I can help with postural deviations, chronic tight & painful joints & muscles.
I'm so happy I found Marcella! I am a bodybuilder and was looking for massage in the Portland area to help with my training. I like to feel like I'm getting real work done when I'm getting massaged. My fiancé recommended Marcella after getting massage treatment from her for a bicep tendon tear and repair he had many years ago. I was skeptical at first because I'd been to so many massage therapists over the years that didn't work for me. After my first massage last year I can say I'm hooked and I see Marcella twice a month as part of my training regimen. She is excellent at what she does and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend her! -Kerrin F.
As a "professional" amateur athlete who's had exposure to many types of care I have found Marcella to be the cream of the crop. Many times I have shown up to her broken and in various degrees of pain from intensive training and competing in triathlon. Her technique and knowledge of how the body moves and what triggers those pain points allows her to work in a strategic and artful way. I have left her sessions absolutely amazed at the results which have allowed me to get back to effective and purposeful training much quicker than simple rest or a beat it out of you "sports" massage. The best part is she will show you preventative stretches and after care so you can maintain your positive momentum. She truly is an artist in her craft, a professional and I highly recommend her for whatever it is that you need work on. Quite simply, Marcella's expertise, fun demeanor, and professionalism will work for anyone. - Jon B.
"Marcella has helped me regain the use of my shoulder after a rotator cuff injury and I was back kayaking three months after getting injured. Three years later, after I had knee surgery, I turned to Marcella again to augment my physical therapy and was biking in less than a month. She has also helped me improve my posture and her knowledge of anatomy rivals my doctor and chiropractor. I see her regularly for treatment. - Ted Eugenis
My husband and I were referred to Marcella six years ago by our personal trainer (PT). Marcella continues to amaze us with her knowledge of body mechanics, massage techniques, gentle spirit and caring nature. She has been a collaborator with our PT to help us through chronic pain issues with back, hips, knees, shoulders and stomach. She is an incredible source of information on body, health and wellness and continues to educate herself in order to provide more support to her clients. We love having Marcella as a resource and appreciate her keeping us moving!!! - G.M.
