Therapeutic Massage

Swedish Massage, Esalen Techniques, Hot Stones, Aromatherapy, Reflexology Techniques  Pre-Natal Massage

Jane Ellen Garbisch, LMT, is a licensed massage therapist with professional experience since 1991. She utilizes a wide range of massage techniques, with her specialty based on a style known as Esalen massage, a variation on regular Swedish massage, incorporating long, flowing strokes, firm kneading, pressure point work, all to a nurturing pace and appropriate depth. Her massages are a smooth blend of learned technique and personal attentiveness, integrating and grounding for the whole human being – an approach that makes her an excellent introduction to therapeutic massage for first timers as well as established clients.After earning a Bachelors of Science degree with a double major in Community Health and Environmental Studies, Jane wasn’t finding her true calling until she decided to pursue Therapeutic Massage as her vocation. Growing up in a big family (Jane is the oldest of 8!), sharing love and responsibilities, taking care of each other, and appreciating the strength of the family dynamic, she is a roll-yer-sleeves-up soul with strong work ethics and a passion for healing help.

Jane believes strongly that massage is an important element of a balanced health care regimen and not just a luxury. She has seen her work make a real difference in the lives of her clients over time; helping to reduce stress, migraines, neck and back tension, joint pain; chronic aches as well as acute problems. Incorporating many techniques including the Esalen and Swedish styles, Reflexology techniques, Aromatherapy, Hot Stones, and Pre-Natal Massage, she will customize the massage session to individual client needs.

With caring, nurturing touch, let Jane help you achieve deep relaxation, stress reduction, muscle tension and pain relief – you deserve it!
