Pam has been a massage practitioner since 2000. A graduate of the Brenneke School of Massage, Pam has practiced massage in a wide variety of settings including physical therapy and chiropractic clinics, in private practice focusing on pregnancy and postpartum massage, and even working with horses and dogs. At Wandering Hummingbird Massage, Pam combines these experiences with modalities including Deep Swedish Massage, Balinese Massage, Chinese acupressure, hot towel therapy, and Do-Terra essential oils. When your body needs it, she also incorporates Craniosacral Therapy, visceral manipulation, and deep tissue treatment techniques.
In addition to massage therapy Pam is also a postpartum doula, infant massage instructor, dog walker - plus a few more things! She owns a handknitting business, Beannaigh Traditional Handknitting, where she designs traditional fishermen’s sweaters and teaches knitting classes. She fosters rescue dogs, grows an impressive garden at a nearby pea patch, and loves to ride bikes around her downtown Issaquah neighborhood with her 9-year-old daughter.
Pam’s massage sessions provide a deeply relaxing experience. “Connecting” is her favorite word to describe her bodywork. Our bodies often get us through fast- paced and disconnected days, with tasks broken up into tightly scheduled, sometimes unrelated chunks. We come to think of our bodies in the same way, with “my neck and shoulders” and “my low back” being common areas of focus. Pam puts these pieces back together so that your neck remembers that it belongs with your back, your feet remember that they belong with your hips, your body gets a chance to really rest, and you leave your session feeling a profound sense of ease and connectedness.
