Eren Bartsch, LMT, CKTP®(they/them)
I began my career as a licensed massage therapist (LMT) in 2010, following my training at Cortiva Massage School in Seattle. I choose to be a massage therapist because of the healing power that touch, movement, and conversation have to help a person recover from pain and discomfort. I love working alongside my clients as they rise above their limitations.
I know from personal experience the effects that pain from car accidents, injuries, or chronic disease can have on our lives, and I strive to help and facilitate my clients as they navigate their own journeys through the healing process.
I regularly work with clients who have been in auto accidents, or who live with chronic pain and limited mobility. I utilize visceral manipulation and its related concepts in my treatment sessions, taking advantage of the gentle and direct way it allows us to treat the body and the nervous system. I am certified to massage the muscles inside the mouth (this is called intraoral massage) which can be fundamental in relieving jaw pain, neck pain, and headaches. I am a Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner® (CKTP®), which allows me to further assist clients hoping to decrease pain, reduce swelling, improve injury recovery, and promote better posture with the use of Kinesio Tape®. I also treat clients seeking relaxation, stress relief, help with anxiety or depression, or the benefits of massage during pregnancy.
In addition to working directly with my clients, I also teach continuing education classes for other massage therapists, training them in intraoral massage and breast massage .
Whatever reasons you have for seeking massage, I welcome you and look forward to working with you!
