Licensed Massage Therapist
Helping, guiding, encouraging people’s bodies to release tension and heal, thanks to intentional touch, is what Licensed Massage Therapist Kandice Ringer brings to the massage tables here, at the Overleaf Lodge & Spa.
A licensed massage therapist since 2013, her experience is wide-ranging, with 20 years in health care and expertise in a variety of modalities, which she adapts to meet clients’ needs. She practices a Swedish-based massage “very intuitively.” She also has studied or attended workshops for acupressure, trigger points, Hawaiian lomilomi, Thai massage, cupping, aromatherapy and myofascial release.
“I have always been drawn to natural treatment options,” says Ringer, who has been inspired by her own journey of personal injuries and her health care quest to discover treatment options that are natural and effective.
Ringer has practiced massage in chiropractor offices, spas, a park recreation center, in private practice and care facilities, even at music festivals.
Born in Alaska, Ringer moved to Gold Beach, Oregon, when she was 7 years old. She has lived in Eugene since 2006 and is thrilled to be practicing massage therapy at the Overleaf Lodge & Spa.
“Yachats has always been my favorite Oregon Coast town. I love the vibe, the architecture of the homes, the artsy feel, the views and the beaches,” she says, adding, “I love being in nature, hiking in the mountains and walking on the beach.”
