About Me

My background

Judy Settle, a graduate and longtime lead instructor of the renowned Cayce/ Reilly® School of Massage in Virginia Beach, VA has studied energy therapies since 1992 when she first became interested in Reiki.

Since that time, she has become  a US Board Certified Massage Therapist, a Reiki Master/Teacher, a Jin Shin Do® acupressurist, and a Senior Authorized Jin Shin Do® Teacher with the Jin Shin Do® Foundation.  Some of her other studies include Touch for Health, Oncology Massage, Reflexology, Shiatsu, Feng Shui, & Tai Chi.

Before relocating back to her native Nova Scotia in September of 2016, Judy owned her own very successful bodymind/ wellness practice - Energy Arts Unlimited, LLC which was located in Virginia Beach, VA from 2002 to 2016. Here she enjoyed sharing the benefits of massage, acupressure, and Reiki with her clients.  

At the same time, she had a successful teaching career in both the Core and Continuing Education Programs of the Cayce/Reilly® School of Massage teaching Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure®, Reiki, and Introduction to Asian Theory.

Now resettled in Nova Scotia, Judy is looking forward to sharing what she has learned on her journey and to helping others on their own path to health and vitality! 

Besides offering individual sessions, she is also teaching classes in Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure®. Descriptions of these classes can be found in the Workshops section.

How I got started

I first became really interested in energy work and healing when I was at a very low point in my own life.  My marriage had dissolved and I was feeling the effects of that physically, mentally, and emotionally.  I was introduced to Reiki in 1992 and it changed my life!  It brought me back to my healthy self and allowed me to become "master of my own destiny" as I like to say. I continued to follow my heart and ended up moving to Virginia Beach, VA where I studied a variety of healing modalities which included massage as well as Jin Shin Do® acupressure.  This journey truly changed my life and I began to listen and follow my own intuition.  I look forward to sharing what I have learned along the way and helping others to move forward in their lives as well. 

My approach

I see myself as a witness and guide for my clients as they move into and along their journey to health and vitality.  As we work together in sessions we explore possibilities  that work best for you to produce the most beneficial results. 

Jin Shin Do® Acupressure is the modality I use most often although I do incorporate other energy work as well when appropriate. I am passionate about the acupressure because it is a gentle but very powerful modality that brings about deep relaxation and balance in the body's energy, helping on many levels.
