"Ocatilla was a total angel, making me feel extraordinarily nourished and nurtured during my time with her, which was one of my first self-care moments as a new mom. Her intake was incredibly thorough and caring and the massage was magical- I slipped off into an internal ocean at some point and had no idea how much time had passed by the end. What a lovely and talented person!"
"I have been seeing Ocatilla,(Tia), for a few years now. I would not go to anyone else. She uses a vast variety of techniques , and is very caring. Tia seems to "read" areas of my body that need more work and truly has magic hands. Her calm demeanor puts me in a happy place! She is an awesome massage therapist and I will highly continue to recommend her to all..."
"After my first prenatal massage, I was so pleased with Gaealena and Tia. Tia was so kind and supportive. She took the time to talk about how I was feeling and what to expect. She was very comforting and kind to a new expecting mom. Gaealena was a very calm and relaxing space. I greatly look forward to my next visit."
"I got a great massage from Tia. She was warm, kind, and skilled, and took time to speak with me and understand my needs both before and after our session. The space at Gaealana was awesome as well. Highly recommended."
"I had 2 surgeries on my shoulder this summer. Tia has helped to heal my body and it is amazing how she is totally in tune with what areas need to be to worked on. Her calming demeanor sets the tone to begin with, and then it just gets better! I always leave with a smile on my face! Highly recommend!"
"I had a massage with Ocatilla to treat some lower back pain. She was sure to gather appropriate information about the injury and was very communicative about her plan for the massage. The atmosphere was soothing, and she maintained a tranquil silence while also checking in and encouraging me to let her know what was and wasn't working. Post-massage, I felt like some of the tension had been released, and I hope to go back again soon! Very easy-going, cute Portland-feel to the house. Thanks!"
"Tia was so careful with my injured shoulder. Some how she managed to relax my entire body even though I was in a lot of pain. By the end of the massage I could raise my arm over my shoulder and breath more deeply without pain. Tia has the ability to be very careful and effective. She listens she checks in and she gave me the best massage I have ever had, injured or not!"
"I love The Gaealana Healing Arts Center! I see Tia for deep tissue massages. She also does reflexology on my feet...Awesome! She is a wonderful massage therapist! Calm environment and a truly great full body massage. Check this place out."
"I always have a wonderful massage experience with Tia. With her soothing energy and skillful hands, I am able to let go of my tension and truly relax. Thank you for a great massage!"
