Myofascial Release

What is Advanced Bodywork?

Massage at its most basic level flushes toxins, creates healthy blood flow and calms the nervous system. Even a light Swedish is relaxing and very beneficial.

Most likely massage was the very first form of therapy. Baby hits its head, mommy intuitively rubs the baby’s head. Baby feels better. Baby stops crying.

But Advanced means you’re going to be moved. Your mind will be moved with your soft tissue. You will be unlocked, or at least begin to be using cutting edge therapies with top notch therapists. Advanced Bodywork is an added component to your routine, or to recover from injury. 

What Makes Advanced Therapists Different?

Advanced Therapists are dedicated to their craft for a lifetime – advancing their knowledge and skills. An advanced therapist has extensive knowledge on all the finer points of massage through continued education and training, but mostly through practice.

They understand not only cerebrally, but on a vibrational level, the components of: pulse, breath, touch, flow, movement, stillness, compression and balance.

Over time working with your Advanced Bodywork therapist, we will learn your body and you will continue to improve your ability to receive the therapy. Each session will build upon the last. We can help you unlock your strengths and strengthen your weaknesses. We will continually tailor your therapy based in real time. No two sessions will ever be the same. Thus, creating in no time, the optimum you.

CHAD JASMINE, LMT, NCTMB

OWNER & THERAPIST

MA#33394

Chad is the proud owner/operator (and of course one of the great therapists) of Jasmine Advanced Bodywork and Healing Center. With more than 20 years of experience his expertise is extensive in virtually all modalities of massage. Chad worked six years with the Jacksonville Jaguars as their massage therapist and continues to work with professional athletes such as pro golfers, tennis players and endurance athletes.

Chad is a master at balancing the body and helping influence the posture necessary to oppose gravity properly, but his true passion is just simply helping people heal themselves. His vast areas of training include Visceral Work, Neuromuscular, Myofascial Release, Structural, Craniosacral and Energy work, just to name a few.

His many years of experience have lead to his own innovations, such as “Myo-Spiral Therapy” (facial lengthening and unwinding) as well as his latest invention “Passive Limb Suspension”  – where joints, such as shoulder, elbow and wrist or hip, knee and ankle are suspended via resistance bands. In this suspended state total passivity can be achieved thus making the massage or manual therapy incredibly effective in a brand new way.

Chad is also a Qi Gong instructor and teaches a sunrise class every Monday, Wednesday and Friday on the beach just a short walk from his practice in beautiful Jacksonville Beach, Florida. 

Additionally, Chad is a breathing coach. Teaching many techniques that ultimately stimulate the body’s own healing process. Many of Chad’s clients add a half hour of breathing to a massage session, or they can simply book a breathing session as a stand alone service.

 

SHEILA JASMINE, LMT, CPMT

OWNER & THERAPIST

MA#53664

Sheila began her own self-healing journey long before she became a Licensed Massage Therapist in 2008. It began while living overseas in Australia, where she was injured in an auto accident and found herself living in chronic pain. Her search for relief led her to massage therapy, Ashtanga yoga, and Buddhist teachings.

After spending a few years being inspired by many teachers and healers, she decided to return to the states and begin her career in massage therapy. Now, after many years of experience in the field, her expertise is vast and spans a wide range of modalities in the healing arts.

Myofascial Release, Visceral Bodywork, Pelvic Pain, Lymphatic and Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Scar Management, Soothing PTSD, Food Healing, and Pediatric Massage are just a few of the treatments she offers. Sheila is certified in Lymphatic and Manual Lymphatic Drainage.

With a history in dance, movement, and yoga, as well as being a Qi Gong instructor, Sheila has recently started holding meditation and movement classes at the center and on the beach.

Along with her advanced massage techniques, she also helps people heal from the inside out as a Certified Food Healer (through the Supreme Science Foundation).

When asked to explain her work Sheila says, “Everyone’s body is unique and therefore I’m always learning. I try to create a safe place for my clients to connect to their innate healing frequencies. I’m a facilitator who works deeply with a light touch.  My aim is simply for my clients to leave feeling lighter.”

 

MARK MCCUDDEN, LMT

THERAPIST & HERBALIS

MA#55892

Mark has always had a deep passion for helping others and being of service. Mark considers himself a structural, functional and energetic therapist strongly influenced by Neuromuscular Massage and Myofascial Release Therapy. 

He graduated college with an associates degree in massage therapy in 2009. While in school, he had the pleasure of learning Reiki and other forms of energy healing from incredible healers. 

Since then, he continued studying Paul St. John’s neuromuscular therapy technique along with the John Barnes technique for Myofascial release. These forms of bodywork have greatly influenced Mark as a therapist. 

Studying with Ekardt Tolle  in the school of awakening, helped Mark become truly present and focused, the best attitude to help someone facilitate wellness. Studying visceral release has enhanced his myofascial understanding and effectiveness of treatments. Shannon Goossen was also a great influence on Mark — this great teacher teaches phasic/tonic muscle relations, walking release and microcurrent.

Moving to a more intensely active lifestyle, of hiking, biking and snowboarding, Amy found herself more intrigued with the natural structure of the human body, as well as her relief from injuries with soft tissue manipulation. Having a strong foundation to work with and help others, she returned home to study at the Florida School of Advanced Bodywork. Bodywork, along with a special interest in structural integration and trigger point therapy, has easily become another one of her passions with the intent to help as many people as possible to live a pain-free life.

