Education and Certification

I am a Licensed Massage Therapist working in Grand Rapids, MI.  I graduated from the Michigan Institute for Healing Arts and Sciences in 2008.  I specialize in relaxation, improved function and relief of chronic complaints through a unique combination of client education and hands-on treatment.  Most clients see me for my Signature Session in which I combine techniques from my training in John Barnes Myofascial Release, CranioSacral Therapy, Manual Lymph Drainage, cupping, heat application, kinesiotaping and Trigger Point Massage.  I have helped clients with a variety of issues such as headaches, stomach aches, depression, anxiety, back/neck/arm/shoulder/leg/foot/joint pain, TMJ, Bell's Palsy, ankle swelling and stress.

Professional and Versatile

I support people in being more present and centered through a variety of bodywork techniques that help to identify the underlying causes of stress and pain. 

I create a safe space for clients to deeply relax and unwind as I listen to their spoken needs and follow the strain patterns in their tissues.

I have had the honor of seeing many people for their first bodywork session.  It is my intention to create a safe, open atmosphere so that you receive what it is you are seeking.  I welcome feedback throughout your session.  I am trained in a variety of techniques and want to work with you to discover what brings you the most relief.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Jamilah made me feel at ease from the moment I met her. After talking with me she tailored a bodywork plan that left me feeling more relaxed and comfortable than I thought was possible. I look forward to future sessions!

Jamilah is amazing - Personal Health reviewed each time so she focuses on your areas most in need, yet completes the service. Always feel so refreshed for days later.

Jamilah is AMAZING! She is very kind-hearted and gentle! I honestly feel like a new person every time I leave from a massage with her. I would recommend her 100%!!

I felt heard :) I was apprehensive about having therapy on my neck and Jamilah asked how I was doing and if the amount of pressure she was using was ok.
