About the Practitioner

My Journey:  Jamilah

I developed chronic pain as a pre-teen and struggled with it for decades, through mis-diagnoses and many treatments that offered only temporary relief.   In 2015 I was finally diagnosed with Lyme Disease and began regaining my health.  This journey sparked an interest in holistic healing and spiritual growth.  I developed a passion for techniques that support the body in healing itself and in relieving chronic pain.  My bodywork style is a unique blend focused on increased mobility, relaxation and client education. 

Healing Philosophy

I believe that through taking the time to heal myself, I am influencing the entire world.  This belief forms the foundation of my healing practice.  When I receive regular bodywork and take the time to be still, I am more grounded and calm, better able to live a heart-centered life.  This allows me to impact others in a positive way and to live in greater appreciation of our beautiful world.  It is my intention to hold space for you as you explore your healing journey.

Education and Certification

I am licensed massage therapist working in Grand Rapids, MI. Since graduating from the Michigan Institute of Healing Arts and Sciences in 2008, I have attained more than 400 hours of continuing education through several well known institutions.  I studied Trigger Point Massage with Amber Davies , CranioSacral Therapy and Somato Emotional Release through The Upledger Institute, MyoFascial Release through John F. Barnes MyoFascial Release Approach and Vodder-Style Manual Lymph Drainage through The MLD Institute Int'l.  

I opened A Healing Touch in 2010 and expanded my business in 2018 to partner with other Licensed Massaget Therapists.

In 2019 both Bhavna Dixit and Shelly Durbin joined my practice.  Shelly is a Licensed Massage Therapist with a specialty in Manual Lymph Drainage.  She is trained in Pranic Healing and is a Reiki Master in both the Usui and Ryoho traditions.  She offers Intuitive Readings as a stand-alone service or as part of a Comprehensive Energy Session. She also offers Upledger CranioSacral Therapy.

Bhavna has a B.S. in Ayurvedic Medicine and is certified in Medical Massage Therapy through the Blue Heron Academy. She specializes in therapeutic massage and pain management through a variety of massage techniques. 

Jamilah is a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance, certified in Yoga Tune-Up and Mindful Vinyasa instruction.  

She is also a certified personal trainer through the International Sports Sciences Association.

She sells doTerra essential oils that you can have shipped directly to you from my site at https://www.doterra.com/US/en/site/fiveminutestohealth


Professional and Versatile

We have had the honor of seeing many people for their first bodywork session.  It is our intention to create a safe, open atmosphere so that you receive what it is you are seeking.

Clients privately disrobe to their comfort level, or change into appropriate clothing for the selected treatment (such as a bathing suit for MyoFascial Release).  You may bring your own music on an i-pod to listen to during the session, or listen to the music that we provide. We want you to be comfortable.
