PRACTITIONERS

Danielle Reghi, LAc #AC183536

Danielle Reghi is originally from Hawaii.  Growing up on the beautiful island of Kauai she was introduced to natural medicine modalities as a way to maintain balanced health and wellness.  She was not introduced to the idea that someone could make a career out of the natural health and wellness field till she moved to Seattle Washington after college.  Working in the Hotel industry in Seattle she began giving her co workers tips on diet and stress relieving practices. She began to see the effect that small changes could make on the working professional, and how satisfying that could be to a person.

From Seattle Danielle found her way to Oregon College of Oriental Medicine to study Traditional Chinese Medicine here in Portland.  Danielle graduated from OCOM in 2016 with a Masters in Chinese Medicine.  After OCOM she traveled to Nepal to volunteer with the Nepal Acupuncture Relief Project.  She spent two months in rural Nepal treating patients with an array of symptoms from Muscular to digestive, to women’s health and more.  In a matter of 7 weeks she was able to treat 710 patients and see some real results and progress be made, which added to her excitement for her new career path.

Michelle “Shelzey” Tuffias, LMT

Bodywork is a blessing. I am blessed to develop my career in a field that is both mentally stimulating and healing. I have studied Deep Tissue, Structural Integration, Thai, Swedish Massage and Basic Cranial Sacral Techniques. Bodywork allows me to consistently learn and explore the body, an endless discovery. As I learn, I facilitate growth for my clients by connecting them to their own bodies. This will change a person’s overall daily function.  Nurturing and healing led me to my path of bodywork. At a young age I picked up informal, yet intuitive massage. This comfort with human touch helped me listen deeply to the physical body. I bring this intuitive approach to my current practice. I listen to the verbal needs of my clients, with close attention to body movement and non-verbal cues. This helps me cultivate a unique session, with fluidity from area to area for each individual. I truly look forward to working with each human.
