      Beautiful Inside and Out

    Jessica is an extraordinary human being. Her openness and skill set are unrivaled and I found her to be an amazing support in and around my plant medicine ceremonies. She is masterful with acupuncture and gave me such relief from various symptoms. She is strong and sympathetic, accommodating and commanding. I learned so much from her and found her instrumental in my spiritual growth while on retreat. If you are looking into any kind of service or retreat that includes the wondrous Jessica, I wholeheartedly recommend it! Her practice is incredible. Thank you!

      Compassionate, organized, creative

    Jess did an awesome job organizing and facilitating a large psilocybin retreat in Mexico. I had done another retreat elsewhere and there was no comparison between the two. Jess helped make the experience so much more positive for me with the acupuncture (I had a badly sprained wrist just prior to attending and she helped heal it) and sound healing. I witnessed her helping another participant who was having a challenging experience and she did an amazing job of getting that participant through it. She also came along on day trips and made them so much fun as well as making sure we were all safe and our needs were met. Jess is wonderful!

      Amazing Acupuncture Full Recovery With Jessica

    I was really lucky to have found Jessica the first time I sought acupuncture. After a broken jaw and other injuries I was dealing with complicated muscle and nerve problems - Jessica's work has been the difference between severe discomfort day-to-day and living a healthy life. I was nervous like most people going into their first acupuncture session, but eager to solve my problem. The relief from the first time I knew this was the road to recovery and could not have been put more at ease by Jessica's calm, and her obvious dedication to helping her patients by listening to their experiences seemed too good to be true. A couple months changed my life and only after one-off sessions with other acupuncturists could I fully appreciate the recovery experience with Jessica. Wonderful healer and professional, even better person.

      Jess is made for this deep work

    I had the great honor of doing a sacred mushroom medicine retreat in 2019 in part organized by Jess. She was completely dedicated to each and every one of us going above and beyond to create an enormously successful 8 day retreat. Jess offered very calming and beneficial acupuncture and sound healing to all of us. To my great delight and relief she was an outstanding facilitator during our ceremonies using Psilocybin. This was the first time I used mushroom medicine and was quite nervous. Not only did I feel safe because of the way the ceremonies were conducted, but the compassion, kindness and generosity coming from Jess was an absolute gift. To add to this, once I was deep in the medicine I was shown by the spirit of mushroom that Jess is absolutely made for this type of sacred healing and is part of something extremely important. I hope I can return to a future Sol Medicine event as it was one of the most beneficial retreats of my life. Eternally grateful! Julie Dunigan

      Such a gift

    I had the honor of getting to know Jessica in Ecuador. She has a kind, nurturing energy that you can feel as soon as you meet her. I received an acupuncture session from Jessica that was very thorough. She was interested in my present needs and past issues and how she could help. I have had acupuncture many times in the past, but during her session she released something I had been holding in my shoulders for a very long time. The cupping massage she gave me was unbelievable. Without exaggeration, one of the best massages I have ever had. I also was a part of a sound healing meditation that she led which was amazing. She is an amazing woman with a very special gift and she shares that gift with so much love.

      Aligned healer

    I had the great fortune to experience Jessica's healing gifts whilst on retreat in Ecuador recently. She is a skilled and confident accupunturist and intuitive. Her kind heart and sincere desire to help make her easy to receive from. I wouldn't hesitate to reccomend her.

      Acupuncture with Jessica

    I had an acupuncture session with Jessica and I can not recommend her enough. She was incredibly professional. When I arrived I immediately felt calm in her presence. Able to really tailor the session to what I was looking for. It Felt really individualised. After the treatment I definitely felt a positive change post the session. More relaxed, like a release, Jessica really helped with a positive shift in energy's and my muscles were way less constricted immediately afterwards and the days after. Thanks so much Jessica

      Hard working, competent and kind

    I worked with Jessica in a very fast paced and challenging environment for over two months in Ecuador. There is no one else I would rather have by my side. Jessica is incredibly caring and selfless when it comes to taking care of others, and has a lot of experience across several different healing modalities. She is particularly competent in Accupuncture and Tuning Forks, and her skills in these areas really influenced and helped me during our time working together. To anyone that is thinking of working with Jessica and her team, you will not regret a single second.

      Earth Angel

    Jessica is an incredible healer. She supported me through what I call the “ dark night of the soul. “ I was extremely anxious, panicked and depressed with insomnia. I arrived at a Aya retreat in a bad way. Jessica took me under her wings. She was supportive non judgemental and incredibly understanding. I had acupuncture and cupping with her which helped me with my anxiety about the pending ceremonies. During the ceremony she stayed by my side as I was going through some deep turmoil and I felt secure that she was there. I know that without her help I would’ve broken. I was so fragile. She truely is an earth angel.

      A beautiful person and healer

    I had a truly wonderful acupuncture and sound healing session with Jessica a couple months ago and it's an experience I won't soon forget. Jessica is very powerful but so humble, authentic, vulnerable, caring, and so much more. I wish I could have a session with her every day. Highly recommend her.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To find peace and renewal while going through a huge change in my life. Empty nest and the end of a 27 year marriage all at once. Susan
