I discovered Kalen Garr inadvertently as I was given a gift for my birthday for a free massage. I am completely happy on every level that not only was the massage relaxing, but medicinal. I have seen maybe twenty massage therapists in my life and Kalen far surpasses all of them. She is intuitive and approaches massage on a spiritual and physical level. I didn’t even realize that my neck was out of alignment. She gently aligned it, and I walked out of her clinic, feeling like a new person. I also came to find out Kalen is a naturopath. Because her massage was so stellar, I felt I should see her since I was having a few physical issues. Her naturopathic appointment with me was incredible as well. She listens, takes notes and just has an extremely high intuitive sense on helping others. For instance, she prescribed a lavender oil to take with Tri-magnesium, this was to replace my ‘western’ prescription anxiety medication. Usually on a flight or if I cannot sleep, I take my ‘western’ anxiety pharmaceutical. I recently took a flight and instead of taking that ‘western’ medication that I feel is addictive and maybe not the best approach , I took what she prescribed for anxiety. I have to say, I was and still am completely shocked at how well her prescription of lavender and tri-magnesium worked. I was less anxious on the flight than normal, and once landed I wasn’t all ‘out of it’ like I am with my ‘western’ anxiety medication. I think Kalen is the best masseur and naturopath in Portland. This is saying a lot because Portland is copiously over-run with healers. I strongly recommend her. She is superbly intelligent when it comes to physical and spiritual healing. As well, her bed side manner is warm and empathetic. Go see her!
WOW! My body feels sooooo different, without tightness anywhere. My legs have never been so relaxed in my entire adult life. My low back and hips are so flexible now. It feels like an energy block released in my lower body. Last night (night of the session) I reached toward my feet and suddenly realized I was touching my toes, without bending my knees! I was giddy with surprise, leaped out of bed, and kept bending over to touch my toes (while giggling with delight). Wow! There have been only two short period of my life that I've been able to touch my toes. My hamstrings have always been too tight. How did ONE massage/energy work session with you release so much? I'm amazed! I bought the book you recommended to start reading tonight. THANK YOU KALEN!

About me

I received my Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in June 2011, and followed that up with a one year residency position at NUNM. I bring with me 20 years of experience as a licensed massage therapist, a lifelong interest in health and nutrition, and a deep interest in understanding the body-mind connection. My passion is helping you to feel great in your body while gaining a deeper understanding of how your body communicates with you.

My approach to your health is very individualized. I integrate nutritional counseling, herbal medicine, aromatherapy, homeopathy, lifestyle counseling, spiritual counseling, massage therapy and more to help bring my patients to a state of balanced wellness. I find that educating patients on how to take an active role in their healing process, in combination with individualized treatment plans leads to powerful lasting changes. My clinical interests most specifically include digestive health, nutrition, women's health, fertility, endocrinology, musculo-skeletal conditions, and chronic conditions such as insomnia, anxiety, fatigue, fibromyalgia, candida, hypertension and depression. My goal, in addition to helping you find a place of balanced health and feeling really good in your body, is to help you to develop a deeper connection to your physical body and its messages. This in turn helps you to deepen your relationship with yourself and your intuition, which all leads back to a more satisfying experience!

I am also a trained pelvic health specialist. Using the modalities of ATMAT (Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage Therapy), HPC (Holistic Pelvic Care), traditional massage therapy, and a variety of other creative tools, I can significantly help you to improve your pelvic health. Pelvic congestion can lead to infertility, ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, low back pain and a variety of other health concerns. For men, Maya Abdominal Massage can be very helpful for BPH and generally increasing circulation to the hips and pelvic area. ATMAT is also very beneficial for digestion for everyone.

Massage therapy is an integral healing tool for me. I specialize in swedish, deep tissue, pain management, reiki, pre-and post-natal massage, cranial sacral therapy and ATMAT (Maya Abdominal Massage Therapy), and I have trained in many other diverse modalities over the years. My bodywork sessiona are a unique blend of the most effective aspects of each modality and are tailored to you and your body's needs. I enjoy many long-term relationships with massage clients who are now patients too!

I also work with patients who are healing from auto accidents, and I am able to bill your auto insurance. In some cases, I may prefer you choose a chiropractor as the primary care physician, though I am happy to evaluate you before making this recommendation.

When not working with patients, I can be found gardening, hiking, traveling, cooking
or enjoying a good house project.

YOU'LL SOON BE ON YOUR WAY TO BEING A HAPPIER HEALTHIER HUMAN!
