  • Healing the Mind, Body, and Soul: An Introduction to Ancestral Bodywork

Greetings! Peace and Blessings. I'm Jovhannah, a licensed massage and bodywork therapist in North Carolina. I am also a Reiki Energy Healing Practitioner, a Crystal healing practitioner, as well as certified in various other healing modalities. In addition to that, I am a spiritual life coach. I am truly excited about the work I do because I get to blend all the amazing things I have learned into one sacred channel and do work that I genuinely love.

My mission is to help liberate bodies, minds, and souls from pain, tension, stress, and trauma. I take a holistic approach to healing and continuously learn different modalities to tailor my services to each client's specific needs. While I see clients for regular massage sessions, where they get a full body massage for relaxation or treatment-focused sessions targeting particular challenges or muscle groups, I also have clients who seek the holistic experiences that I can provide.

It has come to my attention that people of color, including myself, often do not seek out alternative therapies like massage or other forms of bodywork. This inspired me to become a healer and a coach, as I have a deep desire to change this narrative. I want to show the black community how these services can be beneficial in releasing stress, trapped emotions, trauma, and pain, allowing them to feel connected, grounded, and whole.

My journey into becoming a massage therapist and healer was a transformative experience. Massage, for me, represents liberation. Liberation from pain, trauma, and stress that manifests in our bodies, minds, and souls. It is through my own healing journey that I have come to understand the power and effectiveness of massage and bodywork. Now, as a practitioner, I am honored to hold a safe and sacred space for my clients on their own healing journeys.

I am determined to make holistic healing accessible to the black community and educate them about the benefits of these services. I want to create awareness of why these practices are not only beneficial but also necessary. I am grateful for the opportunity to build a beautiful business that focuses on serving and nurturing others.

In addition to massage and bodywork, I am passionate about integrating spiritual practices into my sessions. I am looking forward to crafting rituals and ceremonies that can bring back ancient traditions and create significant moments in people's lives, like rights of passage for girls when they experience their first moon cycle, or ceremonies around child loss and childbirth. These practices are vital for women's well-being and should be honored and tended to with care.

To further spread awareness and connect with more people, I will be hosting local and virtual events. I am thrilled to share everything that I love and create a beautiful space for healing and liberation. Through my work, I hope to continue empowering individuals and facilitating their release of emotional and physical burdens.

Some of my favorite techniques include cupping therapy and lymphatic massage. Cupping therapy is highly recommended for its numerous benefits, and I have seen incredible changes in my clients while performing lymphatic massages. The lymphatic system stimulates detoxification and improves overall wellness. For clients seeking post-operative care or relaxation and detoxification benefits, I offer individual sessions and packages.

As a therapist, I am constantly expanding my knowledge and skills. I enjoy taking classes and learning new techniques to craft amazing and customized experiences for my clients.

Currently, my availability is limited, but I look forward to opening my calendar soon. It warms my heart to see the positive impact I have had as a therapist and the feedback from the clients I have already served. I am grateful for the beautiful expansion and opportunities for healing that lie ahead.

Thank you for tuning in to my journey. I am Jovhannah, and I invite you to follow me as I share wellness tips, exercises, stretches, and spiritual guidance. Let us connect mind, body, and soul as we embark on this journey to health and wellness together. May you be blessed, and I'll see you again soon. Peace.
