Licensed massage therapist in Portland, Oregon

An appointment with Hamid is unrushed, allowing you to share your body's story. We create a safe, sacred space to discover, to play, to move, to talk, to unwind. Bodywork sessions may include standing bodywork, seaed positioning, mat work, along with table work. With multi-complex chronic pain and trauma, the first session may involve more talk than bodywork.

60 and 90 minute sessions are available. Please bring clothing suitable for stretching and movement.

We don't look for the quick fix. This is bodywork best experienced in an individualized series, with sessions 1-2 weeks apart. This allows time for the nervous system to integrate global, tensional shifts in body. We are amazing, complex critters!

Let the beauty we love
be what we do;
There are hundreds of ways
to kneel and kiss
the ground.
