I feel like a new person.
I do a lot of physical activity, which tends to be tough on my body. When I go in to see Becca, she is able to take care of all of my issues, and I am ready to go out and hike another 20 miles, ride another 50 miles. So happy I found her.

So happy I found Becca!
I have been experiencing PMDD symptoms for two years. I have used massage, anti anxiety medication, holistic diet and exercise to cope but nothing has come close to the relief I felt from receiving body and energy work for Becca. She is careful, kind, intuitive and helped me reconnect with my highest self. She is wonderful.

You won't be disappointed
I am so glad I found Becca! She is truly gifted. I have been to her twice now for massage, and she has tuned right into what my body needs. I am amazed at all she can accomplish in an hour. Find out for yourself, you won't regret the decision.

Exhale- Do not miss out
Becca is an amazing healer. Breath and energy work, massage.....this is by far the best place in Portland. Becca is intuitive and highly skilled at what she does. I cannot recommend her practice highly enough.

Since doing a 5x per week breath dance and 3 sessions, my meditation practice is opening to a sweet place from heavy and hard experiences. I am encouraged and want much more. Becca's massage and deep, listening are rare, rare.

I wasn't sure what to expect
But I knew that breathing with intention would bring me clarity, similar to meditation or prayer. And it did. I've only had my first session, but when it was over, I had the deepest sense of gratitude and peace that I've ever experienced. When you're ready to evolve, breathwork with Becca will help get you there.

A massage with Becca is like a private conversation between your body and Becca's hands. I highly recommend it.

Andrew aka"magic hands"
Andrew is an amazing masseuse!

Great shoulders down deep tissue
Great Deep Tissue ...I was really hurting from the gym in my legs and shoulders on Sat. Felt 100% better when I left...so much relaxed and not that much soreness. Amazing!

Becca is amazing. This is by far one of the best massages I have had in years. I would highly recommend her services.

in a market where there are so many massage therapists, finding someone who's really got a gift for the work has been a huge challenge. becca's got it, and i'm thrilled to have found her.

Becca is a true healer. She is able to hone right in on problem areas and has helped me with various aches and pains, and general muscle tenstion. She's the best!

Becca Demers was incredibly professional and gave me the best foot massage of my life. No joke. I think I actually fell asleep because I was so relaxed. If you've got aching tootsies, go see her, quick--she'll mend you.

For several months I enjoyed blissful bi-weekly Becca massages. Then I became "too busy" for a couple of months. Eventually my body demanded that I book another session. (Thank you, body.) No more "too busy" for me. Becca is amazing. That thing she does with the skin above your spinal column...?!?!!!
Sep 8, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
Just had my first massage. Becca was great! Felt totally comfortable and felt great afterward. Would totally recommend!

The most skilled practitioner
Becca defines new territory as a practioner. Her dedication, education and intention to healing arts is profound. I am very fortunate to have had many sessions with her. She has created a unique practice of therapeutic breathwork, Polarity, Reiki and massage. I cannot think of a practioner who can offer so much wish the level of mastery as Becca.

Intuitive and supportive
Becca does wonderful work in supporting your body and energetic needs. She listens and knows what is needed to soothe tired muscles and rejuvenate the spirit. I strongly recommend her work.

Breathwork with Becca
I only am writing this because my experience in the therapy sessions with Becca Demers is extraordinary. She is enthused with her work and yet balanced. The work itself has opened up areas blocked in me for years. Becca"s care is genuine. Thank you. Victor.

I had an hour and half massage with Andrew and the guy has magic hands! He hit trigger points on my body - mostly neck and shoulders that brought instant relief. Going back next week for round two.

Prenatal massage with Becca
I have had several fabulous massages with Becca during my pregnancy. She is attentive, gentle, and really knows how to help me relax deeply. They have been the best massages I have ever received!
Dec 15, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
I had a massage with Andrew and was impressed with his quality of massage and level of skill. I am a massage therapist myself so I know for sure he is good!
Dec 4, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
The Awake Collective has a wonderful and comfortable atmosphere. Becca is an amazing massage therapist- she's been helping to keep me healthy and whole!

Awesome foot massage
I had a foot massage with Magda and it was one of the most enjoyable experiences I can remember. Pure pleasure for 30 minutes. It was not reflexology, which is what I expected. It was an actual massage of all parts of my feet as well as my lower calves. I had a half off coupon from Deal Chicken but I'd be willing to pay full price ($30) for another.
May 12, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
My massage with Andrew was just what I needed. He listened to what I needed and delivered just the right pressure and attention. I will definitely be back for another massage with him.

Becca is one of the best massage therapists I've known
I've been receiving monthly massages for about twenty years and Becca is among the best. On my list of criteria for a GREAT MASSAGE are: great space, private and safe, great energy, and a therapist who is strong where needed and knows where the "spots" are. Becca and Awake provide all that and more.
Mar 29, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
Becca is a healer. Seriously. I am reticent to write this review in case word gets out too widely about how good she is ( and I cant get regular appointments!). But that would be unfair to Becca and her vision for the Awake Collective. Best. Massage. Ever. And her energy work is other-worldy. Not enough good things can be said....
Mar 7, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
Becca is amazing at what she does and knew exactly what I needed. Truly the best massage I've ever had and at a reasonable rate. I will definitely be back again and again.
Feb 24, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
A session with Becca is like peeling back layers of self and finally arriving at the truth that lies embedded in the body. She is a gifted practitioner and facilitator for transformation and Portland is so lucky to have her!
Feb 23, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
Just what I needed
Being 37 weeks pregnant, I had been longing for a massage for quite some time. Becca made me feel relaxed and pampered and took into consideration my comfort and positioning during this awkward time. It was a great experience!
Jan 17, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
I enjoyed my massage! A great member of HEP and I will certainly be back. Looking forward to seeing the new space, and hope that parking will be just as simple and easy there as it was this time around.
Jan 10, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
A wonderful, relaxing, productive massage. Becca gently sought out my sorest spots--and then dug in until they felt better. What more do you want? I'll be back.
Dec 20, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
I've had pain for over 6 months, and have had several different treatments but one session in massage and I was pain free for the whole day! THANK YOU!! and at the collective's rates, and will certainly be back often!

