Sarah Macias

Sarah Macias

Licensed Massage Therapist

From my own experience with pain management, I take an integrative approach to massage therapy. Sometimes treating the symptom isn’t enough to eliminate pain and having a holistic view of the body can help unravel the root causes of pain. Lack of nutrition, along with environmental, and emotional elements can manifest as pain and I understand the impacts it can have on the body. Massage is a great tool to manage pain and working together we can create specific treatment plans to optimize your health and help you raise awareness of your body.

I have been practicing massage in Portland since 2008 after graduating from University of Oregon in 2006 with a BA in Cultural Anthropology and attending East West College of Healing Arts in 2007. Over the years, I have worked closely with chiropractors and acupuncturists treating a wide variety of ailments including: chronic and acute pain, stress, anxiety, depression and injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents. Having been called “the velvet hammer”, my training in deep tissue and relaxation massage gives me a soft, yet firm touch; narrowing in on specific issues or creating a whole body experience.

Carlos Cruz

Carlos Cruz

Licensed Acupuncturist

I became a massage therapist in 2014. My journey to bodywork began while serving in the United States Army as a medic. Working in the Western medicine epicenter of a level1 trauma center I was quickly jaded to the ideas of the quick fix that most western medicine seemed to focus on. Deciding to still stay in the medical field I became an Occupational Therapy Assistant in 2012 and began to study manual treatment techniques. Becoming certified in Active Release Technique(ART) for the Upper body and Graston Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation, I began to see the wonders of manual techniques and their holistic approach to injury/pain treatment. Exiting the service in 2013 I quickly started massage school where I learned the basic swedish massage techniques while at the same time getting as much information on Deep Myofascial Techniques of which ART was somewhat based on. Starting with Anatomy Trains( a great book by Thomas Myers), I began my journey with Structural Integration(SI) techniques learning a variety of modalities from many different schools of Structural Integration. As of May2014 I have become certified as a Structural Integrator from the Soma Institute of Neuromuscular Integration. My work at the moment revolves around using Somassage and SI work to rid people of both chronic and acute pain and body imbalances. I can do focus sessions but the longer time I have the better I can help the body with issues that is going on. I hope to bring this work together with my eastern medicine practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine of which I started at OCOM Fall 2016 and graduated Fall 2019 As well as my medical knowledge I also bring my background in fitness being a certified Crossfit Coach with deep understanding of Barbell lifting( Power and Olympic styles) as well as a growing knowledge and proficiency in Gymnastics, Bouldering and general Rehab/Prehab and Strength and Conditioning. As of late have started on my quest to getting a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Today I live in Vancouver, WA/Portland, OR area with my beautiful wife Stefanie and 5 kids Reverie, Milo and Maggie and new additions Phoebe and Luna. As of October 2019, I now offer Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Prescription to my available modalities. I hope that we can work together and that I can impact you with bodywork or Oriental Medicine the same way it has had an impact on me physically as well as mentally and emotionally.
