Genevieve G. Rhodes
Genevieve began her career in the field of bodywork in February of 2010 after graduating from East West College of the Healing arts in September of 2009. From a very early age she held a strong interest in functional movement and strength. Receiving a diagnosis at age 13 of moderate-Severe Scoliosis, which is a structural curvature of the spine provided a major catalytic incentive to develop mew awareness and interest, helping her to endeavor to embark on a lifelong journey of continuous growth.
While attaining her provider education, Genevieve endeavored to begin a practice of receiving Functionally oriented Massage Therapy to address the results of the unbalanced use of her body, and the patterns of pain that led to. Inspired greatly by successful results from care, she built a practice that serves the community of Milwaukie and PDX with this same Functional approach.
As the practice expands now in 2017 we remain passionate about providing sustained impact through regular facilitated care, and continued encouragement to engage in a daily/weekly Self Care practice of supportive exercising and stretching/lengthening.
"The practice of providing bodywork is one that constantly allows for growth and further development. Every session, every treatment brings new experience and one more opportunity to expand in technique and fluency of healing."
