Beth-76 Low-Res webBeth has been a Licensed Massage Therapist (Lic. #6345) and Yoga instructor in Southeast Portland since 1998. She developed both practices after retiring from a career as an Olympic Nordic skier. Beth is currently an avid runner, cyclist and yoga practitioner, and her athletic and artistic backgrounds complement her knowledge of bodywork, anatomy, and Kinesiology, to help her clients and students develop and integrate keen body awareness into their daily lives.

She believes that if people are willing to develop an awareness of how their body works, they will be more capable of contributing to their own healing process. Beth has years of experience in sports massage, deep tissue, ONSEN, Myofascial Release, PNF, pregnancy, and Swedish/Relaxation.

While she takes a special interest in working with athletes, Beth’s practice is open to all who are in need of relaxation, rehabilitative, or therapeutic massage (thus the name, “ART Massage – Athletic, Rehabilitative & Therapeutic”, minus an “r”!!).  Beth is also a yoga instructor at Gudmestad Yoga Studio, and she offers private yoga sessions at her Belmont Street office.
