During the customized massages she performs at the Anisha health center, licensed massage therapist and certified holistic coach Jamie Smith doesn't just listen to what her clients have to say—she also listens to their bodies. By adjusting her strokes to target and heal the areas that require attention, Jamie can help restore wellbeing to those who need it most, including accident victims, stressed professionals, and those who Jamie believes are the most deserving: caregivers and health-care professionals who don't take time to care for themselves. Massage sessions are enhanced by Quintessence Oils, the therapist's personal line of food-grade essential oils that she hand blends in a range of therapeutic scents. Jamie also uplifts the rest of the body through the flexibility training of somatic coaching, the health plans of holistic nutrition counseling, and space-organizing services that help declutter any room and ensure food and body-care products are free of unhealthy ingredients and witches' spells.
When not rebalancing her clients minds and bodies, Jamie takes the time to give back to her community by volunteering for Bike MS and organizing benefit events for the Oregon Humane Society & Feral Cat Coalition.
