Jane H.

In 1979, I packed up my car and moved to Olympia, WA from New York State. Soon after being licensed to practice massage I began work at Radiance Herbs and Massage, practicing massage in Olympia from 1983-1986. I moved to Seattle in 1987 and began work at New Seattle Massage. Between the years of 1991-1999, I left New Seattle Massage to develop my own practice. During that time I also received a real estate license and spent several years studying at the community college. Deciding a career in real estate was not for me and tiring of working on my own, I returned to New Seattle Massage to work in a community of massage practitioners. I am drawn to practicing Swedish massage because it is the massage that I most enjoy receiving. I generally work with medium-deep pressure with deeper specific work when called for. I find that a strong, flowing Swedish massage can be deeply relaxing, which is the effect that I strive for.

Jennifer S.

I became interested in Massage Therapy even before middle school. I can honestly say that it is my calling in life. It is an honor to have the opportunity to help people overcome their personal injuries and boundaries. My style is intuitive, while incorporating modalities such as myofascial release, modified deep tissue, trigger point release, scar manupulation, muscular guarding and many other clinical treatment methods. I strive to inform my clients about the findings of the massage so that we can work together to accomplish personal short term and long term goals, and discuss self care regiments to follow through with at home. When I am not in massage mode, you can find me serving food to the homeless, adventuring with my kids, and studying herbal medicine.

Biologists say the way to “heal” an ecosystem is to connect it to more of itself. This is a good description of what massage can do. This connection is the gift of receiving a massage. A window of time to connect with yourself, bringing awareness, circulation, and energy to tight and sore muscles and joints that you may not have noticed before.

My aim in giving a massage is to activate your body’s self regulating mechanism. I use some neuromuscular techniques, movement, and resistive stretching to talk to your brain, and nervous system, allowing you a deeper relaxation. I have been working as an LMP for over 10 years and employ both the science, of certain techniques and the art and intuition of noticing where restrictions are. Each person and each massage is unique and I like to work with you to reach your treatment goals, so your feedback is very important. If you just want to relax, or have specific injuries, or would like deep tissue, we can tailor each session to meet you where you are at on this particular day.

A word about “deep tissue.” I have been trained to use my elbows and forearms, along with body mechanics to facilitate reaching the deeper layers of muscle. I do not believe in “no pain, no gain.” My style of deep tissue, would be gentle and specific. I also like to give suggestions for self care, for in between your massage sessions, in the form of stretching/ strengthening and hydrotherapy. I have learned from taking Yoga one must achieve a balance between strength and flexibility.

I started massage when I was a child, intuitively working for my parents, and then friends throughout the years at school. After a confusing teen journey to Tacoma, while pursuing mechanical maintenance jobs I found myself severely injured. My right arm had been trapped in a conveyor belt at work and I was unable to feel or use my right hand.
After a period of healing and self-reflection I found the inspiration to go back to school for massage. I graduated with honors from Pima medical institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 2009. After practice for a few years I found myself in another period of change. In 2010 my cousin passed away from an overdose, and I searched for meaning in work. I found purpose again through Yoga practice and a deepening understanding of the mind-body expression of pain.
I moved back to Seattle in 2013 and received a certificate of completion from Bellevue massage school.
I have spent the last year in practice with cooperative care with chiropractors and physical therapists. Working with chronic conditions and illustrating simple self-care techniques have brought a renewed sense of meaning to my practice.

My current goals are to be certified as a yoga instructor, and to travel to the Polynesian islands and then to Southeast Asia. Learning more massage and yoga and meditation.
I believe that our purpose on this planet is to heal, and our life is a journey where we are blessed enough to help others heal while they assist our process.
