YomassageTM

This incredibly healing group session is a fusion of relaxing and supported positions with hands-on massage therapy. Bolsters, blankets, and blocks support the body to allow for complete relaxation. Each pose is held for 5-10 minutes while Jenelle comes around and performs Thai-style massage on different parts of the body.

This event is limited to 5 people and lasts 90 minutes. Yomassage not only allows your body to stretch and relax in restorative poses, but also increases circulation and provides myofascial and trigger point release.

To learn more click HERE.

Sessions occur in Jenelle’s home studio, unless otherwise noted. She also periodically partners with yoga studios around Portland. See the schedule above.

YomassageTM and Offbeat Art Class

This summer, I will be partnering with the amazing Eva Kelley with Offbeat Art Parties to offer a one-of-a-kind experience, combining the beautiful meditative aspects of creating art with the healing power of massage.

Events will include a guided but free-flowing art class, with all the materials you need. You have the chance to explore your creative side and connect with one another. Then we will break for snacks and tea, followed by a Yomassage session.

Events will be held in studios around Portland. Sign up HERE to receive updates on the upcoming schedule.

Self-Care Workshops

Self-care is how you take your power back

Learn techniques for caring for your body at home, during pregnancy and beyond.

Moms have unique challenges and stressors on their bodies: pregnancy brings new aches and pains, or intensifies old ones.

I will show you have to use simple and inexpensive props, such as foam rollers, therapy balls, cupping, and more. Through effective and consistent use at home, these can:

  • Ease pain and enhance self-care
  • Release muscle tension
  • Free up fascial adhesions
  • Open up the body
  • Enhance natural movements

Best of all? It’s possible to receive benefits from the tools in just minutes a day! Come learn how or reach out with any questions.

Two Options

I offer two exciting options for learning self-care tools, depending on whether you want to bring your little ones or leave them at home to just focus on you:

Mama & Me

Babies and kids are welcome! Come with or without the little ones.

There’s a toy basket and a shelf of books and puzzles.

Mamas get to take care of their bodies, model good self-care, and connect with other moms and build community without having to find childcare!

Just Mama Time

Leave the little ones at home and come focus on just you! 

Connect with other moms and build community.

The schedule of upcoming events is listed above.

Bring the gift of massage home!

Thai Massage Workshops

Massage is an incredible gift you can give your partner or loved one and Thai massage is so fun to practice at home. Come learn simple tools for giving a simple but effective massage. No experience, massage table or lotion required! Thai massage can be done on the floor, a bed, or seated.

Workshops will include an easy-to-follow and simple routine, demonstration, and guided instruction.

These workshops are offered just a few times a year, at Jenelle’s home studio or at locations around Portland. Check out the schedule HERE or sign up to receive notifications HERE.

Interested private instruction? Email me!

Three Options:

1. Couples Thai Massage

Couples and partners learn how to give and receive safe and effective massage. Come with your sweetie or a friend. Great for date or girls nights out!

The schedule is listed above.

Inquire about private instruction.

2. Family Thai Massage

Parents learn how to give simple, safe and effective Thai massage to their children, suitable for ages three and older.

Growing up is hard! It can be painful too. Growing pains, tummy issues, sleep trouble, anxiety, trouble calming down - all things that massage can help with. It’s also wonderful for strengthening the bond between parent and child.

Tickets cover one or both parents and one child.

Click here to inquire about private instruction.

Private instruction is the best option for including multiple children.

3. Prenatal Partner Thai Massage

Thai massage is perfect for easing many of the muscular pains and discomforts of pregnancy. And while no substitute for regular professional massages, having a partner who can safely and effectively offer massage at home is a wonderful addition to a pregnant mama’s self-care routine.

Private Sessions

Though these are offered as group workshops or events, I’m happy also to offer private sessions for more one-on-one instruction.

Email me with questions and to inquire about custom pricing.

Important note about massage workshops - they are not intended to replace professional massage and do not qualify you to practice massage on the public.

Other

I’m always thinking of new ways to share the gifts of massage and self-care!
