Bodywork

Lily Lunneman-Warden--Massage Therapy Manager & Staff Licensed Massage Therapist.
I've been licensed for eleven years. In my practice I specialize in myofascial release, sports injury, pregnancy, deep tissue, trigger point release, and cupping therapy. I value taking my time to listen to clients so I can more effectively treat their needs and leave them relaxed. I enjoy providing supportive and helpful feedback that clients can take home as part of their continued self care regime.

I've lived in SE Eugene since 1999. I’m a mother to a precocious and active son who brings me lots of joy! I am blessed to have a beautiful community of dear friends and colleagues with which i share this beautiful life.

Sean Vierra--Owner and Staff Licensed Massage Therapist
My journey in bodywork originated from my mother's struggles with chronic pain and my goal of healing scoliosis in my own body. I believe bodywork isn't a luxury, but a necessity for the fast-paced life and demands of a modern world. 

I have practiced some form of bodywork since 2005 and have studied in both Oregon & Utah, attaining the title of master bodyworker in Utah. After completing massage school, I studied with Marcia York under the supervision of Hawaiian Healing Academy to learn a traditional Hawaiian bodywork called Lomi Lomi and it continues to form the base of my practice. I specialize in injury work, trigger point therapy, deep tissue massage, headaches, neck pain, back pain, and traditional Hawaiian Lomi Lomi bodywork. 

I have worked in many settings from resorts and spas, to clinics and private practice and aim to bring this diverse set of skills to the table for my clients every day that not not only heals the body but restores the mind. 

Sande Maxwell--Staff Licensed Massage Therapist
I have been licensed since 1986. I first received my massage license in Florida then moved to Oregon and received my Oregon license in 1988. I was a certified Trager Practitioner for over 20 years, and it is still a great influence in my work. 

Over the years I have been a student of The Berry Method, cranialsacral, myofascial release, and sports massage and have done massage at The Oregon Country Fair and Cycle Oregon as well as other sporting events around the state. I have practiced chair massage at the Saturday Market, the Holiday Market, and other various venues around Eugene. 

I am a member of the Oregon chapter of the American Massage Therapy Association, past president of the Oregon Massage Therapy Association, and the Florida Massage Therapy Assocation. 

I will work with you to achieve your goals of relaxation and pain relief using any and all modalities in my repertoire. 

Lydia Scott--Staff Licensed Massage Therapist
I have practiced as an LMT since 2006. Both of my parents were bodyworkers, so I grew up with an understanding of the benefits of bodywork. Aside from doing massage I work and live on a small organic farm and teach gardening to kids. I am very grateful to work in fields promoting health and helping people feel their best. I enjoy working on an array of people from elders to athletes to children. I am happy doing relaxation, Swedish, deep tissue, myofascial release, sports massage, and I often mix these modalities in my work. 

Shannon Foor--Staff Licensed Massage Therapist
I graduated from LCC's massage program in 2010. Originally from Ohio, I moved to Eugene in 2007 and immediately loved the weather, open people, and tight community. I am confident in Swedish and deep relaxation and am comfortable with all types of people. I believe massage therapy should be a part of one's healthcare. I will listen intently to your needs, leaving you with a positive, more relaxed approach to your day. 

Karen Corbin--Staff Licensed Massage Therapist and Backup Aesthetician
I am a graduate of East West College of Healing Arts and bring an extensive blend of healing modalities to impart body awareness. 

I utilize therapeutic massage to discover and release tight tissue as well as stimulate energetic flow and hope to infuse a sense of calm and relaxation into the mind, body, and spirit of each client. 

I specialize in therapeutic bodywork, Swedish massage, cranialsacral, Shiatsu, wraps, body scrubs, have also practiced esthetics for 12 years and serve as a backup esthetician. 

Marissa Bauer--Staff Licensed Massage Therapist 
I have been practicing therapeutic bodywork and massage since 2006. I have studied extensively at the University of Oregon, Breema Center, and Boulder College of Massage Therapy, and am a licensed massage therapist, Breema bodywork practitioner and an Ashtanga yoga teacher.

