Plans for Global Heart Healing and Massage first began to formulate when the Owner, Jessica Crawford LMT, was giving a massage and still in massage school at the Finger Lakes School of Massage. Having an interest in world travel and recognizing that we are all affected by the collective energy all over the planet, the name made sense. It was also the intention that someday in the future the business could come to umbrella several healing professions including but not limited to multiple Licensed Massage Therapists, a Counselor, Chiropractor and more all under one roof. In May of 2018, just as the business celebrated its 5 year Anniversary by moving to 143 Main St, it simultaneously also reached the longstanding dream of expansion into The Global Heart Healing Center. Joining in the collaboration of healing others, are Maureen Kiely LCSW-R (Counseling Services), Jason Barton DC (Chiropractic Services), Sarah Tobey LMT and Julia Post practicing Massage Therapist.
Each Therapist is professional, hard working, heart-centered and excited to come together with other like-minded healers to offer a comprehensive approach to healing. Each massage is tailored to the Client on a visit per visit basis. Only high grade, all natural, organic and unscented cream is used. Clients are invited to choose from a wide range of essential oils to add to their cream (free of charge) or if they prefer, they can keep it plain. Shea Butter is used as needed when. Other oils are available in the case of allergies or preference. In order to gather information and assess the best approach, each Client will be asked to fill out a short intake form on their first visit and take part in a verbal intake at the start of future appointments. Upon completion of this intake, the Therapist and the Client will decide the best approach for the session whether the Client is looking specifically for an overall relaxing massage, needs specific work, or a combination of the two. Each Client’s comfort and confidentiality is of utmost importance.
In addition to three lovely treatment rooms, the Healing Center also offers a large sitting/activity room which is a waiting room during business hours, but that also encourages leisure/educational/commerce activities such as meditation, reading, board games, workshops, community building, guest speakers, pop-up shops, and rental for massage parties or small gatherings such as jewelry parties (and the like), bridal showers, etc.
Conveniently located in Downtown Cortland, the new space is serviced directly in the front by the local public transportation of the Cortland Transit bus line, is located directly next to a public parking lot, surrounded by ample street parking and is ADA accessible both inside and out. Despite being in the Downtown area the space is surprisingly tranquil and calm inside offering both convenience and peace.
As of January 1, 2019, Global Heart Healing and Massage is thrilled at the opportunity to join in partnership with the Well-Being Healing Center at 317 N Aurora St. in Ithaca NY. It is believed that between the shared partnership of the two centers, The Global Heart Healing Center and the Well-Being Healing Center, the cross pollination of talented healers and communities can only blossom into the most amazing of healing opportunities for both cities and the surrounding areas.
We invite you to see each of the spaces and meet with any or all Therapists that can assist you and or a loved one with the journey to healing. We work from an abundance-based perspective and are happy to refer you to whatever Therapist(s) and or Professional that can most assist your needs.
