At the end of a commercial fishing season in Alaska, feeling tired and sore, Jan received her first massage. It was then that she knew exactly what she wanted to do. She completed the Certified Massage Therapy program at the Heartwood Institute. She has been practicing massage for 20 years. Her expertise is deep tissue massage, a focused technique used to help with chronic pain and injury rehabilitation. In 2006 Jan became a practitioner of Structural Integration, a series that strives to balance and align the body through lengthening and releasing the fascia.
