Jessica Kowarsch — LMT, Advanced Pain and Stress Relief Therapist
Jessica is no longer accepting new clients due to her furthering her education.
Jessica Kowarsch is known for her gentle deep tissues abilities and is the ‘Queen of Relaxation Massage‘ at Ohana Therapeutic Massage. She specializes in relieving aches, pains, and knots without the constant ‘kill-me-deep-pressure.’ Jess provides relief to a wide variety of clientele. She reduces pain for those with fibromyalgia, and as one client with fibromyalgia stated, “I am able to do activities now that I used to love but had to give up due to the pain.” She de-stresses those who need relief from high-stress jobs, situations or moments in their life. Soon to be mothers find relief from the constant change in their bodies. And the elderly are able to move better, despite their aging bodies. She also enjoys helping those who may have had a bad experience with massage to overcome their fear that “all massages must be like that.” Listening and following though to what the client wants in their massage – whether it be pressure used or areas they want worked on the most – is what makes her sessions the most memorable.
Jess became a massage therapist for a very simple reason: She believes in a natural way of healing. “I honestly didn’t know what I wanted to do in college, even when I was there going for my A.A. Degree. And then I stumbled upon an informational packet of the massage therapy program and just knew this was it! Since then I have been happy to enjoy a career I love! I go home each day feeling as though I accomplished something great – helping others feel relief from pain and just be happy!” She also loves hearing how much she is helping people. As one client told her, “No other alternative therapy has helped me as much as this had. You found the source of the pain and it’s already going away with each treatment.”
Jess graduated from Lake Superior College’s massage therapy program in 2013, with 624 hours of specialized training. During her college career, she learned a variety of modalities including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Geriatric, and Pregnancy. She was also introduced to Lymphatic Drainage and Sports Massage.
In 2018, Jessica went to the World Massage Festival with her fellow massage therapists at Ohana Therapeutic Massage. While she was there, completed 24 hour of continuing education in Integrated Manual Therapy and Orthopedic Massage for Complicated Shoulder and Cervical Conditions, activated isolated stretching, and geriatric massage. Jessica is currently enrolled in the Nursing program and HCC.
Jess is proficient at Relaxation Massage, Pregnancy Massage, Hot Stone Massage and Therapeutic Massage. She joined the team at Ohana Therapeutic Massage in January 2014.
