Many thanks to my clients for their comments and feedback…

I appreciate each and every one of you!

“Becky is my dream therapist.  She is deeply sensitive and perfectly consistent.  I always look forward to her massages with anticipation, knowing that everything will be addresses carefully and that my body will become whole again.  she creates a safe and beautiful atmosphere where you can relax and hand yourself over to her expert hands.  I more than recommend her, I am down right envious of the next person she will massage today!”-Patricia Campuzano, L.Ac.  Licensed Acupuncturist

“Becky is not only a massage therapist, she is an intuitive.  She has an uncanny ability to bring up memories, ideas and calming feelings in me while I am in her hands.  she also knows when to apply gentle pressure to my spirit when she sees that I am stuck.  She not only releases my body tension, she releases my Soul.” –Joni Kabana, professional photographer www.jonikabana.com

“Becky has been my massage therapist for many years now.  I always look forward to my appointments with her and I always leave feeling wonderful.  she is a masterful massage therapist who is very dedicated to her clients.” –Mark Saindon, MA, LMFT

“Becky…you did a great job and your “touch” is just right!  By that I mean effective and results oriented–not too strong or painful or too weak to be ineffective.  Your use of multiple modalities also contributes–acupuncture/shiatsu, reflexology, myofacial, etc.  The results were excellent and I suspect the pressure you used on my left shoulder scapula may have been key to a noticeable improvement in my rotator cuff mobility/pain.  So, in totality this was the best bodywork I ever received.  You are a real “healer.”-Doug Crow

“I started seeing Becky upon a recommendation from a coworker…it was one of the best decisions I’ve made!  Becky’s intuitive and skilled bodywork therapy not only touches one’s physical being but also taps into mind and spirit.  During her sessions, I can literally feel myself becoming charged with positive, loving and healing energy.  I leave my session  feeling charged and ready to tackle the world!  Becky’s warm personality and sense of humor make her  pleasure to know and be around…her insight is priceless!  I am deeply grateful for my connection to Becky and highly recommend her to anyone seeking to feel nurtured and energetically charged.”-Petra Gilbert, Artist

“Becky is fun and spiritual, energetic and serene, always smiling and upbeat, with the ability to remain focused on her work and with her clients. She does an excellent job of blending her love of the body, mind, spirit awareness that she honors in each of her clients, with her more technical skills and intuition. When you leave you can definitely feel transformed on many levels.” -Linda Hunt, Licensed Massage Therapist and Associate Polarity Practioner

“Becky is a rare massage professional.  She combines her extensive knowledge and intuition with her kind and delightful personality as she listens with respect to her clients inner knowing.  She responds with GLEE when her thumb hits the SPOT!” -Jane Adams, Portland, OR

“I have been the lucky recipient of Becky’s considerable skills as a myofascial release/massage therapist for the past year.  She has demonstrated a thorough knowledge of her profession, and is a very intuitive and compassionate LMT.  She provides comfortable, nurturing surroundings accompanied by a open, caring, concerned approach to client care.  I recommend her very highly and without reservation to anyone seeking the services of an extremely gifted and professional massage therapist.” -Sue Wainwright

“Becky is truly a healer.  She creates an immediate feeling of deep comfort and trust that goes much deeper than a great massage. After a session with Becky, I float home wrapped in total wellness and warmth. Each session is unique and perfect for the time. Becky’s hands reach through layers of tension and knots, finding a perfect complement to work, hiking or yoga and just plain life. She is magic. ” -Christine Linder, West Linn, Oregon

“My first  massage with Becky was in 2000 when we were doing yoga together Becky knows yoga and she is a student of the human body. Prior to that I enjoyed going to various LMT’s to sample the many different energies, but I don’t do that anymore. I love Becky’s energy and I want her hands and her superlative knowledge of human anatomy on my side. Her space at the Water Tower is a sanctuary, not to be missed. I vouch for it.”  -Peter Torres, Board Certified Master Arborist Portland, Oregon

“Becky is the BEST massage therapist I have ever been toShe is intuitive about my body, mindful of my experience and sensitive to my needs. She is a healer.  Whether you think you need her or not, you do! You will feel transformed, enlightened, and even carefree. This is the body’s natural state.  Sometimes it just takes someone to remind us!” -Kathleen McElderry,  Lake Oswego, OR

