About Earth Body Massage in Bend, Oregon
Hello! My name is Katie Hester, I'm the owner and LMT at Earth Body Massage. From a young age, I felt compelled to become a healer and body worker, and massage called me to it as the vehicle. After graduating from Mountain View High School in Bend, Oregon, I had an intense desire to explore this beautiful world and become licensed as a massage therapist. What I found was the Costa Rica School of Massage. At the age of 17, I applied, and although they were hesitant to take someone so young, my passion was clear and they accepted me! For the better part of a year I worked strengthening my hands and honing my skills, learning techniques such as gua sha, cupping, and deep tissue massage. That has been some time ago now, but since then, massage has taken me to places I never imagined! Music festivals, hot springs, and Bend's own Pole Peddle Paddle, are just a few.
In 2008 I began working at a local chiropractor's office. I worked with many serious accident related injuries that expanded my knowledge of our muscular and skeletal systems. I started Earth Body Massage in 2011 and it was then I began working with Dr. Hester at Bend Family Dentistry studying treatment for Temporal Mandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ). Ready to learn more, I went to Thailand and studied Thai massage from the Masters! While there, I had more of an adventure than I had planned on! But, the Universe provides and I was able to expand my mind and practice even more.
Always hungry for new ways to heal and help, I recently went back to school and got my Esthetics and Advances Aesthetician License. I now offer facials, micro-needling, and medium depth peels. I am passionate about skin care and it has been so fun to implement my new skills into my massage practice. Add a Mini Facial to your next massage appointment!I also opened Fade Out Laser Tattoo Removal, located inside Monolith Tattoo Studio.Being able to help others who may have a tattoo that is holding them back from something, or doesn't suit them any more, is so fun and has ignited a new passion for me.
