Silvia Planas, LMT
Silvia Planas is a Licensed Massage Therapist who has worked in the bodywork field for the past 12 years. Originally starting her career in New Jersey, she eventually relocated to Florida where she completed her undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences to expand her knowledge of human anatomy and body systems. Her love for travel and helping others has allowed her to work in a multitude of different locations and learn from a variety of different professionals.
Growing up, Silvia attended many PT and OT sessions with her younger sister who was born with Spina Bifida. This sparked her original interest in bodywork and the incredible results that come from tissue manipulation and muscle re-education. Being able to see firsthand how life-changing manual therapies can be, she has dedicated herself to helping others improve their quality of life through massage therapy.
She is experienced in therapeutic deep tissue massage, sports massage, prenatal massage, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, neuromuscular stretching techniques, Kinesiology Taping, and Cupping.
Silvia enjoys working with a variety of diverse clients and is fluent in both Spanish and English. She has worked with clients ranging from professional athletes looking to improve their performance to geriatric clients seeking relief from everyday activities. She truly loves seeing clients progress through their treatment plans while measuring the physical improvements they can achieve to improve the quality of their daily lives. When she is not massaging, Silvia also enjoys traveling, spending time with her family and friends, and taking advantage of all Oregon has to offer like hiking, kayaking, swimming, camping, and attending concerts.
