Yes. I am a licensed professional by the State of North Carolina to perform these services. I received designation as a Licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist in November 2022. Jovhannah Tisdale, LMBT #20691
Massage and bodywork are both therapeutic and seek to improve clients wellbeing.
Massage involves manipulation of the muscles and soft tissues in your body. Massage helps you to relax, relieves stress, improves circulation, helps with pain, and so much more. Massage is also beneficial for improving your overall wellness and managing certain health conditions (under the care of your physician).
Bodywork is also therapeutic and also seeks to improve or maintain wellness. Massage is typically done with hands and can include different modalities or types of massage. Massage is a type of bodywork.
As a massage therapist I can not diagnose or treat diseases or illnesses. Depending on your health history your doctor may need to provide clearance for you to receive massage or bodywork services.
Yes,at my discretion. Mobile massage is an option and requires a travel fee that starts at $15 depending on your location.
That is completely up to you. You can undress (or dress) to your level of comfort.
Massage can be done over your clothes and I have had clients who prefer that. Some clients fully undress, while others leave on their undergarments.
Your bottom will not be touched unless you desire glute work (these are the muscles in your butt).
If you leave clothing on these will act as barriers that I will not cross. For example if your leave your socks on I won't touch your feet. If you leave your bra on I will work around it.
You are in complete control of how much you undress. During your massage you will always be covered so only the body part that I am working on is visible.
During a full body massage here's what I DO make contact with:
- Arms + Hands (front and back)
- Back (including the sides)
- Top of Chest (below the neck)
- Top of Hips
- Glutes (if requested)
- Thigh + Lower Leg (front and back)
NEVER at any time should will a massage include touching your breasts or genitals.
You can choose not to have any area massaged.
If you have any injuries or damage to your skin, these areas will be avoided. Depending on the issues your session may need to be rescheduled.
Absolutely! There are certain conditions and medications that aren't safe for massage. It's important to be honest about your health and medical history so that we can make the best decision regarding your treatment plan.
Other times you shouldn't get massage include:
- After taking pain medication
- Consuming drugs or alcohol
- When your doctor says not to
- If you are sick or have a fever
- Early pregnancy - prenatal massage is recommended after 12 weeks
If you don't feel good, please reschedule your appointment.
I am required by the North Carolina Board of Massage and Bodywork to wear a mask while in session. You do not need to wear one, unless you feel more comfortable that way.
We all have an energy body around our physical body. Everything is energy!! Our bodies are constantly interacting with the energy that is all around us, even if we aren’t aware. Energy is always flowing, but sometimes the energy can create blocks causing things to become slow, stuck, and stagnant!
Energy healing helps to balance and shift energy to clear blockages, among other things. There are a wide variety of energy healing techniques including Reiki, Angelic Healing, Aromatherapy, EFT Tapping, and Crystal healing to name a few. .
Some benefits are:
Open your heart and mind to love and healthy relationships
Healing from emotional upsets
Calming and relaxing.
Spend some time in a peaceful state and reduce your stress levels.
The perfect way to indulge in self care.
Supports you physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
This is a great question! Because everything is energy, I am able to connect with you energetically and direct healing energies to you.
The same way you take care of your physical body by washing your face, brushing your teeth, and showering our energetic body needs hygiene too. This includes practices like prayer, grounding, chakra balancing, working with crystals, and other practices to ensure that your energetic body is functioning at optimal levels.
Typically these sessions are done with you completely clothed. I recommend you wear something comfortable. There may be times when I work with crystals or essential oils. If that is the case then you may need to dress differently for your session.
If you have a massage session that includes energy healing this will be performed during your session while you are covered under the blanket, unless we are doing specific work.
I'm an intuitive Tarot reader, meaning I read based on what I see and feel energetically/spiritually in the cards. I can give a reading on just about anything. Most people come to me for readings around healing, personal growth, love/relationships, career, and goals.
I prefer to focus readings in a way that is healing and supportive.
I do not do predictive readings.
I will not divine your soulmate or tell you what they look like, nor will I tell you if someone will leave another person for you.
I cannot tell you the winning lottery numbers (because if I had them I would use them myself - duh).
I also do not do readings that peek into other people lives (third party readings).
I read using a variety of cards. I include Tarot and Oracle cards in my readings. For people who are new to readings, I might go with an Angel Card deck.
I don't give refunds on readings or the other services I offer. All sales are final when you book your reading. I stand behind the quality and energy of my Spiritual work.
No shows and missed appointments are non-refundable, but I'm always happy to reschedule these sessions.
Time, energy, and love goes into preparing for each session.
You must cancel at least 24 hours before your scheduled session, otherwise you will be charged for the session.
I believe the Tarot can help you navigate your life and create your future, but ultimately you are responsible for your actions and decisions. Tarot can show potential futures, but please remember that choice and free will, by yourself or others, can change your outcome.
If it violates another person’s privacy or free will, that goes against my ethics and I will not conduct the reading. You'll need to find another question or subject for the reading.
No you need to be 18 years or older.
However if your parent is involved or requesting the reading that is a different matter. I do read for parents who are trying to better connect with or understand their children. That would fall under the love/relationship reading category.
Like life, not all readings are going to turn out how you expect.
If you don't like the cards or their meaning, know that you have the power within you to shift your destiny. These readings are meant to empower you, not to upset you. It is best to approach any tarot reading with an open mind and free of expectations. It also helps to allow time to unfold and to revisit your reading for continued guidance, as things may make more sense later on.
Refunds are not given because you don't like your results.

The Spiritual Love Community is a sacred virtual space where we can gather. I used to have a FB group that I enjoyed, but started not to love the platform. This gives me the opportunity to still hold space, but in a way that feels aligned for me.
This community allowed me to bring all of my previous groups together under one roof.
Being a member of the Spiritual Love Community is free. There is no charge to join.
In the future I may decide to add on a mastermind option for people desiring support. This would be at an added cost, but you can stay in the community for free.
Schedule a Consultation
Book a 20 min consultation call to learn how the Spiritual Love Sanctuary can support your needs. This is not a free session, but a chance for you to learn how I can support you and to determine best course of treatment for your specific needs.
