Jami (Massage Therapist)
I love and thoroughly enjoy the art of healing with my hands and positive energy.
I was trained at Space Coast Health Institute in Melbourne Florida, one of the leading massage schools in the country.
I have been providing therapeutic massage services to clients for over 10 years. I tailor my massages and techniques to suit the needs of each client and methodically incorporate all forms of massage and relaxation techniques.
I enjoy helping people achieve whatever it is they are looking for. Whether it be for relaxation or to help with side effects from disease. I massage numerous clients with debilitating diseases such as Cancer and Parkinson’s disease. My daughter, a breast cancer survivor, was able to complete chemotherapy with a drug that causes neuropathy (nerve degeneration in hands and feet) in over 90% of patients receiving the infusion. Through massage, she was able to counteract the neuropathy symptoms throughout her entire treatment.
