My work is thorough and treatment oriented. My clinical experience, over 13 years here in the Rogue Valley, provides me with the ability to work with clients with special needs and chronic pain conditions. I also enjoy working with repetitive motion injuries and assisting my clients in resolving postural issues and chronic tension-pain patterns.
Growing up as a competitive athlete, I was able to overcome various sports related repetitive motion injuries with the help of orthopedic massage therapy. I feel lucky that I can now provide the same relief to others. When not giving massage, I can be found out in nature backpacking and hiking on the Southern Oregon trails, in the garden, bee keeping, creating art and studying to become a clinical herbalist.
"I feel much better, more energy- and more calm and in my body! "

"Day after the first hour massage. I had no pain the evening before.
you were right, as I woke up I had no pain in my neck or shoulder from the massage, I felt considerably looser. The range of motion in my neck and arms was definitely better. I have had a high energy day. I really think than lessening the pain has helped me feel happier and lighter. Looking forward to see you again."

"My recent massage was extraordinary. It was like Holly got into almost every muscle group that was sore from either chronic wear and tear or recent work in my garden. I especially was pleased with Holly asking during the last 20 minutes for my feedback on which muscle or joint location still needed a little more work. I was so relaxed and chronic pain free that it was difficult to leave. "
Mike T -May 2023
"Holly is very, very good at what she does. She will find places that need work before I am even aware of them. She is knowledgeable beyond just massage therapy and treats her clients with a wholistic approach and give referrals when appropriate. "
Kathy O. - April 2023
" I recently had an accident that resulted in a TBI (brain injury), a SI joint that was very dislocated, plus overall body trauma. The medical system was very responsive at handling the emergency but failed completely at helping to heal. Fortunately, Holly became part of my healing team, and her work was excellent. She helped release trauma in various areas of my body, also had very helpful guidance on the overall recovery process. If you are in need, my recommendation: do not wait, take charge of your own health, and include Holly in that process. Thank you for all you do Holly!
Phil N- February 2023
"Holly is very knowledgeable and is good at what she does. I left feeling great and no more pain. Looking forward to continuing my treatment to reach my goals".
Linda T- January 2023
"I have been a client of Holly's for several years and experienced tremendous benefits for issues from a sprained ankle to a shoulder injury to the release of everyday tight muscles. Most recently I've had significant neck and jaw pain. At my last massage, I asked Holly for help. She worked on the inside of my mouth and on the outside of the jaw and by the end of the session I felt immediate relief. My jaw felt the most relaxed and spacious it has in months. I appreciated how she asked insightful questions about my body and listened carefully to my answers. She even taught me some self-massage techniques I can do between sessions! I've been recommending Holly to all my friends for years, but want to make sure anyone considering seeing her knows she is truly skilled and knowledgeable practitioner. I am continually impressed by her comprehensive understanding of the human body and how it is interconnected. Book a session with her today! You'll be very glad you did."
Morgan L.- November 2022
"While visiting my family in Germany, I developed lower back pains. Five 90-minute sessions at a Berlin physiotherapist decreased the pain but did not make it disappear. After a 90-minute massage with Holly, I had a soreness for a day, but then the pain in the lower back is gone!
Halleluja and el-hammdullillah!
Udo- October 2022
I have had flexibility and mobility issues in my right hip for years that became limiting and painful over the past several months. I knew it was a problem with connective tissue between my quad muscle and pelvis but was not able to loosen things up on my own. Holly identified the psoas as the root source of the problem. the massage work she does on my quad and psoas is not fun and easy, but the hip is releasing, and the pain has greatly diminished. I finally have hope of regaining full mobility in my hip."
Mary P- September 2022
"Thank you, Holly, for today's session! As soon as I sat in the car, I immediately felt like gifts." I was sitting taller with better posture. Thanks again for your gifts."
Kate R. July 2022
"Thanks for a good start on a new relationship taking care of my body. Really appreciated your advice on things to work on at home, from toes to nose! Feeling good!
Ken S- April 2022
"After a car accident left me with whiplash, I can say the best-case scenario unfolded: I met Holy and she set me right, better than before. Holly is a healing wonder. Every time I have seen her, I feel energetically worked over in the most intensely positive way."
Taji- January 2022
"I felt like your massage really zeroed in on my troubles and that with a few visits and my doing my exercises and stretching that I'm going to make improvements and get back to being active again."
Dan D. January 2022
"I never really liked cats, but I adored MY cat. Similarly, I'm really not a fan of massages, but I love Holly's massages! My MD sent me to Holly due to an injury, and I have found her wisdom, skill and professional network to be immensely helpful. Holly has been attentive to me as a whole person, communicating clearly to apply just the right amount of pressure, helping to discover the source of pain, and suggesting behaviors to support my health. She is a self-proclaimed nerd when it comes to learning about healing, and her patients benefit from her passion! I am a very Covid cautious person, and Holly is serious about precautions, which makes me feel comfortable and relaxed on her heated table. I can't recommend her enough!
Kimberly W. - December 2021

Thank you for a great massage yesterday. You have the knowledge, experience, will, compassion and strength to get a lot done towards returning to balance. you're not afraid to get after it. I feel so much better. I must say you are one of the top massage therapists I've ever had the pleasure to work with. You are a force for good in the world."
John H- March 2021
"My body just loves Holly! She is one of my favorite new discoveries in Ashland. her obvious knowledge of the body and massage technique has helped to work out the kinks and the wear and tear that comes with aging. I have grown to look forward to my monthly massages. Actually, I can't imagine doing without. "
Donna T- February 2021
"Holly is not only an excellent massage therapist but a true healer. She is adept at listening to what the musculoskeletal system and the tissues have to say and then skillfully ask them (with her hands delivering perfect pressure to them) to go where they need to go. She has helped relax areas of chronic tension in my body and to be present and feel more as the body. I am very grateful to her and happy to recommend her highly to any one."
S Mohan- December 2020
"I want to thank you for an excellent treatment yesterday. I got home and did a few things (like bend down :-) and realized I have been in more pain than I realized. And it is so much easier when my body moves!"
Karen R- December 2020
"Releasing the fascia in my right hip was very helpful. I am moving a bit easier today. Thanks."
Karen K- November 2020
"Holly gives extraordinary massages like very few deep tissue massage therapists I have ever been treated by! If you have long-term structural issues and related pain, as I have for 20 years, from severe stress through everyday wear-and-tear to extreme sports, she can rectify almost any skeletal-muscular ailment."
Mike M- November 2020
"Thank you for your blessed massage yesterday. I am very grateful! When I got into my car after the appointment, I realized I was able to take bigger breaths. Thank you.
Laury T- October 2020
"What a pleasure it was to meet you and experience your healing massage techniques. You related to my symptoms and evaluated my needs accordingly. Each day since, I have experienced subtle changes with pain and mobility relief. With sincere gratitude and thanks."
Karen P-October 2020
"Thank you Holly. I want to give praise for the work that you did on me yesterday. Even though I still feel the physical challenges that my body is going through, I think the body work that you are doing is having a much more profound effect on my overall well-being. I was actually kind-of sing-y and dance-y in the grocery store after my visit with you. Not the norm these days. thank you!
Luke- October 2020
"Thank you, I felt our appointment was enormously helpful!"
Jay G.- July 2020
"Since covid, I've been cautious about activities and appointment bit I felt comfortable returning to massage with Holly because of her abundant attention to hygiene. She communicated a system before and during the appointment that was thorough and reasonable. I got to keep up my self-care while feeling relaxed and safe. Thank you for your thoughtfulness, Holly!
