Amy Rose, LMT

Amy Rose, the owner of Sevati, has been a massage therapist since 1997. She has worked in premier spas in the Portland area as well as with acupuncturists, naturopaths, and chiropractors. She uses this wealth of experience to create a truly unique massage, tailored to your individual needs.

Amy firmly believes in the body's innate ability to heal and is humbled to help facilitate this process. She has deepened her knowledge over the years with continuous studies of Anatomy and Physiology, Deep Tissue Techniques for the Neck, Cupping, and Gua Sha.

In her free time, Amy has been working hard on her property with her husband to turn it into a sustainable homestead. Between feeding the chickens, clearing the blackberries, and building new planter beds in the garden she keeps quite busy!

Teresa Collins, LMT

Teresa is also one of the owners at Sevati. She discovered massage in childhood. Noticing her parents and eventually herself seeking relief from pain, she turned to massage and yoga. She studied at the Florida School of Massage and has practiced yoga with many different teachers across the country.

Immediately after school she found her niche at a chiropractic rehab facility inside a local gym. This encouraged her love of fitness and her focus of her skills in injury rehab, deep tissue, and trigger point massage. 

Teresa has made health education her an integral part of her life. A recent graduate of Portland State University where she majored in Health Studies and minored in Biology, she has incorporated her knowledge of the body and it's structural depth to offer a truly holistic massage that are a combination of relaxation and structural assessment that help ease stress, relieve pain, and relax the mind to a achieve a truly healing experience.

Over the last decade Portland has inspired her obsession with bicycles and and alternative transportation advocacy. When she's not working, she is traveling the Pacific Northwest with her dog Rita to mountain bike, volunteer with local non-profits, and enjoying nature. She enjoys being crafty, remodeling homes, and taking long naps in the park on sunny days.

Sevati Massage is the culmination of Amy Rose and Teresa Collins' experiences in the massage industry. After having worked in multiple settings she and Teresa set out to create a beautiful, calm oasis that was centrally located, and dedicated to providing the highest quality services and products. 

We are passionate about using all natural and ethically resourced products like Dottera Essential Oils and Organic Coconut oil for our massages and we strive to create a workplace for our employees that honors their values, experience, and voices.

We moved from our humble, small space in the Pearl District to our current home in the heart of downtown next to the library in December of 2016. Here we have been able to expand into our three room suite and offer other women owned small businesses the opportunity to grow their practices and offer aesthetic services that perfectly complement the bodywork that we offer.
