With an extensive background in dance and yoga, Iris has always cultivated a keen physical self-awareness and is particularly interested in the ways different experiences manifest uniquely in each person’s body. She first became seriously interested in bodywork after experiencing the great emotional release that can occur in tandem with physical release, and her understanding of the connection between mind, body, and spirit has continued to deepen with every massage given and received. Iris graduated from the Northwest Academy of the Healing Arts and is trained in techniques such as deep tissue, Swedish relaxation, trigger point work, myofascial release, prenatal massage, and reiki. She approaches each massage with compassion, intuition, and sensitivity to individual needs, combining both deep and gentle work to usher the body into a state of relaxation where profound release may take place.
