Massage therapy is a valuable tool to support overall well-being and health. As an essential practice for body maintenance, it focuses on preventative care, pain management and supporting the vitality of the body's tissues, joints, and systems, reducing stress and fostering long-term well-being. A session involves a variety of techniques aimed at providing a therapeutic and healing experience. Intentional touch is utilized during the massage to help to release tension, reduce muscle imbalances, and promote optimal tissue health. It also supports nervous system regulation, thereby reducing stress and promoting relaxation. Tightness, stiffness, or restricted movement areas are addressed during the therapy, with the aim of alleviating muscle fatigue, discomfort, and the potential for injury. The techniques used are customized according to the client's unique needs, incorporating soothing strokes, targeted pressure, and fascial release, among other therapeutic massage techniques. This approach enhances the body's functionality while promoting relaxation and improving circulation. Massage therapy extends beyond physical maintenance. It offers an opportunity to unwind, restore balance, and develop a deeper connection with your body. Regular sessions can be an essential part of your self-care routine, allowing you to proactively nurture your body, prevent tension buildup, and enhance overall well-being. Specialized treatments, are also available for individuals with specific needs, such as limited mobility, chronic pain, repetitive strain and movement issues, scar tissue buildup, acute injuries, trauma, and more.

Somatic Massage is a specialized offering that combines somatic experiencing and therapeutic massage to provide support for individuals with various body concerns, including chronic pain and burnout. This session aims to assist in enhancing the capacity and resilience of your nervous system, promoting body awareness, and fostering a deeper understanding and trust in your body. The practitioner creates a secure and nurturing environment, using a slow and gentle approach that invites you to connect with your body and encourages you to notice sensations, feelings, and areas of tension. By working with the nervous system, the goal is to create opportunities for transformation and increased body awareness & understanding breaking away from ingrained patterns and moving towards a greater sense of comfort and ease. Throughout the session, you are guided to explore what feels accessible to orient within your body. Opportunities are created for you to notice your body and nervous system as it releases tension and responds to touch and pressure. Jess aims to support a broader way of relating to the experience of any physical discomfort or tension by addressing the relationship to the experience of pain alongside tissue health, sensitivity, chronic responses, and other mechanisms of body discomfort. Understanding that body discomfort can be a complex and multifaceted experience, Jess approaches each session with sensitivity and compassion. They are also willing to provide resources on self-care and body awareness, recognizing the importance of addressing the factors that contribute to the bodily experience.

Jess worked as a registered massage therapist (RMT) for over 12 years in Alberta before moving to Vancouver Island. She received training under the same curriculum as BC's in 2011. However, Alberta has not regulated Massage Therapy and does not have standardized entry to practice exams. As a result, her credentials cannot be transferred provincially. Therefore her services are not able to be claimed for benefit reimbursement. This makes Jess a great option for those without benefits who desire a highly experienced practitioner at a more accessible rate than comparable services offered by RMTs.

Currently, Jess has chosen not to pursue her RMT designation in BC for various reasons. Nevertheless, she maintains good standing with her Alberta association, CMMOTA. This allows her to continue practicing massage and bodywork in Canada under a recognized regulatory body. It ensures she remains accountable to ongoing training, practice standards and up to date liability insurance.
