Integrative Services Suite

 

Jin Shin Jyutsu

A Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ) practitioner uses both hands to hold a combination of Safety Energy Locations (SELs). SELs are the area in the body that can become congested and can lock up. When this happens, energy cannot flow freely. This pattern will cause disharmony or disease.

As the SELs release and balance is restored, the client experiences phyiscal, mental and spiritual harmony. By using our hands and placing them on certain areas, we can open the SELs and release the congestion. The energy flow can now move uninterrupted, down the front of the body and up the back. When all the energy is flowing in harmony, there is a sense of well-being and happiness. It is in this state, that healing can occur. To learn more about Jin Shin Jyutsu, please click here.

To book an appointment with our JSJ practitioner, please stop by our front desk or call us at 330.325.6102. Ask about our 1st session introductory rate! For a list of services, please click here.

Ada

Massage - Ada Friend, LMT

Ada has had a passion for massage for years, so she decided to make it her career hoping to make a difference in the medical field for others. By introducing alternative medicine, she hopes to show that healing can be done through massage therapy and that there are other options that may eliminate the dependency upon medications alone.

In this art of therapy, Ada really enjoys finding the best individualized treatment to help someone not only relax, but to ease pain by listening to the muscles and watching the response. She also enjoys the act of stretching either done actively by helping the person or allowing them to passively be stretched. Ada is looking forward to meeting many new people and helping where she can.
