Came in to see Katie with a wrecked shoulder and pulled muscles in my back from a bike accident. I have been to her before, but not for an injury. Katie was super gentle, explained her process and majorly improved my pain and overall function. Her space is calming and cozy. The music is A+. I will continue to see her as she is the best is business!

Katie has a great spirit, and some serious strength. Her technique was very productive and didn't want me to leave until the knots were out. (Hadn't gotten a massage in a long while). The oils she used smelt so great, and it was better then lotion as it didn't leave my skin oily. The massage room set up is awesome, as well. She is a great LMT and I recommend her!

I've known Katie at White Orchid for some time. she is an awesome person, and just found out how great she is as a massage therapist. totally pro and high quality massage.

90 minute massage, with good conversation, I felt right as rain afterwards! I would absolutely recommend this to friends.

To anyone struggling
I've reviewed before, but I saw Katie before leaving for a long trip and now that I've arrived, I realize there's no way I could've made it through the trip without her working on me first. I think now more than ever people are consumed by stress and anxiety, including myself, and the toll it takes on your body is really crazy. If you're looking for some relief from that, please see Katie. Your body feeling better will help.

Katie does a great job, and seems to be a VERY nice person. She really works out the knots and tight muscles.

Katie is a healing goddess!
After my massage with Katie I felt like I was floating on air all day. She worked out all of my knots, and I plan to continue to see her for my injured hip! She also creates such a peaceful space which makes it incredibly easy to relax and get the full benefits of her work!

Kate is a great therapist who goes out of her way to holistically approach my health needs and deliver relief as well as prepare me for bodily improvement between treatments.

White Orchid West - Katie Grenier
Katie Grenier, sole proprietor of White Orchid West, embraces LMT and naturopathic medicine as a lifestyle, not just a career. She is acutely aware and in tune with how her practice promotes healing, rejuvenation, and relaxation in both physical and mental approaches. I would highly recommend Katie to anyone seeking post injury muscle recovery, relaxation, or athletic cleansing. I put complete trust in her knowledge and execution about what is best for my body.
Apr 20, 2017https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Awesome for Athletes!
I get massages so that I can train and race. Katie has not only allowed me to do that, but I come away learning something about what I need to take care of or give more attention to in order to train better. I trust her like a trainer or coach.
Apr 18, 2017https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Katie was wonderful! In a time when I needed self care and relaxation, Katie helped me achieve my goals! The massage was just what I wanted; healing and regenerative. I booked an extra 30 minutes from my 60 minute gift certificate and it was worth every minute. And she...is an amazing person. Don't hesitate. Book an appointment for yourself or someone you love bunches.
Apr 8, 2017https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Katie was amazing. She took the time to ask questions to ensure I got what I was expecting. I was very comfortable and she even gave me tips on how to prevent soreness in the future. She was amazing and professional. I plan on going again. Thank you :)
Apr 3, 2017https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Consistent and Conscientious
Very curative and customized. Always leave feeling great for days on end. Parking is easy, salon music distracting. (last sentence inserted to meet 100 character requirement.) Thanks K.
Feb 28, 2017https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
I've seen Katie a few times and they were all centered around my body breaking down from overwork and stress, and she reversed all the bad I had done to myself within 60 minutes every time. It's crazy how talented and cool she is. Take DJ Khaled's advice, don't play yourself, this is where you should be getting massages at.
Feb 17, 2017https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
My first massage ever and it was spectacularly done. She was very thorough and a great conversationalist. Will definitely be coming back for another.
Jan 26, 2017https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Perfect skillful and personal.
Great massage with additional and very relieving skeleton adjustment. I'm signed up for the future with Kattie.
Jan 23, 2017https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Katie gave me a very relaxing massage treatment. She surprised me with the use of hot rocks and various heating elements. This was my first time with her and I will be back for more work. I think she just may be able to work out my long standing tensions!!!!
Jan 6, 2017https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Professional LMT, who knows her work!
Katie was very good! Checked in with me at the start about what I was looking for and did a great job of working out the problem areas, as well as finding another tight spot and working that out with a new (to me) technique. Mahalo!
Dec 31, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
I am a LMT and I am very selective in who I receive care from. I went to see Katie needing focused treatment on my shoulders and thoracic back muscles. I received the exact care I needed to "revive" me!!! I love Katie's special and exceptional care. AMAZING!!!!
Dec 19, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
A happy customer
I went in for a massage last night for the first time and I can definitely say it was a great experience. Katie was very professional and made me feel very comfortable. I plan on going back as soon as I can!
Dec 13, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Great way to destress your day
Katie is simply the best! She does an amazing job making your feel comfortable while focusing on the main areas that are hurting. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a great LMT. It also doesn't hurt that she has an amazing personality and is very easy to talk to. Thanks Again Katie!!!
Dec 12, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
just what i needed, when i needed it!
Great massage and good advice on exercises and stretching. Thanks for being available on a Sunday evening!
Nov 23, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Spot on therapy !
Very pleasant place , I was very well informed and asked about my massage needs first hand. Awesome session ! A definite return in the works !

