Licensed Massage Therapist in Battle Ground, Washington. License No. MA60687392
My name is Justin "Red Buffalo Bull" Lien. My wife's name is Taylor and we have two beautiful monsters named Quentin and Cooper. How I got started in massage therapy began with me working in construction. I was making great money, but I wasn't happy or fulfilled by my work. At that time, my wife Taylor was working at a computer all day. She has worked at a desk or computer since we were teenagers. This caused her to develop terrible neck and shoulder pain, leading to work-cancelling migraines. They were so bad we went to doctors. They prescribed her pills that just made her groggy, but had no headache relief. To watch a loved one be in that much pain, and not be able to do anything about it...is awful.
So I started researching anything I could to help and stumbled across a massage therapy tutorial for headache relief. I used those techniques on her and alleviated her headaches. She hasn't had to cancel out on anything because of headaches since that day. Being able to help her made me want to check out a massage therapy school. It was there that I truly found my calling. I love being able to help people heal and take their pain away. To know that the work I do can improve peoples lives gave me the fulfillment I was looking for.
I have a band called Queen Chief where I sing and play guitar. I've been playing since I was 8 and absolutely love music. I drum and sing in pow wows with my grandpa, usually with Quinn on my lap. I visit North Dakota where my ancestors are from multiple times a year. I dance in the Sundance with my family and do what I can to keep the culture alive and well. My native name is Mideegaadi-giiraabe Hishi "Red Buffalo Bull". My sons Native names are: Maaihaa eehge "Knows his enemy" (Quentin) and iikia "Horse Whip" (Cooper)
I'm of Hidatsa, Mandan, Arikara, Sioux, and Paiute tribes, but all my elders just call me a mutt. I incorporate my spiritual healing experiences into my work when I can, and I always give it my all. I don't want people to leave the table until they're feeling better. Healing comes first, always. I look forward to working with whoever had enough free time to read this. I mean, I had enough to write it, so we'll probably get along just fine!
Mitakuye Oyasin! (All my relations!)
