We could all use a little more massage.
That’s why we created Virtual Massage™.
Our story began when we met in massage school, back in 2001. Massage became our profession and our passion.
For twenty years, thousands of people – from the ages of 7 to 97 – have come to relax together, side-by-side, in our cozy, comforting massage studio. We have specialized in giving highly educated, full-body massage to each of our clients.
We loved sharing the magic of touch, but in 2020, the pandemic changed our world.
To keep our clients and ourselves safe, we closed our practice. We were aware that massive change was at hand. What would the world do without touch? We could sense the suffering and stress all around us.
We had an idea.
Could we bring massage to you online?
A virtual massage!
The idea was too exciting to ignore. We began to research, and dream. After many conversations, long walks together, and reflecting on our twenty years of massage experience, the idea began to unfold.
We spent two years researching, planning, writing, recording, and filming a new, innovative approach to receiving the benefits of massage: wherever you are, and whenever you want. We are excited to unveil this unique, new concept in massage therapy.
Virtual Massage™ puts the power of massage in your own hands: so you can bring your body back to balance and restore your peace of mind.
You are made to heal: and we are here to guide you, every step of the way.
We are so excited to share Virtual Massage™ with you!
The next chapter in our story…
As a successful forester with a Bachelor of Science in Forestry from Louisiana State University, Erik worked deep in the beautiful forests of the southeast United States, the Pacific Northwest, and Alaska. He spent his days taking measurements and assessing the health of the trees around him, and writing about his experiences.
Feeling confident in his connection with the natural world, Erik decided to follow in his family’s footsteps and broaden his studies to the healing arts. He chose to become a massage therapist. Erik has been integrating his knowledge of the natural world with the terrain of the body ever since.
After graduating from the University of Oregon Robert D. Clark Honors College with a degree in Mathematics, Faye spent a decade as a technical writer and web designer. Feeling the stirring of curiosity that there was a whole world just beneath the skin, Faye became interested in the healing arts. She pivoted her career to massage therapy. Faye continues to be fascinated by patterns: the patterns of the body and our natural world.
With her former career in communications, she was inspired when she felt the deep unwinding of a body under her hands. Massage gave her a new way to communicate through touch: in a language older than words.
we have spent years exploring and writing about our beautiful world. We have hiked thousands of miles together, kayaked hundreds, and spent countless evenings under the stars.
We have come to deeply understand that our bodies are designed to relax and heal in nature.
Let us help you connect with your healing nature.
Nature heals us.
When you stretch up to the sky to take a deep breath of fresh mountain air, your chest opens and your neck relaxes. When you walk barefoot across the earth, your feet mold and conform to the earth, and the intricate muscles of your feet become stronger and more supple.
As lifelong outdoor enthusiasts, we use our understanding of the body to bring you into a peaceful state, where you feel more balanced, centered, and deeply relaxed: connected in body, mind, and spirit.
Through the simple experience of listening to
…the sounds of the forest
…a soothing voice
…the descriptive beauty of the natural world
The vibrant imagery in our NatureBody™ meditations ignites deep relaxation in you.
We created Virtual Massage™ to help YOU heal your body.
