Dave Weeks ~ Therapeutic Medical Massage, Prenatal
Dave Weeks has 20 plus years of providing bodywork, and has developed a unique and effective approach to Massage. Relying on listening and intuition, rather than habit or routine, he is able to provide you with an experience that is both enjoyable and therapeutic. You can receive the benefits of pain reduction, extreme relaxation, and also increased muscular elasticity, function, and mobility.
Dave is a New Jersey native, happy to call Santa Fe his home since 2004. Working as a free lance trumpet player in New York in the 1990’s, he realized he had a calling to the healing arts. Dave got his Massage License in 1996, while attending The Swedish Institute of Massage in New Your City. The curriculum there focused on treatment planned Medical Massage, and Shiatsu. He became proficient in Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point/acupressure, and reflexology. After graduating and entering the professional ranks he realized the parallel between Massage and Music was being a good listener, and learning from the best in the field to improve his skill set.
Through his experience in diverse facilities, Dave feels that patients make the most progress when working with practitioners in a comprehensive, multiple modality practice. And that is why he is happy to be part of the team at ElleWell.
Jaclyn Weber ~ Massage, Mayan Abdominal Massage
A bit of a barefoot medicine woman, Jaclyn continues to forge a winding path through the healing arts following the openings of the natural world and the blueprint of her heart.
While organic farming and studying herbal medicine, Jaclyn received the message to learn how to move energy through her hands. This led her to the Pacific Center of Awareness and Bodywork on the island of Kauai, where she studied Structural Integration and the art of deep listening in an 800 hour massage program.
Engaged by the sensitivity of the belly, the intelligence of the visceral organs, and the energetic seat of the Dantien, she went on to study professional Maya Abdominal Therapy with Rosita Arvigo.
Jaclyn utilizes plant medicine in her sessions as a compliment to the work. A certified aromatherapist through Floracopeia, she draws from an understanding of Aryuveda and 5 Element theory to support emotional stability, pain management, immunity, sports relief, skin vitality, and hormonal health. She is working on a therapeutic and holistic beauty product line.
Endlessly engaged by movement and spiritual nutrition, she follows both the path of Yoga and Qi-Gong, thus bringing a deep rooted quality of presence and energetic sensitivity to her clients. She is honored to be a teacher of the Moga Dao tradition.
Jaclyn is passionate about vibrant eating, believing food to be the first medicine, organic farming, and the art of living well. She lives an hour north of Santa Fe where she homesteads with her Love.
