About Autumn Peterson, LMT, PTA

 
 

Originally from the Midwest, Autumn moved to Portland in 2004 to pursue massage therapy school and because she heard 'they rode bikes in Portland'. Following graduation she opened a private practice working primarily with the cycling community. As her practice matured she studied Thai massage, trigger point therapy, mysofascial work, injury rehabilitation and continued to seek out unique modalities. After three years in practice she began to travel abroad and domestically as a sogineur for professional bike racing teams. She also joined the Cycle Oregon massage team in 2010 where she travels all over the state with 19 other therapists providing support to 2000 riders cycling 70-100 miles a day for a week.

Wanting to delve into bodywork at a deeper level, she returned to school to earn her Physical Therapist Assistant license in 2016 which expanded her knowledge and increase her skillset. Autumn believes that education is a lifelong pursuit and is continually fascinated by the body. As an athlete of many disciplines, she understands how debilitating and frustrating injury and lack of mobility/flexibility can be. She loves to problem solve and create strategies to make lasting functional change!
