WHAT PEOPLE HAVE SAID

Elisabeth, Spiritual Counseling

Jakki is amazing! She is so intuitive and incredibly helpful in ways that only a true friend can be. She has helped me to manifest the best job situation. Can't wait to see what comes next. Was barely treading water before, now I feel like I'm thriving

Betty, Healing Bodywork

I'm so glad you are a part of my life. You gave me my life back! 

Sandy, Healing Bodywork

The pain in my leg that was there for a long time is GONE! Thank you so much!

Kelly, Spiritual Counseling

What a beautiful and transformative session I had with Jakki today!  Jakki's peaceful energy and ability to be a good listener provided a strong and loving container that provided so much healing for me to release the reactive emotions that were blocking me from my higher self.  Now I am feeling more like myself again, and able to step back and see things from a more spacious and lighter place.  I feel more loving and compassionate, with so much more peace flowing in my heart and thoughts.  

 

I highly recommend working with Jakki who is an expert in a number of modalities to help you with whatever you are currently experiencing.  Her presence in your life will bring many blessings!   Following a session with Jakki, I always say to myself, "why did I wait so long and stay stuck in those negative emotions?"  Working with Jakki helps me to remember that releasing and healing is a choice that we make in life, and I am so grateful that she shares her beautiful work with others. Thank you, Jakki!"

Deb, Healing Bodywork

I came in for a massage with Jakki because I was feeling tense and she suggested doing Jin Shin Do® and it ended up being a amazing release for me! On the table I had a realization that I was overwhelmed and I let so much of it go that day and i didn't even know it was there. I ended up writing a letter after and put my feelings out there and they were received well. It was a major step in my relationship!

Bonnie, Healing Bodywork

Jakki saved my life! I was in such pain with my back and having a panic attack from PTSD and the Jin Shin Do® combined with massage helped me relax and get through it and relieved my pain! I don't know what I would have done if she hadn't seen me that day. I'm so grate 

Josette, Healing bodywork

I was beyond pleased with my Jin Shin Do® session with Jakki. Having only read about the work, I was immediately interested in scheduling a session which Jakki when I learned that she was trained in this modality. I live out of state, but made certain to connect with Jakki when on LBI. She could not have been more generous with her time and the intimate attention to details which she offered throughout our session. Jakki is truly a diversely gifted healer whom I would encourage any/all to seek out for therapeutic modalit(ies), as well as to experience her wonderfully expansive essential oil offerings! Much love to your, my sister in healing <3

  • insomnia

Pain and stress are signs of imbalance in the body. They may be a “normal” part of life, but there are limits to how far “normal” can go before it becomes disharmony and dis-ease. When you feel pain, that is your body’s way of telling you to “slow down,” “take it easy,” or “try something different.” It is your physical body’s reaction to the stress you are placing it under.​ * Holistic modalities are not intended to diagnose, treat or cure and disease or disorder. For any persistent pain or symptom, it is strongly suggested to consult a medical doctor. 

Stress can either be of a physical or emotional source. As every particle of our universe is made of energy that carries a measurable vibration, so do our thoughts and feelings carry a vibration that can either raise or lower our physical body’s vibration and thus induce a relaxed or stressed state. The power of the mind over the body has been well documented over the past 1000 years,  and in recent years by Dr. Masaru Emoto in The Hidden Messages of Water. Dr. Emoto conducted an experiment with water whereby he showed that water from clear springs and water that had been exposed to loving words showed brilliant, complex and colorful snowflake patterns when frozen and viewed under the microscope, while polluted water or water exposed to negative words created incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors. This is so significant for us since our bodies are at least 70% water. Our sessions can help you harness this power of your mind to create the reality that you desire!

 I have been a practicing massage therapist since 1995 and have learned over a dozen wonderful healing techniques in that time. I have chosen to specialize in a unique therapy called Jin Shin Do® for the remainder of my practice because I have found it to be the most powerful tool for changing lives.


I would like to share with you how it feels to be more in control of your life and how to feel better each day. If you would like to try a session  to just get a taste of my abilities, schedule the 35 minute neck/shoulder release. A series of sessions will give you optimal results for stress relief as peeling back the layers of tension is a process and doesn't happen overnight. If you choose, I can combine in your session Reiki energy healing, therapeutic massage, hot stone therapy, essential oils, Life Coaching techniques, meditative visualizations and spiritual grounding techniques that help you connect to your true self.  Each session is completely customized to your needs. Coaching sessions are also available if you prefer to just talk it out.

Reiki Healing Session

Reiki energy is the universal life force energy. As it is present all around us, it can be transmitted from one person to another like radio waves send music through the radio. As a Reiki Master and empathic healer, I can be present with what you are feeling in person or from a distance and direct healing energy to what you need by simply sitting with your picture or with you on the phone. 

 

A typical session in person is 45 min-1 hr long and is very relaxing.  Hands are placed on the body while you are fully clothed and they do not move around like a massage. The energy is transmitted very gently through the hands to the body. Remotely, a 20-30 minute session is typically enough to effect a change. Although seemingly short, these sessions can be quite powerful. It is advised that you sit quietly while the energy is being sent but it is not necessary to be on the phone. Spiritual guidance may also come through if you are present on the phone via speakerphone. 

remote session- $25, In person- $65

Healing Massage & Bodywork

HEALING BODYWORK

Therapeutic massage and other bodywork modalities create a sense of renewal in the body. They bring your awareness to your body and away from your mind to get in touch with what is happening to you on a deeper level. Sessions combine mindfulness with touch to restore flow of blood, lymph and chi to areas that may have been blocked by injury, thoughts or emotions. 

Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure® is a gentle, yet effective way of releasing chronic tension or “armoring”, balancing the “Qi” (energy), and improving vitality.  Jin Shin Do® uses gentle yet deep finger pressure on specific acu-points and verbal body focusing techniques to help restore balance. This clothes-on method helps relieve stress- and trauma-related problems. A unique synthesis of a traditional Japanese acupressure technique, classic Chinese acupuncture and acupressure theory, Taoist philosophy, Qigong (breathing and exercise techniques), Reichian segmental theory and principles of Ericksonian psychotherapy, it is recognized as a major form of Asian Bodywork Therapy originated by psychotherapist Iona Marsaa Teeguarden. For more info go to http://www.jinshindo.org

  • Swedish, deep tissue or sports massage
