Jessee Thomas


Reiki Instructor, CranioSacral and Massage Therapy

Jesse is a North Carolina native who started his career in the healing arts with Reiki. At the age of twenty one he received a miraculous healing experience from a single Reiki session that sparked a desire in him to help others in their own healing, wholistic, spiritual journeys. After that initial Reiki session he was inspired to learn all three degrees in the traditional Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoho system, including years of in-depth training in all three levels of the Reiki Master/Teacher certification, became nationally certified in massage and bodywork therapy at the North Carolina School of Natural Healing, and is currently in an in depth Craniosacral program.  Jesse has spent most of his career working in high end Spas, healing centers, and his personal practice, he believes that deep relaxation is the first step to healing, and is what most people really need these days. But that being said his massage is not a typical Spa fluff and buff his work is deep, therapeutic, and methodical incorporating all of the modalities and techniques learned from decades of experience.
