Hello, my name is Marlayna Jack and I am a Licensed Massage Practitioner in Kirkland, Washington. I studied massage at Lake Washington Technical College in Duvall, Washington and Ananda Massage School For Transfers in Port Townsend. While I was in school I was able to see the amazing ways that massage can facilitate healing. I became particularly interested in working with clients who had chronic pain conditions or injuries. As soon as I completed school I jumped at the opportunity to take an Orthopedic massage class with Massage Hall of Fame member James Waslaski. I fell in love with the pain free treatment techniques he had to share. I am now 2/3 of the way through his certification program. After the second Orthopedic Massage class that I took, I asked the instructor if he knew of any modalities that would further benefit my clients with chronic pain conditions such as ankylosing spondylitis. He recommended Erik Dalton’s Myoskeletal Alightment techniques. After seeing Erik Dalton’s work, I realized that it would GREATLY benefit all of my clients, from the hard working office workers who spend much of their day on the computer to my clients who have small children who use them as jungle gyms. I will be certified in Myoskeletal Alignment in June 2011. My goal is to provide quality manual therapy to all of my clients while keeping my costs afforable.
