Pain, pain go away

Bree Ashby provides a place of healing at Vista Massage & Wellness


by: TIDINGS, REVIEW PHOTO: CLIFF NEWELL - One of the nice things about being married to Bree Ashby for her husband, Doug, is that he can receive an instant free massage. Doug holds up his end of handling business operations. There is a lovely panorama of Lake Oswego that can be viewed from the new clinic Vista Massage & Wellness on Jefferson Parkway.

People will feel even better once they receive the services offered by Bree Ashby, LMT. She and her husband, Doug, worked hard for two months this summer to remodel their business suite, and since August, she has been putting her healing hands to work. Her mission: Get rid of your pain.

“I provide treatment for back pain, chronic pain and whiplash,” Ashby said. “By the end of this month I’ll be licensed to provide prenatal massage for expectant mothers.”

This treatment will help expectant moms by decreasing their pain and discomfort and improving their skin elasticity, joint movement and muscle tone. Ashby is excited about having this new service.

“I’m constantly learning and growing,” she said. “This has been an amazing journey of personal growth.”

A native of Salem, Ashby first fell in love with Doug, then she fell in love with his hometown of Lake Oswego. The view from her office sums up her feelings.

“I love it over here,” Ashby said. “A big reason why we wanted to have our office here is that we live right down the street.”

Healing through massage has been a lifelong interest for Ashby, and four years ago she decided to go all out in pursuit of it when she enrolled at the Oregon School of Massage.

“I fell in love with it,” Ashby said. “Helping people feel better is so rewarding. I can’t imagine doing anything else.”

While Bree handles the healing, Doug handles the business side of the operation. He recently returned home to Oregon after serving with the U.S. Military in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Vista Massage & Wellness is located at 412 Jefferson Parkway, ste. 204, in Lake Oswego. To make an appointment, call 971 245-6383.
