Jennie Isbell Shinn, M.Div., LMT
I bring my entire massage techniques toolbox to every session. Over 22 years of practice, I have studied a lot of modalities. Before each session, we talk about what's going on in your body and in consultation we agree on areas of focus and any special modalities to bring in beyond traditional Swedish massage, including hot stones, reflexology, joint mobilization, assisted stretching, and Reiki.
Massage sessions are $140-$200 depending on duration. Year-round Island residents please inquire about discounts.
I've been a massage therapist since 2001, and I am Board Certified by the National Certification Board or Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork.
Thai Bodywork, also called Thai Yoga Massage, is an amazing form that combines massage, joint mobilization, and assisted stretching. It's done fully clothed on a mat on the floor, which allows for working deeply in places that just can't be worked effectively with oil on a table.
85 minutes session $180
I'm also available to travel to your location. I tack on a $50-80 travel fee per trip (depends on what town and what season), not per client, so consider this for home spa days, wedding parties, and as a wind up for date night!
Yoga Therapy uses the practices and understandings of Yoga to address an individual's needs. In yoga classes, you do the teacher's practice; in a private session, you do your practice. (Postures, meditation, breathwork, energetics, mudras, and creation of a home practice that works are included in private sessions.) I am reconized by the International Association of Yoga Therapists as a Certified Yoga Therapist. I book single sessions, but it's best commit to a minumumn of 3 sessions so we can make a plan, revise it, and see what changes unfold for you.
Discounts for commitment.
$100/ 75 minute session.
Reiki is a hands-on energy work technique that originated in Japan. I offer private Reiki sessions for times when you feel like your need to "recharge" or your primary concerns are deficiency and a need for deeper rest. I have been doing Reiki sessions since 1999, and have known it be be helpful to clients with insomina, a general sense of depeletion, anxious mind, and both doubt and curiousity about the realm of "energy" work.
Reiki has become more popular in the West over the last two decades, and much has been uncovered and researched about it's origins and efficacy.
60-70 minute session, $100
I teach workshops in Reiki 1 and Reiki 2, and also a thrid-level class called Advanced Techniques
"Jennie was INCREDIBLE. Just walking into her space made me feel at ease and ready to receive the massage. She was fantastic, taking direction when needed, and her voice is the most calming voice I've ever heard! Would recommend 100%!"
"I like Jennie's gentle, quiet, well paced, delivery of and solicitation of information, both seeking & offering guidance for a finely tuned individual session. I am relaxed in the trustworthy atmosphere Jennie creates, which aids my ability to deepen my attention and focus. I also appreciate Jennie's light sense of humor and genuinely expressed humility. I look forward very much to the certain growth I will attain under her care."
"Jennie is a superbly intuitive massage therapist. I am not sure how she knew, but for my first time she used exactly the right amount of pressure without my saying a thing. I felt relaxed and refreshed and rewarded. My daughter also came and was equally happy with her experience. She was also very patient with us because we were late and got a bit lost. But once we got there everything was smooth."
