As a nationally certified and licensed massage therapist with a master's degree in special education, Jolie Schiering knows the power that touch can have to reduce anxiety and show support. Drawing on this experience and more than 1,000 hours of bodywork instruction, Jolie tempers troubled sinews with a variety of massage techniques. Lounging in a private room, clients prepare for Swedish, shiatsu, or hot-stone bodywork as the scented tendrils of aromatherapy oils uncurl through the air. When not calming muscles as a therapist, Jolie uses knowledge gained while acquiring a personal-training license to compete in races such as the San Diego Marathon, and obtained CPR certification from Red Cross.
