Kira graduated from East West College of the Healing Arts in 2002 and has extensive experience with prenatal and postpartum massage, as well as grief and trauma support through massage. She has studied tui na, trigger point, deep tissue massage, hot stone, Chi Nei Tsang, structural integration, craniosacral, and biodynamic massage.
Kira believes in providing her clients with the space to disconnect from the internal chatter and slip into that zone where they can acknowledge the body’s inherent intelligence and desire for wellness. Using a blend of techniques woven into a Swedish massage that’s as firm as it is gentle, Kira looks forward to meeting each client exactly where they are and engaging the body in the wonderful conversation that is therapeutic massage.
Having developed her style at Breitenbush Hot Springs and practiced massage at several of Portland’s finest day spas, Kira found the perfect home at Body Aware Massage in 2015, where the supportive team environment has enabled her to do her best work yet.
