Hi - I'm Jacquelynn!

I'm a Registered Massage Therapist, Thai massage practitioner, and reiki practitioner. I love self-care and cats and I'm here to help you separate yourself from a life of pain and stress.

My exposure to PAIN began at the ripe age of 3. I began suffering from SEVERE migraines - my parents had my brain MRI'd for fear that something was growing in there (there wasn't - knock on wood) because when I writhed in pain I looked like I was having seizures. I was in the hospital every week and I didn't even know the words I needed like headache or migraine. I could only say that my head hurt - like hammers had struck me or a bomb was set off inside my head. My poor parents.

With time I learned my triggers and I developed quite an impressive pain threshold.

That's why when I was 18 years old and I was rear ended by a minivan while riding as a passenger on a motorcycle I was able to stand up and walk away - even though my back felt like pins and needles and nothing all at once. In reality I was a bouquet of wrecked and I stayed that way with warped posture imbalances and nerve damage for years.

Chronic overuse and posture imbalances caused me to dislocated my shoulder. And severely sprain my ankle. And both of my wrists. But I didn't know because I was an energetic healthy looking 20 something year old with an inhuman pain tolerance.

It was once I started feeling electrical sharp shooting pains in my spine that I decided I might actually need help. I didn't have my RMT training at this time and I took for granted the amazing targeted approach physio took with my posture. Despite my ignorance and ego it was commitment to yoga that helped me get by for a few years.

Then COVID struck. No more yoga. No more movement or wellness at all.

I felt my body go through a wave of rest and recovery and then into a downward spiral resulting in a stagnant couch potato.

I was wrapping up my massage therapy education and everything was coming together when I crossed paths with a physio that also approached recovery from a postural perspective.

I learned quickly.

My issues transformed into a privilege: I was the perfect guinea pig. To best serve my clients I explored all of my therapeutic techniques, stretches and strengthening exercises against my laundry list of pains and found remedies for all of them. It all started with posture imbalances.

In 2021 I became officially licensed and my new name was Jacquelynn Gould, RMT and I was ready to rock n' roll.

My mission is take all of the skills and life experiences that I have and pay it forward with the clients who KNOW pain too.

I believe most massage therapists don't get pain and that's why they treat clients with general relaxation massages. But I work together with clients and customize therapeutic massages with sport and Thai techniques that release and reset traumatized tissues.

Now, my body works for me in ways that seem impossible for a petite 5'2" female. I've never felt better.

I began as the wounded and found myself a healer on the other side.

Are you ready? I am.
