At the age of 18 Jackie began her journey into discovering Wholistic Healing modalities. 2005 saw the start of her education in Massage Therapy, which quickly affirmed The Golden Lady's passion for working with others to help them heal.
In 2006 Jackie became a complete professional Reflexologist specializing in Foot, Hand, Ear and Facial Reflexology. 2006 also saw the beginning of Jackie’s Reiki Training. Since her original training in manual therapies, Jackie has begun to expand and transform her healing work into more energetic modalities such as Reiki, Colour Sound Therapy and Chakra Balancing. Jackie’s Reiki training was undertaken with numerous teachers to provide more insight and a deeper understanding of Eastern and Western Reiki Styles. In 2007 Jackie had the honour of receiving Reiki Level 4 with Hyakuten Inamoto Sensei. Colour Sound Therapy training was taken in 2007 through Colour Energetics School of Vibrational Studies. This program was a turning point for Jackie with her career, and ultimately is what shaped Golden Lady Wholistics, affirming that energetic modalities is where her heart truly rests.
Hot Stone Massage was taken through Stone Therapy School in the fall of 2008. For The Golden Lady, Hot Stone Massage is a perfect bridge between physical modalities and energetic ones. The supportive and healing energies of the stones so wonderfully combines with the physical body and art of Massage Therapy. After falling in love with the stones used in Hot Stone Massage, Jackie decided to take a Facial with Hot Stones course through Stone Therapy School in 2011. She offered Organic Vegan Facials with Hot Stones for a few years but found demand was not high enough to continue offering this particular service.
Jackie updated her Massage Therapy training to a 2200 hour program in 2014 with Academy of Reflexology and Massage. 2017 saw the addition of Therapeutic Cupping to The Golden Lady's practice. She is certified through the Whole Health Institute of Cupping & Complementary Medicine.
Having grown to absolutely love and adore Hot Stone Massage, in 2018 The Golden Lady decided to deepen her practice and became certified in Advanced Therapeutic Massage with Hot and Cold Stones. Also with Stone Therapy School.
As an ever evolving individual, The Golden Lady is constantly honing her skills and abilities as well as deepening her connection with source to provide her clients with the most authentic sessions possible. Much time has also been dedicated to creating courses and workshops to further her clients abilities to self heal and to achieve self realizations.
The Golden Lady has begun to deepen her exploration of Energy Work through Kahi Loa, a form of Traditional Hawaiian Shamanism. In the spring of 2019 Jackie began her training with Wayne Kealohi Powell of Shamanic Bodywork.