90 Minute Sports Massage
As a middle aged guy who works in contstruction and who is extremely phyisically active. Everytime I have had Katie work on me I come out feeling refreshed, relaxed, and most importantly healthier than when I arrived. Very knowledgeable and a true professional in her trade.
Nov 8, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Came to Katie for first time with some deep aches and tight muscles. Left feeling amazing. She is exceptionally skilled, personable, and intuitive. I've finally found my "go to" therapist!
Nov 7, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Extremely Effective!!! Will be back many times
Katie is beyond competent- she is extraordinarily skilled. She has strong fingers and an uncanny ability to find the stuck points on your body. As a fellow practitioner I will be back not just for excellent massage but also in the hopes that I can pick up on some of her little tricks and use them on my own clients.
Oct 17, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Great massage overall. Katie provides a comfortable atmosphere and easygoing personality that really let you relax and get the most out of your time. Will be back for sure!!
Oct 16, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Probably the best massage I've ever had. Katie was able to loosen up my hip that's been bothering me for months. I'll certainly be back.
Oct 15, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
this was my second time with katie and i was so happy with the service both times. i always leave feeling looser and more relaxed without feeling like my muscles were traumatized with deep tissue work.
Oct 8, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Sweet relaxing time
After a 12 hour car ride I asked a friend where I could go and get some pain relief. I was so happy with my treatment. Going to call Katie again when I return.
Oct 3, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Katie gave me a great 90 minute massage which sent me home received from a prior sore and stiff state and as she predicted led to a good nights sleep. Also felt great the following day (today) with expanded range of motion and general sense of body ease. She also displayed a natural amiable personality and a comforting table-side manner. I will definitely become a regular customer.
Sep 23, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Katie is truly amazing! I originally booked an hour session. But after a short period of time, I requested to extend my time to 90 minutes as I found her to be so intuitive to addressing the problem areas I was experiencing. Following my session, my range of motion in my neck and lower back had dramatically increased and the pain had subsided. I definitely will return to see Katie and would highly recommend her!
Sep 4, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Nothing less than the best massage I have had. I will recommend her to everyone! My visit was a couple of days ago and I still feel much better.
Aug 27, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Best massage I've gotten in awhile and I've gotten a lot of massages. I have many injuries and have a laborious job so I was pretty jacked up when I went in. By the end of the hour and half massage I got I felt like I was floating on a cloud. It was relaxing, but intense which I prefer. I find it hard to find someone who will put enough pressure in certain places to get the release I need in my sore muscles. Katie did an absolutely wonderful job and she was extremely sweet!
Aug 23, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Strong, Purposeful, and Intuitive
I started seeing Katie a while ago, after my original therapist moved to Hawaii. Actually, I saw a bunch of different massage therapists before I found, and stayed with, Katie. She is a friendly, caring person who not only listens to what you verbalize, but also hears what your muscles are telling her. Every time I see her, I don't want her to ever stop, no matter the length I've scheduled. I'm picky, and I am not afraid to recommend her to anyone I know.
May 31, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
I've received Katie's session work before & I always enjoy the focused attention to my de stressing needs. Thank you again Katie! Your caring shows~
May 11, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Great energy, great massage!
Really great experience all the way around! Hot towels, great communication on what you need, and a very skilled massage.
May 8, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Katie did a nice job asking questions at the beginning of the massage to help identify my challenge areas. Once she started working on some spots she even added heat to try to work out the knots. She did a great job creating a relaxing environment and I felt well cared for. Recommended!
May 4, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
This was by far, the best massage I have ever received. Katie really cares about her customers and is amazing with her hands. I felt like a million bucks afterward. I will definitely be returning as a regular customer. Highly recommend!
May 1, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Before she starts, Katie takes time to find out what areas need attention. She works until those tight muscles relax. I always feel better when I leave. She is my favorite massage therapist and I look forward to my next visit!
Apr 29, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Great energy, great technique, great massage!
Katie obviously loves what she is doing. She takes great care to make sure you are comfortable and you get the best massage possible. She started with hot towels and it was so cozy! I relaxed right away. Then she got to work on some of my tougher areas and did a great job! Incorporating essential oils and hot stones. Absolutely what I needed!