I have been a client of Becky’s for over 10 years. I have severe scoliosis and Becky’s work has been instrumental in my ability to live more comfortably with many chronic problems associated with my back.  Her massage work increases my energy and relieves the stress of life’s demands on my body and mind.  Over the years I have been to many massage therapists and I am grateful to have found Becky.  I have come to rely on her as a friend and highly recommend her to anyone who feels there is that “something” missing in their massage work.” -Tina Uber, Artist

“When I need to relax, but also when I need to learn about what might be going on in my body, I call Becky. Her knowledge, intuition, and healing touch help me to look and feel my best. I’ve been to massage therapists all my life, but no one straightens me out quite like Becky. To top it off, the warmth and spiritual vibe in her office cradles and comforts like no where else. It’s an investment in myself that gives back ten fold!” -Erin Donley 

“I recommend Becky Belding as a massage therapist.  In my 16 years in the industry I have heard at least 2000 stories from incoming students, current students and the public about their massage experience.  The biggest complaint is either the therapist doesn’t work deep enough or they felt their massage hurt.  Upon further discussion, I found they had little input into their massage session.  Becky Belding has the ability to give a very effective massage.  You definitely will not feel she lacks the pressure needed to address the tissues of the body.  And, you will also be safe on her table.  Becky demonstrates excellent communication skills and will help you receive an excellent, performance enhancing massage.  My massage from Becky allowed me better rotation of my thorax, which improved my Dragon Boat paddling technique.” Elizabeth Halsey, Dean of Admissions @East West College of the Healing Arts

“Becky is a highly effective massage therapist who is very intuitive, understands the body, and more importantly, understands the influences one’s experiences, responses to those experiences, and energy levels that get stored in the body.  She effectively and gently works with the client to release those and find more effective means to be whole and healthy.  I consider her an invaluable partner and resource in achieving and maintaining wellness.  I have highly recommended her many times and my referrals have found her equally magical.” -Jane Paligo

“I have been receiving massages from Becky for nearly 15 years. Her expertise and intuitive touch have never faltered. Each time I see her, she will share something new. She makes herself available to fit my schedule, living some distance away. She is never rushed before or after her services, allowing time for discussion and response. I cannot recommend her enough!” -Kay Schmerber, White Salmon,

“Becky is a true healer. She is outstanding. Becky is incredibly intuitive, grounded and truly masterful masseuse. After a massage, I leave feeling centered and energized spiritually, mentally and physically. I have never received a better massage. I give her my absolute highest recommendation! She is a true gift in my life.” -Kayla, Portland

“Wow, whether you are down in the dumps or “simply” have overused muscles this is the therapist to use! Becky has the touch. She cues into all your ailments in a very quiet and secure way. Never goes beyond your comfort zone. The massage is simply to die for and you feel good the next day. Very caring and at the same time very deep. I have recommended her to dear friends who just rave about her as well. She has my strongest recommendation.” -Kicki Masthem- Portland‎

“Becky is the very very very BEST!!!! Not only does Becky deserve her reputation as an amazing massage therapist, she is one heck a of person as well. Her amazing energy and generous spirit over flow from her. Anyone lucky enough to be treated by Becky is very lucky indeed!” -CB- Portland

Becky is amazing.She knows what your body needs and hones in on that but also focuses on the body as a whole-she doesn’t just go through the motions, or work on each quadrant of your body separately like many other LMTs/spas I’ve been to. She’s happy to communicate with you throughout, or will take your lead and stay quiet, only chiming in when necessary. Highly recommended!”-B-A Portland, Oregon

“I have been a client of Becky’s for over five years now, finding her through the path of yoga.  The combination of a setting that welcomes and embraces all of the senses, an openness on Becky’s part to dialogue about my life path (but only as far as I want to go!), and a totally profound mix of skill and sensitivity in her physical massage practices simply makes for an awesome massage experience.  Becky challenges, encourages, and/or simply allows me to relax, all depending on the read of the energy we both bring to the session.  I have had the opportunity to experience a number of various types of massage from a variety of individuals over the years, and I keep coming back to Becky.  I can’t recommend her highly enough!”-Marty Opsahl, Portland, OR

“Becky seems to know exactly what any pregnant woman (and non pregnant) needs when they are on her table.  Becky has the uncanny ability to zone into the exact area where attention is needed without fail.  Every massage is the epitome of pure comfort complete with heat, pillows and expert positioning for deep relaxation.
