Massage for Wellness

A little bit about me

Jacqueline Algaier, Certified Oncology Massage Therapist,  Licensed and insured in PA

Ohio School of Massotherapy 1996

Training in oncology, manual lymph drainage, scar tissue mobilization, geriatrics, orthobionomy, energy healing, pregnancy massage and working with those who have mental illness and or addictions. 

Private Practice since 1987

Worked for Family Hospice providing massage to patients in care center and in their homes 2 1/2 years

Worked at Western Psych in Pittsburgh PA for 2 1/2 years as massage therapist in a pilot program

Worked at UPMC hospitals in palliative care under a limited grant

Previous to my massage training, I worked as a chemical dependency counselor.  I enjoyed my listening work, but appreciated that talk therapy could only lead a person so far.  The body, however, can heal by addressing issues on a cellular level.   Our bodies remember trauma, unconscious issues and hold onto energy that prevent us from moving forward in our lives in a vibrant and energetic way.

My certification in Oncology Massage has been a three year process of intensive classroom, hospital training and supervision.

I have experienced the joy of working with clients during all phases of treatment, along with their families. 

I available to provide massage services and education to caregivers, those often silent and important partners who need as much care as the client who is in treatment.

 I look forward to working with you and those whom you love.
