NICOLE JACKSON

 

Nicole is a “Jane” of all trades when it comes to holistic healing. She began her journey as a Reiki practitioner, and later became a Reiki master in 2008. Intrigued by the world of energy healing, its effects on her own health, and the health of her clients, she wanted to share that awareness with as many people as she could, and attended massage school in 2008.

Nicole has strong hands but a soothing energy about her that makes for a great massage experience. She is highly intuitive and her hands just seem to know where to go.

In 2012 Nicole decided to become a holistic health coach because she found herself often engaging in conversation about proper nutrition and stress management with her massage clients.  “When I changed my diet...not only did I lose weight, my skin cleared up, my energy levels increased, and so did my mental clarity. I wasn’t emotionally eating, and I felt more connected and in-tune." Nicole wants to be able to help guide people towards making healthier food and lifestyle choices for their overall well-being. She believes we must take care of ourselves first and foremost! “Self-care is so important. I believe in preventative medicine. It’s as simple as eating foods that nourish and regenerate your body, getting regular massages, proper exercise, managing your stress levels, and getting enough sleep.”

Nicole is also a Pranic Healer and she has seen remarkable results in chronic pain relief while working with this modality, which of course is part of ECW's mission in helping clients.

SANDRA SPENCER

 

People often say that a female therapist is not able to give a deep massage. Sandi's style proves them wrong. Not large in stature, she packs a pretty big wollup on the massage table, and is used to working with big muscled guys!

 

Sandi was student of Jim's at NMTI in Falls Church, and was hand-picked for ECW. She brings a bright and bubbly personality to massage and to our studio. Originally from upstate New York, this theater major opted to join our profession because of her passion for martial arts, which gives her a very unique perspective and understanding of the human body. Sandi carefully watches her clients' body mechanics, looking for ways to help improve their overall wellness by suggesting easy behavior changes.

 

Besides all the hats she fills at ECW, Sandi is excellent at Swedish, Deep Tissue, Prenatal, Geriatric, and Sports techniques. She also has a particular interest in the modality of Lymphatic System Drainage, a body system that helps in immune function, and often damaged by surgeries, cancer, and chemotherapy treatments.

 

In addition to her extraordinary massage skills and her martial arts expertise, Sandi has worked as a swimming coach/instructor, making her a perfect fit for the ECWellness team. Sandi works Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and every other Saturday or Sundays.

JIM STARN


Our owner and mentor is known as "Mr. Shoulders" and has the philosophy that a therapist should work "with you, not on you." With 10 years of experience, Jim's innate ability to see and understand the connections in the body aids him to teach our therapists about various body dysfunctions and the rehabilitation of sports injuries. Chronic pain management, and more specifically variations of Fibromyalgia and Restless Leg Syndrome, are special areas of interest to Jim because he suffers from these conditions. Jim added aquatic therapy and rehab to his skills in 2011, has attended Aquatic Therapy and Rehab Institute classes in multiple innovative techniques, including the newer modality, AquaStretch™. Jim is also a certified national continuing education provider for NCBTMB, teaching his own approved continuing ed courses to groups of other therapists both locally and nationwide. Keeping the studio running smoothly keeps Jim pretty busy, and he does not see clients on the ECW schedule.
