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. 

Gwen Buckley--Staff Licensed Massage Therapist
Hailing from my small hometown in Alaska, I came to Eugene about a year ago to follow my destiny and begin my career in an industry that I have more faith in than any other healing modality. I have always loved human contact, and now I get to harness that love towards an end that can bring relief and aid to anyone. 

It is my personal goal to empower every last one of my clients with the touch, tools, and information they need to embrace the most peaceful state of living they want to achieve. I want to be a part of the force that changes the world for the better, and massage is what I have to offer people. I practice Swedish, Deep Tissue, and chair, with more to come!

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.  

Brittney Brown--Staff Licensed Massage Therapist
Initially licensed on June 23rd, 2008 I have been using therapeutic massage to help individuals make progress in their healing journeys for nearly ten years. I have a long held a passion for helping others in need and throughout my career, I have advocated for those in need.

Giving back to the community by way of donating my treatment proceeds to local fundraisers, volunteering at local wellness centers, hosting community classes, and through donation of my massage therapy treatments.

I specialize in Swedish Relaxation Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Hot Stone Therapy, Pregnancy Massage, and Injury Recovery. Much of my personal practice has involved working with clients that suffer from chronic pain or injury and those recovering from surgery.

Cezanne Bauer--Staff Licensed Massage Therapist
I grew up in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and spent much of my time in the ocean around Key Largo.  After high school, I moved to Boulder, Colorado to enjoy hiking and skiing in the mountains.  I got to know the aloha spirit living in Hawaii, but ended up falling in love with Oregon, and settled down in Eugene to raise my family.

In order to work with people in a meaningful way, I decided to pursue a career in massage therapy, and completed the program at Lane Community College.  I became passionate about the many ways massage can help manage pain and assist in reducing stress.  My massage style combines Swedish massage with myofascial release, deep tissue techniques, and acupressure points depending on the needs of the client.  I have taken additional coursework in prenatal massage, sports massage, aromatherapy, and aquatic therapy.

When I’m not practicing massage, you can find me laughing with my family, playing in the water, or surrounded by trees.  

Darcie Gibson--Staff Licensed Massage Therapist 

I have been a massage therapist since 2007 when I graduated from the American Academy of Massage Therapy in Manhattan, KS.  My work is an intuitive combination of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Reflexology and Trigger Point. After spending years of listening to the needs of my own body and those of my clients, I believe that the most important thing a therapist can offer is a mindful and compassionate presence which can facilitate the innate healing ability within the recipient.

Office

Ian Hughes (coming soon!)

Sally M--Administrative Team 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

Emily Sumstine--Front Desk Team Member
I was born and raised in Eugene, and I am happy to to be returning to Eugene after traveling around the world and pursuing teaching yoga as a career the past four years. I love working in a healing environment and helping to cultivate mindful self-care. I am happy to be back in Eugene and am looking forward to spending time with family and friends, going on hikes, and practicing all the yoga that time allows. 

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.
