Welcome! I’m Summer Adhara, a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), yoga instructor (RYT-200), and healer based in Portland, Oregon.
I have been a practitioner of the healing arts for more than two decades. As a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT ) and Rhythmical Massage Therapist (RMT), as indicated by Dr. Ita Wegman and Dr. Margarethe Hauschka, my treatments are tailored to your unique biography and will address your whole physical body along with your mental and emotional well-being. Every session combines holistic science and intuition for preventative and long-term care, matched to the unique rhythm of each client’s tissue. In addition to rhythmical massage therapy, treatments may incorporate myofascial release, polarity therapy, craniosacral therapy, deep tissue, sound healing, reflexology, meridian acupressure, trigger point, tui na, or guided meditation.
My mission is to meet each individual with warmth and skill to help them feel more ease, confidence, freedom, and health in their lives. I love helping others feel better in their bodies and souls, and guiding them as they discover the strength to step forward in their lives with more joy. I am so grateful to be able to carry this work forward into the world with each and every session, practice, and treatment. None of us are the same. In order for healing to occur, the individual must be addressed, not the disease. Without understanding the individual and their unique biography, the nuances of healing are lost. Through my profound love of people and their stories, we are able to work together to set forth on the healing path.
