Jessica Mascher CD(DONA),
I approach my work with a very holistic perspective. I believe that people need to be treated for the entire being, not just what "hurts." This being said, my touch is very intuitive, slow, focused, and both superficial and deep, depending on what needs change. I provide extra attention to the areas of the body that need it, while still addressing the surrounding areas with the intention of attaining balance throughout the entire body.
Expect homework! Our work as massage therapists is far more impactful and long-lasting when the client is willing to do their homework. I provide my clients with suggestions of stretches, various heat therapies, and lifestyle considerations that I believe could assist in bringing the relief you are looking for.
I did my training at Cortiva Institute of Massage in Seattle, WA. I provide relaxation, treatment, deep tissue, pre and postnatal, and intraoral massage. I specialize in pain and discomfort in the upper cervical spine (neck), headaches, head tension, and jaw pain.
I am also a DONA certified Birth Doula. I love the world of birth work and am very happy to have two career focuses that blend wonderfully together.
In my free time I enjoy anything outdoors, cooking, reading, spending time with my partner, watching movies, and traveling.
