In the 1830’s and 40’s, the place where Portland now stands was known to the settlers and trappers of the Oregon Country as “The Clearing”. By the 1850 census, the town (then officially known as Portland) was the largest settlement in the Pacific Northwest, with 821 residents. The unique geography of the area allowed passage of ships that could not navigate to older towns nearby, and quickly made Portland the important commercial and cultural center that we know and love. We hope that by creating a space in your life for health and balance, you will see the effects grow in a similarly impressive way.
