Why Functional Medicine Matters


My interest in bodywork stemmed from studying anatomy and physiology, practicing yoga, and receiving massage throughout my first pregnancy with twins. After graduating from the Oregon School of Massage in Portland, Oregon in 2005, I have worked in a variety of settings including, a hospital, aruvedic spa, fitness center, chiropractic clinic, and currently a successful private practice. In 2010 I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Community Health Education from Portland State University, focusing on nutrition and women’s health.

I strongly believe in the body’s ability to heal itself and that massage therapy is one of the many paths to restoring health and wholeness to the body. I intentionally create a massage that will facilitate client’s personal goals, be it injury recovery, personal growth, athletic achievement, or successful transition through a challenging chapter in their lives.

In addition to massage, I am passionate about local organic food, community, yoga, hiking, and spending time with my three amazing children. - Nikki Vega
