I'm prefacing this with: my prior experience with the benefits of massage therapy prompted me to seek out someone in Portland. I am both a university student and in the process of recovering from a car accident and a surgery. Now, to Danielle. I've only been able to go once, and am hoping to schedule a second visit for the near future because I was so impressed with Danielle. Not only was she very patient with me when I got lost on the way to her business (I am unfamiliar with much of Portland, being a non-Oregonian student and not having much time to explore), but before she even let me on her table she went through a very thorough medical history with me, told me about her medical background, and walked me through what she was going to do. This attention to detail on Danielle's part did not waver during the actual massage: she constantly checked in with me and told me why she was doing what she was doing, and what effect that should have on the body. For someone uncomfortable with massage, or simply unfamiliar with it, I think this would be very reassuring and very helpful - heck, I found it to be both, and I have been getting massage therapy for a few years. If you're allergic to some of the more common massage and relaxation-related things, such as lavender or citrus, Danielle keeps multiple oils and scents on hand to accommodate those needs, and she'll ask about them before bringing them out. I'm really, really lucky she does, too, because I completely forgot about my own lavender allergy (I'm just that used to the massage therapist I have back home who's aware of it) and I would've been in a bad spot if Danielle wasn't just /that/ amazing. Also, Danielle will let you choose the music to listen to! Dead serious, anything. Danielle is truly committed to helping you heal and stay/get healthy. Relaxation is not trivial, after all, it is vital to maintaining a healthy lifestyle - and she knows it, and she'll make sure you know it, too. I highly recommend her services.

Jessica is amazing !!! She came with a bright smile & uplifting positive energy. Her introduction is outstanding as well as her chi :) The aroma therapy made me melt instantly Into a splendor of relaxation. There is nothing I can say to make this a better massage. My tension in my neck is gone every time & when she leave I fell rejuvenated. I have had many therapist in the past and none have given me the direct muscle attention I have needed. Many therapist hurt or go to far she knows her limits & she is very responsive to how your muscles respond to her therapy. Your the best therapist thank you Jessica for your healing touch. 🙏🏻 See you next week.

I have been seeing Asiyih for a few years now and she is honestly the best massage therapist I have ever had! I was involved in a car accident and her continued therapy has made a world of difference in my ability to move. She also worked on me while I was pregnant and made sure to be extra careful with baby. She tells you what she feels as she's massaging you and offers stretching methods to do at home as well. She goes above and beyond and I recommend her to all my clients!

I had been dealing with pain and declining health problems for years and had the lucky opportunity to meet Corey Walden and start personal training with him as part of a push to really turn my whole health situation around. With just his personal training alone I was able to break my dependence on weekly massages that I had been getting just to be able to move. With the addition of Neurokinetic Therapy we've really found the sources of my pain and mobility problems, and I'm feeling better and moving better every week! Corey Walden is a crucial part of improving my health and wellness; Corey is very knowledgeable and very easy and fun to work with. I would gladly recommend him to anyone who wants to feel better, move better, and be in better health!

Doug is one of those one in a million health practitioners who really gets it. His knowledge and commitment to the art and science of massage is unparallelled to anyone else I have worked with. Once you experience Doug's technique and massage philosophy you will never want to use anyone else. I highly recommend him without reservation!

I have seen Margie several times for massage therapy. She uses her intuition and expertise to give my body just what it needs at that moment. She is also a great joy to interact and talk with. A very compassionate and insightful person.

Shanna was amazing! This was my first experience getting a Reiki treatment, and I'm in love! Not only did Shanna connect on so many points, but helped me feel comfortable and made it so I could look inside of myself and start healing. There has not been a single day since that I haven't looked back and placed myself in the sacred place that she is sharing with everyone. She has a beautiful gift, and I am so blessed that I was able to experience it. Thank you Shanna for your beautiful light, empowering words you shared and the self love you helped me see and feel. ❤

Velma provided remote massage therapy services for a girlfriends' weekend at an Inn. She did 5 massages in a row and gave excellent deep tissue massage right to the end! We'd hire her again in an instant! Thank you, Velma!

Dana is one of those rare gems of a therapist; she has her heart fully engaged and has the amazing insight and intuition to be able to help you where you need it most. I've referred at least 5 clients to her-my closest and dearest family and friends- and had incredible feedback. She is very loved! Her intelligence shows in her gentle, caring therapeutic processes. She walks her talk; again I find this to be very rare. I trust her completely and feel 100% at ease sharing anything. She has great empathy and is extremely supportive. I highly recommend her for any situation. You will not be disappointed.

I experienced Richard to be as knowledgeable as he is compassionate and understanding. He takes the necessary time to understand the problem fully before prescribing any therapy. I personally find his method of combining both acupuncture and massage very effective. I have been amazed that certain aspects of my injury never returned after just one treatment. I always looked forward to my next visit and consistently experienced continued healing. Spending time with Rich is also a very enjoyable experience as he is quite a pleasant young man.

