“It is rare that one can receive such a wonderful treatment by a skilled and heartfelt teacher! I immediately trusted Shelly to introduce me to the practice of Jin Shin Jyutsu and felt held so completely and tenderly that it was easy to let go and feel into the work and movement of my energy. After our time together, I felt centered and at peace, and able to reflect on the feedback she offered. I feel comfortable recommending Shelly’s work to anyone interested.” ~ Vicki, Mindfulness Utah
“I have done energy work for a few decades but knew nothing about Jin Shin Jyutsu. After the death of my father, and upon the advice of a friend, I decided to attend a few sessions with Shelly. I was surprised at how quickly I started to feel different energies moving throughout my body while Shelly created a serene and safe space. Shelly answered my questions as I asked about what I was experiencing and at times I was so relaxed it was almost transcendental. I felt very peaceful and calm during the sessions, and felt very grounded and clear for days afterwards. None of my previous experiences with energy healing were as powerful as my Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions with Shelly. If I lived full-time in Salt Lake City, I would be visiting her every week!” ~ Lori
“My skepticism about weird energy workers kept me away from energy healing until I met Shelly. I could see how grounded she was so I began Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions with her. I found them very relaxing and enjoyable at first but soon found I was going deeper and deeper into layers of myself that I did not know existed. I have had transformational experiences concerning my fear about opening up my heart. I continue to find great peace and release of old stuck energies in my sessions, and I learn more and more about how to care for myself.” ~ M. Clare
“I met Shelly in November of 2013 at a Jin Shin Jyutsu training seminar that we both attended in Maryland. I was immediately drawn to Shelly’s exuberance and joy of life, as well as her grounded day-to-day living in reality. Shelly processes information with her mind, but she listens with her heart. She embodies the gift of kindness. In a day and age when everything seems to move quickly, and brings distraction, when Shelly is sitting with you, she is completely with you. Hearing you, listening with her heart, reaching out with her hands in an offering to help others, her compassion filters down through her heart, and through her hands, in her offering of the healing art Jin Shin Jyutsu.” ~ Donna F., Jin Shin Jyutsu Practitioner
“I am fairly new to Jin Shin and so I did not know what to expect. Shelly put my mind at ease and created a comfortable environment. Her space is inviting and relaxing. After my first session, I felt good but the next day is when I felt real results. Shelly is professional and seems to know right away what your mind and body needs. She’s amazing!” ~ Laura
“I had never heard of Jin Shin Jyutsu or energy healing before I met Shelly. I was definitely skeptical, but decided to give it a try. I wasn’t looking to heal anything specific. But even so, the morning after a session I had a general feeling of content and wellness… so much so, that I even forgot my wake-up cigarette. Shelly provides a professional service in a professional manner. She’ll answer any questions you might have and has respect for healthy skepticism. If your dealing with an issue, whether it be physical, emotional, mental or otherwise, or even if you have no specific issues at all, I’d highly recommend giving Shelly’s services a try.” ~ Keith K.
“I am certified in many different healing modalities and have been a practitioner of these for almost 30 years. Shelly has a knack at having no agendas for me or herself. She creates a quiet stillness within herself and listens to the pulses of my body such that I find myself dropping into a suspended awareness of utter peace. I find a depth of mental calmness that I take into my daily life and this mental calmness becomes more important as I age. Also, Shelly’s daily meditation allows her to be present in ways I have not found with other energy workers.” ~ Karen S.
“Jin Shin Jyutsu has benefited my life. Prior to beginning treatment with Shelly, I was having weekly massage therapy appointments, only to have upper back and neck pain return after a few days. I had also undergone several rounds of treatment with chiropractic practitioners prior to Shelly’s treatments, all with no success. And I participated in NAET to help reduce allergies and inflammation to decrease my back and neck pain, still no success.” ~ Anonymous
The actual treatment of Jin Shin Jyutsu is very relaxing and is able to relieve the neck and back pain that I used to experience daily. During the session, I am able to get into a deeper meditation than I have ever been able to achieve independently and my pain has been drastically reduced. I have been able to go 5-6 days before my pain symptoms return, and luckily this is close to my next appointment, in which the pain symptoms are “cleared” and are gone for the next 5-6 days. Also, I have had three particularly meaningful and deep meditation experiences during the treatment. My personal goal through Jin Shin Jyutsu is to be able to meditate deeply and independent of the treatment in order to reduce my pain. ~ Anonymous
Most people typically only need 12-15 sessions, but based on the severity of my pain and symptoms I anticipate it will take longer for me to resolve them. This has been the most hopeful I have been in trying to find natural relief of my pain without prescriptions. My functioning has improved dramatically since beginning treatment; I have been able to work full-time, after only working part-time for the previous 3 years from pain. ~ Anonymous
I drive 45 minutes to see Shelly and am grateful that she is close enough that I can make it in to see her. Not only is she talented with Jin Shin Jyutsu, she is a naturally caring and trusting person. She is careful to speak only when necessary and allows me to have the space to be silent when needed and meditate as I need. She is not pushy nor confrontational, which makes it easy to attend sessions. Shelly also doesn’t do weird things like talk to spirits or use angels to heal. She simply uses the bodies natural pressure points to relieve symptoms in different parts of the body, without actually applying pressure or giving a massage. If I hadn’t experienced symptom reduction in the beginning, I probably would never have believed that something so simple would relieve the pain that I have lived with for the past 5-6 years.” ~ Cash