I have found Chad’s unique method of Structural Bodywork to be a tremendous asset to both me as an Ironman Triathlete and to our players. His advanced massage skills and his genuine compassion for his clients make him one of the best massage therapists with whom I’ve had the pleasure to work.

Mike Ryan

Jacksonville Jaguars Head Athletic Trainer

Over the past ten years I’ve witnessed what the music of Chad Jasmine does for students and patients I’ve taught and treated, both in my clinical massage therapy schools and practices. His music not only assists in the unwinding of the mind and body but it causes it. All music found on Chad’s Therapy Division label is superb, a must have for therapists and anyone who just loves great music.

Kyle C. Wright, LMBT

Founder of North Carolina School of Advanced Bodywork and Massage

I first learned of Chad when he was recommended to my wife by a good friend. When my wife came home raving about another man, I did what any other male would do, I went to see Chad too. At the time, I was struggling with hip pain and weakness that made me think that my joint was failing (not an uncommon ailment for a tennis player). Chad figured out that there was a soft tissue injury along with muscle imbalance that was exacerbating the issue. He treated the symptoms and pain, but more importantly the imbalance which was at the root of it all.

Chad has great experience in athletics and, as a basketball fan; I love his stories about the great Coach John Wooden, among others. I highly recommend you utilize Chad’s services whether you are trying to achieve great things in athletics or just trying to have a little less pain during the course of your day. He’s the best!

Sheila just wonderful.... knowledgeable and sensitive. Beautiful space...husband and wife have created a pretty quiet center in a busy area. I was able to walk-in but I recommend scheduling ahead. More expensive than your average 90 min but well worth the expenditure.

I started see Shelia about 3 months ago. I had a surgery procedure done and was in a lot of pain. Shelia took the time out to explain what was happening to my body post op and really worked those areas good for me! After 2 sessions I felt like a new person. I trusted Shelia so much I bought back my 8 year old who is a competitive gymnast and is always complaining about body aches. My 8 year old has never felt better! Not mention the facility is welcoming and beautiful. I’m so grateful to have found Shelia and the whole team! Would highly recommend!

If you're looking for someone who will truly help you with your pain, look no further! After having my son in early 2020, I'd been having ongoing back and neck pain that seemed to always be present, but some days it was almost unbearable. On a recent trip to Jax Beach to visit family, my husband decided to surprise me with a massage hoping it would help me at least enjoy the weekend after my body hurting from the long drive. He'd done some research and settled on this place. I'm glad he recognized I needed someone who understood what was going on in my body and could help work on the different areas bothering me. Shelia was the absolute best person for this job. I went in with limited expectations, as I'd worked in sports medicine for years and had experienced many massages from the professionals I had worked with. It's always hard to compare when the people I'd worked with were so amazing. But Shelia exceeded my expectations. I told her that she gave me one of the best massages I'd ever had and it was 100% true. I could tell she was paying attention to my body. There were problem areas I've had for years that I hadn't even mentioned to her, that I noticed she spent extra time on, making sure to work through every stubborn knot. I am also someone who needs a more gentle massage. I have spent lots of money on spa massages to have the therapist be too rough all over and end up bruising me around my sensitive rib cage area. Shelia knew exactly what I needed. She was incredibly gentle but also applied pressure in the spots she knew needed it. I walked out of there feeling like my body was finally feeling back to normal. I only have two regrets- I should have booked a longer session and that I wish I lived in Jax Beach so I could see her regularly. But I promise, I will be back. ?

I cannot say enough about how AMAZING Chad is. He's literally a magician! He's helped me several times over the years with issues where I wasn't able to get any relief anywhere else. Dealt with a pulled/strained groin muscle for 9 months super deep in the hip back in 2017. Tried acupuncture, physical therapy, cortisone shots, etc. Nothing helped and I was in constant and significant pain. Spent an hour & a half with Chad and literally had tears in my eyes after the session because of how much relief I got. It felt like I woke up from an extremely long bad dream. A couple more sessions and it was like it never happened. Most recently I got a buldging disc at c4-c5 pinching a nerve in my neck. EXCRUCIATING pain constantly for the past two months. Just spent an hour with Chad working on my neck and got immediate and significant relief. Not 100% yet but headed that way soon. Chad is very knowledgeable in terms of muscular/skeletal structure and knows how the pieces fit together. My experience is that he takes a very "outside-in" approach meaning he works through the outer muscles before getting into deep tissue. Essentially allowing muscle to move bone, offer healing through fresh blood and steady pressure, rather than forcing bone to move without first asking the muscles for permission to enter. Can't say enough good things. Thanks Chad! You the nan!

Sheila and Chad are the dynamic duo of massage and healing! They are both genuinely interested in their patient's well being and have a sense of connectedness that is unparalleled. I've seen Chad several times and his deep tissue technique for releasing tight muscles and promoting blood flow is incredible without being painful. I see Sheila most often and her ability to get in tune with whatever I need that day is nothing short of amazing. Each week I walk out of their well appointed and comfortable studio like a new man . . . and looking forward to my next visit!
