We all want less stress in our lives.
We need kindness, understanding, and compassion.
That’s why we created the NatureBody® Connection.
Nature heals us.
When we stretch up to the sky to take a deep breath of fresh mountain air, we feel our chests opening and our necks relaxing. When we walk barefoot across the earth, we feel our feet conforming to the ground, and the intricate muscles of our feet becoming stronger and more supple.
As lifelong outdoor enthusiasts, we want to bring our understanding of the body to you. We want you to feel a peaceful state of mind, where you are more balanced, centered, and deeply relaxed: connected in body, mind, and spirit.
Through the simple experience of listening to
…the sounds of the forest
…a soothing voice describing the beauty of the natural world
…your body relaxing to your own touch
you deepen your healing connection to yourself and the Earth.
We created NatureBody® Connection to help YOU heal your body.
Our story began when we met in massage school, back in 2001. Massage became our profession and our passion.
For twenty years, thousands of people – from the ages of 7 to 97 – have come to relax together, side-by-side, in our cozy, comforting massage studio. We have specialized in giving highly educated, full-body massage to each of our clients.
We loved sharing the magic of touch, but in 2020, the pandemic changed our world.
To keep our clients and ourselves safe, we closed our practice. We were aware that massive change was at hand. What would the world do without touch? We could sense the suffering and stress all around us.
Now that the pandemic has waned, the world is different. We are less inclined to touch one another. There is acute stress all around us. Our modern life is affecting our wellbeing.
We had an idea! 💡
Could we empower you to give yourself the effects of a deeply relaxing massage?
We need nature. We need massage. We need less stress.
The idea was too exciting to ignore! We began to research, and to dream. After many conversations, long walks together, and reflecting on our twenty years of massage experience, the idea began to unfold.
We spent three years researching, planning, writing, recording, and filming a new, innovative approach to receiving the benefits of massage. A massage that you can have wherever you are, and whenever you want. We are excited for you to experience this unique, new concept in massage therapy.
NatureBody® Connection offers you a virtual massage. It puts the power of massage in your own hands. It allows you to bring your body back to balance. It helps restore your peace of mind.
You are made to heal: and we are here to guide you, every step of the way.
As a forester with a Bachelor of Science in Forestry from Louisiana State University, I worked deep in the beautiful forests of the southeast United States, the Pacific Northwest, and Alaska. I spent my days taking measurements and assessing the health of the trees around me, and writing about my experiences.
Feeling confident in my connection with the natural world, I decided to follow in my family’s footsteps and broaden my studies to the healing arts. I chose to become a massage therapist. I have been integrating my knowledge of the natural world with the terrain of the body ever since.
After graduating from the University of Oregon Robert D. Clark Honors College with a degree in Mathematics, I spent a decade as a technical writer and web designer. Feeling the stirring of curiosity that there was a whole world just beneath the skin, I became interested in the healing arts. I pivoted my career to massage therapy. I continue to be fascinated by the patterns of the body and our natural world.
With my former career in communications, I was inspired when I felt the deep unwinding of a body under my hands. Massage has given me a new way to communicate. Through touch, I speak and listen with a language older than words.
we have spent years exploring and writing about our beautiful world. We have hiked thousands of miles together, kayaked hundreds, and spent countless evenings camping under the stars.
We have come to deeply understand that our bodies are designed to relax and heal in nature.
Let us help you connect with your healing nature, and reveal the peace the lies within you.
