I was raised in a rather unusual situation of having atheist parents while living in Logan, Utah, where 98% of the town were Later Day Saints. This gift of a full spectrum religious experience led me to delve into the nature world where I learned that plants, trees, animals and etheric worlds were all communicating with me. Praying privately, at a young age I came to understand that every one of us has our own path to Source, Creator, God, Goddess.
Mystical worlds of shamanism, divination, and the dreamtime invited me into 30 plus years of studying spiritualities from around the globe, I apprenticed with different healers, including a master flower essence teacher, Elizabeth Bolles.
I also was one of the founding members of Full Circle Temple, a Goddess Temple in Portland Or., which was open for 13 years starting in 1995.
An artist from birth, symbols and visions have been of utmost importance to me throughout my developing spirituality, assisting me with my intuition. I offers sessions of body healing, divination clarity work, and personalized flower essence blends. I am available to teach classes in flower essence, tarot, ritual 101, and unleashing your spiritual creativity.
“Long hours of working at a desk combined with intensive physical activities have historically left me living with chronic pain. Now, with regular massage sessions with Tia Ma I am able to live free of pain. Tia resolves muscle tensions using handcrafted massage butters and hot rocks before going deep to dissolve knots and ultimately relieve pain. Additionally, Tia is keenly attuned with the connections between the various parts of the human body and emotions. This understanding allows her to get to the root of and alleviate emotional or physical tensions. Post massage I am left feeling relaxed and pain-free for days. ~ Hollie Hall
“Bone spurs from osteoarthritis were causing muscles to twist my skeleton out of alignment. I was doing the PT-recommended strengthening exercises, but the pain remained. My gait was awkward and I was sleeping poorly. After 4 massages by Tia, and with the help of a book she lent me, I am much improved. Sometimes we talk during the massage, and I always leave with greater faith in the body’s ability to heal.” ~Meg Niederhofer
“Tia Ma gives the Best Massages! And I have been saying that for 10 years. At 68, I do not know how I would keep my body stretched and in proper alignment without Tia. What ever part of my body is causing trouble she fixes. I do not know what I would do without her!” ~Sharon McCloud
“A massage from Tia is like vacation for the body, soul, and spirit. She has found tension and released that I never knew existed and put my body back into a healthy and balanced state. She is very strong and will work intensely to relieve deep tension, but she will also be tender when that is needed. More than that though, time with Tia nourishes the soul and lifts the spirit. She has an amazing ability to identify and address the needs and wants of a person. I have at times arrived high-strung and tense and left relaxed and content, arrived beaten down and depressed and left invigorated and in high spirits. Tia does this in a very unpretentious way that feels completely comfortable. I have taken my mother, who is in her 60′s and has some body image issues, to see Tia, and she absolutely loved it. Everybody deserves some Tia-Time. In fact, I need to schedule an appointment.” May Lehmensiek
