My name is Jacki, I have been massaging since 2013. My techniques are very clinically targeted opposed to full body swedish sessions. My sessions consists of clients clothed, preferablly loose fitting like gym clothes and area targeted.
There seems to be two types of massage; swedish relaxation and deep tissue. When people want more therapeutic session, they run into a problem of either getting too much pressure in the deep tissue, or not enough time was spent in the problem area because of the full body look when it comes to swedish. My techniques work deeper without pushing deeper, its important to have clients having the opportunity to get effective work and meet their goals and standards. I want to educate, provide a different perspective of clinical massage to clients who are looking for help when those other types of massaged haven't been exactly successful.
Great service friendly staff Jacki is beyond perfect!
First thing is to find out what the client's goals are for the session then customize a tailored made plan for the session its self

In 2011, after working as a front desk associate for Massage Envy in TX, I started to talk to the therapists about the field and what it entails. They informed me that if I had a chance to get my education in NY that I should because NY has the highest hour requirements in the country. I have a 1,000 hrs of school along with many continuing education classes to be proficient in the clinical side of massage

Always ask what they specialize in and have multiple therapists for different goals. A practicioner should have a good base of techniques that match what they do. I've met therapists who say they do everything, which to me is almost impossible and makes me think they maybe subpar in their techniques. My sessions are not full body, clothing stays on and are more focused on the medical and clinical side than a therapist who does full body swedish. I'd suggest to have a therapist like me for clinical issues and have a therapist who is talented in swedish if you enjoy those types as well so the client can be sure they know what type of work they are getting that day. I've met therapists who are extremly talented at swedish massage that I cannot replicate, but on the other hand those therapists can't replicate my work either so its good to have options.
Rolfing bodywork is a system of soft tissue manipulation that affects the body's posture and structure by manipulating the myofascial system (Fascia). This technique is a perfect alternate choice for "Deep Tissue" work. Pushing deeper is different than working deeper when it comes to breaking the pattern of chronic pain cycle. This technique is an effective way to work on deep layers of the body causing postural patterns without the overwhelming feeling of soreness, fatigue and bruises. Rolfing gets to the cause of the problem not the symptom.
A technique that helps loosen scar tissue and a quick application of pain relief for acute or tender areas using more of light to med pressure.
