At Aaby's Intentions, I will work with integrity and intention for a massage intended just for you. As a massage therapist I work in a diverse and nurturing community, practicing integrity, honesty and dignity.
In the bodywork technique known as deep tissue massage, the therapist will target chronic tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. It is a muscle-specific modality that involves slow strokes, and direct pressure or friction movements. Unlike Swedish massage, which may reach only the few top layers of muscles, deep tissue massage will reach down through all five layers of muscle. Massage therapists will use their fingers, thumbs or occasionally even elbows to apply the needed pressure.
The most common type of massage is Swedish massage therapy. It involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on topmost layers of muscles. This is also combined with movement of the joints. By relieving muscle tension, Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing. And it may even help after an injury.
Developed to help with muscle systems used for a particular sport, sports massage uses a variety of approaches to help athletes in training -- before, during, or after sports events. You might use it to promote flexibility and help prevent injuries. Or, it may help muscle strains, aiding healing after a sports injury.

Chair form of massage is performed with the client sitting in a massage chair. The client is fully clothed and massage techniques that don't require massage oil or lotion are used. This type of massage is less effective than a traditional massage, but is very convenient in the workplace to relieve stress and increase the productivity of employees, as well as their health.
Using hot stones in a massage helps relax tense and adheased muscles. Warming muscles creates more movement and pliability to the body. It also enhances blood flow, which allows stagnant blood to move and brings fresh oxygenated blood to the muscles...making it healthier. We hand pick all of our stones from hikes and trips around the Gorge, making them all the more special.
Thank you for showing an interest in Abbys Massage Intentions.
Candie Aaby - LMT# 19982, After 25 years in the same house I have turned my oasis in to a landscaped property unique and welcoming. The garden and home rests behind a large deep, well-groomed hedge that separates visitors from the bustling world outside. This gives the garden the effect of an oasis of rejuvenation within an exhausting desert. The backyard is home to a prodigious koi pond. Water cascades down several stone steps to form a fountain that swiftly pours into the pond. It creates a soothing and revitalizing sound to wash away all anxiety before the massage even begins.
By surrounding my clients with the pure life that rests in nature, my practice is seen as distinctive. A Massage INTENDED JUST FOR YOU.
