This treatment is a 30 minute session, focusing on pressure points and areas on just the feet and sometimes ankles.I also work with some insurance.
A few techniques I use are: Myofascial Release, PNF, Anatomy Trains, Trigger Point, and Deep Tissue. I love what I do! While I currently do mostly Injury Recovery and Therapeutic Massage, I have many techniques/tools that I bring to the table, and do my best to be adaptable to customize each treatment to your needs. I have been a licensed massage therapist since 2004. Please call or text me with any questions.

Hi! My name is Krystal! I’m a licensed massage therapist, yoga instructor, and pilates instructor. I love all things healing and flowing.
How did I find my calling? I made a full recovery from a car accident with a regular yoga practice and the help of a team of therapists. Injuries are some of our best teachers. I graduated from the Massage Therapy Institute of Colorado in 2015. I was a teacher’s assistant there for two terms while I built up my private practice in Denver. I did my 200 hour yoga teacher training in Denver with Axis Yoga in 2015 and my 500 hour pilates teacher training with Club Pilates in 2016. I studied Thai Massage in December 2019 through the International Thai Massage School in Chiang Mai.
I moved to Salem to be in the Pacific Northwest in March 2019. Indigo has felt like home, so here I am! I am happiest when I’m teaching and bringing my love of bodywork and movement into the community. I specialize in Thai Yoga Massage, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular Trigger Point Release, and Sports Massage. I also enjoy incorporating hot stones and essential oils into my massages.

After 11 Years of practicing massage therapy, I can honestly say it has to be one of the best professions around! I absolutely love what I do! I like to focus on the individual and see what works best for them.
I take some of what I learned from working with a chiropractor and weave that into most of my massage treatments. I enjoy giving deep tissue/therapeutic/injury recovery, relaxation, and prenatal treatments, among others.

Motor vehicle accidents and Workers’ Comp are accepted with referrals.
Amy requires payment directly at time of appointment, online payment not available.
I practice Massage and Acupressure for simple wellness. I chose massage as a career because it can play such an important role in improving a person’s health. As I’ve been on the journey of finding more wholeness and balance in my life, I’ve realized how passionate I am about seeing others find wellness in their own lives. Through massage, I can support and nurture others who are on the path toward simple wellness.In 2019, I took the MotherTouch™ Prenatal Bodywork Certification, so I could expand my practice to offer safe and comfortable massage and acupressure sessions to pregnant clients.

I offer the highest quality of care to my clients. I accept insurances and will bill those that cover massage therapy. (Please check with your company to be sure your particular policy covers massage therapy.) I care about all aspects of your treatment. I customize each treatment to meet your specific needs by incorporating a variety of assessment and treatment techniques that are best suited to you as an individual.
As part of my service, I also may provide you with knowledge of self-administered pain management techniques such as stretching and strengthening exercises and the use of heat or cold therapy, which will help you get the most out of each treatment. As an avid exercise enthusiast who practiced ballet en pointe, modern dance and jazz dance for years; climbed most major peaks in the Pacific Northwest; slalom water skied; backpacked in the wilderness; hiked and continues to be an active Rescue SCUBA diver, I understand injury of active people and athletes in a personal and unique way. My experiences help improve my understanding of your body mechanics as a person who likes movement. In addition, I have studied medical issues such as fibromyalgia, thoracic outlet syndrome; plantar fasciitis and other common discomforts and have been very successful in treating them.
