Jodie has 20 years of experience as a Registered Massage Therapist specializing in CranioSacral Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, and Energy Healing. Jodie believes that every trauma we experience goes to the core of our being, affecting us on all levels: physically, mentally, and emotionally. Her bodywork sessions are integrative, targeting the root issue(s) and facilitating release from the nervous system. These sessions are covered through insurance under RMT.
My gift is being able to tune into the body, its energetic output, and what may be blocked or need attention. I help guide my clients to a place of greater awareness of what their body might be trying to tell them, through their symptoms. I provide a safe space of exploration and healing potential. I believe all comes from within, including healing.
In my Bodywork Sessions I primarily address the fascial and nervous systems. These two systems are integral in negotiating the body's ability to resolve trauma and stress. In order to access these systems, a light touch is necessary: therefore, I do not do deep tissue massage treatments. I believe deep tissue work can drive trauma further into the body and in some cases activate the fight, flight or freeze response. My intention is to encourage trust in the body and psyche of my clients, so that they can in turn trust themselves.
My experience comes from 20 years of working in the field of bodywork (RMT), wellness and spirituality. My credentials include: RMT since 1999, Reiki Levels 1-111 & Master since 2005, Shamanic Healing training since 2008 with FOS, Healing Earth Lodge (Sweat Lodge) Facilitation Training & Supervision since 2016 (with Heloisa da Silva Porto), Practical Astrology Training with Kelly Surtees 2012, CranioSacral & SER since 2006 with the Cranial Therapy Centre & Upledger Institute, Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner Training with The SE Trauma Institute since March 2019. I have also been influenced and inspired by the rituals and written work of Malidoma Patrice Some.
