Jing was founded in 2003 by directors, Rachel Fairweather and Meghan Mari, who met in New York City while working as massage therapists. Both Rachel and Meghan have extensive experience in teaching, community development and business and between them have more than 30 years experience in the massage industry working as advanced therapists and trainers.
Their aim was to start a revolution in the massage therapy in the UK and provide the type of advanced massage training available in other countries such as the USA. In 2003 Rachel and Meghan ran 3 short weekend workshops in the cutting edge techniques that had helped make their own practices successful. The feedback was phenomenal and students started to build their own successful practices using proven Jing protocols incorporating trigger point therapy, myofascial release, advanced stretching and hot stone massage.
Jing became a place to not just learn great massage techniques but to meet like minded friends, network and share passion about bodywork. The rallying cry of “Join the revolution” spread and Jing started growing into a passionate, dedicated community of students and teachers who wanted to make a difference.
