From the West
  • Neuromuscular Therapy

    Neuromuscular Therapy focuses on the physiology of the nervous system and its effect on the muscular and skeletal system. Through the application of soft tissue manipulations, homoeostasis is restored between the nervous system and soft tissue. Neuromuscular Therapy can eliminate acute or chronic myofascial, muscular or osseous (bone) pain, discomfort, numbness, weakness, or other neurological dysfunctions.
  • Myofascial Release

    Fascia is the connective tissue of our bodies. It threads itself into organs, muscles, ligaments, bones, tendons, and other soft tissues. It provides support and protection for the entire anatomy. Fascial tissue can become restricted & adhesive due to overuse, trauma, or inactivity, often resulting in pain, muscle tension, and deficient circulation. Irritation of fascia or muscle causes local inflammation. Chronic inflammation results in fibrosis, the thickening of the connective tissue causing pain & loss of flexibility. Direct myofascial release (deep tissue) works through engaging the myofascial tissue restrictive barrier. The tissue is slowly loaded with a constant force until the deep tissues layers are reached & released.
  • Therapeutic Massage

    Therapeutic massage involves the manipulation of the soft tissue structures of the body to prevent and alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasm, and stress while also promoting health and wellbeing. EarthTouch massages may apply adjunctive, often Eastern-inspired, therapies, with the intention of positively affecting the health and wellbeing of our clients. Massage therapy improves functioning of the circulatory, lymphatic, muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems and may improve the rate at which the body recovers from injury and illness. Massage involves holding, causing movement of soft tissue, and/or applying pressure to the body.
  • Essential Oils & AromaTherapy

    Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They are powerfully fragrant and have been used throughout history for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits. They can be administered in three ways, either topically, through aromatherapy, and therapeutic grade essential oils can be taken internally in certain instances. When applied topically and inhaled, essential oils are absorbed into your blood stream. Oils used aromatically work immediately. Essential oils used therapeutically affect both your mind and body and can be deeply calming, invigorating, and cleansing. EarthTouch uses these oils as an extension into greater health and wellbeing. A perfect compliment to therapeutic massage! Essential oils are anti-fungal, antiviral, anti-microbial, anti-parasitic, anti-infectious, and antiseptic. They are capable of purifying the air we breathe; they increase circulation, in turn increasing nutrient and oxygen delivery, and detoxifying cells. They are also some of the most powerful known antioxidants. Essential oils truly are pure concentrated plant medicines to achieve harmony of health and well being.
From the East
  • Chinese Cupping

    In this ancient Chinese technique that helps to clear the lungs, pulling congestion from the chest, bell-shaped glass cups are inverted over the skin. Chinese medicine prescribes cupping in cases where “stagnation” of blood and energy (qi) occurs, commonly in the lungs. It can be used to treat coughs, tightness, or congestion in the chest. It draws stagnant qi from deep within to the surface to be released, breaking up adhesions, creating more circulation, flexibility in the tissue, and easing musculoskeletal pain.
  • Gua Sha

    Gua Sha is another Chinese medicinal method used to promote qi (energy) and blood circulation. Through scraping the skin with a ceramic spoon, toxic heat, stagnant blood, and lymph fluid are lifted and removed from the body. Changes in stiffness, pain, and mobility can be immediate. A miraculous method of improving health. The redness pulled to the surface and rate of fading are both diagnostic and prognostic indicators.
  • Hot Stone Therapy

    Hot stones are an ancient form of healing. The basalt stones found in the depths of the ocean carry the heat of lava to deeply penetrate warmth and relax the muscles. Calming the nervous system, improving circulation, and being incredibly relaxing. The Stones can also be placed on points of the energy centers of the body to rebalance the body and mind.

Of all the massage therapists I’ve worked with over the years Hannah’s gift comes from her soul, her core – as well as her training. It’s the best gift I can give myself! Grateful appreciation.

E.H.-client for 6 yrs

The Buddha says do no harm. He must have been thinking about Hannah. She does not harm, she heals. She does not lecture, she encourages and sets a true example.

Hannah is simply one of the best massage therapists and people in Bend, in Oregon, anywhere.

David-client for 3 yrs

I came to Hannah and EarthTouch to relieve shoulder & neck pain and immobility. Hannah’s approach to therapy for me has included a range of modalities that were totally unknown to me. Not only has she helped me with these issues, but she has taught me so much about what I can do to help myself correct/overcome these problems.

Hannah’s combination of compassion, empathy & consciousness are graced by her desire to increase her knowledge of care. Her recent studies in Thailand have made a noticeable difference in her practice, and the care she gives me. She strives for improvement, in herself, as well as her client.

I am so blessed to have found Hannah and her unique abilities. She truly has a gift, and I have been fortunate enough to be gifted by her.

Barbara-client for 3 yrs

I consider regularly working with Hannah a vital part of my total health care. Whether maintaining overall well being, or to target an injury, I have had years of holistic body balance thanks to her exceptional skills as a healer and educator of body awareness.

