About Harmony Massage

Talicia Brown, LMT, NCTMB, BA

Talicia grew up in San Jose, California, and received her undergraduate degree in Biology from Reed College in Portland, Oregon.

With a long history of work in social services, education, and the environment, Talicia was intrigued by the challenge of running Outside In’s free medical clinic in Portland. With this experience Talicia organized the free clinic open to homeless, low income, and under-insured people in the Portland metropolitan area. It also gave her her first glimpse into the world of complementary and alternative health care, as Outside In specialized in the complementary care of medical doctors, naturopathic doctors, acupuncturists, chiropractors, and massage therapists.

After sampling therapies in each field, Talicia was led to attend massage school because of her strong background in biology and the sciences, her love of on-going patient care, and her kinesthetic desire to assist other’s through hands-on work. While finishing her training, she con-currently worked as a Chiropractic Assistant for additional experience.

Talicia is a graduate of Lane Community College’s Massage Technician Program in Eugene, Oregon. The focus of her practice includes Swedish, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone, Reiki, Acupressure, Trigger Point Therapy, Thai Yoga Massage, Myofascial Release, and Hawaiian Lomi Lomi. Talicia is a Licensed Massage Therapist with the State of Oregon (#8193) and nationally certified (NCTMB), and is a member of American Massage Council, with whom she holds professional liability insurance.

Talicia has personally experienced many bodywork modalities, and is highly recognized in her ability to asses her clients and to refer them to other healing practitioners when needed. Talicia is a student of metaphysics and a lover of the arts. Talicia has been a dancer all of her life, and enjoys all forms of movement, including yoga and tai chi.

Talicia is happy to integrate her keen intuition, her ability to listen to her clients and their bodies, and years of intensive training in massage and bodywork into each individualized treatment.


Talicia encourages feedback and communication from her clients and understands and trusts the inner healer within each individual.

Working with clients, Talicia relies on subtle body cues and careful listening to tailor the massage experience to their unique preferences and needs. She employs a range of techniques from gentle effleurage to intense, deep tissue work. While Talicia has a loyal following of clients who have been with her from the beginning, she also welcomes, and particularly enjoys, working with people for whom massage is a new experience. Talicia is happiest when her clients leave feeling deeply relaxed and somehow changed with a new sense of possibility.