I have not had many massages in my life and have always considered them to be a luxury for relaxation and for counter acting stress. And indeed a massage does relax and release stress but I now realize that a massage can also be therapy and a path to recovery for injuries or ailments brought on by routine life. Stephanie is very knowledgable in anatomy and how the body works. She not only gave me an excellent massage but also provided me with simple exercises so I can strengthen weak muscles that are at the root of my problems. The over all experience was wonderful, calming my senses while deeply working my muscles and tendons. I am now a regular client and feel better than I have for years. Kathy

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is naturopathic medicine?

Naturopathic medicine is classified as an alternative healing method, but licensed naturopathic doctors share some of the same academic background as conventional medical doctors and can often prescribe some medications. According to the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP), naturopathic medicine is holistic care that addresses a wide range of problems including (but not limited to) allergies, chronic pain, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, obesity, respiratory conditions, heart disease, fertility problems, menopause, adrenal fatigue, cancer, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Naturopathic medicine aims to strengthen and empower the body and its organs to heal itself through low-force interventions. Here are some examples of the type of medical services often provided by naturopathic doctors, as cited by the AANP:

  • Clinical and laboratory diagnostic testing
  • Nutritional medicine
  • Botanical medicine
  • Naturopathic physical medicine (including naturopathic manipulative therapy)
  • Hygiene
  • Counseling
  • Minor surgery
  • Homeopathy
  • Acupuncture
  • Intravenous and injection therapy
  • Naturopathic obstetrics (natural childbirth)

Can naturopathic doctors prescribe medication?

Licensed naturopathic doctors can prescribe some pharmaceutical medication. Naturopathic doctors complete academic training similar to that of conventional physicians: a bachelor’s degree with a focus on pre-med studies, followed by a four-year residential naturopathic medical program whose first two years have a similar foundation to that of a conventional medical school. After completing their studies, they must pass a post-doctoral exam. Although licensed naturopathic physicians are able to prescribe medication, they usually focus on prevention rather than treatment of symptoms. A naturopathic doctor will offer a holistic approach to your care that encompasses your mental, physical and emotional health. While they will prescribe medication as needed to treat illness, they are also likely to be creating shifts in your lifestyle and nutrition to effect deeper changes in your body’s response to illness.   

How long do naturopathic doctors go to school?

Like conventional physicians, naturopathic doctors undergo rigorous academic and clinical training prior to practice. Typically naturopathic doctors go to school for eight years. There are currently 20 states in the U.S. that provide licensing for naturopathic doctors. According to the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, a naturopathic doctor must complete a bachelor’s degree and an accredited four-year residential naturopathic medical program, and pass an extensive postdoctoral board examination, the Naturopathic Physicians Licensing Examinations (NPLEX), in order to receive a license or registration to practice medicine.

The first two years of the residential naturopathic medical program cover many of the same areas of study as conventional medical schools. Naturopathic doctors provide primary patient holistic care. The goal of naturopathic medicine is preventative care and a focus on low force intervention healing methods. This can include natural medicines, acupuncture, hydrotherapy, homeopathy and much more. Naturopathic doctors often work in tandem with conventional medical doctors, as the two practices complement one another.

How do you find a good naturopath?

It’s important not to get misled by the title “naturopath” when searching for a naturopathic doctor. A naturopathic doctor is a licensed professional, while anyone who so desires can call themselves a naturopath. A naturopathic doctor has completed eight years of schooling and is licensed to provide high-quality medical care. When searching for a naturopathic doctor, a good place to start is by researching your state’s licensing and regulatory body for that profession.

Currently, 20 U.S. states license the practice of naturopathic medicine. For those seeking holistic, body-centered healing solutions, a naturopathic doctor can be a good fit. They use natural medicines as well as treatments such as electrotherapy and ayurvedic medicine to encourage the body to heal. Once you have determined a list of naturopathic physicians who are licensed in your state, look for reviews, ask for referrals, and interview the physician in person or by phone to find the right care provider for your health needs.

Do naturopaths take insurance?

Many naturopathic doctors accept insurance, but a separate question is whether your insurance covers alternative and naturopathic services. There are several steps you can take to find out:

  • Verify whether you live in one of the 20 states that currently licenses naturopathic physicians:
    • Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont and Washington.
  • Confirm whether your insurance will cover naturopathic medical services. Read your insurance plan’s fine print, verify whether naturopathic doctors fall into your insurance carrier’s definition of a doctor, and confirm that the care you are receiving is considered medically necessary. Questions to ask your insurance provider could include:
    • Am I covered for this treatment by a naturopathic physician?
    • Do I need a referral?
    • Is there a list of approved naturopathic doctors in my network?
    • What will the co-pay be?
    • Are there limits to my naturopathic coverage?
  • Before seeking medical care, it’s key to understand the difference between a naturopathic doctor and a naturopath. Anyone may advertise themselves as a naturopath, while to be a licensed naturopathic doctor, a person must complete academic and clinical training.
