Massage for the mind,
Therapy for the body.


Janet will never forget the way she felt after her very first massage. A combination of deep relaxation in her body and a serene and calm state of mind. She began to receive weekly massages after that experience which led her to train to become a therapist. Her initial education was at the one of a kind Cayce/Reilly School of Massotherapy in Virginia Beach, Va. After completing the 500 hour program she moved to Arizona and has yet to stop learning.

Janet worked for local spas, a medical clinic and on site providing chair massage at many Valley corporations before setting up her private practice in 2002. This gave her the opportunity to bring the healing powers of massage to people of all ages, from age 9 to 99, with an equally wide range of health conditions. Many of those conditions presented challenges which set Janet on a path of pursuing new methods to treat the body and the mind.

Early on she was attracted to Eastern modalities and took classes in Jin Shin Do body/mind acupressure, Zen Spa Shiatsu, Thai Foot Reflexology, Ayurvedic massage and Abhyanga. In 2002 she traveled to San Diego to study Chinese Medical Massage (Tuina) at the Taoist Sanctuary with master teacher Bill Helm. In 2006 she traveled to Beijing, China for further study in Tuina.

As her practice grew she continued to search for effective and reliable methods of treating the body, taking workshops on stretching therapy to help with Repetitive Use Injuries (RUIT), and Structural Integration Therapy classes that work on stretching and reorganizing fascia, as well as Lomi Lomi, a Hawaiian based therapy which primarily utilizes the forearms.

During a workshop on Resistance and Release Therapy, taught by master Trager teacher Deane Juhan, she learned the importance of the role of the Central Nervous System in bodywork. When a student in the class asked Deane how to address deep muscle tissue problems, Deane replied, “We will be reaching all the way to the bone with this work, but we will be doing it with a feather.”

In 2022 she discovered new methods that are astoundingly effective and fast acting, with Neural Reset Therapy (NRT) and Quantum Alignment Technique (QAT) by Lawrence Woods and Spontaneous Muscle Release Therapy (SMRT) by Dawn Lewis. These new techniques have drastically changed the scope of her practice and provided many clients with much needed pain relief and restoration of function and mobility in chronic areas as well as creating a mental state of calm.

She currently has completed over 2000 hours of additional training.

After going completely plant based in 2015 to ease the ravages of her Crohn’s disease she found that many ills and pains can be reduced or removed through the power of healing foods. During the pandemic she completed both the Plant Based Nutrition and Nutrition and Healthy Living certificates from Cornell University in 2021, giving credo to her belief that good health starts from the inside out.

She resides in Phoenix with her husband, the talented juggler and entertainer James Reid, and their two rescue kitties. She enjoys hiking, kayaking, going to the movies, a good mystery book, and live music with her husband. She takes Tai Chi classes and restorative yoga classes when she can catch one.


Each massage is custom tailored to meet your unique needs as each bodywork session is a physical dialogue between Janet’s hands and your body. A session consists of a blend of massage techniques drawing upon extensive training and experience and may include Neural Reset Therapy (NRT), Spontaneous Muscle Release Therapy (SMRT), Quantum Alignment Technique (QAT), Swedish, Tuina, Thai Foot Reflexology, Structural Integration, Reflexology, Lomi- Lomi, Abhyanga, Acupressure, Craniosacral, Manual Lymph Drainage, Scar Massage, Stretching, and more.

NRT is a practical, rapid and reliable way to apply the laws of Reciprocal Inhibition and of Symmetry into a form of manual therapy. Proper application of NRT resets the nervous system to release a muscle from excessive tension. The therapist briefly stimulates the receptors embedded in the selected muscle by asking for the client to hold a position, or for a movement in a particular direction. Or the therapist taps on a muscle in such a way as to cause receptors to send a special message to the spinal cord. That new message goes through the spinal integrating center which then resets the nervous system so the muscles being targeted is optimized neurologically. With the reset, the muscular pain and tightness disappear within seconds. You will be participating in your own healing process by activating specific muscles throughout the session. Just a little work for great results! With the reset, the knots, pain, and tightness are gone. Joint mobility and posture can be improved. You have to experience this revolutionary therapy to believe it.
How long do the effects of NRT last?
NRT is so quick and effective that people often ask how long will this last. At a minimum, the long-term effects of NRT in lengthening and relaxing muscles to bring them out of pain is at least equal to any traditional work such as neuromuscular/medical massage/ deep tissue/myofascial release/activated isolated stretching type of therapies. Therapists and clients report that the results of NRT have often been observed to last longer and to have more profound effects. Sometimes chronic conditions that never seem to make any progress start to clear. NRT resets the muscles to a more optimal state, but a client's lifestyle choices can effect how long this lasts. The more they bring to balance, or make healthier choices in their lives, the longer the reset will keep impacting their wellness.

Spontaneous Muscle Release Technique is a medical massage modality that uses passive contraction of muscles, ligaments and tendons to influence the body’s proprioceptors toward a more comfortable, balanced state. These techniques often yield results more quickly and with less pain than traditional deep tissue massage techniques.
The idea of passive contraction of muscles grew into what SMRT is today, a system that looks at muscles, bones, connective tissues, and uses the concept of positional release to balance skeletal misalignments, release muscle tension patterns, and unlock fascial tie-ups.
Interrupts pain signals in the body, painlessly resolves trigger points, has an incredibly calming effect on the nervous system. By working with all tissues in any given area SMRT easily and quickly allows the tissues to balance and joints to realign effortlessly reestablishing correct posture.

QAT is a method of removing the charge of trauma from tissues and connecting tissues to the sensory-motor cortex of the brain. We will be using quantum field-infused devices to do those actions. Oscillating plasma fields are used to imprint quantum field information into a piece of copper enclosed in a vinyl jacket. There is another process to permanently quantum entangle the QAT devises. This all sounds wildly esoteric, but it is not. There are very dramatic real-time changes when these devises are used appropriately.
QAT can also be used to balance the acupuncture meridians. Twenty-four acupuncture points are used to test and balance the 12 meridians. This balancing can serve to improve organ function as well as restore muscle function.
There is an emotional process possible with QAT. Clients report that it can be a profound experience. It is conducted without any talking.

This modality combined with NRT or SMRT is a great combination for your healing!
