We are excited to welcome Naomi McCourt to Body of Light. Naomi's approach as a massage therapist mirrors the Golden Rule: She wants to treat clients as she would like to be treated, which means really listening to understand their concerns and how best to address them. Naomi likes to incorporate relaxing techniques with work that helps resolve specific issues. She says that massage is not just about touch – it involves connecting with the client’s energy and working with it to give relief.
Body of Light’s new back-office guru, Lara Engebretson, grew up in Minnesota. Like many mid-westerners, Lara was awed by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest when she first visited in 2008. She and her husband made the move to Eugene four years ago and Lara says that they’ve found much enjoyment in “amazing local food, beautiful parks, coastal towns, and some of the friendliest people I’ve ever met”.
After almost three decades of living in Oregon, Body of Light’s new back office guru, Ashley French-Roberts, continues to love visiting our coast. Now she plays on the beach with her husband, 4-year old son and 4-month twin boys - and especially loves watching her oldest son experience the joy of being there. Ashley enjoys being outdoors in general, particularly in the fall. When the weather finally forces her inside she becomes a fan of “The Office”…some would say she is obsessed with the show!
Heidi always wanted to be a healer and, as a child, practiced on family members. She kept on that path, receiving a Health Care Administration degree while volunteering with a hospice, where she provided palliative care through loving touch. She then graduated from Lane Community College massage program in 2010.
