get into your body


Therapeutic Bodywork and Exercise in Portland Oregon

Do you experience frequent or chronic pain? Restrictions in movement, or a general sense of fatigue?  Has a recent injury, illness, or medical procedure kept you from being as active as you like? 

I’m Robert Head, Licensed Massage Therapist and Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher. I founded Bodywork Balance to help people relieve pain, improve performance, and move with greater vitality and ease.

I use craniosacaral therapy and myofascial bodywork to facilitate your body’s natural ability to heal and rebalance.  Additionally, I teach Pilates and therapeutic exercise to reinforce new movement patterns and gently condition your body for greater strength and daily performance.  Bodywork Balance combines these resources to empower you in a more integrated relationship to your body and a compassionate, proactive approach to your health.

My Vision

Bodywork balance is a therapeutic space offering mindful bodywork and exercise for greater health, awareness, and well-being. Regardless of your race, religion, sex, gender, or sexual orientation it is always my intention to meet you where you are as you are.
