Our bodies are being worked on so many levels. The body is amazing in how it heals and restores itself, but sometimes it needs a little help. There are so many ways that massage can help our bodies do its job. Massage not only releases tension and stress, it also boosts lymph flow, releases toxins stored in tissue, improves circulation, stimulates digestive organs, and so much more!

 

Jessica believes that each person is unique and structures her therapy sessions to fit the individual client’s needs. Jessica is a licensed massage therapist, certified in prenatal massage, and is a Reiki Master. She received her massage therapy training from the National Massage Therapy Institute in Falls Church, Virginia and became licensed in May 2012. She received her Reiki training and attunement from a private teacher in March 2011. Jessica is trained in Swedish, prenatal, sports and deep tissue masage. In the near future, she plans to expand her skills to include CranioSacral Therapy.

 

As a child, Jessica used to give her older sister neck and shoulder massages. She has always enjoyed helping others. She loved helping others so much she became a kindergarten teacher and taught for 3 years. Even though she loved working with those young minds, she felt she needed something different. That’s when she received her Reiki training and soon after deciding that she would pursue a career in massage therapy. From there her interest in the alternative medicine field blossomed.

  • "Jessica Ruhl is an amazing massage therapist. More than that, she is an amazing person. After I had seen Jessica for a while, with the same acute pain in my hip that physical therapists could not diagnose, Jessica said, "You know, massage may not be able to fix this pain. I recommend that you see (a specific chiropractor). It turns out that my sacrum was twisted away from the rest of my spine. Over the past few months, the chiro has adjusted my body and the physical therapist has used massage and simple exercises to bring my body back into alignment. It's amazing how much easier it is to walk when your sacrum isn't going left and the rest of your spine is going forward! Fantastic diagnosis and recommendation, Jessica!"

Her back has really been bothering her lately and Jessica was willing to work on her. I was unable to attend this first appt (my older daughter brought my younger).
