Welcome to Common Ground Wellness Cooperative

Common Ground Wellness Cooperative provides a full spectrum of healing opportunities for mind and body through our bathhouse and various practitioners in the Alberta Arts neighborhood in Portland, Oregon.

Our bathhouse features a large outdoor hot soaking pool with therapy jets and a dry cedar sauna. We are an all genders and clothing-optional wellness center that offers a safe, non-sexual space to relax and rejuvenate the spirit. We also offer men-only/women-only hours during the week, plus a monthly trans and gender queer night.

Our practitioners offer a wide range of sessions including massage, naturopathic medicine, acupuncture, counseling, and energy work. We provide a unique healing service called a Massage Sandwich™; which combines a visit with one of our practitioners with time in the bathhouse.


Featured Practitioner

Jacinda Phillips, LMT

Massage is amazing! I love it for many reasons. It is a highly effective tool for healing ourselves on multiple levels; physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and, ways that are unknown to me. I notice with every massage how it touches on each level simultaneously regardless of the primary focus. The most common feedback I hear from people is a greater awareness and connection with their body, and feeling more like themselves. Once someone said to me "I always feel like I come home to myself after massage". I think this is the fundamental piece I find myself celebrating the most as a massage therapist, accompanied with the sweet satisfaction of witnessing someone find relief from pain and feel more at ease in their body (no more headache is my personal favorite!).
Since massage school, which is based in Swedish relaxation massage, I have largely studied Thai Massage. I discovered Thai Massage from a fellow practitioner here at Common Ground many years ago. It is performed on a mat on the floor with the client fully clothed. Being an integral part of Thai Medicine, the goal of the bodywork is to aid the release of blockages in the physical pathways referred to as Sen Lines. The basic techniques include deep compression, pressure point work, passive joint movement, and passive stretching. Other tools commonly employed are cupping, scraping, and hot herbal compress. The theory and approach behind Thai Massage has a major influence on all of the massage I do! If you have not tried a Thai Massage, please come in to see me. I can pretty much guarantee you will never look back!!
Thanks for reading, have a beautiful day and I look forward to begin of service.
Yours sincerely, Jacinda
