More Information

Jacqui has been a teacher at FSM since 1987. Her areas of expertise include Kinesiology, Sports Massage, Professional Boundaries and Ethics, and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.  She currently teaches Kinesiology in the main program, where she she utilizes both clay and surface anatomy (drawing on the body) to enhance the student’s learning experience. Jacqui has combined her love of and participation in sports with her 25+ years as a practicing massage therapist. By specializing in treating injuries and chronic tension patterns in her clients, she integrates her clinical experience in the classroom. Her love of teaching and passion for understanding the biomechanics of movement create a multidimensional approach for her students.

What Jacqui Has To Say:

After almost 30 years in practice, my work is still evolving. My own unique approach to deep tissue work feels more than anything else like a blend of intuition guided by my in-depth study of the body. Kinesiology, orthopedic assessment, they are all intertwined. I look for that gentle edge of pressure that feels effective but not to the point of pain which causes tension in the body.

From “The Guest House” by Rumi:
This being a human is a guest house.
Every morning is a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
