Hi, I’m Talula. A Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), I specialize in Craniosacral Therapy and also offer abdominal massage and therapeutic massage to bring my clients into balance and ease in their bodies. Depending on your needs, I create a unique treatment plan that meets you where you are emotionally, physically and spiritually. I am passionate about supporting your wellbeing, and I love to share my knowledge and understanding of the body, mind and spirit connection to help you live your best life. I was recognized in 2018, 2016, 2015 and 2014 by the Portland Monthly as one of Portland’s top Touch Therapists.

I use Craniosacral Therapy to help build resistance to disease and alleviate pain associated with the following:

  • Anxiety

  • Autoimmune diseases

  • Body pain

  • Emotional trauma

  • Fatigue

  • Headaches/migraines

  • Motor coordination impairments

  • Motor vehicle collisions

I grew up in the San Juan Islands in Washington where I was exposed to alternative medicine at a young age. After finishing my BA in Spanish at Lewis and Clark college, I attended East West College. Fascinated with the human body and its capacity to heal, I completed an 800-hour Massage and bodywork program and discovered my love of Craniosacral Therapy. Through continued training in Craniosacral Therapy, I am Level II certified. I have also completed the Level I self-care training of the Arvigo technique of Maya Abdominal Therapy and plan to continue to study this modality.

My patients say

“I have been seeing Talula Kana for craniosacral work with incredible results! Even though this type of work is subtle, Talula's technical skill and finesse are quite obvious. I have had amazing experiences and have always walked away from our sessions feeling balance and renewed.”

Julie V

“Talula's ability to listen to the subtle movements of bones and the communication lines throughout the body has important healing powers. Her ability to create a harmonious connect from your head down your spine has profound effects that help to reset the balance throughout your entire body system. I highly recommend her and her work!”

“I love Talula! I received a couple massages and craniosacral work from her while I was working on healing some abdominal pain and rib cage problems. She worked wonders. We weren't quite sure what was wrong because x-rays had shown no problem. After working with Talula, the pain wasbasically gone. I really appreciate her and will be back!”

Skylor P.

“I am so grateful for Talula Kana! She is an AMAZING massage therapist and healer. I have been to see her several times for neck and shoulder issues as well as cranial sacral work. She always brings my body and energy back into alignment. While Talula offers a very relaxing and restful massage she has incredibly strong hands that have worked wonders on my muscle issues. I cannot recommend her enough! Thank you Talula!”
