Grace 2 Gc | Xenana Spa | Portland OregonGrace

Massage Team Lead

Upon graduating from the East West College of the Healing Arts in 1996, Grace began her path in the spa world. Working for a number of high end Portland spas has given her a variety of treatment knowledge, including hydro-therapies, wraps and ayurvedic modalities, which soon evolved into training other spa technicians in body treatments, spa menu planning and many quality assurance and managerial tasks.  Knowing the spa world from the foundation up helps to ensure that each guest will have the most gratifying spa visit possible and that each person leaves feeling like royalty.

Grace will work with each guest to personalize each treatment to their specific needs using her abilities to listen and respond with an intuitive, methodical and strategic approach.  She has been trained in Clinical Deep Tissue, Hydrotherapy, Swedish, Ayurvedic Body Treatments, Myopathic Muscular Therapy and La Stone, hot stone massage, and many other spa therapies including wraps and scrubs.
