About us

Anja Middelzick, LAC, LMTAnja website pic

In 2004 I founded Healing Path Holistic Medicine. My own health challenges turned me to more natural therapies like Massage, Nutrition, and Oriental Medicine for preventative care.

Today I am a healthy mom, and have been a practitioner of natural health for over 26 years.

In 2002 I received my Masters Degree in Oriental Medicine from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, in Portland, OR.

I help men and women with a variety of different kinds of pain: low back, neck, shoulder, knee, sometimes to  help them avoid surgery altogether. I have developed educational programs to go along my acupuncture practice to serve those in pain the best.   Another way I serve my female patients is to help them through menopause by alleviating their unwanted symptoms without using drugs. My special interest is between the nutritional/dietary connection and chronic/degenerative health problems, I offer a variety of resources/classes/ and treatments to keep you going without medical intervention.

Oriental Medicine and Nutritional Therapy work well together, as they share the belief of “no person is alike, and therefore each condition should be treated according to the bio-individuality of each person.” I am honored to help you on your healing path.

My Massage experience began in 2001 after a major incident left me with pain and dysfunction in my hands and arms. The only things that were effective were Acupuncture and  Massage Therapy. 

I was inspired to follow a path that would allow me to help others, the way I was helped. Since then, promoting  well-being  through Massage Therapy and health education has been my main focus in life. 

Through the years I have learned and integrated a variety of manual therapy tools and techniques.  My approach is to use the right tool or method to support the individual needs of my clients. 

I subscribe to the following: there are many paths to wellness.With that in mind, I make it my goal is to find the ideal, effective session for you.

I received my Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature from the University of Colorado-Boulder.  After realizing my path in the healing arts, I completed a 600 hour Massage Training program at East West College in Portland, OR in 2006. My ongoing training includes working with Plantar Fasciitis, Ortho-Bionomy release for the Spine and Pelvis, Advanced Myofascial Techniques for Sciatica & Disc Issues, Reiki Healing 1st Degree, Thai Massage for the table, Somatic Dysfunction as a Contributing factor in Head and Neck Pain, and Massage Cupping. I’m always on the lookout for the next educational opportunity to add more tools to my toolbelt for crafting the ideal massage session for each client.

I am grateful for the opportunity to help clients on their journey to inhabiting a healthier, vibrant and more functional body. When I am not giving massage or taking care of my children and dog, i can be found rock climbing, hiking, swimming, doing yoga, knitting, reading, gardening, fermenting and obsessing about the latest natural minimalist footwear.

Marissa Hanthorn, LAc, LMT

Gentle healing modalities are central to Marissa’s practice, which provides a fusion of Japanese-style acupuncture with her unique style of biodynamic massage. This kind of bodywork uses cranialsacral and myofascial work to listen deeper into the body and guide the deep tissue therapy. Marissa is regularly amazed by how much insight the body holds within the various systems and layers of tissue, and continues to learn from her patients. She also uses homeopathy, nutrition, nature cure, Chinese herbal medicine, and other methods of Chinese medicine to help her patients regain health and comfort through their own innate vital forces. Marissa treats a wide variety of conditions, and specializes in mental health, women’s health, digestive issues, and chronic pain.

Marissa graduated from the National University of Natural Medicine with her Master of Science in Oriental Medicine and Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, and is awaiting licensure as an ND. Studies of Chinese herbal medicine and qigong in China has provided a deeper perspective of this traditional medicine that is essential to her practice in the healing arts. Marissa is a native Oregonian and loves all it has to offer outdoors. She also loves yoga, gardening, fermenting foods, and playing with her dog Howie.
