About

Jessica’s technique integrates a number of techniques of therapeutic massage, including Deep Tissue, Esalen, Swedish, and Polarity Therapy. Jessica uses touch to relax the nervous system in order to better access and release stress and trauma stored in the body and guide clients towards physical and emotional healing. Her touch is connected, present, fluid and intuitively guided. She believes in the intrinsic value of touch, whether it is slow, specific deep pressure, or soothing long strokes. Jessica guides her clients towards acceptance and awareness of their current holding patterns, which is the first step towards affecting lasting change. Jessica leads with presence and eases into deep work, so the body is more inclined to open up to pressure, allowing clients to sink deeper into release and relaxation.
