Isabel Burbeck

Massage Therapist

Isabel’s passion for massage started in 2006 when she took a five month trip to India, traveling and receiving Ayurvedic treatments and massage. During this trip she learned a lot about her own personal health, and the relationship between her body and mind. That is what led her to move to Oregon and begin her journey in healthcare. In 2008, Isabel graduated from East West College of the Healing Arts.

Her specialties include traditional Swedish, Deep Tissue, Cupping, Thai, Cranial Sacral, and treatment based injury recovery massage.

Kirby Teuila Grey

Acupuncturist

Kirby Teuila Grey is an acupuncturist, herbalist, bodyworker hailing from Seattle, WA. After studying theology, Kirby decided that the best way to heal herself and others was to engage with Eastern Medicine and the healing arts. With these tools and her experience and observations of the world, Kirby seeks to help folks heal from the material and spiritual diseases that ail them; to reconnect and engage with themselves holistically, systematically and in unity. Currently, she is working to create a framework that uses various tools, including ceremony, ritual, body movement, and storytelling to help people initiate, connect, and/or remember who they ARE. Whether it's a woman who's recently transitioned into motherhood, young adults in their transitions to adulthood, individuals reconnecting after addiction, or communities dealing with systematic oppression, Kirby welcomes them into her practice with an open heart.

Yela Carey

Massage Therapist

My name is Yela Carey I am originally from the Olympic Peninsula in Washington, with the Olympic National Park as my backyard. I enjoy most things outdoor-related like rock climbing, backpacking, running, and swimming in cold water. I equally care as much about the human body and condition which drew me to attending a massage therapy program and becoming certified in 2012. I have been practicing in a blended chiropractic clinic setting since then in various locations and have treated a diverse population of patients. I believe massage is a preventative aspect of medicine, and I am excited it is being seen more in this light. It can help prevent injuries and help the mind heal. I enjoy practicing Myofascial, Swedish, Trigger Point, and Deep Tissue therapies with my clients. I am excited to continue pursuing education later this year to be a Physician Assistant, but always applying the knowledge of Massage Therapy to my practice.
