Blueprint for Balance
Menu About me Why Massage Contact
“The skin is no more separated from the brain than the surface of a lake is separate from its depths; the two are different locations in a continuous medium … The brain is a single functional unit, from cortex to fingertips to toes. To touch the surface is to stir the depths”

Testimonial

“There are lots of massage therapists in Portland ... but there are very few that are this good. Ever since my auto accident injury, I've been worked on by dozens of bodywork practitioners.  All this time, though, I've continued waking up every morning with an aching back.  After my first massage therapy session with Collaine, I woke up the next morning feeling wonderful.  All those same places where the pain would always be were ... just ... clear.   The massage was more than just relaxing ... it was truly therapeutic and restorative to a whole other level.  

Along with her deep proficiency, you can also tell that Collaine has put a lot of thought into creating the very best possible environment and treatment experience for her patients.  It feels like I have found a powerful ally in my healing process.”
