Please note that massage therapy services are provided by an independent contractor and therefore are not scheduled nor billed with our physical therapy services.

Chris has been practicing Massage Therapy at Shine since 2011. In 2005, he graduated from the Maui School of Therapeutic Massage in Hawaii and he earned his Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine in 2018. An active lifestyle in a variety of activities including Track & Field, Marathon Running, Surfing, Yoga, and Functional Strength Training sparked Chris's interest in biomechanics, human anatomy, health, and wellness. This inspired his pursuit in rehab-oriented massage therapy and soft tissue techniques. 

He combines therapeutic deep tissue massage with Active Release Technique (ART) to offer a thorough treatment that provides lasting results.  His treatments are generally geared towards reducing pain, and increasing range of motion. Chris has been practicing ART since 2008 and is full-body certified in this advanced soft tissue technique.  This movement-based technique is great for breaking up scar tissue and increasing range of motion.  

Chris divides his clinical hours between Shine Integrative Physical Therapy in NW Portland and traveling assignments. He recently worked at the Nike World Headquarters Wellness Center in Beaverton, OR.  He has also been part of the treatment team for various competitions and athletic events.
