Bodywork, Reiki, and End-of-Life Doula Services

How can I serve you?

Licensed Massage Therapist, Certified End-Of-Life Doula, Reiki Master, and Teacher.

Hello and Welcome! My name is Jessica Kilbourn (but please call me Jess if you’d like!). Thank you so much for being here. I welcome you in ALL the ways you are showing up.

 

My practice is an inclusive one. Under all of our identities, labels and the baggage we carry, we are born, we breathe, we have a heart,  brain, blood, muscle, bone, and we die. “It is not our differences that divide us, it is our inability to recognize, accept and celebrate those differences” (Audre Lorde). I see you and celebrate you, just as you are.

 

If you have found yourself at my site, there is a reason for that, take a few moments to pause, reflect and ask yourself:

 

What brought you here? What are you looking for?

Healing support and facilitation?

Death and dying support?

Relaxation, comfort, and calm? 

A place to lay down your burdens and become embodied?

A place to share your grief?

Maybe you aren’t even sure what brought you here, and that is ok. Whatever it is, be open to this calling and reach out. I thank you for putting your trust in my hands. 

Sending warm wishes and harmony for your path ahead.

 

Be well,

Jess

 

BODYWORK SERVICES

Each session is unique. It is guided by your concerns and also by what your body is telling me it needs at the moment.

CranioSacral Therapy & SomatoEmotional Release

CranioSacral Therapy (CST)  is a gentle, profound hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system. It is a light-touch, manual therapy that releases tensions, as well as restrictions deep in the body, especially in the nervous system.

Reiki (and Distance Reiki)

A beautiful energy healing technique. Reiki means the universal life-force energy. Offering Reiki is the art of activating, directing and applying this life-force energy to promote energy balancing, healing and maintenance of our well-ness and our innate whole-ness/holy-ness

Therapeutic Massage

Offering Myofascial and Neuromuscular techniques. These modalities focus on increased blood flow, lessening restriction and focused work on injuries or areas of concern.

Lymphatic Drainage (LDT)

The technique creates a vacuum for lymph to flow up toward the heart and be moved out toward the organs of elimination via gentle hands-on movements. LDT is a gentle technique that works through the body's interstitial and lymphatic system to activate the body liquid circulation and stimulate the functioning of the immune and parasympathetic nervous systems.

I had been under chiropractic care for about ten years for my TMJ, and regular adjustments kept my symptoms somewhat manageable. But I can honestly say after ONE session with Jessica, my clicking jaw disappeared!