I attended and graduated from BCMT as a certified massage therapist in 2008. While at BCMT, my education focused on, but was not limited to, orthopedic, sports, and prenatal massage, incorporating aspects of Swedish massage, shiatsu, and neuromuscular therapies including myofascial release, trigger point therapy and soft tissue manipulation. I completed internships at the University of Colorado working with Division I athletes in an orthopedic rehabilitation center.

As a Bodyworker, my intention is to foster and facilitate the innate healing abilities in others and promote health and wellness in their lives. By integrating trigger point therapy, cupping, myofascial release, and soft tissue manipulation, I work to restore function, manage pain, and reduce stress, inflammation, and tension in the body. I adapt each session to the client's specific needs and preferences, offering a restorative, deeply relaxing, therapeutic massage.

Barbara Rubin--Staff Licensed Massage Therapist
Whether there is a specific area of concern, or just a need for an oasis of tranquility, I mindfully personalize each session to provide a focused, thorough, and genuinely relaxing massage experience. 

My integrated method draws from Western & Eastern modalities including Deep Tissue/Trigger Point release; Myofascial Release; Acupressure; Shiatsu; Swedish Massage; and Tai Chi/Chi Kung, and yields successful relief from back pain, neck & shoulder pain, whiplash, headaches, limited range of motion, postural imbalances, & plantar fasciitis. 

I have practiced massage therapy continuously since completing training at LCC in 1996. 

"I am honored to be in a place and time to facilitate and encourage the well-being of others." 

Josh Evert--Staff Licensed Massage Therapist
I am a 15-year resident of Eugene who loves the outdoors. I studied at Lane Community College in the Massage Therapy program. I became licensed in 2016 and have a passion for helping people on their healing journey. My massage styles range from Swedish, stress-reducing, relaxation massage to deep tissue and Connective Tissue Therapy with a focus on occupational and sports injuries. I encourage my clients to be active participants in their healing process.

I am outgoing, empathetic, and compassionate; and I love meeting new clients and working with them to improve their health. 

Kelsey Frank--Staff Licensed Massage Therapist
As an Oregon native I decided to go to Denver School of Massage Therapy and continued my education at Utah College of Massage Therapy; gaining over a thousand hours of credit. I enjoy learning about the human body and the different ways to relieve pain. 

I have been in the massage therapy profession for 6 years and truly enjoy my work. I am passionate about the positive effects of therapy on the body and mind. My specialities are deep tissue, Swedish, trigger point, and integrated myofascial release. My goal is to always tailor my massage to suit the needs of my client.  

Jonathan Manley--Staff Licensed Massage Therapist
I'm from Kansas City and moved to Eugene eight years ago to pursue my Liberal Arts degree. I like to read, hike, run, cook, and ferment all sorts of things. 

I'm just beginning my practice. I'm passionate about understanding and helping bodies. I enjoy reading anatomy and theory books and pursue continuing education courses to help me better help people. I enjoy helping people who are having pain or limited function and use several different modalities in addressing these issues. I use Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Connective Tissue, and Myofascial Release techniques. 

My goal is to be attentive and present with my client, to help them toward better awareness of their body, increased function, relaxation, and less pain. 

Sara Sherman--Staff Licensed Massage Therapist
I met and fell in love with massage therapy during a difficult and painful pregnancy. Fascinated by anatomy and the healing power of touch, I completed my education at Lane Community College’s Massage Therapy Program. 

I focus on myofascial work, Trigger Point Therapy, injury rehabilitation, stress/anxiety reduction, and most importantly--client communication and education. I tailor every session to meet the individual needs of each client. My goal is for you to feel the benefits from the massage long after the session is over.

When I am not practicing or studying massage therapy I also enjoy yoga, hiking, reading, cooking, and spending time outdoors with my two children.

Jamal Sankari--Staff Licensed Massage Therapist
Raised in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge, I attended University of Washington with a BA in art history. After moving to Eugene in 1995, I studied at the Cascade Institute of Massage and was licensed in 1998. A perfect day usually includes coaxing flowers and vegetables to grow in the garden with my toddler son and teenage daughter. 

