Meave Short, CTMP
Initially raised in a small community on a remote island in Alaska, Maeve began apprenticing at the young age of ten in her mother’s midwifery clinic and birthing center in Kodiak. Through classes and apprenticeship, she devoted herself to learning a tremendous amount about herbalism, nutrition, infant and pregnancy massage, doula and midwifery care, and childbirth education. Additionally, she worked on her family’s fishing vessel for eight years during the salmon and halibut seasons which prepared her hands well for delivering exceptional massage therapy.
After leaving Alaska and enjoying a bit travel, Maeve settled down in Seattle in 2000. There she completed a comprehensive education at Brenneke School of Massage (now Cortiva) and the Buntaduk Tradit Institute of Northern Thai Massage. After she later moved to Olympia, she apprenticed in Hawaiian Lomi Lomi and Hellerwork style myofascial release to compliment her education in Sports Massage and Structural Integration.
The unique and comprehensive style Maeve delivers works progressively towards whole body wellness through addressing past injuries, chronic pain, nutritional challenges and improving activities of daily living. Her Thai Massage training further benefits her patients, adding acupressure and movement to ease and effectively treat deep pain and immobility. This work helps patients move towards defining their full potential, rediscovering their healthy movement.
Meave has three amazing daughters, three loving cats, and one incredible husband. In addition to these loves, she is passionate about music, community and her farming.

Randy Weaver, LMP
Inspired by his wife, a Registered Nurse, Randall left behind years of sales and tech experience for the chance to be able to help people with real problems. As a former athlete with a long and distinguished list of nagging injuries dragging him down, he was well acquainted with the physical and emotional pain that can come with chronic pain. He also knew that massage had given him tremendous relief and allowed him to feel years younger once he found the right practitioner. Graduating at the top of his class at Alexandar School of Natural Therapeutics in Tacoma Washington, he now gets up excited to go to work knowing that every day is an opportunity to bring back some of that quality of life that someone thought was gone forever. When Randall is not doing bodywork, he enjoys hiking, cooking, listening to music, and playing with his son Samuel.
