What People Are Saying

We've loved having Jessica teach at The Swedish Institute. Her continuing education classes are fun and relevant to the modern practice of massage therapy. Students from across the US have appreciated the blend of science and anatomical review, specialized hands-on techniques chosen from 20+ years of practice, and the integration of mindfulness as a driving concept in self and client care.  Jessica has been a true asset to our Continuing Education program, and we look forward to having her return to teach more courses this year.

 

—Tania Ogullukian

Director of Alumni Services and Continuing Education, Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences

Jessica’s course deepened my perspective on how to approach working on professional musicians and singers.  She highlighted the various physical and mental struggles they endure beyond their performance itself such as hauling their equipment and having a completely different life rhythm than most of their loved ones. The best take away was how important it is to address both their specific and overall ailments to engender the most profound bodywork possible. In the year and a half since I trained with Jessica, she has continued to share resources and learning opportunities.
