Massage has many physiological effects, such as:

  • Increased circulation to all areas of the body. This means that more oxygen goes to the tissues, enabling them to function more efficiently.
  • Removal of toxins and waste products that build up in the tissues.
  • Reduction in recovery time from certain injuries.
  • Softening of the connective tissue that permeates the body, resulting in more relaxed muscles and more efficient organ function.
  • Breaking of the pain-tension cycle, which helps prevent muscle strains and aches.
  • Increased flexibility and joint mobility.
  • Better muscular balance throughout the body, resulting in effective support for other healing modalities, such as chiropractic and osteopathic manipulation.

Nurture Birth and Bodywork

I’m Liza and I specialize in restorative massage therapy, where I create a nurturing space for people to physically and emotionally unwind and experience deep restoration and rejuvenation.

I’m an alumni of the Oregon School of Massage in Portland, OR where I specialized in Shiastu (acupressure). I hold in depth training and certifications in pelvic and abdominal bodywork for women’s reproductive health and wellness, as well as in prenatal and postpartum massage. I’m an honored practitioner of Holistic Pelvic Care™, Arvigo Therapy®, and Integrative Pelvic Bodywork.

In addition, I’m a professionally trained Birth Doula with over 6 years of experience supporting mothers and families through the birthing time. It is one of my greatest joys!

If you are interested in receiving support from any of my services or have any questions, I’d love to hear from you!
