Cypress Mendoza, L.M.T.
For sixteen years, I worked as a massage therapist for a busy chiropractic clinic in the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle. I spent the majority of these years on a shamanic path, learning the old ways of healing from several different teachers. I believe education and self-care are very important for optimal healing.
When I’m not working, I love to spend time outside gardening, hiking, and camping – even when it’s raining! I also love to cook and talk about food.
When I enrolled at Ashmead College in 1999, I knew that this work would be the door that led to everything else in my life. Since then, massage has been my passion.
After graduation, I started working in a chiropractic office. My long-term working relationship with these chiropractors gave me a multi-layered understanding of the human body. During my sixteen years of employment at this clinic, I had the opportunity to hone my therapeutic massage and injury treatment skills. In 2014, I opened my private practice closer to home.
I’m fascinated by the current research on fascia, and I know that this subtle work has a profound effect on the body. I enjoy being able to give quality massage to everybody that walks through the door – whether you are a weekend warrior, or you have a spinal fusion.
I accept most major private health insurance plans, including Premera and Regence. I also take Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and worker compensation claims (L&I).
My continuing education courses include Thai massage, QiGong, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, Cranial Sacral, and myofacial release.