I am grounded and attentive to clients' needs and provide a warm and gentle touch with an emphasis on relaxation and healing. Well versed in medical/injury massage as well, I consider it a privilege to assist in the well being of others.

My modalities include Swedish, deep tissue, Reiki, trigger point, sports massage, hot stone, injury/motor vehicle accident, myofascial release, and many other styles gleaned from almost 20 years of massage. 

Shakti Gae--Staff Licensed Massage Therapist
I believe massage is one of the most valuable and potent healing modalities available to help people experience optimal wellness. I specialize in Swedish relaxation massage, deep tissue, and myofascial release to address a variety of issues including injury rehabilitation, stress reduction, pain relief, and support for chronic conditions. Adding nearly a decade of Reiki and energy work to compliment my massage skills, I provide treatments that are deeply relaxing and revitalizing. In 2009 I became a Reiki master teacher, and I love teaching Reiki and energy work classes to empower others on their healing path. 

Passionate about healing and learning, I am a committed practitioner and student of exploring how we can experience life at our fullest potential. Outside of work, I spend time enjoying family and friends, cooking, and being outdoors hiking and gardening. I am also dedicated to practicing yoga and dancing to cultivate strength and joy in my life. 

Ruth Danielson--Staff Licensed Massage Therapist
Having found my calling in the healing arts by putting her sixth grade English teacher to sleep during class, I began my career in massage therapy immediately after high school. In the seventeen years since, I've work at a ski resort spa, for a chiropractor, and for myself and maintain licenses in two states. 

I am passionate about helping people feel and live their best, which brought me to Eugene six years ago and to The Pearl in 2015. 

Jonny Hall--Staff Licensed Massage Therapist
I was licensed in Hawaii in 2015 and moved back to my former home town in 2016 when I tested and became an LMT in Oregon after spending 5 years on Maui.  I worked in several spa and medical clinics and enjoy fusing my variety of massage modalities to create the ultimate healing and therapeutic experience.  

My specialties include: Deep Tissue, Swedish, Lomi Lomi fusion, Trigger point therapy, Acupressure, & Prenatal massage.  I AM also about to begin my formal training in ART (Active Release Technique).  

When I'm not in the clinic I enjoys bicycle touring, camping, hiking, writing music, and traveling.  

Zeah Katz--Staff Licensed Massage Therapist
I've been practicing massage therapy since 2009. I am a structural therapist focusing on bringing the physical body back into alignment while also addressing the underlying root to personal issues. I have studied numerous modalities and you will receive an integrative, unique experience combining Eastern and Western ways of healing the body, mind, and soul. 

I started my massage journey  in Arizona and have found myself at home with my practice in Eugene, Oregon. You can expect a complete, relaxing, and deeply healing session with me.  

Keenan Tvedt--Staff Licensed Massage Therapist
I am a great believer in alternative holistic healing practices, and I bring an integrative, full body/mind/spirit approach to achieve relaxation and rejuvenation. I specialize in deeply relaxing Swedish modalities mixed with an ever-growing variety of techniques extracted from different styles such as deep myofascial work and sports massage. 

Each of my sessions are designed around the needs of my clients, so please come see me and we will create a treatment plan that works for you!

I am a native of Eugene, a rock climber, traveler, and lover of nature. Before entering the field of massage, I worked for many years in the outdoor industry leading trail crews and, more recently, taking youth on educational trips abroad to Latin America. I speak some Spanish--if it's your first language (or second) I'd love to practice!

 


Nails

Jill Hunt--Nail Manager, Staff Licensed Nail Technician & Aesthetician
I have been a pat of The Pearl family for nearly ten years as a nail technician and aesthetician. I've lived in the Eugene area for quite some time and live here with my husband and son.

Whether you are here to delight in a pedicure or manicure, it is my pleasure to help you relax or laugh away the stress of the day. Let me polish you until you shine!

