He takes great pride in helping clients solve the puzzle of discomfort they may be experiencing by using a science and behavior-based approach with a great appreciation for using research-basedmodalities. He believes educating clients to the subtle nuances of their bodies and how they can make changes to impact their wellness and ultimately give them back control of how they feel in their body.

Jackie Cusimano

LMT - Massage Coordinator

Jackie has experienced firsthand the power of self-care and how it can completely shift your life. Her Philosophy is that when you take care of yourself, whether that be with massage, yoga, or ideally a blend of many self-care modalities, you can better show up in all other areas of life as well as care for those around you from an overflowing cup.


Jackie stepped into the world of wellness right after high school in 2011. She graduated from the New York College of Health Professions in April of 2013 and received her License in Massage Therapy that same year. Since then, she has broadened her studies, always staying up to date on pain science as it evolves. She believes in the power of education and empowerment. She takes a Client-based approach, so she prefers to encourage clients to take their wellness into their own hands. Usually, that means the perfect treatment plan might be a mix of massage with her AND small, easy to incorporate lifestyle changes. She has also studied modalities like Thai Massage, Reiki, cupping, and PNF. She has been practicing integrative massage for close to 10 years; she uses pain science and the modalities she has learned to create an intentional and individualized session for each client.


Through Jackie's massage practice she discovered her love for Yoga. She completed Yoga teacher training back in New York in January of 2016, where she studied for 200 hours. She immediately went on to teach yoga and has been doing so ever since. Much like Jackie's massage practice, her teaching style is very broad. She is trauma-informed, and encourages ALL students, no matter their experience level, that they can practice in the same room. Jackie always does her best to show up authentically so that each student feels safe and comfortable.


Outside of the Massage room and Yoga studio, Jackie loves to hike, play with her dogs, travel, try new restaurants, and work out at the gym. She is extremely passionate and enthusiastic about life, she hopes that she can share that with all of her clients and students!
