I purchased a gift certificate for my son (I live out of area). She wasn't there when he arrived, wouldn't return calls to reschedule or refund the $105. Took it to BetterBusinessBureau for help in resolution; she wouldn't respond to them either.

Through massage, I typically seek two pretty basic results: relaxation and the loosening of tight muscles. I went to Miriam on a similar quest, with an added complication of back pain that another massage therapist had been unable to remedy. Miriam came through for me on every account. She is wonderfully knowledgeable about a wide variety of massage techniques, and she was able to adapt her approach to what my body needed. That knowledge combined with her intuitive sense for healing made her the perfect medicine for me. I left my appointment relaxed and with looser muscles, and also feeling much more deeply healed. Thank you, Miriam.

Miriam is a wonderful massage therapist. She has a true intuitive understanding of the needs of the body. I felt completely cared for and received a wonderful hour on her table. I have had many massages in my life and would rank my time with Miriam as among the best. Many thanks!

I have never experienced such poor customer service in my life. Miriam cancelled my appointment the day of the massage without any explaination. Since, it was being paid for with a gift cert, Miriam agreed to refund me the amount of the cert. since I was unable to rescedule. This all seemed very kind and ethical. Let me emphasis "seemed kind and ethical." Miriam did not send my refund when she said she would, nor did she return phone calls. Understand, I was nothing but understanding, untill this started to drag on for weeks. I finally left another message, saying I would have to result to other collection methods if she wouldn't return my calls, and guess what? She actually called back! She said that she had been sick, and would put the check in the mail the following Monday. I said I understood, but even a phone call to let me know what was going on would have been greatly appreciated. Well, the following week, still no check until Friday. I thought, OK better late than never. I opened the envelope and she had only refunded HALF OF THE PROMISED AMOUNT! I have called her several times since, as have my friends who purchased the gift certificate, and she won't answer the calls, or respond in any way.

I have dealt with many professionals in the healing arts, and I have never run across someone with this type of poor morals and ethics. I consider her acts to be very dishonest, and all of this would have not happened if she had just been true to her word. I trust people (especially in this type of field) to speak and honor the truth. This was absolutely unbelievable.

Miriam is without a doubt the best I have ever experienced! My husband and I have homes in Los Angeles as well as Portland, and although we have been treated by some of the most famous and highly recognized professionals in Los Angeles, we ONLY go to Miriam in Portland. She treated my husband for back and neck problems that he had experienced for years and those other famous folks couldn't give him much relief (and what relief he did get didn't last for more than a day or two). Under Miriam's care, he has been pain-free for many months and still travels to come see Miriam about once a month for maintenance. In my case, I had been experiencing knee and hip pain for almost 20 years and was told to get surgery. Once Miriam started working on me, the results were nothing short of a miracle. She also provides great insight into the physical causes of a person's pain (comments about my incorrect posture or seating position) that make a huge difference in maintaining my well-being. What Miriam has isn't just a learned skill. It's an art as well as a gift. Thank you, Miriam!! Keith and I love you!

Pros: Many different skills and techniques

Cons: Unfortunately, there is only one Miriam! She can't be duplicated!

.

I see Miriam approximately once a month due to my grueling work schedule (i.e. 12-14 hours shifts on nights), which results in a highly stressed body and frequent back pain/discomfort. I have been seeing Miriam since I moved back to the Portland Metro area (from Boston) in 2003. Miriam has very gifted hands and has the ability to find my problem areas right away. She knows how to relax my muscles and is very attentive to my needs. Additionally, she has created a comfortable and inviting environment at her new location. I would recommend Miriam to anyone with chronic back problems or to anyone interested in a relaxing afternoon or evening away from work or stress.

Cons: I wish I could visit Healing Tree Massage more often.

Miriam & Elizabeth provided perfect massages for me & my husband. The room was cozy, warm & comforting - the street sounds magically disappeared during our session. The heated bed & hot stones were delightful but their skills were remarkable. They were very attentive to the places we discussed beforehand - each of us had a slightly different experience based on our needs. Their building is just a few blocks from the streetcar route, and very near great shops & restaurants.

