Jeremy Strickland, CMT
I've always loved my work. I've practiced hands-on therapies professionally for sixteen years. During this time I've worked in several settings including luxury day-spas, a chiropractic office, a sports massage clinic, and in private practice. As pro-bono work I provided Jin Shin Jyutsu treatments at the Glide Community Health Clinic in San Francisco, serving individuals with a variety of health concerns. I have also participated in a touch program for infants at the UCSF Children's Hospital.
After graduating from the Austin School of Massage Therapy in early 1994 and entering the field of massage, I began exploring the effectiveness of different types of bodywork. A colleague gave me craniosacral therapy sessions that significantly impacted my perception of the body. With intrigue and curiosity I enrolled with the Upledger Institute and completed Craniosacral Therapy levels 1 and 2, in 1996 and 1997.
Experience with this work sparked my interest in theories based in energy, such as acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine. In 1998 I found Jin Shin Jyutsu. I took my first class in 1999 and obtained my practitioner certificate in 2001. In 2004 I became qualified to teach from the "Introducing Jin Shin Jyutsu" self-care books.
Today I maintain a full-time private practice in San Francisco and teach JSJ self-care classes. I also co-organize the San Francisco JSJ 5-Day Basic Seminars and Special Topics classes.
Several years ago I was drawn back to another art of harmonizing relationships that I had enjoyed as a child, music. In my spare time I enjoy studying western music theory and playing the piano and trumpet.
