About Us

For over sixteen years I have been a licensed massage therapist and  have worked with a wide range of clients. This has been an amazing part of my life! I love massage therapy and being present with change that can occur with a variety of techniques. Since Covid-19, I started exploring ways that I could help my clients even more. This lead me to Clinical Somatic Movement and becoming a Certified Instructor. Clinical Somatic Movements are gentle and slow exercises that retrain the nervous system to relax chronic and habitually tight muscles. Private clinical somatics sessions are available in Ashland, WI or virtually.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Jen is such an intuitive and caring massage therapist who has helped me grow strong after a serious injury!

    Jen's skills are phenomenal. Her training in Asian techniques, her deep knowledge of sports massage and her professionalism all contribute to her being a top-notch massage therapist. Her committment to excellence shows. I am so fortunate to have found her practicing in my area and I will gladly return!

  • Jen is an awesome therapist! She is very knowledgeable and skilled at what she does. I've received massages for 18 years and her treatment is the most effective I've ever had. She truly cares about her clients and that energy yields positive results for each of us!

    Jen spent time to discuss my massage needs and offered alternatives such as heated bamboo sticks to try. The pre-massage discussion was helpful as she provided a preview of what I could expect during the massage. And the massage itself was very pleasant, reaching deep tissues and ending with profound relaxation and a feeling of well-being. During massage she would elicit specific feedback as to effectiveness. The debriefing afterward focused on future needs for better health including helpful suggestions. Having experienced well over 50 massage therapy sessions, this massage easily ranks in the top 5 and when I'm in town again I will assuredly schedule another with Gavia Massage.Thanks so much.

  • Jen does a great job figuting out your needs and using various methods to loosen your muscles and help you relax

    Jen's technique and attention to detail (ie, my body and it's issues) was great. Her heart and hands, great too. And I left feeling way better than I have in months. Yay!

  • Jen is awesome. Whether you want body work to simply relax your mind or have a specific area worked to help an injury heal faster, Jen can do it. She is very intuitive with her approach but also listens to feedback during the session.
