Welcome  E Komo Mai

Creating a more peaceful world.
One body at a time.

  • Are you seeking therapeutic massage for physical aches and pains?
  • Are you under more emotional or physical stress than usual?
  • Are discomfort, overwhelm and/or pain interrupting you from living a vibrant life?

Whether you feel sidelined by an injury or a traumatic event, suffer from chronic pain, or simply sit too long at the computer every day…

In the wake of COVID19 concerns we have taken every consideration into account to create a safe environment for students and clients.  Our forest studio is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized after every client to ensure that a fresh experience awaits the next person to step into our sacred space. Masks can be worn at client’s discretion. For any questions about our safety practices, please contact Ellen at [email protected] or through phone or text at (503) 931-2385.

I’m glad you’ve found Cascade Bodyworks.

I created Cascade Bodyworks in 1990 to provide a place where people could find peace, and an effective alternative to drugs used as a way to reduce or eliminate pain and stress.

The study of Hawaiian Lomilomi massage infuses my practice. The word ‘Aloha’ can be translated in many ways but its foundation is that of compassionate, loving kindness. This is also the foundation of Lomilomi, and my goal in our work together; to remind you of who you have always been, to help you regain your own vibrant health, to recapture joy and a feeling of peace and grounding.

When we work together, I draw from over three decades of study in massage – specifically Lomilomi (Hawaiian massage), CranioSacral work, Lymphatic Drainage, Reiki and other energetic healing techniques.

These methods work together or separately to help relieve the effects of:

  • Tension/muscle pain/strain
  • Arthritis pain
  • Inflammation
  • Fatigue/Epstein Barr
  • Injuries
  • Tendonitis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headache
  • Whiplash
  • Edema
  • Stress
  • Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
  • Melancholy

And to support and improve:

  • Optimal Brain Function
  • Immune function
  • Peace and calm
  • Authentic personal expression
  • Creativity
  • Problem solving ability
  • Memory
  • Joy
  • Production of stress-relieving hormones
  • Navigating in life from your heart and thinking brain versus your survival brain
  • Your sense of humor
