“Cupping technique is a big part of my regular massages with Valentine, and I can’t recommend it highly enough. It is the only technique I’ve experienced that has truly lasting effects between my monthly massages. It is a unique skill and Valentine is very knowledgeable about it and very good at it!” –Beth S.

“Valentine is an amazing massage therapist. She is really in tune with what each individual’s body needs to recover and grow. I have greatly benefited from her practice with cupping. Valentine’s demeanor is gentle and playful making your massage experience laid back and fulfilling. If you live in the Portland area, you should definitely give Massage by Valentine a try!” –Sara S.

“I have been getting massages by Valentine for 5 years. She’s my favorite. She is really calming just to be around. The massages are truly therapeutic. She is a master! I pretty much feel like a new monkey every time I walk out. She has a lot of experience with different types of massage so, she can always tailor the session for my needs. I highly recommend a session!” –Tyler A.

“Valentine was my masseuse, and she was wonderful!  Her technique was absolutely amazing, and to top it all off, she was incredibly kind and intelligent!  I would highly recommend them to anybody looking for an extremely effective and relaxing massage.” –Joanna M.

“I have been suffering from chronic back and pelvic pain for over three years. I came to [Valentine] just hoping for a relaxing massage, but ended up leaving almost pain free. Valentine’s trigger point therapy technique works wonders and massages from her have become a weekly component of my pain management. Valentine is very caring and professional. She listens to your needs and goes above and beyond her job such as sending me information on Yoga classes she thinks may be beneficial. I am so grateful to have found Valentine. She has significantly improved my quality of life.” –Emily M.

“Valentine was a total pro, asked a lot of good questions, and then gave a remarkably healing massage – I swear I was at least an inch taller walking out of there.  She intuitively honed in on my trouble spots (and some which I didn’t even know were a problem) and really worked on a deep level; an informed touch that was just the right degree of firmness.  Topped off with some craniosacral work, plus some alignment tips which were valuable even for this sometimes-yogi.  Valentine is terrific at what she does; I would recommend her highly. I used to come to Portland regularly – looks like that’s only going to be a handful of times this year, but I’ll try to get back to [Valentine] when I’m in town.” –Fred M.

    Valentine is incredibly knowledgable and intuitive. A session with her is deeply therapeutic on a multitude of levels. She has helped me with chronic issues for the last 6 years and has recently incorporated cupping Into our sessions with wonderful results and benefits not only physically but aesthetically too. I always leave her feeling rejeuvenated, relieved, and reinvigorated. I am deeply grateful to her as she has been an invaluable support to my healing process. I highly highly recommend her.

    I have been very satisfied by my sessions with Valentine. I feel completely at ease in the space that she creates, and cared for after my session is over as well. I have found that no matter what problem I can pinpoint, her blend of styles addresses all the muscles connected to it in a holistic way. I especially like her trigger-point work and am excited about cupping at my next session to help detoxify.

    Valentine is a highly skilled and extremely knowledgeable massage therapist.
    She has a great intuitive sense. She seems to know exactly where to work and how deep to access potential problem areas to get the best results. She creates a lovely and comfortable environment and she is extremely generous with her time. After our sessions she sometimes emails relevant articles about some of my chronically inflamed areas that I have found very helpful. Valentine is a valuable asset to this community and I highly recommend treatment from her!

    Wow! What an amazing massage! I felt so comfortable and cozy the whole time. I went in for help with a recent injury, which Valentine worked wonders on! And, I’m not even sure if I had mentioned this other area on my back where I have chronic pain, but she found it, and when she did, I felt a great release of tension that other massage therapists have rarely, if ever, been able to do for me. She also showed me some stretches I could do to continue the healing process on my own. I can’t wait to see her again!

    The best massage I’ve ever had. Over the years I have had many many therapists work on me. Earlier today Val gave me the best massage I have ever had!

    Valentine has very nurturing hands. Her empathic nature turns them into magnificent tools of healing. My experience was that every movement, every touch became a discovery which led to a deeper understanding of my body’s needs. Some things can be taught, but the powerful connection she creates is innate, not learned.

    Valentine performs very effective body work. She is an excellent listener and I consider her to be a “healer” who has studied various methods therapy and applies them as needed. Perhaps my highest complement is that I’ve referred her to others as I will continue to do.