Pros: specialized massage, comforting atmosphere, good location

I've just returned from my first massage with Miriam at the Healing Tree Massage. The massage was so relaxing that I'm surprised that I can raise my fingers to type. Miriam is a gifted therapist and has created a beautiful, warm and comforting environment for her practice. She takes care to heated massage bed, hot stones (I think) to warm her hands during the massage and a hot towel wrap for the head and face.
This was a Christmas present from my boyfriend. I've already gushed to him about this being the "best present ever"!

Pros: Excellent massage, Knowledgable therapis, Beautiful studio

Cons: I'm addicted

A friend of mine and I were looking for a "girls night out" and we wanted to get a massage and go out for dinner. I was going through IVF and I hoped the healing effect of massage might help. I loved how Miriam was available at the last minute, and in the evening, AND to massage two people! She can usually have another therapist there, for couples, but so spontaneously her other person wasn't available that night. She did a wonderful job all by herself though, much to my surprise. At one point we discovered she was holding onto a bar - attached to the ceiling I guess - and walking on our backs! It was great! She also seemed quite knowledgeable and insightful about healing (also did some reflexology), and concentrated on my getting pregnant. I DID get pregnant! :-)

I can't find the words when I try to describe this wonderful place...my boyfriend and I went there on our first weekend of our 21 day cleansing diet...so we were tense, fatigued and ready to relax. We did the 90 minute massage and couldn't believe how we felt afterwards. Miriam and her associate knew exactly what we wanted and only had to ask a few questions....rather they responded to what they felt in our bodies. They used hot stones, wicked massage techniques and hot towels wraps. I would highly recommend this lil' retreat on 23rd.

Miriam has been featured in SPA magazine, and now I know why. Her massage is the best. Her hands are magnificient. I have had a couples massage, which I highly recommend. A lot of couples massages are a waste of money, but hers is terrific! Highly, highly recommend.

I started seeing Miriam after I was rear ended in an auto accident... previously I had been seeing a chiropractor for 5 months without much relief. A friend recommended Miriam and Healing Tree Massage... after 2 sessions with her my pain was completely gone! She is an amazing healer... and has such a wonderful way about her. My pain is gone, so now when I see her (at least 1-2 times a month) I really enjoy just being pampered....hot stones, salt scrubs, hot towel wraps, mini facials... everything she does is truly amazing. I feel like a queen! Oh and the Ashiatsu bar therapy is really excellent too....very relaxing.

Miriam is amazing. There are few people who are gifted in a way such as Miriam. She floats through the room, is so knowledgable and I believe has the kindest hands anywhere. Whenever she works on me I feel like I am going to have a brand new life when I leave. She is amazing!

Pros: Easy Appointments, Grand Talent

The wonderful things said in the other reviews are true - Healing Tree Massage is a one-of-a-kind treat. I feel blessed to have discovered this Portland jewel. I felt comfortable and honored as Miriam fearlessly dove into the most stressed, unbalanced parts of my body. I enjoyed every moment of it, and left feeling more myself then I have in months!

I followed Miriam from a well-known spa to her independently owned office on 23rd. She's fabulous. She combines the spa qualities that I love with the ability to fix whatever's wrong with my body. I love her! I will stay with her as long as I'm in Portland and would return just to see her if I moved away. She is the most knows more about what she does than anyonw I've ever been to before. Also, the parking was really easy to find. Try her. You'll love her too.

I'm a web developer and spend the majority of my life at a computer.
I've had quite a few massages and bump from masseuse to masseuse - it's partly because I'm never fully happy with my massage afterwards.
I went to Miriam at Healing Tree Massage and scheduled my next massage at the end of my first -- it was just lovely. She did a few things that I haven't experienced before w/ other masseuses (involving her use of hot rocks, hot towells, very light skin sensation + deep massage, etc). When I left I was definitely on a natural high. Going in I felt like there was a leaden shot stuck in my lower back, and I was a shotput lighter walking out the door.

She also has a way of making you feel very comfortable throughout the whole experience (before and afterward can sometimes feel awkward).
Highly recommended!

I am an interior designer from Phila. After a long airplane trip to see a client I was very STRESSED. Some of my furniture for the client came damaged and to make a long story short I needed a massage. I found Healing Tree Massage and Miriam made the stress come out of my body and fixed my whole body and brain. She is an expert and knows exactly what I needed. She has a gentle personality , but knew just how much pressure I needed on my sore bones. She is the best I ever had and when I come back to Portland I will be sure to make an advanced appt. I know it sounds like an ad but TRY HER YOU'LL LOVE HER.
