Overview

My bodywork practice is informed by 10 years professional dance experience in New York City and Portland, OR. In 2016 I completed an 800 + hour training program in Massage Therapy at East West College in Portland, OR (license #22316). I am also a certified Yoga teacher and in training to become a licensed psilocybin facilitator.

I am happy to serve all people in the LGBTQIA+ community! My massages are imbued with compassionate care and personalized attention. I believe in the... holistic power of massage to soothe not just the body but also the heart and mind. I work with Swedish, Lomi Lomi, cupping, Ashiatsu (a modality in which I use my feet to deliver pressure) and Deep Tissue techniques to treat you as a whole person, not just a body. I am responsive to your needs and can adjust the depth of pressure, speed and rhythm of the massage so that you receive the perfect balance of relaxation and revitalization.

My main goal is to provide a healing presence and trustworthy touch so that you may truly let go and receive all of the benefits that massage can offer.

Testimonials

Gathered by Luke from admiring massage clients to share with you.

Dec. 03, 2022 in Portland, OR (in-studio)

Luke’s bodywork is the physical feeling of yin and yang. From the moment I stepped into the presence of his work space I felt I could expand the expressions living inside my body and mind. Luke is an artist that understands how to tell a story through many mediums and it is easy to feel the respect he has for the body as a canvas. The session began and I immediately felt held. A sort of gentle whirlwind and spark of fire guided by his touch. I felt more rejuvenated than I normally do after massage. I was very awake with a sense of restored flow. His work has a special movement to it, perhaps it’s the dancer in Luke. The way he works with your energy on the table very much inspires the dance in me, to remember the possibilities of what our body can do and explore that. I am so thankful to have met Luke. His poetic, sensitive and wise soul is medicine for humanity.

If finding a good massage therapist seems
like a daunting task, finding a great
one can feel nearly impossible.
Luckily, if you've come this far your
search is over. Luke embodies both
the intuitive understanding of the
causes of stress and the nurturing
instincts to unravel it. Through his
practice, he has created space for
both physical restoration and also
the emotional vulnerability that
sometimes comes with it. He has
the hands, heart and soul of a
healer. I encourage anyone
considering making an appointment
with him to take the leap; you'll be
glad you did.

Luke is attentive, strong, intuitive and compassionate. Additionally, he is a good listener who can adapt his technique to your needs. His kindness and concern can be felt in the massage. Using a combination of modalities, he was able to bring me some relief from some chronic pain I’ve been experiencing. His studio is pleasant and calming with natural light and a collection of gorgeous plants. Overall, an outstanding experience. I highly recommend him!

Luke is an incredible bodyworker and healer with a profound sensitivity to each unique body and it's needs. I feel safe and comfortable working with him on every level and after recently receiving some deep work with him, I am still relishing from the release of old tension and holdings. His attentiveness and listening allows him to adapt to each moment in a way that is refreshing and has consistently left me feeling impeccably cared for. I plan to return to him many more times in the future and whole heartedly recommend his services.

I have been receiving massages from Luke for the past 2 years. He is an outstanding massage therapist. Luke provides a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. The amount of pressure if perfect, and his intuition is outstanding as he always finds the areas which need extra attention. More recently, I had been struggling with right ankle pain which was limiting my running. However, after his session, my ankle was significantly better, and I was back to running. So, I highly recommend him for either a therapeutic or relaxing massage.

Dec. 07, 2019 in Portland, OR (in-studio)

I had my first massage appointment with Luke because of muscle spasms that I was having under one shoulder blade. But I also wanted a general overall massage. Luke was very welcoming and friendly. He took a little time to get to know me and what I was looking for before he started the massage. His techniques are amazing and he is very intuitive. Best massage ever! And the spasm has ceased. I highly recommend Luke to anyone and I will definitely make another appointment with him.

Luke is a friendly welcoming guy with a great attitude-I felt comfortable immediately. He is strong and delivers the massage with beautiful fluid motions-his dance background is evident. Looking forward to my next visit!

Luke responded to my text quickly and was able to fit me in the same evening. He has a great, quiet place and he made me feel comfortable. He has great hands and I felt great the entire massage. There's something about his touch that makes you feel special. I'll definitely be back.

A massage with Luke is highly recommended. His location is easy to find, the room was great, and the music he played was very calming. He clearly knows the body and was able to give me stretching recommendations as well. I will definitely see him again.

Luke provided an excellent massage. The combination of his calm, welcoming & nurturant demeanor and his professional expertise made the experience everything I'd hope for in a massage. Some of the words I'd use to describe his style are holistic, fluid, and comprehensive. He provided just the right amount of pressure to help work out the tight & knotted sections of my back, which I was really hoping for. I will definitely be returning to see Luke!
