Jane's Bio

My schooling began WAY back in the day WAY back east. I remember my first love well at the age of two when I fell in love with horses. But soon after music and acting became a very large part of my youth. I majored in music, dance, theater and art for the first few years of college and then got the urge to get into the health care field. That led me to physical therapy which somehow led me across the country to California and Chiropractic College. I graduated as a Doctor of Chiropractic from Southern California College of Chiropractic in 1991. I took some time off to get married, have kids and to finally get very involved with horses. I decided to end the extended time off by getting my Equine Massage Certification at the world renown Equissage in VA. In 2002. From that point on I have enjoyed a most satisfying career providing bodywork for all types of horses from back yard pets to high performance and Olympic horses throughout Southern California.

After many years of clients asking me if I do human work, I finally decided to take the next step and get my (human) Massage Technician Certification at Healing Hands School of Holistic Health in Escondido, CA. I became so fascinated with the quality of education I received at this school that I just could not resist furthering my knowledge and enrolling in the full program to become a Holistic Health Practitioner. This program exceeded my expectations beyond my wildest dreams and truly provided the expansion needed in my education – without a doubt.

I am honored and eternally thankful to have so many awesome clients who believe in me to the point of trusting themselves and their bodies to the bodywork - as the healing, that is just waiting to take place within all of us, awakens.

Aloha and Namaste,


Aloha: "Aloha" is the essence of relationships in which each person is important to every other person for collective existence.

Namaste: acknowledgment of the soul in one by the soul in another. "Nama" means bow, "as" means I, and "te" means you. Therefore, Namaste literally means "bow me you" or "I bow to you."

What is Holistic Health? www.healinghandsschool.com
The philosophy behind the practice of holistic health is to enhance the natural healing ability of the body by boosting the immune system. Unlike a health practitioner who emphasizes on safe methods of diagnosis and treatment of a patient, a holistic health practitioner takes care of the overall health of the person, that is physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, bio-energetic and socio-cultural aspects.

Alternative medicine forms a base for practicing holistic health. The major treatment methods of holistic health include reiki, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), herbology, homeopathy, chiropractic, nutritional counseling, yoga, acupressure, massage therapy, reflexology and breathing exercises. According to the American Holistic Health Association, holistic health improves the health and wellness of a person.

Taking a holistic approach to your life helps to create a balance in your personal life, family relationships, community activities, and work environment. Find "wholeness" through acknowledging, honoring, and healing all your individual parts - mind, body, spirit and emotions.
