Lola is a kind, lovable and driven young woman born and raised in our wonderful state of Oregon. She loved growing up in both the city and the country, getting the best of both worlds. As a toddler in 1998, she was adopted by her foster mother who raised her and taught her to heal her aches and pains in her free time. In turn they built a much closer bond. Over the years she built up the strength to massage and a liking to it as she learned the importance of it. Lola came to find that massage therapy would be a fitting career for her. Right after high school in 2014 she attended University of Western States in Portland, Oregon to obtain her Massage Therapy License and graduated in 2016.

Her basic massage modalities consist of deep tissue, myofascial release, pin and stretch, post isometric relaxation (PIR), craniosacral, prenatal, sports massage, trigger point as well as relaxation massage.
Lola has the utmost respect for anyone who seeks proper care for their bodies because she is aware of how important it is for us all, knowing how she has healed in so many ways. Being a miracle child at birth, Lola chooses to live the most out of life that she was almost deprived of.

Lola’s hobbies include hiking, realism drawing, areal yoga, dancing, modeling, reading, decorating, watching movies, shopping, time with friends, video games, paranormal, etc.… life.
“I feel massage is important because it brings a more intimate form of healing both physically and mentally. It brings more in depth understanding about the human body that everyone should know about. We are with our bodies every day of our lives. Born to move and thrive! The least we could do us make sure we can enjoy it by bringing our bodies to its true potential!”
“I love what I do...and I’m privileged to be a part of people’s evolutionary journey to reach their body goals!”

She completed the 800 hour program at East West College of the Healing Arts, graduating on the honor roll.

She "listens" to the tissues, and brings a unique spin of Eastern and Western modalities into every massage, seeing the body as a whole, addressing areas of concern, and working with each client’s individual needs and goals.

Kristin | TPC Licensed Massage Therapist
Kristin is a new team member joining the TPC crew in December of 2017. Kristin found a love of massage and chiropractic care at a young age. When Kristin was 15 her mother was in two bad car accidents. Eager to show off her newly leaned driving skills, she would drive her mother to and from her physical therapy appointments. Enthralled with what the PTs were doing, Kristin peppered them with questions about technique and application. Seeing her passion and curiosity, the PTs taught Kristin how to do massage to relieve spasm and pain, and encouraged her to use it on her mother between appointments. She learned that helping a person out of pain was a very rewarding feeling, and vowed to put into practice the talent she had been gifted.
Kristin graduated from East West College of the Healing Arts with a 4.0 in 2000, and obtained her license in spring of 2001. Starting after her second term at EWCHA, she became a Chiropractic Assistant (CA) to further her studies. After a few years in private practice, Kristin returned to the school she loved, but this time as an instructor. She taught anatomy, kinesiology, and developed the deep tissue class. In 2004 while sitting in stopped traffic, Kristin was rear ended, the person was going approx 55 mph. This caused Kristin to take a leave from teaching and her practice and necessitated lots of chiropractic care. It was a long healing process, and she looks forward to Dr. Bell reducing those residual aches and pains to nothing. Licensed as a massage therapist, chiropractic assistant, and personal trainer, Kristin’s passion for health and wellness runs deep. She specializes in deep tissue, myofascial release, and muscle-specific medical massage. With 17 years in practice, she brings a lot of knowledge with emphasis on compassionate care.
Kristin is a single mom to two teenage boys, a beautiful dog, and four loving kitties.
Brian | TPC Licensed Massage Therapist
Brian is a Chicago native who just moved out to the PNW in early 2018 to pursue a more balanced lifestyle as well as to escape the 9 months of winter in Chicago. Previous to becoming a massage therapist Brian worked as a Corrective Exercise Specialist/Strength and Conditioning Coach treating/working with people from all walks of life with vastly different goals. After feeling “stuck” with a few clients progress and having to refer to someone else anytime a client had a lingering issue; he thought it was time to make his personal practice/toolbox bigger by deciding to pursue his massage therapy license.
After some diligent research Brian found The New School for Massage in Chicago, Il and immediately made the leap. Fast forward a few years and many hours of continuing education later, Brian has been able to successfully integrate some pieces of his training background into further helping massage patients by incorporating movement and mobility as part of their therapy sessions/homework. Being well versed in Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Cupping Therapy, Fascial Stretching, and KinesioTape; he feels very confident helping just about every individual who walks through the doors at True Potential.