Let me indulge you in a facial and cleanse away the dullness and replenish both your skin and your spirit. It truly is a wonderful thing to spend the time to renew yourself. 

Teal Thornton-Zahn Parra--Staff Licensed Nail Technician
I have been a nail technician for 8.5 years and enjoy being able to help when and where I can. I was born and raised in Eugene and attended school in the area, graduating with honors. I am very interested in healing and assessing how to best help clients with their needs.

Office

Jen Jensen--Manager
Having been born and raised in Southern Oregon, I am truly a part of this beautiful state.  After receiving my B.S. in Psychology at Oregon Institute of Technology, I dabbled in a few different careers (real estate being the longest stint) and, after years of consideration, finally made the move to Eugene in the summer of 2012 to begin working here at The Pearl.  Between the spa, all of the wonderful people I have encountered since being here and the welcoming atmosphere of this city, I have fallen in love with the holistic approach to health and would even dare to call myself a budding foodie now!  

Although not a practitioner myself, I am so delighted that my job affords me the opportunity to encourage and help facilitate the connection between body and mind with the use of healing touch.  Even more inspiring is being able to both experience and witness the before-and-after’s of this amazing field. 

During my spare time I can be found reading, hiking, and enjoying the vast selection of beer, wine, cuisine, music, and arts the Northwest has to offer with friends. 

Diana Glasser--Front Desk Staff Member
I was born and raised in Eastern Europe. I came to the US when I was eighteen for my undergraduate degree, and this year I graduated with a Masters of Science in Holistic Nutrition, hoping to start my own practice in the near future.

I have been at the Pearl Day Spa for over four years now. It has become like family to me. When I first started I was shy and my accent got thicker when I was nervous and spoke over the phone. I welcomed the challenge and worked hard at becoming in tune with our client's needs and improving my English. It is incredibly rewarding when someone sees a therapist that was the perfect fit for what they needed. It makes my day!

I am here to welcome clients, help them transition into their services and bid them goodbye afterwards. They value my input and I value their feedback. Scheduling well is my strongest super power at this job.

When I am not at work I am usually reading, hiking, cooking, or travelling in some crazy country with my husband. 

Sally M--Front Desk Staff Member
I am a Eugene native who graduated from the U of O with a degree in Anthropology and a minor in History. I spent the previous six years working in independent bookstores in Eugene and Boise. The only thing I love more than reading a good book is finding the next best book to read. When I'm not at work I enjoy reading, drinking tea, and spending time with my friends, family, and cats

Heather Shuler--Front Desk Staff Member
I was born and raised here in Eugene, Oregon. I have been with The Pearl since 2012 and I love it here. When I am not at work I enjoy being outside.

Samani Berry-Finance Manager & Insurance Billing Specialist  
Born in Eugene, raised in Northern Virginia, I returned to Oregon in high school and went on to graduate from South Eugene. I studied for a few years at the University of Oregon, only to find my passion in bodywork and healing. I began the massage therapy program at Lane and started working at The Pearl in the fall of 2015 and have found a new place to call home.

I love keeping up with my fast-paced department as well as getting to know all the practitioners here, who have so much to offer. The Pearl truly feels like a family - there is so much support, encouragement, and appreciation for one another and I am so grateful for everyone who has welcomed me with open arms.

Outside of school and work, I enjoy reading, yoga, being outdoors, and spending time with my family and friends. I also have a love for travel, learning about new cultures, and trying new and exciting foods. I hope to continue enjoying the opportunities life has to offer and to one day be at The Pearl as a massage therapist.

Sean Vierra--Spa Owner  
In the chaos of modern life, we all crave escape. Whether that escape is exercise, vacation, time in the garden, or time on a massage table, I encourage people to find time for rest, repair, and healing in their life. 

With many years of experience in team management, spa administration, and private practice building, I bring a diverse set of skills that equip me to serve not only clients, but also my staff and the personal life I love. 

As a self-admitted weekend warrior, I strongly encourage us to find our most productive selves as evolving from a place where we take time to focus on our desires, our health, and our quietness of mind.
