J Sheffield (they/them pronouns)
Located in Washington, DC, USA on Nacotchtank (Anacostan) and Piscataway land

My path to becoming a bodyworker was encouraged by the burnout in organizing and activist spaces, and I am committed to offering bodywork and embodiment support in service of encouraging self and community care. I believe in every client’s own body wisdom and ability to create more space and capacity in the nervous system; I am here to support that, to witness, create a container, and hold space for anything that comes up and wants to be acknowledged. I am a white, queer, non-binary human and I strive to offer work that is accessible and affirming to queer and trans folks, and Black and Indigenous folks and People of Color. Please email me at bodyworkwithj@gmail.com if professional level prices at Freed Bodyworks (where I work) are not financially accessible, but sliding scale work would make bodywork possible for you. QTBIPOC will be prioritized. More info on my sliding scale on the logistics page. I strive to offer work that is consent-based, trauma-informed, race-informed, fat and body affirming, and comfortable in a way that honors how, when, and where clients want to, and don’t want to, receive touch. I provide touch at the client's comfort level of undress or clothed (while some or all of the body remains draped, meaning under a sheet). Please know that I consider receiving client feedback a gift to better my understanding and practice.

I don't like being touched by people generally and I felt super comfortable with them because I knew they would be affirming to my identity and also my body."
