Massage is movement.

As a massage therapist skillfully moves their elbows, hands, and fingers over the painful and restricted areas of their client's body, movement is multiplied. The client's blood and lymph begin to circulate and deliver the oxygen and nutrients cells need to heal; muscles and fascia remember full range of motion. With a healthy body free of pain, movement gains momentum and the client can enjoy using their body for work and play once again.  

Movement is medicine.

At Making • Movement we incorporate research, experience, and creative problem solving to determine which muscles are causing our client's pain or discomfort. Unlike many business models in the health and wellness world today, it is not our goal to have returning clients. Instead, we want to effectively and efficiently treat temporary conditions so our clients can regain their permanent position, that of making their own movement for years to come.

When the body gets working appropriately, the force of gravity can flow through. Then...the body heals itself.

Jessica & Jonathan

Both Jessica Ives, LMT and Jonathan Ives, LMT graduated with honors from the Sage School of Massage in Bend, Oregon in the fall of 2016. There they learned Swedish and deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial techniques, orthopedic assessment and treatment, and various other clinical massage techniques to treat chronic pain, injuries, and sports conditions. Among their instructors was a six-time top 100 finisher at Ironman's world championship race, a martial arts sensei, and one of the world's top female rock climbers. Central Oregon and the city of Bend provided year round adventures to keep them both active and outdoors.

 

Jessica has been making and selling art for more than 20 years. Her education at the Cooper Union combined with her love of outdoor activity has led her to paint people adventuring through the landscape and expressing their kinesthetic intelligence. Her love of sport and her eye for color can be seen at www.jessicaleeives.com.

Jonathan grew up on the coast of Maine and enjoys all activities involving water. A captain, boatbuilder, fly fisherman, and surfer, he appreciates living in Camden where the ocean, lakes, and rivers are just minutes away. His positive energy and enthusiasm are just a few of the qualities that express his contagious love of life.

The body is movement. Breath is life. And the base of our being is the support of others.
