My name is Jaimie, and I am passionate about the body as a whole! I truly recognize the body's inherent ability to thrive when it is deeply nourished & cared for. Nurturing touch is an essential component of making the body whole. Is it my truth to be of deep & reverent service to the human vessel by guiding others towards wholeness. I have spent years, prior to becoming a therapist, immersed in the world of bodywork & wellness. After a powerful healing session during my stay in an ashram in Guatemala, it became clear to me that it was time to embark on my own journey to become a bodyworker! I studied massage therapy at Madison College. Since graduation I was eager to learn more modalities, & have studied Ashiatsu, Acupressure, & Cupping. I love using a fusion of my skill sets to best serve the unique needs of each client. My job is simple, yet profound, to nourish & guide your body towards remembering its true perfection.

I graduated from Madison College in May 2018 where I received certification in Swedish based massage techniques. I also combine myofascial release, trigger point therapy, craniosacral and ROM techniques as necessary based on individual needs. I tend to work slowly and deliberately, moving at a pace that allows the body time to respond and direct what techniques and amount of pressure will be most appropriate and effective. In my experience I have treated neck, low back, and shoulder pain, headaches/migrains, sciatica, tmj, fibromyalgia, plantar fasciitis, frozen shoulder and various kinds of tendinopathies. I always strive to ensure a very attentive and thorough massage, so nothing is left feeling neglected and primary concerns are given enough focused time and attention. Outside of work you can find me...outside! I have a dog named Harlow and in the Summer we love to go swimming. Some of my hobbies include creating art, cooking and learning new languages :)