Allie-client for 6 yrs

My wife and I are committed to doing the right things to stay healthy. We feel that our monthly sessions with Hannah are a critical part of our program. I have had some back problems and I depend on Hannah’s healing touch to work in conjunction with my chiropractor.

Steve-client for 3 yrs

I have been a client of Hannah’s since breaking my leg & battling severe nerve damage. Since then the sessions have gone from 1 hour to 2 hours, because of these treatments my leg is back to normal and my overall health has been very good, and my immune system remains strong & healthy. At first I thought the 1 hour session would be too much but now realize that 2 hours is not enough.

I would highly recommend EarthTouch Massage to anyone.

Lisa-client for 5 yrs

For 35 years, I’ve been lucky enough to experience therapeutic and deep-tissue massage (I used to live in Boulder where “Rolfing”/deep-tissue massage was invented). After moving to Central Oregon more than a decade ago, I tried many practitioners. Because I’ve been exposed to so many types of massage over the years, I know what seems to work and what doesn’t. Hannah has a unique way about her that seems to be the most effective for my body and the many people I’ve referred to her. She knows how to “listen” to the body. Combined with her extensive and continuing education and experience, she can work with it to give deep and lasting results. Many massage therapists use techniques that are quite painful. Hannah seems to have struck a balance so that I don’t have to go through “pain to have gain.” She also has a background as a personal trainer, and can suggest techniques that help your body heal long-term.

Hannah never stops learning: she usually taking a class or a workshop — she even went to Thailand to study a gentle form of massage that involves stretching called “Thai Massage.” I am grateful that she continually grows and evolves to help me and her other clients. She is truly a well-rounded healer and compassionate person.

Karen-client for 4 yrs

I am so appreciative of how Hannah has helped me return to an active lifestyle. I was suffering with IT band tightness, contacted hamstrings, calf tightness, and huge knee pain; totally a stiff lower body. I am happy to say EarthTouch Massage has been most instrumental in my healing. Today, minimal to no knee pain and no leg (muscle) pain. I can’t thank Hannah enough for her total commitment to my health. Forever grateful.

Amy M-client for 4 yrs

Hannah Olson at Earth Touch Massage is an amazing massage therapist, she can tune into the body, and cause significant shifts in people’s overall health, through the power of therapeutic massage. She has helped me with my chronic back pain and allowed me to recover quickly from a broken ankle.

Hector P-client for 1 yr

I’m an uber-snob for the health and wellness help I seek out, and strongly recommend Hannah for some of the best body work you’ll get.  She has a great holistic understanding of the body, using a unique blend of techniques.  I’ve gone to her both for pre-race preparation and for musculo-skeletal injury.  Her body work is incredibly relaxing and will catalyze the healing of your injury/out-of-balance body.

Dan O-client for 6 yrs

Hannah is incredible. She has rehabilitated injuries and chronic ailments ranging from ankle injuries, back spasms, to migraines. I really can’t say enough positive things about her work. Her blend of Deep Tissue Therapy, Thai Massage, Chinese Cupping, Yoga perscriptions and active release muscle work really get the job done. I love the hot stones and herbal compresses as well. She always finds the root of my symptoms and addresses them handily (no pun intended).

I’ve received massage from some of the best in the business and her work is top notch. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone. Do yourself a favor and book now!

Carly K-client for 4 yrs

It’s hard to put words to how amazing Hannah’s work is.  She has helped me through so many injuries and misalignment’s throughout my body.  She has such a gift for understanding how to help your body heal.  Whenever our friends and family are in town the first thing they do is make an appointment with her.  Thanks for keeping us all moving Hannah!

Maria B-client for 5 yrs

Hannah’s treatments are some of the most amazing that I have ever experienced, & I have been fortunate to have had 100′s of hours of bodywork in my life.  Her combination of touch, intuition, & training makes for dramatic responses from my body. She is such a talent! The massage therapist you want is the one that other body workers seek out, & she’s it.
Thanks for your work Hannah,
Maria Benavides, LAc

James K-client for 5 yrs

I have been a client of Hannah’s for four years, visiting her office twice a month.  She is well versed in a variety techniques, extremely knowledgeable, and very intuitive.  Her office is relaxing and she is a consummate professional.  If you feel chatty, she is interesting and fun to talk with, if not she will respect your desire for silence.  She understands that customer service extends beyond the massage table.  Your phone calls will be returned promptly and she will work with you if you must cancel.  I could go on and on, but somethings you must experience for yourself.  Go get a massage!

Eric K-client for 2 yrs

Hannah is the best!  She knows how to find, and fix, all those sore spots, including the ones you didn’t know you had.  I look forward to my appointments with her and always feel better afterwords.

Ted B-client for 7 yrs

Excellent !  She is very knowledgeable and well versed on various therapeutic massage techniques including Thai massage.  Is especially knowedgable about sport injuries and chronic alignment problems.  I’ve have many massage by Hannah and by other massage therapists; she is the most effective and very professional.  I’ve even met other massage therapist in her waiting room, waiting for their own massage from her.
