ABOUT THE THERAPIST:
Jody Cross
Licensed Massage Therapist since 2003
Intuitive & Professional Bodywork Practice





   
    














  


 

     Hello!  My name is Jody, and I am an LMT (Licensed Massage Therapist).  I have been trained and licensed in the state of Texas.  I have been in business in San Marcos, TX since 2009, and I have been practicing my art of massage since 2004.  I am a proud graduate of Texas Healing Arts Institute from Austin, TX and I continue to grow knowledge and techniques about massage therapy every year.  

    I aim to provide the client with a respectable, comfortable, and unique massage experience tailored to their body and mind.   My goal is for clients to leave my table feeling more peaceful and happy than when they arrived.  I use BIOTONE products and lotions that are non-oily and used by massage therapists nation-wide.  When a client has sensitive skin needs, I offer a hypo-allergenic lotion that is scent free.  And to each and every client, I offer aromatherapy absolutely free! 

     For each new client I do a free and thorough consultation at their first appointment, and each session afterwards we will do a check-in for changes.  During each massage session I encourage quiet from myself as well as the client so deeper relaxation can be achieved. However, if the client needs anything they may speak to the therapist at any time.

     I work intuitively and appreciate the healing properties of energy work when the client is wanting of it, and I continue to learn new techniques in CEU training as well as receiving massage often myself.  I have been described as having a down-to-earth-touch mixed with vigorous and inspiring tones.  I aim to provide a good massage experience for each client, and I practice professional boundaries to keep the client/therapist relationship confidential and respectful.  If you're looking for a therapist to bring you to tears during a session though, that is not my style.  I adopt the theory that it takes patience, good breath-work, and us working together to achieve the best results possible!
