THE TEAM

We work together as a healing arts collective -- each licensed practitioner works independently as contractors within the walls of Palaquin.  We offer a variety of healing modalities including Thai yoga massage, Swedish, deep tissue, myofascial therapy, and trauma-informed mind-body treatments.

Will Hallett, LMT#18758, CHt

Owner -- Specializes in Thai Yoga Massage, and trauma-informed mind-body treatments

​​​​​​​I grew up in Salem, Oregon the son of a tree farmer and a veterinarian, surrounded by animals and nature.  I injured my back at age 12, and had to undergo several surgeries which corrected the initial problem, but caused many others in the process and left me in severe chronic pain.  Doctors could only offer prescription painkillers for the rest of my life as a treatment.

Refusing to accept this as my only solution, I began a lifelong search for natural ways to manage chronic pain.  This search became my passion, and ultimately my career.  I studied sports medicine in college, and later massage therapy, clinical hypnotherapy, and neuro-linguistic programming.

When I was introduced to Thai massage, I instantly fell in love and sought out masters in Thailand, Oregon, and Costa Rica for my studies.

This beautiful modality truly healed me -- I went from managing chronic pain for 20 years to reducing and eliminating it.  I am so thankful that I get to share this knowledge with my clients.  

Matthew Purkiewicz, LMT#16219

Specializes in Myofascial and Structural Bodywork Modalities

Since graduating from the School of Holistic Health in 2004 I've followed the best ideas I could find for helping clients through chronic pain and tension for the purpose of improving structure and function.  
In 2005 I attended the Kinesis Myofascial Integration training which has been the single greatest influence on my massage practice. This method is concerned with dealing with patterns across body which can mean working quite distally from where the client reports pain.  
Many other modalities have informed my practice but the core orientation is always to finding what method best suits the client's stated outcome and working from there.

Specializes in Swedish, deep tissue, and myofascial modalities

I practice Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Cupping and Chair Massage. I am happy to provide any of these services along with a fusion massage incorporating more than one modality.

 

I see the importance of massage and stretching to prevent injury and enhance recovery both in sport and as a part of routine self care. I encourage open communication to ensure you get the most out of your session with me. My job is to listen to you and to listen to your body.

I graduated from the Oregon School of Massage in 2012.  In my free time I am passionate about running, biking, yoga and exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I am a bilingual Spanish speaker and welcoming and affirming of all people.