Nov 13, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
Exactly what I was looking for!
Having had many massages in my lifetime it is with great certainty that I say Becca has a very clear understanding of myafacial tissue and release! Perfect, absolutely perfect!
Oct 23, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
It's all frosting!
Every stroke from Becca is amazing... no cakealrontingShe's the best around... and having a value of allowing us who are now low-income to get massage is a huge commitment to her biz strenth. fyi - why can't I edit this?! ...above should read "no cake; all frosting!"
Sep 26, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
I decided to try The Awake Collective after a recommendation from a friend. She said that Becca had great hands and that the massage was fabulous. I have to concur. Becca seems to find any stress or troublesome spots right away. I would go back again and again!
Aug 29, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
Great first Impression
I am very happy with my first experience at Awake. Everyone was extremely warm and welcoming but also professional. I already have my second appointment lined up!
Aug 23, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
Truly gifted healing arts therapists!! You can feel the amazingly good vibes as soon as you set foot in ther door! Becca is spectacular! So connected to what my body needed to aid it's own natural healing process.
Aug 20, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
Great, relaxing massage
Becca definitely has a natural gift for massage. She creates a very calming environment that enables you to relax and let her sooth your tired muscles as well as your mind. She works in a very smooth and intuitive manner. I highly recommend her!
Jul 26, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
It was awesome!
My hour and a half massage with Becca at the Awake Collective was amazing. Very relaxing and the perfect amount pressure for deep tissue. My muscles felt great and Becca is amazing. I highly recommend them!
Jul 22, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
I finally returned to Becca after an 8 month hiatus following the birth of my son. How I've missed her! Becca has healing hands and a calming presence. I'm opting for the yearly membership so I won't be without her for so long again.
Jul 19, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
I had a great massage from Becca. She really knew which spots needed attention and had just the right touch. It was a wonderfully relaxing experience.
Jul 11, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
Becca is a truly skilled massage and polarity therapist and I very highly recommend her hour and a half polarity massage sessions. After a session with Becca I feel like a more grounded and effective person.
Jul 2, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
Becca gave me a fabulous massage yesterday. She knows exactly where to go on my body to find the tight spots, and then she knows how to release them. Her energy is peaceful and I left feeling so much better. I definitely recommend Becca to anyone who needs a massage!
Jun 11, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
Becca paid close attention and did fine work to relax my body. She is a good listener and a caring person. You do not have to think twice. Thank you Becca.

postpartum is no joke
My massage yesterday with Shahida was beyond relaxing, I can tell I released things that have been tight since I gave birth (WHY did I wait 20 months to get a massage???) I definitely released more than muscle tension, the effects of PPanxiety&insomnia, breastfeeding strain, 'repetitive use' tightness...I fell asleep on the massage... table, and have been walking more upright since yesterday...don't wait 20 months to get on the massage table!!
Apr 22, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
Becca is a very talented, caring, and professional massage therapist. It was a very relaxing environment and booking the session was easy. Thank you!
Apr 14, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
An awesome treat!
Shahida's massage was very thorough; she addressed the issues I had mentioned and the overall experience was super relaxing. I booked another appointment right away! Being so affordable is an enormous plus too! Loved it!
Apr 3, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
My neck got longer!!
I came in with my chin on my chest and left with a view of my neckline I havn't seen for awhile!!! Thank-you so much Shahida, I'll be back as soon as I get another break in my schedule, or maybe I'll just play hooky one day .

Best massage I've had in a LONG time
Had a hour and a half polarity session with Rebecca and it was fantastic. The space is beautiful and inviting, very comfortable. Rebecca was wonderful, I left relaxed and feeling GREAT. Will definitely go again, and am recommending Awake Collective to everybody!
Mar 13, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30050150
Becca is a natural healer...
Some massages are therapeutic but not relaxing.. other cuddly but not the healing depth... Becca is both and has the talent of 30 years experience!... so she's a natural healer with her hands. So glad to have connected with her.

A True Vibration of Authentic Healing Intention
Just by walking into Awake there is the instant feeling of peacefulness, a sanguine undertone ensuring your healing needs are their (the Collective) priority. I received a couple of treatments from Becca & her ability to intuit and 'know' the the source of pain and then create a plan to address it is awe-inspiring. I'm not an easy sack-a-potatoes to massage, yet she can bring immediate relief. Becca draws from a rich reservoir gifts & abilities that go beyond most practitioners. A true gift!

I love the Awake Collective. Becca is helping me to heal a chronic shoulder problem, and so far, the spot literally has not felt this good in years. I am very thankful to have found such an amazing place. The massage here is not only affordable, but I leave relaxed and feel like I've learned something about my body.

the awake collective
wonderful group of folks at the awake collective. because of the low price, i'm able to get massage more frequently than i have ever been able to. the best part is, though, is becca and shahida are so good at what they do. and... if i lived closer, i'd participate in the other offerings.

massage at the awake collective
My massage with Becca was amazing. I filled out the form and told her the spots that needed help and that I wanted an overall relaxing massage. I walked out of there on cloud 9. Its was a really nice space and was everything I was looking for. I highly recommend it.

I had a Polarity/Massage session with Becca. She was great! She made me feel so at ease. I left feeling clear, energized, pain-free and lighter. I will go back to her in the future for sure! Thank you!
