Meet the Staff
Letha PeaseMassage Therapist
Letha Pease, BS, LMT earned her Bachelor of Science from Humboldt State University in Arcata California where she studied Natural Resource Planning. She served in the US Peace Corps (Philippines 2005-2007) where she taught Coastal Resource Management on the island of Bohol. After returning to the US, Letha spent the next several years building and maintaining wilderness hiking trails such as the PCT. It was this physically demanding work that caused Letha to see the value in massage therapy. Already sensing a need to change careers, Letha enrolled at East West College in Portland Oregon in 2012 and has been a licensed massage therapist since 2013. She now manages her massage practice in NE Portland at Spine Tree Chiropractic. In Jan 2018 Letha joined the faculty at East West College where she can share her enthusiasm for massage and bodywork. In her spare time she can be found at home in her garden or backpacking through the forests and mountains of the PNW.
