Tanya Bachman earned her bachelor of science from Portland State University in 1994, with a focus on health sciences.  She graduated from East-West College of the Healing Arts in 2005 and has been practicing as a licensed massage therapist since.  She has maintained a private practice in Scappoose, Oregon as well as worked for 9 years at Allied Chiropractic clinic in Hillsboro, Oregon.  As an LMT she has worked with clients in managing chronic pain and has encouraged positive life changes such as diet and exercise.  She enjoys working with the Scappoose High School Athletic Dept. to prevent sports related injuries and shorten down time when they do occur through sports massage, facilitated stretching and muscle strengthening.

Tanya earned her Masters of Science in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine (MSHNFM) from the University of Western States Chiropractic College in 2015.  In her program, she has focused on nutritional health and wellness coaching following the Principles of Functional Medicine, which looks at comprehensive health history and symptoms to find an underlying cause of physical dysfunction.  Looking at health history in this way, we are able to work at achieving health with nutritional therapy to support physiology and renew cells.

She works with clients, particularly those facing chronic illnesses such as diabetes, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic headaches, inflammatory conditions, auto-immune conditions, and metabolic syndrome.  Her areas of specialty include women’s health, cancer recovery, and cell energetics.  Tanya looks at these health conditions as challenges to overcome, and rises to the challenge of working with each client’s biochemical individuality to support systems and restore health.  She has struggled with her own disordered eating in the past, and realizes people’s eating habits are very personal and in many ways reflect our deepest selves.