Apr 28, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
If they were all this good
Katie is a pro, delivering an excellent deep tissue massage. She also offered insights as to the source of some of my issues. Aside from that, she is very kind and comforting. I left having made a new life friend. Thanks Katie!
Apr 23, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Knowledgeable and firm
Katie gave a great massage and was responsive to my request for a very deep tissue massage. Other therapists have balked about the depth that muscles require but I know from experience what works for me and she was on board.
Apr 14, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
who would have known?
I cannot believe the strength and healing capacity in Katie's hands. But it goes deeper she certainly has a way about her that connects with you allowing all the tension built in the muscles to float away. Count me in for more and more and more... What a great massage with a great person. Wont be my last rodeo with her!
Apr 10, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Excellent work! Very relieved after years of having a massage I'm very glad I went here! She was kind and knowledgable. Exactly what I needed and I'm feeling very relieved.
Apr 8, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Just what I needed
Katie was very into in with what was going on with my body. She asked me the right questions as well as give me good insight on what she felt I needed. Everything was great the environment her touch etc. will definitely be going back.
Mar 26, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
HOLY MACARONI!!! I have not had a professional massage in maybe 15+ years, for whatever silly reason. Katie just worked through a bajillion years of old kinks, injuries and pains like a CHAMP (and bonus alert: is super cool!). I am used to feeling sore somewhere everyday, but have taken for granted breathing in without something pinching or hurting for years- I will be making this part of my training regimen!!!!!!!
Mar 25, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
I went in with a very tight neck and shoulders, from too much stress and time on the computer. She worked HARD and I feel great. It made a huge difference.
Mar 7, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Recently experienced tight shoulder joint and muscle pain from work. I visited White Orchid West Massage and was given an excellent technical massage removing the pain and soreness from my shoulders. I highly recommend them for a healing touch.
Mar 5, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
The best message.
It took me 12 years to finally find the massage therapist that knew how to take away the discomforts that come with being athletic, after going through so many massage therapist its such a relief to have found one that knows how to feel and heal a worn body. Thank you.
Mar 3, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Excellent First Massage
This was my first professional massage, and it definitely won't be my last. Katie was very thorough in explaining what she was going to do and asked a number of questions before starting. This may sound funny, but I'm ticklish and I was thinking it might be difficult to have a massage. She used the proper amount of pressure and made me feel comfortable and relaxed right away.
Feb 26, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Lifesaver. Katie rocks!
I had so much tension in my shoulders I couldnt lift my arm without terrible pain and it was preventing me from work. Katie rearranged her schedule, came over to my side of town to accomodate my sheduIe so I could make my next shift at work. Pain was gone! Just recently I tweaked my back. Not only did she work out the tension, she was able to figure where the problem stemmed and realign my hips. Not just anyone could have done that. Warm, comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. Katie is the best!
Feb 12, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Katie is an excellent massage therapist. I get roughly a massage every other week and haven't found anyone in Portland who compares with her.
Feb 11, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
I've gotten massage off and on for over 15 years, mainly for athletic ailments. When I start training for something, such as a marathon, cyclocross, or a trekking vacation, I find it very beneficial to get massage frequently. I was able to book Katie on a same day appt, which I really needed. She is one of the best therapists I have ever seen. Strong, intuitive, intelligent, and friendly is how I would describe her.
Feb 7, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Great massage experience.
This massage completely eliminated nerve pain in my neck and shoulder from a recent multiple fractured clavicle. Bery highly recommended massage therapist.
Jan 22, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Katie is absolutely phenomenal and I would recommend her to anyone. She's kind, professional and listens to your specific concerns while promoting a calm and relaxing atmosphere.
Jan 22, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Hands Down one of the best massage experiences I have had (and that's out of a lot). I had a wonderful time. Katie is Lovely individual who is highly experienced, personable, and very intuitive with her practice. Her hybridized approach creates a highly customized massage experience, directly suited to fit your needs. I will definitely be going back!!! :P
Jan 21, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Well worth the time
