The massage starts with calming the mind and reading the body. As an empath, it allows me to have insight on the area in which to focus.

Jonathan Hudgins, NCTMB, LMT
I am a Licensed Massage Therapist, Nationally Certified Therapist in Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB). “I started in the medical field as an EMT when I was 17, and then worked in the ER before leaving for the military. During my 4 year tour, a sports injury kept me from training for over 6 months even with many different types of treatments. A Thai massage did more for my chronic pain than anything the military doctors had to throw at me. I decided then to become a massage therapist as soon as I got out, and that’s exactly what I did. I went to a medically focused school where I learned about orthopedic assessment and other strategies for addressing issues in the body. My goal during massage is to get as much beneficial work done without causing pain. Some of my specialties are myofascial release, therapeutic stretches, hot stones, deep tissue, trigger point therapy, and objective focused work. My intent is to help people with massage as much as it helped me.”

Jackie is a certified Craniosacral Therapist, Reiki and Soma Pi; she works with the customer to assist the body’s self-correcting mechanisms. She is fluent in 5 languages including English, French and African dialects. As a therapist, my goal is to provide excellent service, as it has been an integral part of my success in the past. I believe being attentive to my clients’ needs and committed to their satisfaction. I feel that everybody is different and therefore everybody’s needs are different. That is why I use a combination of different techniques in my practice. Through integrative therapeutic touch, I hope I can help my clients nourish their bodies, replenish their souls, and help them find joy in their life. Cranial Sacral therapy is one of the keys to vibrant health. Stress in its many forms can rob us of our ability to fend off disease.  It is a proven way to reduce/relieve the negative impacts of stress and to keep the vital energy within us strong.

Marie-Reine Viollin, Certified Jin Shin Jyutsu Practitioner
Marie is a Certified Jin Shin Jyutsu (Energy Healing) practitioner and has been practicing the art for 15 years. Jin Shin Jyutsu physio-philosophy is an art of harmonizing the life energy in the body. Born of innate wisdom and passed down from generation to generation by word of mouth, the Art had fallen into relative obscurity when it was dramatically revived in the early 1900’s by Master Jiro Murai in Japan. After clearing himself of a life-threatening illness, Master Murai devoted the rest of his life to the research and development of Jin Shin Jyutsu, gathering insight from a range of experiences and resources, including the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Things). Officially known as Jin Shin Jyutsu Physio-Philosophy, this practice is a disarmingly simple style of acupressure. It works with a set of 26 points (called Safety Energy Locks or SELs) along energy pathways. When a pathway becomes blocked, energy stagnates. This initially affects the local area of stagnation, but has the potential to create imbalance along the entire pathway. The 26 Energy Locks are the locations on the body where energy tends to become stuck.  Marie as a Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner uses both hands (referred to as “jumper cables”) to hold a combination of SELs. The very simplicity and gentleness of the process allow clients to relax and receive the work. As the SELs release and balance is restored, the client experiences physical, mental, and spiritual harmony.
