Jenny Harvey-Smith, Owner, LMT

Jenny Harvey-Smith LMT

Jenny founded Holistic Massage of Hood River in 2004. With thirteen years experience as a licensed massage therapist, three years experience working at a physical therapy clinic, a masters degree in psychology, and specific training in yoga, pilates, and intuitive healing, Jenny has a great awareness of the body-mind connection and how both injuries and emotions affect the body.

Jenny incorporates a variety of techniques into her massage therapy sessions, including trigger point, deep tissue, therapeutic stretching, hand and foot reflexology, shiatsu, myokinetic therapy, myofascial release, energetic techniques, and hot stone therapy.

Originally from Seattle, Jenny moved to the Gorge in 2000 to ski patrol at Mt. Hood Meadows, and worked as a pro-patroller until 2009. She has a passion for being outdoors as well as spending time with family and cooking good food. When not in the office, she’s likely out looking for wind on the river or the coast, finding powder stashes on the mountain, hitting up the mountain bike trails, or recharging in a local yoga class!

Jenny is currently not accepting new clients.

Alexandra Robinson, LMT

Alexandra Robinson LMT

As an active outdoor enthusiast, Alexandra understands the value of massage for overcoming personal injury and the immense benefits it provides as part of a preventative self-care routine. She has a nurturing and therapeutic touch and enjoys providing deep focused work on the body, engaging with the breath to facilitate tissue release and overall relaxation. Alexandra enjoys using a variety of techniques during a massage, incorporating Thai, deep tissue, stretching, and trigger point. She appreciates the benefits of a dynamic massage experience to actively help release muscles and tissues.

Alexandra is a graduate from East West College of the Healing Arts. She is a compassionate and caring massage therapist, eager to empower and educate her clients. A mindful and communicative practitioner, Alexandra is dedicated to assisting her clients’ emotional and physical needs. She happily meets clients wherever they may be on their healing and self-care path.

Alexandra made the move out of Portland to Hood River to be closer to the activities she loves to pursue in the Gorge. When she is not at the clinic, you can find her in a yoga class, riding her bike, hiking on the many trails that abound in the Northwest, and dreaming of her next long distance backpacking trip.

Comice Leet, LMT

Comice Leet LMT

Comice studied massage therapy at East West College of Healing Arts. She specializes in deep tissue, fascial release, Swedish and Thai massage. Comice also uses cupping therapy to help release especially painful hypertonic tissue and stimulate the healing flow of fluids and energy to stagnant areas.

Comice combines the important knowledge of muscles and connective tissues with the fact that the body is a single system needing a more holistic approach to healing. She focuses on your complaints while simultaneously acknowledging that a neck pain may actually be stemming from a foot imbalance or even an emotional trauma and thus will address a more broad treatment than just your neck.

Her style can be light or deep, depending on your feedback. She finds that though we are tempted to force an issue to be well, the most effective long term treatments are ones where we slow down and match the speed of the tissue melt, letting the body set the pace rather than our eager brains. You will walk away from your massage feeling deeply relaxed and may not even notice the depth she has gone as she moves with great patience. She encourages you to test your range of motion, or give your discomfort a number before your massage, and then again afterward to truly be aware of the change that has taken place.

Besides being passionate about healing through massage, Comice is also passionate about her family, physical activities in nature like hiking and swimming, traveling the world and dancing.

Eli Camero, LMT

Eli Camero LMT

Eli Camero is a Hood River native who grew up exploring the Columbia Gorge. Outdoor life has always been a favored pastime. He enjoys kite surfing, gardening, and foraging. Eli graduated from Oregon School of Massage in 2013 with an eastern focus.

Eli’s style is gentle, flowing, and incorporates deep, sustained compression and stretching. He specializes in Thai massage, and also offers deep tissue massage, Reiki, and hot stone treatments. Clients consistently report being in a deeply relaxed zen state after a session with Eli!

His continuing education with David Weitzer in Portland was his first introduction to Thai massage. He quickly became connected to the practice and healing arts lineage. During his 10 month travel in Asia he studied Shivananda yoga, Vipassana meditation and massage. His Thai massage courses near Chiang Mai, Thailand with Master Pichest Boonthumme inspires his current focus.

Thai Massage is a mat based session. The client wears light, loose comfortable clothing. It is composed of passive stretches with sustained compressions. The technique allows the receiver to experience relaxation through a deep and gentle assistance. The use of gentle rocking, thumb pressure and rhythmic compression helps the body to be prepared for the stretches so that the person feels “invited” to receive the stretch. The treatment style is slow, deliberate, gentle, and non¬invasive.

Raelynn Keron, LMT

Raelyn Keron LMT

Raelynn believes that every person walks a different path in life and therefore has different massage needs. In her work, she strives to listen to each person carefully and work with him or her to find those needs and tailor each session accordingly, whether the needs are physical, mental, or emotional. She is capable of working deeply or very lightly, depending on individual situations. Her massages are relaxing, peaceful experiences, whether for injury treatment or stress relief, as she believes the body is better able to heal itself in a more relaxed state.

Raelynn completed her massage training at Healing Hands School of Holistic Health in Escondido California in 2013, where she gained a solid foundation in anatomy and began to develop her unique, intuitive style. She initially had her own practice in California before moving back to the Pacific Northwest and obtaining her Oregon massage license in 2014. Since then she has gained valuable experience in both clinical and spa settings, developing a style that is deeply therapeutic yet highly relaxing. She uses a combination of deep tissue, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, shiatsu, sports and Swedish massage. She is also trained in hot stone massage, prenatal massage and will soon add cupping to her repertoire.

While Raelynn is new to the Gorge, she is excited to become part of this special community. She and her husband own a small plot of land in White Salmon and have a dream of developing it into a large permaculture garden. So when she’s not working with clients, Raelynn is likely out digging in the dirt, reading about permaculture, or hiking out in the woods to get inspiration from the natural wonders all around us.
