Hello! I am Jody.
First off, I would like to thank you for finding my site, but really I would like to congratulate you on taking your health into your own hands!!! I hope you find helpful information and enjoy the site. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments!
What brought me to massage therapy was a need to heal myself. My mind, my body and especially my Spirit.
About 6 years ago, I started to suffer a multitude of health problems. I had never ending body pain, a year long bout with what could be described as constant vertigo, and reproductive issues. After MANY trips to the doctor, MANY blood tests, medications, surgeries, and tons medical bills, I decided I needed to take control of my life. I had hit my breaking point. I was stressed out from getting up at 4am everyday to take babies to the sitters and racing to work. I had to-do lists a mile long that took up all of my time when I was home. At one point, I felt that I was no longer an effective mother, wife, or employee. I didn't have that zest for life anymore. I worked hard, had no money. Worked out even harder, minimized my diet, but was crabby and unhappy most of the time. I felt deprived, overworked and underappreciated. I missed my kids and felt that they deserved better. I deserved better. And so began my journey.....
I had started a diet regiment that incorporated a "clean" eating plan, an exercise plan and massage therapy. After a month on the plan, my massage therapist convinced me to try something called Reiki. The magic I discovered with Reiki was incomparable to anything I had ever experienced. I didn't even really know why I was going! But after my first appointment, I felt as though someone had taken a 50# backpack off of my back. I could breathe again! I could think clearly! But most of all, I was emotional! I felt whole again. I no longer felt like the shell of a person pushing through ordinary life! Something awoke inside of me, and pushed me forward into my passion of helping others.
Aside from massage therapy school, I have spent the last 5 years working in a partnership doing Reiki and Energywork. I have also done further work in Polarity Therapy, Ayurveda, PNMT (Precision Neuromuscular Therapy), Cranial Sacral Therapy, Lomi Lomi (Hawaiian Massage), Lymphatic Massage, Accupressure, Chinese Medicine, Astrology, Numerology, Akashic Records, Sound Therapy, Crystal Healing, Shamanic Healing, and Mediumship Training. I am also a Reiki Master.
I am currently working on putting together some classes to offer in areas of: making wire wrapped jewelry, essential oil blends, cooking with fresh herbs and spices, weekly meditations and guided journeys, and mediumship readings. If there is anything you would like to see offered at Soulage, PLEASE contact me! I enjoy learning and sharing new things!
