Jill Cihla

healing practitioner

Jill's journey in self-care began in 2005, where she managed an Ayurvedic-based spa on the West Coast. After taking a break to raise a family and provide care at a cancer hospital in Seattle, she began to take a second look at how she was living, realizing the importance of leading a simple and balanced life.

 

The years managing a spa drew Jill back towards creating a healing space, and she gravitated toward meditation and energy work, finding the means to reconnect with herself and others. In October 2018, she became a Reiki practitioner, and in 2019, she completed her certification in Integrative Reflexology®️.

 

In joining the Moxie team Jill's intention is to incorporate these energy modalities to create a space for overall well-being and peace. She believes energy work and finding balance are the keys to a continual foundation of health for our mind, body, and soul, and she looks forward to helping each client discover the benefits of self-care and their path to peace.

 

During her spare time, Jill loves to read, hike, journal and enjoy 'soul-feeding' activities with her family. She believes it is essential to find moments of simplicity during the day in order to be present and take care of herself and others. One day she'd like to contribute towards food security by participating in a community garden and plant several trees to be enjoyed by future generations.
