Integrating Deep Tissue with Swedish Massage


Hello. My name is Zena Palmer and I am a licensed massage therapist in Southern Oregon in the town of Medford. I was born and raised here in the Rogue Valley at Ashland and I've been doing massage here since 1987. I first learned massage in the SF bay area, then moved to beautiful Hawaii for 4 years before returning home. I love doing massage and being in a position where I can help others, whether it is just helping someone to relax or getting them out of some pain they are in. And it doesn't hurt that everyone is happy to see me!

This verse pretty much sums up what I am trying to do with the gifts God has given me, "As we have, therefore, opportunity, let us do good to ALL men, especially to those who are of the household of faith." Galatians 6:10


My massage has changed over the years, from doing the basic Swedish when I first learned to what I do today, which doesn't really have a name of it's own. It is what is called an integrative massage, made up mostly of Swedish and deep tissue techniques. I use different techniques from different massage types that I've taken classes in over the years or learned from other therapists. A real hodge-podge of styles, but it all works together for a relaxing and, at the same time, effective massage. I add in whatever technique I have found to be effective for your particular situation.


Just relax! All you have to do is lay there! I will have you undress in private and lay on the table between clean sheets. I'll put a bolster under your knees and under your feet when you turn over. The room will be warm and the music will be soft. I will only uncover the section of your body that I am working on so your privacy and modesty is maintained the entire time. While I am working on you, I welcome your feedback to let me know how the pressure feels to you. If it is too soft, I'll go deeper. Cry Uncle and I'll lighten up. Massage doesn't have to be an endurance test.

A massage is very individual to each massage therapist. See a hundred different therapists, and you'll get a hundred different massages. I hope that you will give mine a try. Call or Text me 541-608-9828 to schedule your first appointment!
