Intent to Heal
Years of sitting at a desk in the corporate world took its toll of Jodi. She suffered from chronic pain in her neck, shoulders, and mid-back before seeking out a massage therapist for help.

She now helps others facing the same issues she once battled using Swedish, deep-tissue, and aromatherapy massages.
