Dennis, LMT

License #5273

With more than 20 years of experience in healing ranging from Deep Tissue, Medical, Myofascial Release, Swedish, and Wellness, I am well versed in many forms of “Energy” healing techniques as well as breathwork/emotional release methods. My main interests have been in more esoteric forms of meditation and spirituality which I bring into every massage simply as a reflection of who I am.

Leda, LMT, Certified Prenatal Massage Therapist

License #274491

Howdy! I love what I do. Ever since I had a “yes” feeling about pursuing massage therapy about three years ago, everything has come together beautifully. I attended the Lane Community College massage therapy program and I feel very grateful to have found a supportive environment here at Hand of the Heart. 

I look forward to listening to your body and your words to be part of your health journey. 

When I’m not massaging, I enjoy snuggling my toddler, playing in the garden, and cooking.

I also speak Spanish! (¡Yo también hablo español!)

Tala, LMT

License #26999

After receiving many hours of bodywork in my youth, and knowing that I wanted nothing more than to be a force for good in this world, I tried all sorts of things before remembering the very practice that had been so influential in my life; the practice of massage

I aim to create a space in which no matter what you have going on in your personal or professional life when the two of us are working together for whatever time we have, you feel safe, comforted, and heard. I’m very intuitive in my practice and work with them to find the perfect rhythm. 

I have experience with Swedish, Trigger Point, Deep Tissue, Prenatal, Cupping, and Gua Sha and love finding ways to incorporate techniques to create an experience that you’ll want to come back for again and again. 

For clients who need it, I also am able to provide Lymphatic Drainage & TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) Massage. 

I look forward to working with you!

Julia, LMT, Certified Prenatal Massage Therapist

License #22578
Listening is the most important skill I have learned as a massage therapist – listening with my ears, heart, and hands. My focus is on Swedish massage which, among other techniques, uses gliding strokes and light to moderate pressure. While beneficial to anyone, it is an excellent approach for the elderly and people in frail condition. I also use gentle techniques to address fascial pain and muscle tightness. I attended Lane Community College for my massage therapy training, graduating in 2013. 
 
My family and I moved to Oregon in 2000 from the great plains state of South Dakota. Right away, Oregon felt like home! The McKenzie River is my favorite place to camp, hike, raft, and relax. I have three adult children who are making their mark out in the world.

Massage has become one of my favorite ways to directly give back to the community. My personal take on massage is that it should be as comfortable as possible in order to achieve the best therapeutic results, and that what ends up being comfortable is different for each individual. My aim is to listen well, communicate clearly, and hold a safe space for you as we co-create a nourishing experience focused around you and your needs. I invite you to come as you are and embark on the path of therapeutic rejuvenation with me.

I moved to Eugene from Illinois in 2021 to attend massage school at Lane Community College. My passion for massage was a rediscovery for me, and is something I’ve enjoyed doing since I was very young. I’m also a musician (primarily playing the acoustic guitar since 2010), and enjoy the outdoors, reading, travel, and other simple gifts that life continually has to offer.
