A massage from Jessica Yvette is like two spa treatments in one. Jessica slathers bodies with organic coconut oil during her kneadings, which include Swedish massages or her personal favorite, lomi lomi massages. The coconut oil is primarily used to help her hands glide effortlessly over the body, but it also acts as an intensive moisturizing treatment for the skin. Plus, because it has anti-bacterial properties, it may help fight acne much more effectively than coating the back in toothpaste.
However, Jessica doesn't use the oil during every massage. Sometimes, she needs to use focused pressure to work out deep kinks, such as with her deep-tissue massages, and sometimes, her clients stay fully clothed while she stretches out their limbs, such as with her Thai massages.
When she's not reducing stress through massages, she's doing it through body-scrub sessions with aromatherapy, spa facial therapy, and reiki energy healing.
