Sole Purpose Massage
Massage Therapy in Bend
Sole Purpose Massage located on Bend’s west side just north of NW Newport Ave and 5 minutes from downtown, provides professional massage therapy services, as well as movement and massage classes that demonstrate the positive effects of massage therapy on physical and emotional well-being. With “a sole purpose to help you feel better,” they specialize in deep tissue, therapeutic massage combined with Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy—a barefoot massage. The technique uses compression and effleurage strokes that glide over the body to create a structural change in muscle tissues, releasing chronic tension and holding patterns. Bars are used above the head for support and balance and warm oil is applied to the body to increase glide, with broad, continuous pressure, with most strokes done with one foot on the table and one on the client, so the pressure can be easily adjusted to your preference. With appointments available Monday through Saturday, you can check availability and book up to two hours in advance online, and also by email or phone.
