Dali was phenomenal, and the space was so lovely. I was in so much pain before my visit–shoulders, back, and hamstrings. Afterwards, I felt like I was walking around the world in a hot bath, completely relaxed and pain free. Her massage style is very thoughtful, present, and purposeful. I’m so thankful she had such amazing availability and for such a great price!~ Anne M.

After my Ashiatsu massage from Sonja my previously unbelievably tense shoulder and back muscles are relaxed and feel great! I admit that, at first, the thought of someone using feet to massage was intimidating, as I was sure that I would get squished or be uncomfortable. Nothing could be further from the truth! My stress and tension is usually so intense that a LOT of strength is required to actually dig in to get to the heart of my muscle tension. Not do with Sonja and her technique. I’ve NEVER received such total relief from pain before! Also, I did use CBD salve on my shoulders, and I wish I had used this over my whole back! I can’t wait to go back.

Sonja’s hot stone massage combined with her Hawaiian Lomi Lomi was a blissful experience, to say the least. I felt like all the tension and stress in my body melted away in one session. She’s an incredible therapist with a healing touch. Will be back soon.

Hi Dali, I just wanted to send you a quick thank you note. That massage was fantastic and incredibly rejuvenating. I could barely walk before I came in, and I felt immediately better afterwards. The next morning I hopped right out of bed before even realizing my pain had practically all but disappeared. Thank you.

I’ve been getting massage from Kathy for about ten years and she is wonderful! Highly skilled, intuitive, thoughtful, and strong, and even after all this time checks in to see if there’s anything she can do differently to improve next time. She has a beautiful and effervescent personality that truly pairs well with the full experience. She is my go to for regular maintenance and well being and I can’t recommend her enough.
Absolutely amazing. I have chronic pain in my entire back so massage has been out of the question for me until now. This wonderful lady, Dali, is a miracle worker. I mean it! She is able to massage my pain away. I have had other massages around here and there, you know those franchises… I always left in more pain than when I arrived. Not with Blue Marigold Massage. I find that I am usually pain free, for the most part, until my next appointment. Highly recommend for anyone whether you have pain or just love a nice relaxing massage. Great atmosphere too. Love this place.

I visited Blue Marigold while visiting friends in Portland from NYC. I get weekly massages as I am very sore from running, and training for the marathon. My massage from Dali was personalized to be exactly what I needed. She knew I was on vacation and was able to combine techniques to make sure my sore muscles were attended to with deep pressure, but also that I was able to relax and enjoy soothing touch. I wish I lived there so I could go back regularly — definitely worth the flight cross country so If you are in the neighborhood – take advantage of her custom treatment.

Dali at Blue Marigold is a brilliant massage therapist who also has an extensive knowledge for herbal and essential oil treatments. She provided a wonderful massage experience that melted away my daily stress and addressed specific muscles issues in my shoulder. Highly recommend to everyone. Worth more than she charges.

I’ve been lucky in my life to have some great massage therapists in Hawaii and NYC. So, when I needed a much needed massage in Portland, I found Blue Marigold Massage on yelp and tried it out due to the great reviews. I was not led astray. My Ashiatsu and lomi lomi massages were amazing. Dali is an expert body worker and instinctively knew which part of my body needed work. She tailored her massage for my specific needs. I will definitely visit again on my next Portland trip.

AMAZING! I was visiting town for a couple of days and booked a lomi lomi massage with Dali. I walked in with some lower back issues and general tension and Dali’s work was intense, intuitive, and just perfect. Her hands landed exactly on the spots that needed work and her energy was profound. I completely let go and passed out during the massage (which I never do) and when it was done, I felt like a brand new woman. She was even able to tell that I was a massage therapist as well when she was working on my arms- she’s good! Dali is a gifted therapist with a powerful and healing touch. I just wish I lived closer so I could see her every week. I highly recommend- do yourself a favor and book a massage with her today!

I have suffered from chronic migraines for 20 years and lower back pain the last three. I am very particular about therapist and am very loyal. Once I find a good fit, I only switch when they move on. Recently mine went on extended vacation and I was fortunate enough to connect with Dali. I can say with absolute certainty that she is the best that I have ever had and I am staying with her! She knows how to adjust to my unique situations on that given day. I have always come away very impressed. The only reservation I have in recommending her is that I don’t want her to become too busy for me. She’s the best!!!

Just got an amazing massage from Dali. She used a variety of techniques from lomi lomi to deep tissue and some aromatherapy and it was amazing. It was exactly the style I was looking for after a bit of traveling and overworking myself. The place was serene and clean- I wasn’t looking for a crazy fancy spa. So if that sounds like something you would like then I highly recommend.

I have not had massage work done in years and after this massage I will switch to regularly getting them from Dali.
I have chronic neck tension and lower back pain, as well as acute stress. I’ve been seeing a chiropractor and had no idea that pairing it with massage could be so useful. The massage was very calming and deeply attentive. Dali was hands down exactly what I needed – she has the perfect touch. I’ve already recommended her to my friends, and I will be going back for more visits.

I had my first session with Dali today. I was very happy with the experience. Dali is friendly and pleasant, but above all else, professional. She was thorough in assessing my situation and her massage techniques were outstanding. I will definitely schedule another appointment soon.

So amazed at the extra attention and skill to help relieve my pain. I travel all over the world for a living and have had many experiences in many countries. After only two visits Sonja is in my top three favorite therapists. To clarify the other two have been treating me for over ten years. Five stars!!!
