Jess Taylor is a native to California and Utah and relocated to the triangle area in the Summer of 2017. She is a graduate of Healing Mountain Massage school located in Salt Lake City, UT and has been practicing therapeutic massage and bodywork since June of 2015. She believes that every body has the ability to heal itself and has witnessed this happen through the therapeutic power of simple touch. Her approach to massage and the healing arts aids clients in accessing this knowledge.
Jess is trained in many types of massage and bodywork but specializes in the following areas : Craniosacral Therapy, Swedish and Lymphatic Massage, Acupressure, Myofascial work, Reflexology, Aromatherapy and Cupping therapy. She focuses on working with the nervous, lymphatic and craniosacral systems of the body, which she feels are often overlooked in many pain syndromes. She is currently continuing her education in Craniosacral therapy with the Upledger Institute. Jess has also studied and received attunements as a Reiki Master.
Jess is a very intuitive bodyworker. She practices deep listening with each of her clients which means observing their body language, energy field, as well as listening to the client’s story and presenting symptoms. In doing this, each session is guided by the client’s individual body and system, rather than a strict ‘one size fits all’ agenda. In working this way, Jess practices deep stillness in her sessions as well as moving into rhythmic massage. Many clients relax deeply in her sessions and may wake themselves up with a snore or two every now and again. She has the ability to be guided to deeper core issues and patterns that may be at the root cause of the symptoms her clients are seeking relief from.
Jess has had great success working with clients suffering from headaches, jaw pain, neck pain, Back & shoulder discomfort, insomnia, anxiety, emotional pain, chronic inflammation, Sinus issues/pressure, and more.
Jess worked with a community acupuncture clinic in Utah for many years where she began as a patient, then a volunteer, on to front desk staff, then eventually opened her massage practice alongside her fellow healers. She strongly believes in community and that we all should have access to affordable healthcare and a wide array of healing professions. Jess has seen huge success when clients have the ability to receive both acupuncture and bodywork as an integrative approach. She is very excited to bring her knowledge and skills to share with Armonia Health and continue to grow and learn with and from the community here.
Jess has felt called to the healing arts since a young age. Whether she found herself listening to the waves of the California coastline, gazing into the Grand Canyon and it’s depths, or creating Flower Essences from her backyard garden in Utah, she is always infusing the magic of nature and biorhythms into her life and practices. Jess finds beauty in the ordinary and it is this simple approach that she brings into her massage and bodywork sessions. She is honored to work with everyone who shows up on her table, no matter where they come from and what they may be in need of.’
