Massage and yoga are my passions. Utilizing education and experience I provide an individual treatment plan based upon my clients needs to achieve complete wellness for the whole person.
My name is Diane Davidson and I have been blessed to be a licensed massage therapist with a thriving practice since 2010. I’d like to introduce myself by sharing with you why I chose massage therapy for my career and my personal philosophy.
For over a decade I have been a dedicated student of yoga, and for the past eight years I have taught classes. The clarity and balance I receive from my practice does not restrict itself to the time I am on my mat. All aspects of my life have received the benefits of my practice. The literal translation of yoga (from Sanskrit) is “yoke” or “union”. The practice is an acknowledgement that your mind, spirit and body are one. To remain physically healthy we must also be mentally and spiritually healthy. Each of these is connected to the others; they are yoked. It was from this place that I made my decision to attend Oregon School of Massage in 2008. I feel that my massage career is an extension of my yoga practice, a modality that fosters union. All people have an intuitive understanding of what brings health and quality to their spirit, mind and body. When we follow our internal wisdom, we become our own counselors, teachers, doctors and best friends. Meditation and self evaluation are two critical elements that keep us in touch with our intuitive nature. Massage provides a natural opportunity to practice the aforementioned steps. As your massage therapist, I will provide open and honest communication and respect that you’ve come to me with the desire for a successful healing experience. On your lifelong journey of personal wellness, I am but a humble guide (and an anatomy geek!). It is my honor to be of service to my community.
