Rooted (520) 326-8300
. . . a music-and-dance-loving, tree-hugging, sushi-eating, pro-breast-feeding, natural-childbirth-supporting, life-learning Virgomama of two great kids.
Jaimie's path to massage therapy was a seed planted at the beginning of her motherhood journey. Her first born arrived a month early, and she was taught infant massage techniques to help her baby integrate earthside . . . and it worked. Through mothering, she became a La Leche League Leader, a hospital-based, certified nursing and lactation assistant, a certified lactation educator, and a doula. The time spent supporting mothers led her to eventually seek out her massage certification.
Jaimie's passion is empowering mothers throughout their childbearing years and beyond. She has over 15 years' experience working with pregnant, birthing, postpartum, and breastfeeding women.
She is a Certified Perinatal Massage Therapist, specifically trained through Carol Osbourne's Pre and Perinatal Massage Therapy Program to safely offer nurturing and therapeutic touch during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. Read all about pregnancy and postpartum massage here.
Jaimie offers massage therapy to those not expecting, as well. She can address your need for relaxation, help relieve pain, and be part of your self-care plan. Jaimie approaches healing with an integrative and customized approach that can include Swedish, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, and neuromuscular technique.
Her future goals include teaching prenatal and postpartum fitness through movement and dance, as well as additional training and certification in the areas of therapeutic taping, perinatal therapy and pelvic health and awareness.
Jaimie considers the beautiful Sonoran Desert her home, and loves being part of the local drum and dance community.
Q&A with Jaimie!
What is your hometown?
I was born in Yonkers, NY. But I love Tucson best, so I have adopted it as my hometown.
What is the farthest place you have traveled to?
Salvador, Bahia, Brazil
What's the last book you finished?
Reread The Clan of the Cave Bear. Don't ask me why.
What's your favorite thing about Tucson?
By far the arts, music, and dance community. For a "small town" we are blessed with at least 4–5 dance classes with live drumming every week. We have incredible percussion talent and some downright amazing and inspiring teachers.
What would you choose as your last meal?
What’s your favorite movie?
Oh jeez, I'm not a so-called movie person. But I love Forest Gump, Dangerous Liaisons, Avatar . . . I guess along the lines of those epic blockbusters.
What’s your massage superpower?
I seem to have a knack for finding the exact spot people that bothers people . . . which, being a therapist with an ounce of training, better not be hard . . . but sometimes it is elusive, and I forget trigger point referrals, but I find it anyway. I guess that boils down to intuitiveness.
What do your clients say about you?
The feedback that I have received the most has been "you have amazing energy." People say that about me outside of massage . . . so, I'll take it.
If you weren't a massage therapist, what would you be doing instead?
My alternative plan was to finish nursing school. Also, I will likely eventually be a midwife. If money was no object, I would be learning to play more samba instruments and learning more dance . . . yeah, pretty much would head to Brazil and be full-on immersed in the music and dance there. Luckily, I get to do a bit of that here every week. Oh, and capoeira. I still want to be a capoerista.
What’s one thing that surprised you after you became a professional massage therapist?
How much I enjoy it, and how much I love working with hot stones. I totally geek out about the stones . . . I get very OCD about "the right stones."
