Why Choose Mudra
Mudra Massage is owned and operated by Nancy & Jeremy DeLong. Originally founded by Nancy as a solo massage practice in 2004, Mudra has grown to include a diverse and talented massage staff, a training studio for Ashiatsu workshops, and a floatation tank. Nancy’s passion for massage has brought her on a journey from deep-tissue expert to certified Ashiatsu instructor & therapist.
In 2010, Jeremy introduced Nancy to floating and she soon agreed that an isolation tank would be a great addition to Mudra’s list of services. So as it went, they married business plans and then married each other. It’s been a harmonious union ever since. Floating in combination with massage proves to be a highly effective method of dispelling chronic pain and stress. At the end of the day, they are thrilled to see their customers leave feeling blissful and to know they’ve played an active role in helping that person feel renewed inside and out.
Nancy and Jeremy are very grateful to own a business in the heart of Portland. The people of this city are ahead of the curve when it comes to alternative health and wellness. Portlanders enjoy healthy food, explore consciousness in float tanks, do yoga and commute to work on bikes. As a result, Mudra Massage has some of the warmest and happiest customers you could possibly come across! Mudra Massage owes all its growth and success to these wonderful patrons. Mudra encourages you to be healthy, be balanced and be yourself! Be at Mudra Massage for relaxation and renewal...
Yours in health & wellness,
Nancy & Jeremy DeLong
Although it feels like a spa when you enter Mudra Massage, we prefer not to place ourselves in a category where upselling expensive products and services is the goal. Our focus and approach is on wellness and regular maintenance of massage and floatation therapy. Most of our clients continue to come to Mudra for monthly or bi-weekly treatments. Our prices are affordable and comparable to private practice massage rates and we also offer package rate discounts for those that wish to come in regularly.
No Therapist Cruelty
When you enter Mudra Massage, you get the immediate sense that the staff members appreciate their positions. We all take pride in providing exceptional service to our clients and work together as a team to do so. Our therapists are highly trained in the massage field and are treated as licensed professionals instead of micro-managed employees. We are very fortunate to employ such a unique group of talented therapists and we do our best to make it a flexible and comfortable work environment for them to thrive in. One way this is done is by giving our therapists the freedom to make their own schedules. We encourage them to have adequate breaks between each massage session, go on relaxing vacations, and we pay respectable commissions for the work they perform. As a rule, we never pressure our staff to push products or services. Therapists at Mudra are content because the atmosphere is relaxed, the clientele is pleasant, and it is a space where they are allowed the freedom to be creative with their individual skill sets.
Massage and Floatation
Unlike spas that have an overwhelming menu of services, we pride ourselves in specializing in our chosen field(s) of expertise. Massage and floatation compliment each other in a very measurable way. Both services have proven to be very successful in treating chronic injury, muscle pain/stiffness, stress, and sleep disorders. When combined in a single session, and especially if the massage is an Ashiatsu treatment, clients will reap the maximum benefits from each.
Mudra is locally owned and operated by husband and wife Nancy and Jeremy DeLong. Originally founded by Nancy as a solo massage practice in 2004, Mudra has grown to house several talented licensed massage therapists, a training studio, and a floatation tank. Both owners are very involved in the daily operation of the business and often times you will see them running the front counter and greeting customers. They take pride in housing some of the best therapists in Portland, Oregon and facilitating in an unforgettable massage and float experience.
Quality not Quantity
If you sign up for an hour massage and arrive on time, you will receive sixty minutes of actual massage time.
This fact sets us apart from most spas and massage franchises that book on the hour and cut massage sessions short, rushing you and the therapists in and out of a treatment room. At Mudra, we allow thirty minutes in between each massage session, giving the therapist ample time to do a thorough intake with each client, change linens, and take a small break. We do our best to make up time for those running late, but showing up fifteen or more minutes late could result in the massage being cut short.
What To Expect
Once you’ve been greeted by a friendly staff member, you will be escorted to our tranquil wait room where you may relax and unwind before your treatment. Help yourself to complimentary tea, chocolate or fruit while you enjoy reading a magazine or book. Wi-Fi is available for those that wish to use the internet.
Before your treatment you may select a pure essential oil blend to add aromatherapy to the session. Steamed towels are also used during the massage, applying soothing heat therapy to sore or tired muscles. These amenities are all provided at no additional charge.
Our treatment rooms are exceptionally quiet, with no windows or traffic noise. Each room is equipped with a deluxe sound system; massage table warmers, hot towels and candle lights setting the tone for a relaxing and unforgettable experience.
Our facility is beautifully decorated and includes artwork by local artists. It is clean, quiet, and family friendly. Come in and give us a try sometime, whether you’re looking to pamper yourself or a loved one on a special occasion, or you need regular body maintenance for chronic pain or injury, we exist to accommodate your needs.
A valid credit card will be required to hold your reservation. You may cancel or change your appointment up to 24 hours in advance of your treatment without penalty. For changes or cancellations less than 24 hours in advance, you will be charged a 50% forfeiture fee. If you fail to show up for your appointment or cancel within one hour or less, you will be charged in full. Treatment time is not extended for late arrivals. If you have an online voucher, Groupon, Save Local or gift certificate and do not provide a 24-hour cancellation notice your voucher will be marked as used.
All sales (gift certificates, series packages, prepaid massage and/or float services) are final and non-refundable. However, they are transferrable and may be gifted to another person for any reason.
