Honoring the Divine in You!
Jenifer Mahanes, LMT, YT, Reiki Master - Owner of Sacred Body Massage & Healing Arts
I am a Divine Being having a human experience.
I have found the more I am in service to others the more my life is healed.
We heal through connection! Connection with another compassionate nurturing being. I believe when we live authenticly listening to our hearts and following our passions we heal our lives and Live in the Divine Present.
Sacred Body is a heart centered place of healing. I work with individuals to help facilitate healing through Compassion and Grace.
Sacred Body Massage
is founded on the belief that I have found my passion and purpose in life as a massage therapist and bodyworker.
I believe the body is a sacred vessel and my intent is to treat all with Love, Compassion, Respect, and Reverence.
I listen with my heart and respond with hands of nurturing compassion to reduce pain and suffering, educate, & empower clients about their bodies and ways to improve their quality of life.
The Divine Light in me Honors the Divine Light in you.
I welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and provide you with the best "State of the Heart" service in the profession of Massage and Bodywork.
I specialize in several modalities:
Reiki, Oncology Massage, Cupping Therapy, Prenatal Massage, and Thai Yoga Massage. I have over a decade of experience as a massage therapist in multiple settings
(MUSC Children's Hospital, the spa industry, CHOA oncology clinic, on Folly Beach with Surfer's Healing, and in my private practice) and
I love what I do!
I have been a NCBTMB Board Certified Licensed Massage Therapist since 2004, a Reiki practitioner since 1999, reiki master since 2008 and I have been practicing Yoga since 1992 receiving my Yoga teacher certification in May of 2008. That very same year I opened Sacred Body Massage & Healing Arts as a private practice inside Holy Cow Yoga Studio.
I am a former Charleston County school teacher who is enjoying her second career and true calling as a massage therapist, bodyworker, Reiki Master, and Yoga Instructor.
"I set out to save the world and realized I could actually accomplish more by making the world feel better one person at a time!"
I love being able to listen to my Heart, express my talents in the healing arts, follow my Bliss, and make a positive difference in the world.
I believe that intention is a vital aspect of massage and hold in my Heart the highest intent for everyone I touch.
I am also a life long learner and lover of knowledge, embracing continuing education opportunities with excitement! I believe each new modality I study enhances my ability to aid in healing and to ease suffering .
" Every massage holds vast potential for benefits to spiritual, emotional, & physical healing and well being."
I have over 10 years of experience in the spa industry, started a successful volunteer program called "Healing Hands" using massage for pain management in the Children's hospital at MUSC, volunteering at the Charleston Hematology Oncology Associates and also maintain a private clientele.
I have a passion for working with "Mommies to be". Expectant mothers have very special physical, emotional, and spiritual needs that I try to address through massage. My interests in the miracle of pregnancy led me to acquire a specialized certification in Prenatal Massage from The Virginia School of Massage in Charlottesville, VA.
I hold certification and 90 hours of training in Thai Yoga Massage which I received in Thailand.
After beginning my massage program at MUSC I realized I had a need for knowledge in the field of oncology so I received certification in Oncology Massage in January 2010 and offer in home and studio massages for people living with cancer.
In May of 2010 I received certification in Cupping Therapy, an ancient Chinese Medicine Technique which loosens tight muscles, increases circulation and speeds the healing of injured or traumatized muscle and soft tissue.
I believe it is my responsibility as a body worker to educate clients about their bodies.
"I encourage clients to consciously participate in their own healing, listen to their bodies & embrace their own personal power to improve their quality of life and sense of well being."
With that in mind, I received my Yoga Teacher certification in May of 2008 through the Holy Cow teacher training program and have taught and co-taught at Holy Cow. I share this knowledge and my personal journey of yoga with clients and encourage them to explore the benefits of yoga.
I currently teach yoga in private sessions , Folly Beach Community yoga (Yoga on the Edge with Jen2),and at Mitchell Elementary School in a volunteer program that brings yoga into every classroom! I love getting on the mat, being the biggest kid in the class, and sharing the joys and benefits of yoga with open, receptive, and beautiful young hearts!
"What I hold in my heart people feel when I touch them and my heart holds the highest intention to
Honor Your Body and the Divine Within."
"Jenifer has a warm heart, an engaging spirit and the highest of intentions for everyone she interacts with, this is immediately apparent to those she touches."
