Greetings, and welcome to the website for Michael Gill, LMT.  I am happy to offer therapeutic Thai Massage in downtown Portland, conveniently located on the max and street car lines. The work offered here is informed by extensive training in Thai Massage and western massage techniques.  Devoting myself to the Thai model, as I have since 2005, forced me to bring those western methods to the mat, rather than offering them separately on the table (as is customary in the massage field).  If you’re familiar with Thai Massage, you already know how great it is, especially for the hips and low back.  What separates the massage offered here is how effective it is on other parts of the body as well. 

The longer I’ve worked, the more frequently people report back to me, excited about the changes in how they experience their bodies.  I often hear, “I didn’t know my body could move like that”.  It can.  It can also stop hurting.  It can move more freely and easily.  Teaching it how to do so is my favorite part of this work.

I am currently offering an introductory special: one 60 minute massage for $60.  To book a session, please call 971-279-3591 or book online.

In my 12 years of working as an LMT, I have worked on all kinds of people: young and old, active and sedentary, spiritual and pragmatic.  I’ve performed massage on athletes looking to improve performance and all manner of people with all manner of injuries.  I’ve worked on many looking to feel less pain, many others just looking for a moment of peace in their hectic lives.  A few even wrote testimonials.  One great thing about experience is that it gives you opportunity to refine your techniques, so that you can help a wider variety of people. It also allows you to find ways of combining lessons learned from a wide variety of sources.  In my case those sources include:

  • Over 600 hours training in eastern massage techniques, most of which has been in Thailand
  • Over 600 hours training in Swedish massage, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, and Reiki
  • B.S. in Health Sciences from Portland State University, with a focus on nutrition and holistic health
  • Almost 20 years training in yoga and martial arts
Within the massage, all techniques will be based on your needs.  Pressure and stretches will be tailored to your body, not an idealized one.  

Thanks for visiting!

Michael Gill, LMT
