“Jill’s massages are amazing. Cured a chronic headache I’d had for weeks.”

Eileen M.

I am currently based in Essaouira, offering massage as one of my services.

I started my studies of the body with somatics — experientially in my own body and other bodies using movement, therapeutic touch, and anatomical books — weekly from 2005-2008 with Deborah Jinza-Thayer in Minneapolis, USA.

I also studied the body and efficient movement mechanics as part of the contemporary and post-modern dance worlds.

In 2014-2015 in Rishikesh, India, I studied and gave full-body massage that included multiple massage techniques, which I typically summarize as mostly Ayurvedic and Swedish (and Indian head massage!).

I then studied foot reflexology in Bali, Indonesia in 2015 and worked that into my full-body massage. I have also learned lymphatic, acupressure, Thai techniques, and formally studied the myofascial and meridian system that I address in both bodywork and yoga.

After using some deep tissue techniques for a while now (from that super-blend I learned in India), I studied it formally to bring more goodness into the mix!

What does this all mean?

I integrate an eclectic background that provides a skilled and unique experience — by creating physical clarity, space, and ease through deep manipulation of the muscular system while addressing the lymphatic, myofascial, and meridian pathways, transforming your mental, emotional, and physical state.

I prefer to feel what’s needed per person and am honored to take people deeper into awareness, and unwinding tension, through their bodies and minds.

“Last night the lovely gentle Jill came to my riad and gave me the most beautiful and skilled massage of my life. She was so present, so connected and at the same time professional and boundaried. I highly recommend her services.”
