Length of Service: since September 2023 (Part-time)

Hayley attended Healing Hands School of Holistic Health in Laguna Hills, CA in 2013, graduating with a Holistic Health Practitioner certificate to become a licensed massage therapist with the California Massage Therapy Council. She focused on techniques including Myofascial Meridian Release, Sports Massage, PNF Stretching, Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, and Western Herbal Medicine. She then continued her education at Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland, OR graduating with a Master’s of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 2019, receiving a Diplomat of Acupuncture from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and licensure with the Oregon Medical Board.

Hayley comes from sunny southern California where she spent most of her younger years playing competitive water sports, swimming in the ocean, and making art. Being a highly active and creative person, she naturally gravitated toward an education focusing on body awareness and physiology. Informing her practice of medicine is a history of practicing and teaching yoga and meditation. Though she continues to draw from this experience, Hayley sought a way to further help those struggling with acute and chronic pain and maintain optimal health. With massage therapy she gained a fundamental knowledge of anatomy and physiology while acupuncture and herbal medicine opened the door to treating the whole person. Hayley owns her own private practice, Body Craft Wellness in Portland, OR.
