Holistic Women's Health • Chronic Stress Anxiety

Therapeutic Bodywork in Tigard, Oregon

Bodywork and cupping treatments soothe the nervous system, relieve tension, restore structural integrity, and improve physical function.

More than a relaxing massage, Katerina uses a variety of therapeutic bodywork techniques to restore balance and optimize function in the mind-body system.

Treatments are trauma-informed and almost always fully-clothed.

Craniosacral Therapy

Even when you’re resting, the inside of your body is in perpetual motion—from the smallest electron to the organs and the expanse of the musculoskeletal system.

Craniosacral therapy uses gentle hands-on manipulation to support the subtlest movements of the body and remove restriction. It can be administered on all parts of the body to soothe the nervous system and restore optimal function.

Although craniosacral therapy is famous for being an effective treatment for infants and children, effects can be profound on people of all ages.


Cupping Tigard Portland

Like a deep-tissue massage in reverse, cupping is a traditional Chinese medicine therapy in which suction cups are placed on the back  and other parts of the body to promote blood-flow and release restriction.

Myofascial Release

Bodywork Tigard

Fascia is a thin layer of connective tissue that links every part of your body. The interstitium is composed of the membranes and fluid within the fascia, and it is essential for the transmission of hormones and body-wide communication.

When you are under stress, fascia tightens and flow is restricted in the interstitium, leading to pain and a host of other potential health issues over time.

Myofascial release is a gentle manual therapy that opens and stretches restrictions in the fascia so optimal function can be restored.

Visceral Manipulation

Visceral manipulation combines craniosacral therapy with myofascial release to reduce restrictions in the organs so they can fuction better.


Sotai Tigard

Originally from Japan, sotai is a “reverse motion” neuromuscular reeducation treatment that encourages the body to go in the direction of ease.

Through targeted movements that meet gentle resistance, sotai works to relieve pain, increase mobility, and promote healing in the circulatory, nervous, endocrine and energetic systems.



Also from Japan, shiatsu uses tapping, kneading, pressing, and stretching techniques to support a healthy flow of qi (life force energy) through the body’s meridians (energy channels).

Medical Qigong


Qigong is the skilled practice of cultivating healthy qi (life force energy) in the mind and body.

Similar to reiki, medical qigong is used to address energetic disharmony at the root of physical and emotional issues.

In addition to utilizing qigong in treatments, Katerina teaches her patients qigong practices that they can practice at home.
