Highly recommended for maximum benefits, My Signature Massage!
ADVANCED TECHNIQUES are integrated into each massage, for a Result Oriented treatment that also leaves you feeling completely relaxed, renewed, and rejuvenated!
Regular sessions can go a long way to treat what ails you. Even if pain/dysfunction are related to something therapeutic massage cannot fully remedy, it can help manage the stress associated with chronic pain syndromes, boost immunity, improve range of motion, and keep compensating muscle groups in balance, so that other issues are less likely to develop.
Other massage types are available with one price for all sessions, offering less therapeutic bodywork and/or time.
There is something for everyone!

About Jan Jakubowski, LMT:
Being part of a family massage therapy business, I grew up with massage, and received many massages before I became a therapist myself. Unbeknownst to me, great knowledge was being passed onto me with each massage I received!
I am very proud of the legacy of my family's business, which began with my mother (now 96 years old). She was a pioneer in bringing massage therapy out of the darkness and into the light in Phoenix many years ago.
After becoming a massage therapist herself, she opened the first fully accredited massage college in Phoenix at the time: The Phoenix Therapeutic Massage College (later sold).
Two subsidiary companies followed: A therapeutic clinic, and an on call massage service, which supplied therapists to most of the Valley's high end resorts for many years.
We were established as being the forerunner in the industry at the time. Our strong commitment to establish higher standards and laws, has helped to evolve the massage therapy industry into what it is known to be today: A highly respected and sought after preventative health care modality.
My Journey into Massage Therapy:
Prior to 1989, I worked in accounting/bookkeeping for many years. My last employer was a local General Contractor, where I was a full charge bookkeeper, responsible for all phases of construction accounting, payroll, and preparations for CPA's.
With a downturn in the economy, this company went out of business and my life changed. But, that put me on an entirely different pathway, one that my mother had always encouraged me to take...
I went to massage college, and graduated from The Phoenix Therapeutic Massage College in 1989. I immediately began my career at The Village Racquet & Health Club, where I was an Independent Contractor, Lead Therapist, and the Operations Manager through October 2002. With a change in ownership, I became a part-time employee from October 2002 - November 2006.
Some time was spent working with Dr. Alan Abromovitz MD (Pain Specialist). Part of his success in treating chronic pain patients was including 3 massages per week into their treatment protocol. It was a rewarding
experience to see how much they improved with regular massage!
A Touch of Balance Massage for Health began part time in 2002, and went full time in 2006. My business has become what I have envisioned it to be.
In consistent practice for 34 years, and still going strong!
Establishing this many years in the massage industry doesn't come easy. Alone, I have accumulated 89,000 hours of hands on experience and I'm still counting!
Most of my progression and growth has not been learned in a classroom, but by working, experiencing, and being with so many different elements that have come my way as a long time massage therapist.
This is a field where one never stops learning, growing, and progressing. I engage in regular continuing education and I'm always doing some sort of self education associated with bodywork and healing.
My strong body, mind and spirit have allowed me to do a lot of hard physical work. With a lot of determination and gratitude, I strive to be my best, and I am committed to becoming even better with each passing year, so that I can pass it all along to you!
