“...I frequently experience tenseness and pain in my back, which are compounded because I have scoliosis. I have suffered with this condition for years. But, since my initial session with Jill, these problems have not recurred for months. My sessions with Jill were invaluable.” Marty Milligan, former client
“...I walked with a cane for 7 years due to an accident on the job. After Jill worked on me I didn’t have to use my cane anymore. She is very professional.” Denise Levitz, former client
“…Thank you Jill for your healing touch and powerful technique. It is such a wonderful feeling to be back living life and feeling joy.” Vanessa McPherson, former client
“...because we do love our clients…there have been situations where we have not been able to help them as much as we like…it has taken a long time in finding someone that does what Jill does…she has a unique treatment…it is more of a rehabilitation treatment…she is just marvelous with the help she gives…” Brenda Strand Co-owner, Stress Control Massage
“Out of all the classes I have taken in the past this was by far the most valuable...” Maritta Lee, LMT former student
“...based on her own personal experience with pain/dysfunction, Jill teaches affectively and with great knowledge and compassion…Thank You!” Christine Hunter, former student
When babies are born, they already have billions of brain cells, and many of these aren’t connected yet. They form connections through crawling and by experiencing new odors and sensations. The infant brain is twice as active as an adult brain for the first three years, and this gives them a great potential for learning. Massage is one way to help develop their brain.
Research has shown that massage for infants and children has many benefits. Nurturing touch is essential for helping children develop into well-adjusted adults.
With newborns, colic can be an ongoing issue. Often, infants suffer from tight stomach muscles which can cause painful spasms. They may cry regularly, which causes them to swallow air, and this can lead to gas pains and painful, tight, rigid abdomens.
These are complex developmental conditions. Autism affects the child’s development of normal language, and the ability to respond appropriately to his environment. Many children with one of these conditions can have sensory and tactile system malfunctions, making them more averse to certain stimulation or sensory issues like taste, touch, sounds, noise or certain odors.
Isometric muscle and body balancing has been known to help with sensory integration issues, and can be beneficial in the reduction of withdrawal symptoms, aversion to certain stimulation or attention-deficit issues. Children who have had this therapy may stay grounded longer, stay on task easier, show less erratic behavior or less aversion to touch or withdrawal.
Many have issues with going to sleep and staying asleep, and this technique can contribute to a more restful sleep with fewer disruptions during the sleep cycle.
