Kendel has been practicing Massage in the Portland Metro area since February of 2007 and has been a part of our team since 2012. During this time, her therapies in Deep tissue, Sports, Injury, Trigger Point, Pre-natal, Hot Stone and MFR Massage has helped her clients relieve their pain, stress, and/or body discomfort.
Kendel found her love for Massage when she received her first Massage at age 17 and was instantly hooked. Shortly after finishing high school she enrolled at Ashmead College and has been perfecting her skills with continuing education classes. In her free time she loves taking care of her three very active children by going hiking, going to the many parks in Portland, exploring Oregon with her weekly Sunday drives, and spending time with her very big extended family.
I know first-hand that massage can help the body heal. I discovered massage after being in an auto accident in February 2011. When I realized the benefits of massage treatment and how it could improve my life, I changed my career from financial to the medicinal field.
I wanted to do something that could give the gift I received; I did this in the spring of 2013. I graduated from Everest Institute for Massage in September 2014. I am trained in Swedish (relaxation), Deep Tissue, Hot Stone Therapy, Pregnancy, Therapeutic, and Table Thai massage. I am interested in furthering my knowledge to include Asian techniques and other modalities focusing on the neck, shoulders and back.
I enjoy spending time with family, reading, listening to music, being involved in my church, cooking/ baking, walking/ hiking, sports, traveling, going to the beach, and dining.
