All her life, Mandy has sought to make the world a better place, and her passion is in the heart-to-heart support of people to help them become the best and happiest versions of themselves. Mandy came to Olympia in 1998 to attend The Evergreen State College, where she graduated with a degree in political economy, environmental science, and art, while also working with Latin American solidarity campaigns and teaching as a volunteer in the state prison at Shelton. She has been highly influenced by the Anti-Oppression curriculum of Dr. Leticia Nieto, which places our personal, emotional struggles in the context of our place and privileges in society. Her commitment to social and ecological justice is a huge motivation to help individuals clear physical and emotional obstacles that prevent us from living as we know we’d like to live.
She discovered her love of healing arts while searching for a deeper level of that transformation. She graduated from Brenneke School of Massage in 2008, and soon after enrolled in the most in-depth cranio-sacral therapy program available in Washington, taught by acupuncturist Ursula Popp. The skills of cranial work combine beautifully with the energetic healing techniques of her mentor, Jennifer Nevy, including Body Code, Emotion Code, Natural Force Healing, Reiki, and Hands of Light. Both of these programs include a foundation of Five Elements Chinese Medicine, which seeks to understand the body and psyche as a natural system that heals through balancing itself. She also practices Polarity Therapy and Zero Balancing, along with continuing her education of Aromatherapy, Sound Healing, and Herbal Medicine. (She loves to study and she loves to share what she learns.) She uses Applied Kinesiology both as a tool in these healing techniques, and to discover which techniques are most helpful for each custom session. Everything she offers can be used for the treatment of acute or chronic injuries, complementary care, and relaxation, or personal growth, prevention, and wellness.
Mandy provides coverage for PIP claims (auto accidents), but otherwise does not accept insurance claims.

In addition to being one of our experienced float guides who will greet you at the reception desk here at The Soul Space, Dan is also a counselor and energy worker with Intuitive Being. Dan and Intuitive Being offer a range of wellness and counseling services designed to free you of your emotional baggage and physical challenges and return you to your pure self. He uses applied kinesiology as a primary diagnostic tool to get to an incredibly detailed view of the deep roots of clients’ imbalances, whether they be at the level of the conscious mind, subconscious mind or buried deeper somewhere in the energy body. He employs a variety of healing modalities to perform clearings for those imbalances, including sound healing, electromagnetic stimulation, reiki and hands-on healing, qigong, light therapy, and more.
Dan’s journey to the healing arts was an unconventional one. He spent 15 years working primarily in Fortune 500 healthcare companies, where he learned the good and the bad of the “corporate” side of healthcare. He always wanted to have a more direct role in helping people with their health and healing and set about doing just that. In 2011, he left the Fortune 500 world behind and set out on a new path to be of direct service to others. He formed Intuitive Being with his partner, Mandy Zabohne, as a collaborative practice that integrates Applied Kinesiology as a central tool for helping clients better access and manage their physical, mental and emotional selves.

Jaclyn graduated in October 2010 from the Finger Lakes School of Massage in Mt.Kisco, NY. After obtaining her New York massage license, she moved to Colorado where she became a professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA), received her National Board Certification from the NCBTMB and CO state licensure in April 2011. Jaclyn has worked in a variety of settings including a high end day spa, a resort, private chiropractic office, and a physical therapy practice. In the summer of 2016 Jaclyn’s husband received orders from the U.S Army that would relocate them to the state of Washington where she acquired a WA state license.
Her passion for helping people with their pain and injuries peaked after years of her own severe back pain and major knee surgery. Massage was an immense part of the therapy she received during her recovery; therefore, knows how great it feels to be relieved of pain and discomfort. A firm believer in the inseparable connection between body/mind, Jaclyn is an advocate of massage for relieving physical as well as emotional stress, and strongly believes in massage as a viable modality for enhancing overall health and well-being. She understands that every person has unique challenges and preferences, and prides herself in being able to hone into the needs of each individual. She continues her education and learning so she can provide the best results for what the body needs in the moment.
Jaclyn is experienced in several modalities of massage, including: Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, prenatal, neuromuscular, injury treatment, and reflexology.

Ani is originally from Pennsylvania and moved to Washington in 2003 after serving 5 years in the Marine Corps. She has been practicing massage in Washington since graduating from Ashmead College in 2006. Her massage background began with injury treatment and post surgery clinical massage, and she is well versed in symptom reversal and management for chronic pain. Soon after graduating, she began instructing Kinesiology, Massage Theory and Practice, Business and Continuing Education. Ani added to her teaching background as an ACE certified personal trainer and used her body knowledge to not only help her training clients, but also combined strengthening practices for her massage clients into an effective and harmonious package. Because of her continued fitness and bodybuilding background, treating athletes in recovery and maintenance for their sport is a huge passion for her.
Excelling in myofascial release modalities such as Cupping, Guasha, and Deep Tissue Massage, combined with her massage instructor background, Ani customizes every massage to her client based on their needs. She is certified in hot stone and warm bamboo treatments, and loves to give prenatal massage as an encouraging reprieve to our expecting mothers.

Leilani has been fortunate to work in various communities with people from all walks of life. She revels at all the opportunities that her massage career introduces into her life journey.