My back has been hurting for quite a while but been reluctant to visit a LMT for years. After reading the reviews and booking an appointment, I did not regret it one bit! Katie helped talk through what was personally wrong with my back and helped ease away the pain. Now it's been a week since and my back is still feeling very good! She really has that empathetic gift as well as knowledge of the body (it was great learning about proprioceptors!). Definitely planning to return.
Jan 20, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Katie was the perfect mix of being very informative but also allowing me to enter into a deep state of relaxation. I found her technique to be very special, with nuances that take your experience to another level beyond that of, even, what most would consider an advanced massage therapist. She has a subtle way of delivering a powerful state of peace that you'll just have to experience for yourself. You won't be disappointed. :)
Jan 17, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Katie is an exceptional massage therapist. Its amazing how much tension and stress she can relieve in just an hour. I always leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Room and table are always clean. Very enjoyable conversation. Will be coming to Katie for as long as I live near Portland.
Jan 5, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Thoroughly enjoyed. I felt very rejuvenated after. She also served me tea. The room was very comfortable and smelled good. She also used some essential oils and hot stones.
Jan 4, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Katie was professional and did a fantastic job. Great communication and relaxing setting. Plan on returning!
Dec 8, 2015https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Always a good massage
I'm fairly active and have found that regular massage helps prevent muscle injuries. So I spent some time trying out different LMTs in the area before I settled on Katie. Part of an LMT's healing power is in their hands. Katie's hands are the right combination of warm, strong and soft. She is also very good at finding knots in my muscles and working them out. I treated myself to a 2 hour session recently and walked away with my muscles feeling very loose, relaxed and blissed out.
Nov 30, 2015https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
The room was lovely, the massage was thorough, and the conversation was relaxing. I'm not typically one to buy massages on the regular, but I may have to reconsider after this one. It was great!
Nov 25, 2015https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
The Best Massage of My Life
So I am not the type of person who would normally take the time out of my day to complete a review online, unless it was well deserved, and extraordinary. I can honestly tell you that Katie is the most gifted therapist I have found. Ever. In fact, I even debated whether or not I should complete a review so no one would know... Well it's the holidays and it's the season for giving, so I thought now would be a good time to let the secret out. Happy holidays!
Nov 24, 2015https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Stress Relief at its finest
Katie does amazing work and is hands down the best massage therapist that I have had the pleasure of getting a massage from. I would recommend her to anyone who needs to take a break from reality and just relax for a few minutes.
Nov 18, 2015https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Katie does great work. I've been worked on by numerous people for my muscle damage. Katie knows the correct pressure to loosen me up. Which is a daily struggle for me. Katie is a godsend. I highly recommend her services.
Nov 11, 2015https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
The environment, massage, and masseuse were all excellent. I went out on a limb booking with a professional from a craigslist ad rather than referral but couldn't have been more satisfied with the massage as well as the value. Thanks Katie!
Nov 10, 2015https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Getting the right pressure is key. With Katie, you don't have to tell her how deep. She knows how to apply the right amount of pressure needed for specific areas. She is a tremendous help to keep me playing soccer and golfing on a regular basis. I highly recommend her for any type of preexisting injuries, she also has the knowledge to recommend a chiropractor if she feels that's needed.
Nov 10, 2015https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Rehab and overall wellness
I started going to Katie regularly after a car accident in 2013 for some back and neck issues. She worked wonders for my pain levels and overall muscle soreness. I've referred many friends and family to her and all who have gone raved about her skill and professionalism. If you're debating on whether or not she's the therapist for you, quit debating and book that first appointment. You won't regret it.
Nov 4, 2015https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Best massage ever! Katie is very in tune with stress points that needed attention. I can already feel the release taking place and would totally recommend Katie : )
Nov 2, 2015https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Seriously, I've been to at least a dozen other massage therapists, and Katie is - hands down, pun intended! - by far the best! As I've said to her, she has the rare combination of superior anatomical knowledge and technique with incredible intuition and "flow" that is so rare in a therapist. I told her after one session that I thought she was gifted, and she told me that, once, when a friend asked her why she's always so happy, she replied, "because I get to meditate at work all day!"
Oct 30, 2015https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30301185
Relaxing combined w working gout the knots. I'll be going back! I highly recommend Katie and have already sent a couple friends to reach out to her
