Kaijah uses an integrative approach to massage using whatever technique suits the needs of her clients in the moment. She approaches her work holistically and looks at how to treat overall imbalances. She brings a caring, present approach to her technical and clinical skills. Having suffered with chronic pain from multiple accidents and sports injures Kaijah was inspired to pursue studying the most effective bodywork and healing techniques available. She uses her years of yoga and meditation practice to help her keep life in balance in and out of her office.

When not pre-occupied with learning something new, you will find her traveling, hiking, biking, running and doing anything that gets her outside.

In order to help satisfy her desire to further understand and work with the mind and body connection Kaijah earned a Masters Degree in Somatic Counseling Psychology. Prior to becoming a massage therapist she was an Outward Bound wilderness instructor where she counseled adjudicated youth and their families.

John-Paul McMullen, LMT

Photo of John-Paul McMullenJohn-Paul has been practicing therapeutic massage since 1991. He combines what he learned from every teacher he studied with into a listening approach to bodywork that addreses a person’s core needs and supports them through their individual healing processes.

His massage education began at the Phillips School in Nevada City, CA. He went on to study at the Heartwood Insitute in 1993 where he learned Zen Shiatsu, Tai Chi, and Reiki. He was initiated as a Reiki Master in Sedona the following year. Throughout the nineties John-Paul lived in Philadelphia and worked in private practice while teaching Reiki classes at a local interfaith church. During that time he was introduced to Trager work which helped him learn how best to meet and engage the deepest layers of tissue in the body in a way that is respectful and readily welcomed by the receiver. Through a combination of massage, energy awareness and movement John-Paul conceived of a personal approach toward bodywork that he continues to develop and expand to this day.

John-Paul moved to Oregon at the beginning of the millenium, where he broadened his personal style in a variety of spa settings, chiropractic offices, and private practice. He furthered his education in Portland and Olympia with classes in Deep Tissue massage and Reflexology, and in 2012 studied Chi Nei Tsang, a form of abdominal massage. He moved to Ashland, OR later that year, where he continues to live and practice.
