    My Approach

    Making massage therapy more accessible

    Jordanna's interest in the transformative power of touch began during her over three and a half years of residence at the Esalen Institute. Esalen is the birthplace of a wide variety of bodywork modalities including: Esalen Massage, Deep Bodywork®, Sensory Awareness, Cortical Field Reeducation, Feldenkrais, and the Traeger Method. She immersed herself in the study of these modalities under the tutelage of several master practitioners. In addition, her knowledge of the body-mind was shaped by extensive coursework in Gestalt Therapy, Soul Motion Dance, and yoga teacher training in Raja-Style Yoga. Her work is a fusion of these healing practices; an attuned and flowing dance that is deeply therapeutic.

    Incredible practitioner in so many ways
    "Jordanna is a healer with immense knowledge about the human body. Her energy is calm, confident and knowledgeable; her hands are intuitive, precise, strong and healing."

    - David T

     

    Another great session with Jordanna

    "I've been seeing her for almost 2 years on a regular basis, initially for an injury and she helped me to gain mobility, strength, and confidence in my improving health. Over time I've relied on her for her soothing, intuitive, skilled, and wonderful touch. I used to search around for someone great I could see regularly and not have to think about who and what and all those details. Now I feel I've found the person to work with. I highly recommend her."

    - Tara K

     

    Dances with her hands

    "Jordanna is a skilled and graceful practitioner. Her strokes, which move seamlessly from one to another, are intuitive and deliberate. I felt that she was in a conversation with my body and I could trust her with attending to the particular needs of each part of me. Jordanna is grounded and nurturing. Her energy alone supports a feeling of relaxation and calm. Throughout the course of our session I felt a deep release. My body really gave itself over to her care. I'm deeply grateful for her work."

    - Claire W

     

    By far the best

    "I have been getting massages for about 30 years and this massage was by far one of the best. I felt immediately comfortable and relaxed and found the experience to be one of deep nurturing and healing. Jordanna was sensitive to an area of my body that is painful... I've been looking for a masseuse who I liked enough to return to and finally I have found her!"
