Jacqui has been a multi-licensed spa therapist since 2015 working as a massage therapist, esthetician, and certified lymphedema therapist! She is delighted to be joining the Deep Tissue spa and offering a wide range of services. She has completed more than 15,000 hours combined hands-on experience. Her style is a blend of focused deep tissue and intuitive therapeutic work often utilizing joint mobilization techniques, however her true specialty is Manual Lymph drainage. She witnessed first hand the healing benefits of this powerful therapy having worked in a wound clinic in Chicago, IL. She loves anyone serious about their skincare and wanting to step up their game, especially those in the ‘anti-aging’ years. She loves to perform advanced treatments such as peels and microdermabrasion and equally loves to share her vast knowledge of the latest and greatest in results driven skincare. Like most estheticians doing extractions makes her happy!
Jacqui’s passion is helping people regain balance, feel great in their bodies and receive truly beneficial results through massage and skin care. In addition to the above, other specialized massage techniques she enjoys are “Thai for the table" (which is especially helpful for tight hip flexors, runners or those who sit all day) PNF stretching and fascia release. She is also trained in Reiki and Ashiatsu which is massage done with the feet.
I truly believe any self care service whether, massage, facial, or MLD, when taken to full advantage with care, knowledge and expertise, can be used as an amazing therapeutic tool and potent weapon for maintaining health and wellness.
I came to massage via a very blessed 25 year career as a professional dancer. Having my body be my livelihood, it has been my greatest teacher leading the way to everything I know in the massage world. In addition, I was a scholarship recipient of the Norton School of Lymphedema where I gained my Manual Lyphedema certification which is most excellent to help a wide variety of issues including, pre and post surgeries, allergies, headaches, anyone wanting to enhance weight loss, chronic pain ( it is a natural analgesic ) and much more!
Feel free to ask me about this soothing healing technique.
I equally hold a passion for skincare having gained experience in every kind of spa setting there is from 5 star luxury hotel spas to medical spas and everything in between. Anyone wanting to up their skin regimen and achieve truly noticeable results, I would be delighted to impart my vast knowledge of the newest, latest and greatest in the realm of skincare!
We have one body, one life, it is my privilege to help you seize the moment by assisting and keeping the equilibrium of health, wellness, beauty, (and sanity) optimal. Three things I love: my Super senior wonder weiner Willy, ( doxie pup ) the ocean and Dunkin’ coffee!
I came to learn of MLD ( manual lymph drainage) because Lymphedema was a terrible symptom of the disease that took my beautiful Mom home in May of 2015. It was the ONLY therapy out of the plethora of therapies and medicines that helped ease her tremendous pain as it educes a high analgesic effect by directly stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system ( our calming nervous system opposite of flight or flight). I have her to thank for introducing me to this amazing therapy and know somewhere in the orbit of destinies and ‘meant to be’s’ she has guided my education and opened the doors for me to share and now give to others what helped her so much. Her presence is with me with each client I humbly serve.

AMAZING experience. I have a complex injury that never healed right, and Ana is a wizard at understanding the muscles and tendons and how they all interrelate…and how to help improve mobility and ease pain. I left feeling rejuvenated!
Had my first massage at Deep Tissue Spa and I really enjoyed my experience. It’s hard to find the right go-to spot, but it looks like I found it. My therapist was thorough with her explanations of what muscles she was going to work on based on our conversation and she also gave me recommendations on stretches for my problem areas, including my neck, shoulders, and arms. Look forward to returning!
