JASON EMERY MOORE, LMT
JASON EMERY MOORE has gone where compassion has lead him over the years. Initially, he worked as a human rights and community organizer both in the US and South Africa. For the past 13 years, he has followed compassion and inquiry into massage and bodywork practice.
For Jason, each of us is the expert of our own experience, a unique accumulation of movements and heritage. To work on this hallowed ground, he focuses on what is happening in the moment – curious about how to best be of support and compassionate to the healing needed. Jason himself has suffered chronic pain for over a decade and has developed his approach as a result.
Foundational to his massage practice is his training at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California. Known around the world for its flowing and integrative style, Esalen Massage® sets the bar for what massage can be. Combining long, full body strokes and integrated stretching, this style creates a deep quality of balance with each session. Indeed, he "fell through the table" during his first session!
While training at Esalen, Jason also undertook special study in Deep Bodywork®, the deep tissue modality based on Esalen Massage. This deep, structural technique is prized for both effectiveness in chronic issues and the ease of movement created by each session. Now Jason is one of the few Deep Bodywork practitioners.
Jason also incorporates craniosacral therapy, a subtle and powerful technique for working directly with the spinal column, head and nervous system, into his massage practice. Particularly effective with neurogenic pain and idiopathic conditions, or conditions of unknown cause, craniosacral therapy has brought brought great relief to Jason personally and to clients in his practice.
His approach has made him particularly effective treating chronic pain and PTSD-related physiological conditions. He has worked in tandem with psychotherapists in developing clients' capacity for mind and body connection. He is currently introducing into his practice new techniques for treating trigger points and spinal misalignment into his practice.
Jason balances out his life with his love of acting and movies, travel, and a new attempt at being a gardener. Tips are welcome! He is also a long-term student of gestalt practice, a type of community and personal awareness practice, which deeply informs how he is in the world.
