J Sheffield (they/them pronouns)
DC-Based, Licensed Massage Therapist
My path to becoming a bodyworker was encouraged by the need I witnessed for community care in organizing and activist spaces. I strive to offer massage therapy that is accessible and affirming to queer and trans folks, and folks of Color. I am committed to offering bodywork as a form of self and community care to help sustain us in our daily lives and activism. I strive to offer work that is trauma-informed, race-informed, fat and body positive, and comfortable in a way that honors how, when, and where clients want to, and don’t want to, receive touch. Massage is provided at the client's comfort level of undress (while draped/under a sheet) or clothed. I consider this life-long work, and am committed to receiving client feedback to better my understanding and practice.
