Jamie Clark

In early 2000, Jamie was working as a nurse on the Orthopedic and Neurology floor of a hospital and decided that she needed to change careers. She knew that she could still help people heal their bodies, but in a non-invasive and holistic way, so she started massage school. Almost a year later Jamie was teaching nutrition classes at the same school she had just graduated from. They then asked her to also teach anatomy and run the student clinic floor, which led to co-directing then directing the massage program.

Over the years Jamie has developed a varied style and toolbox of massage techniques that enables her clients to not only feel better but also to learn how to stay well by learning specific stretches, better nutrition and lifestyle choices.

She is also a Certified Health and Life Coach and Certified Crystal Healer and Yoga Teacher.
