Jamie Ahlman of Serenstara Healing Arts knew since her high school years that one day she would pursue massage school and a path in the healing arts. After decades as a teacher and then as an elementary school librarian in Hawai'i, the time had come for her second calling in life. After training on Maui as a kids' yoga instructor and then as an Usui/Tibetan Reiki Master over the course of a few years, she was drawn from Oahu to call Maui her home. While working as an elementary school librarian on Maui, little hints kept nudging her to finally pursue massage school, so she decided to attend one on Maui. Then life changed... In 2015 synchronicities guided her to move to the Pacific Northwest to attend Port Townsend School of Massage to complete her Washington state massage licensing program, to attend the Northwest School of Animal Massage on Vashon Island to become a small animal massage/acupressure practitioner, and to Bastyr University to pursue craniosacral therapy certification. She is currently accepting new clients at Willowtree Health and Wellness Market on Bainbridge Island and in April 2017 will be opening up a new healing space with Facilitated Wholeness on Finch Place in Winslow. Jamie also offers mobile animal massage/acupressure sessions at your home. Go to serenstara.setmore.com to book a "human" and/or animal healing session. :)
