A Powerful Tool for Health & Well-Being
Halcyon Bodyworks was created by Crystal Threlkld. Originally working as a solo massage therapist Crystal realized she could only help a limited amount of people. Pam McKenzie a seasoned and talented massage therapist inspired her to expand the massage business. Pam, with almost 20 years of massage experience, asked to work with Crystal and the collective began.
Realizing they’re better together the collective grew when other gifted massage therapists found Halcyon Bodyworks. Together the team provides massage as a tool for relaxation and healing.

Isata Massaquoi, L.M.T.
I was adopted from Sierra Leone at the age of eight. I grew up in Central Oregon and graduated from the Sage School of Massage. I specialize in providing my clients with massage therapy plans that help increase their mobility and quality of life.
I have practiced massage in all types of wellness spaces: physical therapy, chiropractic, and spas. Central Oregon is such a beautiful place to live and work, and I enjoy working with local and visiting clients.
I view my profession as my unique opportunity to help others, and I am honored to be able to share my culture through the power of massage.
Susan Holzem, L.M.T.
After a visit to a Thai Healing Center to learn Reiki Susan’s life changed. At the time she was a culinary student but fell in love with the energy exchange that happened with Reiki. The experience led her back to school to learn more about the body and what is possible.
In 2013, Susan graduated from East West College of Healing Arts in Portland, Oregon with a focus in deep tissue bodywork techniques. Her education didn’t stop there. As her practice developed she continued her studies in myofascial release, thai massage, reiki, and craniosacral therapy. These different modalities helped her establish her own style of bodywork.
Susan enjoys helping clients get unstuck, freeing up tissues and creating space to enjoy increased mobility, greater ease of movement, and pain reduction. But most importantly she enjoys giving people the opportunity to get away from distraction, pain and tension to help them find their center again.
JesseJane Slater, L.M.T.
A dear friend of many years, who JesseJane met on mission trips, was sick with ALS and helped her find massage. While Jesse was considering getting her masters in teaching she would meet her ailing friend. To help ease her pain and offer some relief, JesseJane would massage her. Every week her friend told her she should go to school to become a massage therapist. It wasn’t until after her friend passed away that Jesse listened and attended Central Oregon Community College where she received her massage therapy certification. JesseJane says, “I’m so grateful for the time we had and I’m so glad I found my true calling in life. Bringing healing to others is a gift and is meant to be shared. My passion in life is to love others and encourage others in their healing process. Massage therapy has allowed me to do that.”
JesseJane is a Central Oregon native with a passion for the high desert. She relishes time outside with her husband where they climb, hike, bike, surf and snowboard together. When they aren’t outdoors you can find them playing banjo or involved with teaching youth in the church.
Book an appointment with JesseJane if you are looking for treatment based therapy and therapeutic deep tissue massage. She’s really good working with specific issues. JesseJane has certifications in lymphatic drainage, cupping, and deep tissue massage.
