My name is Joshin Yamada and I am a graduate of the East West College of the Healing Arts. I am a licensed massage therapist in Oregon who received his degree in February, 2003.
I have been trained in full body Swedish massage techniques for therapeutic uses. I incorporate trigger point therapy, deep tissue work, foot reflexology, hot packs, and Thai massage into my routine to give you the best massage in a calming, non–judgmental environment. I have been certified by the Somatic Healing institute in fibromyalgia specialization as well.
I have a massage studio located in my home in the Mt. Tabor district of Portland's historic Hawthorne neighborhood, conveniently located near the number 14 bus line. Parking is also available in my driveway to the North of the house. Please see this map for further details.
Massages are delivered atop my handbuilt Robert Hunter massage table. Wider than a standard table and built with extra reinforcements for solid rigidity, the extra thick foam delivers luxurious comfort. The table is portable as well, so call me if you want to schedule an outcall massage.
Initial massages are $40, while my regular rate is $55. Outcall massages include a $20 minimum surcharge, but please call so we can discuss driving directions.
Because so many of my friends are teachers and I can really empathise with them, current educators will get $10 discounts off the regular massage price. Just bring your school identification card with you. I also can sell a block of 10 massages with a $10 per session discount to non-educators.
Please note that though my cats are not allowed in the massage studio, they do live in the same house.
