Bio:

Massage Therapist Marco J Madian specializes in outcome based therapeutic massage.  Primary modalities used are myofascial release, pin and stretch, post isometric relaxation.  Marco focuses on work for healing and recovery from Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA), pre and post surgery, sports injury, chronic tension and repetitive action injuries.  The goal is to get to the issues and address them for the fastest possible recovery time.  In addition to the soft tissue therapies Marco actively gets his clients engaged in the healing process through teaching of basic exercises and stretches to aid in the recovery process though muscle activation and stretching.  Additional treatment specialties include intraoral work to address TMJD, tinnitus and other jaw, facial and ear related muscle issues.

Marco started his massage practice in January 2009 as an independent at his location in SE Portland.  He was almost immediately working on Motor Vehicle Accident clients of his own and assisting other practitioners with their case loads.  In 2012 Marco started splitting time between his SE location and his NW 23rd location as well.  In August 2014, he combined his two locations and split energies moving his practice to 2100 NE Broadway Ste 225 in Portland, adding his energies and medical massage experience to the group of practitioners at The Asha Wellness Clinic.

Marco brings a unique perspective and knowledge to his massage practice.  His history as a dancer gives him a detailed and profound understanding of how the body functions in a balanced and efficient manner.  He incorporates this insight into how he works and uses techniques to engage and stretch muscles, tendons and ligaments.  Additionally he partners with his clients in the process by teaching as many self treatment techniques as he can from self massage, stretching and isolation exercises to retrain muscles and areas that are problematic.  Additionally Marco spent time with a local furniture manufacturer that was specifically focused on ergonomically friendly work stations.  This understanding helps with making recommendations on how to set up friendlier work station environments which can greatly reduce daily chronic stress issues.  This combined with his passion for medical massage and getting to the issues creates a truly effective therapeutic massage experience.
