I graduated from Brenneke School of Massage in Seattle in 1999 where I was blessed to study a wide variety of modalities, including Reiki, Loku Lomi, Herbal remedies, Aromatherapy, Myofascial, Craniosacral and Foot Reflexology. Then I went onto to study Jin Shin Do Acupressure, Acutonics and TCM at Bastyr University. I did an advanced course in Prenatal Massage Certification from Brian Utting School of Massage. I’ve studied Nepalese Sound Healing including Tibetan Gong Baths from Suren Shrestha. I am addicted to continuing education, so my studies also brought me to Feng Shui, Space Clearings, Energy Clearing & Astrology!
Nourish yourself with massage.
LIST OF MODALITIES
A traditional Chinese medicine technique using pressure applied by thumbs, elbows or hands to acupuncture points. Can release tension, open energy meridians, and treat systemic imbalances such as migraines, insomnia, and immune deficiency. Results include improved vitality and overall health benefits.
A system of vibrational sound healing rooted in Oriental medicine that uses tuning forks, Tibetan bowls, gongs, and rattles. Can be applied while client is fully clothed and can easily be combined with Acupressure and Reiki.
Founded by William Sutherland, DO, who believed if a practitioner listened deeply to the cranial system, it would teach exactly what to do. It works with cranial fluid tides to balance the body and promote healing. Particularly effective for all manner of head injuries, whiplash, headaches, TMJ Syndrome, and back injuries.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) technique that uses a glass cup to create localized suction, increasing blood flow to an area to promote healing. It is particularly effective in areas of deep tension or knots (often shoulders). Cupping can release the armor of tension. Certain cupping spots can cure the common cold. Cupping detoxifies. It has shown that 10 minutes of cupping equals an hour of deep tissue massage.
Using deeper pressure, friction, and Myofascial techniques, a deep tissue massage can break up layers of fascia, release tension spots, and reduce adhesions. Deep tissue can give you a “hurts so good” feeling, but you should never experience real pain during a massage. It’s important to tell your therapist if you experience any pain or soreness outside your comfort level.
Reflexology is applied pressure to the feet, based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet with the belief that reflex points will effect a physical change in the corresponding part of the body. For example, if you had sinus congestion, it may be relieved by pressure to the sinus reflex of the foot.
HAWAIIAN LOKU LOMI
Lomi in Hawaiian means to weave. Lomi Lomi is a traditional Hawaiian massage taught by Kahunas, which focuses on fluid, weaving like movements across the body, using forearms, elbows, and knuckles. It is a sacred system of healing that incorporates the ideas of Ho’oponopono. Loku Lomi is a deeper tissue variety of Lomi Lomi.
HOT STONE MASSAGE
First the back is warmed with steamy, hot towels. Then heated agate stones (which were collected from sacred Native Northwest beaches) are placed along the spine, hands, feet, and legs. This warms and soothes muscles and gives the body a deep sense of heat. Complete full body massage follows to further relax warmed muscles.
NATIVE AMERICAN HEALING SYSTEMS
This is a tradition of healing techniques that includes Smudging, clearing energy, purification, release, and opening energy centers to promote health and well being.
We can bring massage to you at your home or office. Either table or chair massage available. Additional set-up fees apply.
ORIENTAL MEDICINE/ TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE (TCM)
A broad system of healing that dates back more than 3,000 years, using specific techniques of massage, acupressure, cupping, tuina, and moxibustion to balance the body and promote health.
Side-lying massage for mothers-to-be, a wonderful way to take care of yourself during pregnancy and to connect with your baby-to-be. Benefits include reduced back pain (including treatment of Sciatica), reduced swelling, reduced anxiety, improved circulation, and better sleep. Studies have shown that women who had regular prenatal massage had improved labor outcomes, better birth weights, fewer newborn health issues, and less postpartum depression.
Japanese style of massage where traditionally the client is clothed, on a mat on the floor. Shiatsu can also be incorporated into table massage, using elbows, thumbs, and knuckles to release tension and loosen muscles.
Special massage techniques designed to help athletes prepare their bodies for optimal performance before, during, and after sports events.
Refers to most basic massage techniques, including effleurage (gliding stroke), petrissage (kneading), friction (deep tissue, cross fiber) and tapotement (rhythmic tapping).
Massage is beneficial in treatment of injuries and for recuperating after surgery. This massage may be focused on achieving a goal, for instance improving walking ability after hip replacement surgery, so the focus may be on one area, yet you will still feel relaxed while improving the focal area.
An Oriental medicine technique that incorporates Taoist principles to bring the body into homeostasis. Techniques include pushing down the spine; rapid, rhythmic pressing; kneading; dragging; and acupressure. It is so rejuvenating, I recommend it after illness or injury.

I always leave feeling refreshed, relaxed and clear headed
“I have been going to Kimimi Healing Arts for about 3 years now. I get Reiki & Massage and always leave feeling refreshed, relaxed and clear headed. Terri is an amazing massage therapist who is not only a skilled healer, but the most positively optimistic person I know. I also consider her to be a great teacher, having taken her weekend Reiki class. 5 stars all around!”
I love Terie's Personality
“I saw Terri today & it was amazing. I love her personality & also how much she knows her craft. I’ve been having neck, shoulder, & back pain & needed some relief so I got a 90 minute massage. She did massage, cupping, hot stones & a couple other techniques I’d never had before & it felt great. I’m going back next week for another it’s well worth it!”
Best Massage in Bend!
“Best massage in Bend! Great masseuse. She uses various techniques to provide an all-around healing experience. She really listened (and most importantly, remembered) what I said to focus on. To top it all off, she is super personable without going overboard. I would definitely recommend Kimimi to anyone looking for an awesome, relaxing, and therapeutic massage.”
Made the Sciatica go away, never to return
