Personally, I came to Jill because I was suffering desperately from life altering chronic leg pain and dysfunction from a wildly (to me) mysterious source. Jill calmly and expertly explored my body, using her encyclopedic knowledge of Trigger Point referral pain patterns. In short order, she had identified the root source of my pain, and in an epic moment of relief, she helped me to regain hope that there was a chance to heal. From that moment, I began an epic journey to reconnecting with my body in ways I never thought possible. My pain has since resided, but along the way Jill has become a mentor, a teacher, and a true friend. Jill’s body of work is a work of art. She uses her body to figure out why your body is hurting, and that is a special talent that nearly everyone out there could stand to benefit from; truly magical.
Professionally, I own a gym called Bare Hands CrossFit. Jill’s service an integral part of what I offer to my clients in dealing with long-standing chronic pain, recent tweaks, injuries, or folks who just want to explore their bodies and figure out why they are so “tight.” I confidently refer anyone who seeks relief from pain, tightness, soreness, and stress. I love each of my members like family, and I know that I am putting them in the hands of someone who truly cares. The greatest part of Jill’s art IS THAT IT ACTUALLY WORKS. In her career, Jill has saved countless folks from eminent surgery, RX meds, and the despair that comes with pain.
If you are in pain or suffering from dysfunction, stress, anxiety, or depression, in most cases, doctors and specialists claim your only option is invasive surgery or pills. Jill knows better, and she has the track record to prove it.
Her firm yet careful work (never discarding my needs and intuitively knowing how to work my edge to be maximally effective) have supported my healing journey in ways the doctors and myself hadn’t thought possible. Jill genuinely cares and I give her credit in how far I have been able to come in a short time. Jill is a life changer!
Jill has greatly assisted me in restoring life balance by encouraging a celebration of that which lives within. My life has been transformed and my increased Self-understanding has grown out of exposure to Jill’s beautiful yoga practice, her magical Thai Massage sessions and her openness in sharing deep connection with everyone. If you want to experience something incredibly healing on so many levels, I highly encourage you to flow into a Thai Massage session with Jill. Wow. You can float your way back home!
Jill then presented a series of Yoga Heart Opening workshops that showed me her skills as a yoga teacher. She has the ability to bring her students into a state of presence that is joyful and full of hope and positivity. I attended a weekend retreat that Jill co-facilitated where women experienced profound healing in relationship with one another. That experience has inspired me to bring deeper levels of trust, honesty, and support to my relationships with other women.
When I went to Jill for bodywork, I found her to be so knowledgeable, and her intent for my healing so pure, that I was able to completely relax into her competent hands. As a result, just one session restored mobility and reduced pain in my knee that I had experienced for months. That was followed by another session where she relieved 5-year old chronic pain in my shoulder. Since that session, I’ve been able to use my shoulder without the usual pain and dysfunction.
Jill brings lightness, joy, love, and healing to all that she does. She keeps herself centered in a state of grace that makes her a powerful healer. The complete presence she brings to each relationship, to each activity, and to each moment shows me the sweetness possible in life. She is a treasure.
I have since practiced Thai massage, meditation and yoga with Jill numerous times and have grown a stronger since of well being. Her beautiful energy, spiritual erudition, and charisma shines in all that she does. I will forever be grateful that our paths have crossed. I look forward to continuing my growth as a yogi at heart – physically and spiritually through Jill’s guidance.
