Jesse Warren, LMT

Jesse has been working as a Licensed Massage Therapist for over three years. He studied massage at Douglas Aveda Institute after realizing he wanted to help people to heal themselves.

Jesse is a talented energy worker and has developed his own technique he calls The Experience. In The Experience, Jesse combines bodywork and energy work. Using a variety of energy techniques including chanting, crystals, sound, Reiki, and other methods as Jesse sees fit, you will have a session that works on every level of your being from the physical to the energetic. Consider trying this groundbreaking session today!

In Jesse’s own words, “Ever since I was young, I have loved the idea of being a healer. Someone that people can come to when they are hurting, sad, or overburdened with life, who will make them feel better. Becoming a massage therapist was the first step toward this dream, and it has been my pleasure to bring healing and light to many clients around the Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor area. I am happy to be partnering with Health Harmonized to bring my special brand of healing massage therapy and energy work to those in need.”
