Jordan F, BA, LMT
Jordan has always known she wanted to be a massage therapist, and as a small child she used to run "Jordan's Relaxation Spa" when her family would get together every Sunday. In her adult life, she took a brief interlude to gain her bachelors of History at the University of new Hampshire, where she graduated in 2017. After a soul searching adventure hiking the Appalachian Trail in 2018, she decided to finally commit to pursuing her dream of being a therapeutic massage professional. Jordan enrolled in the Massage Therapy Program at Great Bay Community College and graduated in the summer of 2020. Jordan is so excited to work at Ka lani and gain more in-depth and hands on knowledge about the various holistic healing modalities within the field of bodywork.
Jordan is a natural when it comes to massage therapy and has an impeccable re-booking rate among new and long term clientele. One of Jordan's greatest skills is her ability to focus on the more detailed aspects of the body and ensure her clients various concerns are met in a stress free and thorough way.
Since joining the Ka lani team, Jordan has completed certifications in Reiki I and II, Advanced Cupping, Prenatal and Post Partum Massage, and Aromatherapy, as well as completing her 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training.
"I've had dozens of massages before going to Ka Lani. I meant to write a good review after my first visit, but never got around to it. I would have written something like: "Jordan has great technique, ability to read the body, and capacity to apply force. What's more, the Ka Lani staff are all professional and good natured; they've dialed in how to anchor quality massage therapy." After that first visit, I was thinking it was definitely in the top 3 massage experiences I had ever had (the other two being with LMT's in Lisbon and in New Mexico). In any case, I'm glad I didn't get a chance to write up that positive review because Jordan's adaptability over time (massage-after-massage), her strength, ideas for stretching, her sense of humor, and her simply being good people (all part of the overall experience) have left me -- I'm still a little at a loss of words to describe it -- overwhelmed in the most positive of ways. I tend to be a difficult-to-convince, evidence-based thinker who had heard people describe "other-level" massages, therapy that was not incorporeal exactly, but maybe "trans-corporeal," but I had never really experienced anything like this before, where the loosening of muscles becomes an intensifier, the massage an emotional opening of the self, transcending the physical."
