Jaime Chandra Kozlowski
NC Licensed Massage & Bodywork Therapist #7777
My path to becoming a healing arts practitioner started with receiving the work and its many benefits. Starting in my middle teens, I suffered from frequent migranes and other health issues. After working with a student neuromuscular therapist in my early 20's, I found relief from the migranes and more ease in my body. Around the same time, I found yoga and began a dedicated practice. As my practice deepened, my life started to shift until I felt the need to transition out of my career as Information Technology Specialist into a more embodied field.
In October 2006, I attended my first yoga teacher training at Yogaville, Satchidanada Ashram in Buckingham Virginia. This immersion-style residential training, involved living a complete yogic lifestyle for a month at the Ashram. Next, I completed an in-depth 18 month Anusara Yoga teacher training in 2008. Anusara is a heart-oriented and biomechanical style of yoga that focuses on alignment and balanced action. This particular style of yoga is extremely therapeutic and I integrate the Principles of Alignment into all of my sessions.
I received my massage therapy training at the Body Therapy Institute, a COMTA (Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation) accredited school. I graduated in October 31,2007 at the beautiful Southwind Farm in Silk Hope (Siler City), NC.
Right after graduation, I began working with Dr. Tom Motyka, DO in his Osteopathic Medical Arts practice, helping chronic pain patients heal. This experience fully engaged all parts of my knowledge, skill, and intuition. I am proud to say, that I saw many of my patients feel better in a handful of sessions. Due to complications with insurance, I am no longer at this establishment. I also worked with Dr. Mindy Bradshhaw, DC at her Back Solutions Chiopractic practice, helping people come into better alignment after car accidents or as a result of years of misuse. Many of my patients learned how to stand properly for the first time and often reported back to me a dramatic shift in their condition.
As I built my private practice, it was the utmost pleasure and enthusiasm. I truly enjoy helping people find a state of deep releaxation that allows their body to heal and a newfound body awareness that starts them along a path to wellness. Each time a client has a new awareness about their body or notices something completely new, my heart smiles. I am truly blessed to be in this line of work.
The body is my passion, so I am committed to expanding my knowledge by engaging in self study and continuing education courses. Education is a priority, both for myself and my clients.
