THE FINAL STAGE OF HEALING IS USING WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE -Gloria Steinem

Jamie Shadid was drawn to the world of bodywork and holistic health after her own health issues began in 2013 while living in Brazil. After returning to the US she began working as Office Manager and Assistant to Dr. Stephanie Mines, Founder of The TARA Approach, a unique trauma-informed healing method that Jamie became certified in after experiencing profound shifts in her physical/emotional/mental well-being.

Jamie Shadid was drawn to the world of bodywork and holistic health after her own health issues began in 2013 while living in Brazil. After returning to the US she began working as Office Manager and Assistant to Dr. Stephanie Mines, Founder of The TARA Approach, a unique trauma-informed healing method that Jamie became certified in after experiencing profound shifts in her physical/emotional/mental well-being. Jamie went on to complete a one-year program in Massage Therapy at The Colorado School of Healing Arts in Denver, Colorado to further her knowledge of the human body and how she could be of service to clients. 

Just before finishing the last quarter of Massage Therapy school Jamie was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer at the age of 32. Shocked, but determined to see the hidden blessings in a cancer diagnosis at a young age, she signed up for the Oncology Massage course. As she went through the Oncology Massage training while simultaneously dealing with her diagnosis she gained clarity in her vision of how her personal experience and training would lead her to be of service to unique populations of clients. Recognizing that unresolved traumatic experiences had gotten stuck in her body and was part of what led to her cancer diagnosis, she is particularly interested in helping others to release trauma and overwhelming experience through the many tools she has learned. Through deep personal inquiry and learning to constantly let go of what doesn't serve her, Jamie has allowed her health and personal challenges to catapult her into a career of helping others.

Prior to entering the bodywork world Jamie lived/studied/worked and traveled abroad for 10 years, mostly in Spain and Brazil where she gave English classes. She is fluent in Spanish and Portuguese and has a Bachelor's of Arts in Humanities with focuses in Sociology, Spanish and Anthropology from Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado.
