I’ve had neck issues for 20 years. Jolene was able to restore much greater function in my neck after just one session. Jolene has been practicing massage, Reiki, and Craniosacal therapy since 2008 and her depth of experience shows in her practice. She seems to have a great gift for reading people’s bodies and pinpoint where we are storing stress. My session was so relaxing and restorative. Can’t wait to go back.  ~  Alanna

I am eternally grateful to Jolene as she has been able to hold me in care and safety enabling me to surrender into an unconscious process of meeting early childhood trauma, to meet my infant self and to learn to care for myself without going away.  I am becoming more whole because of Jolene’s care.  ~  DeGay

I live in Minneapolis and recently visited Portland with my son for three weeks to spend time with family who live there. I suffer from long term chronic pain which had been exacerbated by an accident I was in several years ago.  Shortly before I left on my trip to Portland, my warm pool therapist suggested to me that I might benefit from craniosacral unwinding so I looked into it once I got to Portland and found Jolene’s website and booked my first of three visits with her. 

This was a progressive cumulative treatment for me.  I fell deeper into a healing state the more time I spent with her and by the last visit, I had my first true unwinding.  It was something that I lack words for, but all I can say is that I feel the most hopeful that I have ever felt in terms of finding a way to live pain free once again.  I have never felt this feeling I have right now – it’s a feeling of potential and connection to my body that I can only describe as physical spirituality, but I also feel that I have just touched the tip of the iceberg.  I was honestly quite confused after my first session with her about what she was doing, but by the third treatment, I was in shock by the unwinding that took place in my neck and I was so sad that I had to leave to go back home.  I was beginning a journey with Jolene – she is a guide to a place of healing.  I can attest to that.  I have less pain already and have significantly limited the amount of pain medications that I used to take to cope with the pain.  Whatever malady you may suffer from, I highly recommend that you see Jolene and begin a healing journey with her and consider yourself blessed that you live near her! 

I am a true believer in this treatment now and only hope that I can find a therapist that lives near my home that can carry on the healing that she initiated within me.  Jolene also provided me with resources to help with my recovery that I can do on my own.  Jolene is a very intuitive and genuine person.  Do not rule out additional sessions with her if you don’t see success on the first or second visit.  She awaits for your body’s invitation to allow healing, so if it’s not working right away, it is not necessarily her failure.  She is a guide and you will see that if you let go, and agree to allow your body to take the steps forward on the journey to self healing, it will work for you too.  I feel very confident in that.  I can’t wait to see Jolene again!  She is a remarkable and talented healer.  ~ A true believer in Minneapolis, Stephanie

THANK YOU so much Jolene.  Your crystal clear presence is such a gift!  ~  anonymous

I came to Jolene for help with a minor neck injury…so minor that I almost felt embarrassed admitting to it.  Not only did she immediately assess the underlying seriousness of what had happened to me, but she quickly identified several other points of longstanding pain that, even after years of craniosacral therapy, I’d assumed I was just going to have to live with.  We both agreed that the injury was a gift, meant to get me into her office.  My body instantly recognized Jolene’s intuition and ability to heal; it surprised me how eagerly my head, neck and limbs responded to her technique.  Her compassionate demeanor made me feel completely safe to cry, talk, move around and release whatever emotions and beliefs came to the surface during her work.  ~  Chelsea

I am thrilled to say that since I last saw you, I have felt more myself than I have in years.  I don’t think I had realized just how much pain and restriction had changed me until you helped me return to balance.  I’ve been able to do all the activities that neck and shoulder pain had kept me from doing, and I can’t tell you what that means to me.  I haven’t had the ‘foggy-brain’ that left me feeling sluggish and slow, and my moods have been consistently energized and positive–another thing that neck/shoulder pain had taken from me.  THANK YOU for helping bring my body back.  I don’t feel like I’m trapped inside it anymore, and I can’t describe how empowering that is. ~  Amber

Jolene has helped me release areas of chronic pain and tension in my body that I had carried around my whole life. I was able to realize and let go of old grief and anger that I didn’t even know I was holding in. She has an intuitive sense for where the body is ready to heal, and her kind and calm presence creates a safe and warm space for the healing to take place. I highly and enthusiastically recommend her services to anyone who wants to feel better. ~  Keelin

Jolene’s energy is so nurturing.  She just KNOWS where you need the healing.  Her hands take you to a place where you can be held to release anything no longer serving you.  She is an incredible space holder and it’s unlike any other bodywork I’ve ever known. ~  Erin

Jolene is nothing short of a miracle worker. Her massage is not superficial and for people wanting to go beyond relaxation and into true healing and therapy, Jolene is the person who can take you there. It is easy to be honest with Jolene, and her intake/assessment at the beginning of the appointment sets the tone for what is to come. She truly listens and intuits not just the presenting issues but really what is at the root of the matter, and then she recommends a specific massage/healing session tailored exactly to you. She is a petite woman, but what strength and power! She is almost magically gifted at being able to listen to a body and know where to touch and how to heal. I have never had such surreal, out-of-body, or in-my-body experiences with massage as I have had with Jolene. She takes it to another level. I trust her completely, and strongly recommend her for anyone who wants to go a little deeper and turn the experience into one of honest healing from the inside out.  ~  Karen

I recently received another amazing session of Shiatsu and Craniosacral bodywork from Jolene!  She creates a safe and supportive healing space where I feel completely free to release physical/emotional holding patterns and express my vision for health. Her touch is incredibly intuitive in nature; she knows how to find the source of your pain and how to guide you to a place where your body can leave it behind.  I’ve had the honor of receiving bodywork from Jolene before and can honestly say that I’ve always felt compelled to return to her even when my budget is limited – her integrity, firm but gentle touch and the grounded energy she brings to a session are worth it!  ~  Amy

Jolene is a natural born healer. Her body work helped me to overcome a shoulder injury that had hindered my full range of movement for over a year. She has a very caring and nurturing way about her, and is highly skilled in her arts.  ~  John

Jolene’s presence and demeanor are very healing and gentle. It feels like she really cares about each patient and comes up with specialized ways to treat each patient’s different bodies. Her outside research that she does on patients really show that she truly cares about her patients. She is a good listener, and brings more to the table than you can ever expect. I also appreciate the fact that she is not pushy with her services. ~  anonymous

Under the description for healer in the dictionary they should show a picture of Jolene.  She has the most incredible, strong and powerful healing energy I have ever experienced in any body work.  Her intuition for where to focus to make the most of her time has been consistently spot on.  I never feel rushed and although there are times I would like to just live on her table I have always felt content, cared for and satisfied at the end of my time spent with Jolene.  This is energetic, healing body work at its absolute best. ~  Josh
