Jessica Podhola, LMT

Hello,
My name is Jessica Podhola. I am a mother of four, a wife of one, and a kind and helpful spirit. That last part brought me into massage therapy 14 years ago. I studied at Ann Arbor Institute of Massage Therapy for a year and entered the profession right away as a new business owner. I did that for a year and decided that I liked being around other therapists and wanted to focus more on my clients than my own business. So…I became an employee again. After the birth of my second son, my place of employment in Birmingham, Michigan closed and I looked for a place closer to home. Literally, Hands On was like coming home! I have enjoyed getting to know both the people I work beside and the clients I’ve worked with. I have been very fortunate to work with the best of the best. To me that is the definition of Hands On Mind and Body Wellness Center.
In that first year of building my practice I took and passed with high marks the National Certification Test for therapeutic massage and bodyworkers. I have maintained my good standings with the AMTA as a professional member. Massage has afforded me so many opportunities for which I am grateful. I have attended home births as part of a doula training program, massaged cancer survivors and even massaged bicyclists racing for Make a Wish Foundation.
My style of massage is a blend of the techniques I have learned and experienced over the years. My training is in Myofacial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Swedish, and Sports Massage. I work very hard in my sessions to make sure that the needs of my clients are met. I look forward to working with you and getting to know you!
