Jacquie Lynn Holland, Reiki Master, Reflexologist, Energy Spa Treatments
"In stillness be like the pine. In movement be like clouds and water." - Qi Gong proverb.
Jacquie Lynn (JL) has been a fundamental part of the VCA team since the spa’s inception. She has been engaged as an Esthetician and Body Care Specialist since 1996, and working with Silk Road Aromatherapy and Tea Company since 2001. She received her original Esthetics certification at the Academy of Excellence, and being a Reflexologist, Reiki Master, and Energy Systems Healing practitioner, she emphasizes the importance of integrating multiple healing modalities for body, mind, and spirit. Her philosophy is that stress-relief and subtle energetic stimulation synchronize to facilitate the body's natural ability to heal, thus giving rise to beauty and strength inside and out. She has honed her skills as a holistic spa practitioner, and will happily share her expertise on the healing properties of teas and essential oils.
JL prefers to work with fresh, organic, plant-based ingredients that utilize the restorative effects of aromatherapy, such as are found in the Silk Road Tea skin and body care lines, with which she is highly experienced. She offers her clients helpful tips on how to maximize holistic spa treatments with healthy habits and provides self-care techniques which can easily be adopted at home. The comfort and attention provided by JL extends well beyond the vivifying experience in the treatment room, as she places the utmost care in setting her clients up for success in wellness outside of the spa.
Clients sometimes come to her with the idea that receiving a professional holistic spa or healing service is merely a treat reserved for special occasions. However, once they experience JL’s relaxation-based approach to treatments, they leave recognizing how easy and enjoyable it can be to be an enthusiastic partner in their own wellness.
“Simply through breathing and receiving nourishing subtle body treatments, there is the opportunity to regain awareness; valuable somatic awareness. Post-treatment people are usually keen to take inventory of the products they have been using as well as the lifestyle choices they have been making, and to do away with whatever does not support the health of their skin and body. I wholeheartedly enjoy facilitating this shift in the approach to homecare. Not only does it prolong the results of treatments enjoyed at the spa, but it also empowers people to take charge of, and take pleasure in, their holistic health. I’m grateful to continue to immerse myself in the ancient healing art of Traditional Chinese Medicine, mentor my clients on holistic living, and serve our community at VCA."
As dynamic as her practice, JL is also a wonderful educator. She has taught at the West Coast College of Massage Therapy, and has trained other practitioners at VCA on the unique products and services offered at the spa. She specializes in Reiki and has many gifts to share with her clients on the benefits of this alternative modality.
