Octavia Jones, LMT

From a young age Octavia was drawn relieving people’s pain through massage and she has spent her life working to help people heal themselves through physical practice. After earning a degree in Allied Health Science – Pre-physical Therapy, she began her career as a physical therapist technician assisting with rehabilitation exercises for post-surgical and injured patients.

She then decided to become a licensed massage therapist because she wanted to help people avoid surgery. Over the past ten years, she has learned Reflexology, Ashiatsu, Thai, Aromatherapy, Prenatal, Pediatric, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Craniosacral and Medical massage. Her innate talent and extensive study have given her the skills and knowledge to tailor massages to the needs and wants of each individual she works with.

Octavia’s love for holistic health drew her to yoga and in 2018 she received her 200hr yoga teacher training certificate, which has helped her incorporate yoga and into her art of healing
