Gentle and effective

"Dessa has a gentle and effective approach to care, and she's a natural in the aquatic environment. She will make you feel immediately at ease in the water. I saw Dessa just one time for general stress and lingering back pain, but the beneficial effects were felt for nearly a month afterward. She was able to stretch and open up muscle pathways that are difficult to approach with other therapies- you really feel another dimension of treatment happening with the added mobility that water allows. I left the Watsu session feeling light and happy, and my low-level chronic back pain was alleviated. Thanks Dessa!"

- Beth Griffing, L.Ac.


"Watsu with Dessa was an incredible experience. Otherworldly, yet so comforting. I felt completely supported in the water. She moved my body with such grace and ease that it was easy to let go and receive the full healing benefits of this technique. I'm so coming back for more Watsu!"

-- Travis Kane, Portland OR

Talk Therapy Without The Talk!

Acupuncture has been the answer for me. It's like psycho-therapy without the need to talk. I come in and get comfortable, Dessa checks by pulses and tongue and knows just where to put the needles to make my life better.
