“Our bodies are wise beyond measure. When we give ourselves permission to soften into this wisdom, healing at the deepest level is available to us.”
ince 1998, Jessica Schaffer, Nervous System Health Educator, has been guiding people towards a more authentic relationship with their bodies and their overall health. Jessica maintained a successful private practice in Portland, Oregon for 20 years where she offered support for individuals seeking personal growth and transformation. She now offers educational and wellness programs that teach people about nervous system regulation and resilience. She is passionate about introducing people to the concept of stress physiology and helping them cultivate tools to better manage and regulate their nervous system responses to stress and trauma. In addition, she runs a professional training program for practitioners who want to incorporate the Nervous System RESET approach into their clinical practices.
A graduate of The Oregon School of Massage, Jessica holds a license in Massage Therapy. In addition, she is recognized as a Master Teacher in the Usui Shiki Ryoho lineage of Reiki and has been teaching since 2002. From 2014-2017, she was a Certification Trainer and representative of TRE ® (Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises ®) where she honed her understanding of working with the body’s natural recovery response of tremor release. Ultimately, her unique methodology of working with the body and its natural recovery response lead her to the creation and curation of the Nervous System RESET approach which was launched in 2017.
With over two decades of professional experience, Jessica’s deeply intuitive skills and her ability to understand the body both anatomically and energetically, provide a powerful foundation for guiding others into a profound experience of body awareness and neural regulation.
Jessica celebrates the inherent wisdom that lies inside each of us and believes that our individual paths of healing lead us back to this wholeness. She recognizes that healing is best facilitated by creating a safe environment where each person can be witnessed and held respectfully in their authentic experience. Her work and teaching are infused with a genuine sense of empathy, compassion and integrity. And she feels honored to support others on their unique paths of personal growth and empowerment.
