Patty Alvarez, LMT

Patty Alvarez grew up on the east coast but was drawn to the west in her early 20’s. In 1999, she moved to Colorado, where she learned to snowboard and rock climb. Several years later, her love of the outdoors pulled her out of the Rocky Mountains to the high desert of Central Oregon. Patty studied massage therapy at Central Oregon Community College and received her associate’s degree in applied science in 2005. She developed her skills as a massage therapist working on people afflicted with different types of injuries while working alongside physical therapists and chiropractors. Patty enjoys helping people and is proud of being a part of their healing process.

On her free time, Patty tries to take advantage of the beautiful landscape the world has to offer. You might bump into her on a the trails of Bend, hiking, biking, skiing, or just general frolicking in the woods.
