Jacqueline Mae Palaniuk is a Licensed Massage Therapist specializing in Deep Tissue, Hawaiian style Lomi Lomi, Hot Stones, Cupping and more.  

Jacqueline considers herself not a healer, but a conduit for healing to take place, and feels that massage is not just a career, but a calling that found her. In helping others heal, she’s found healing for herself as well.

Jacqueline takes pride in her ability to be fully present with each client as well as being attuned to their individual needs.  She truly believes in the power of massage; it assimilates wholeness of well-being. Massage is natural medicine for not just the body, but the mind and spirit; a reunion of sorts.

A cleansing, a clearing, a reset.
