Voted Best Massage in Portland in 2018, Open Hand care is trauma-informed, whole person health focused, body-positive, and gender affirming.
"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style."
We merge modern aesthetics with quality care to provide a relaxing yet unpretentious environment that caters to all your senses. Our attention to detail allows you to ease into the shifts that are happening on the table.
Open Hand is located in the historic Troy Laundry building at 221 SE 11th Ave, Suite 226.
Our beautiful brick building is home to dozens of small creative businesses. Walk up the warehouse stairs, wander down the often sunlit hallway and check out an epic view of Portland from the picture window. Through our glass doors, you’ll see our vibrant original mural by Adam Ciresi and the welcoming art of local painter Larry Yes.
While our front room is bright and colorful, our two treatment rooms are designed with a calming aesthetic. Each room is bathed in natural light from our 8-ft north-facing windows and adorned with an abundance of plants.
Our gorgeous, soft sheets are washed in organic, environmentally friendly detergents by a small & local, woman-owned business.
The Troy building has one unisex bathroom with multiple stalls and a door that locks for full privacy. We also have a women’s-only restroom.
When you schedule your appointment, you’ll receive accessible and gender affirming intake forms upon arrival. We’ll text and email you a session reminder with clear descriptions and information so you know exactly what to expect in your appointment.
We are open seven days a week.
