Jessica Garay




Jessica is a certified Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist, Somatic Intuitive Healing™ practitioner and somatic therapy educator in Portland, Oregon. Jessica specializes in biodynamic somatic therapy, nervous system regulation, holistic emotional wellness, and embodied intuition. Her offering includes gentle bodywork that supports deepening your awareness and connection with your inner felt sense experience and connecting to a deeper understanding of one's own body, heart, and spirit. After Jessica co-created and ran a thriving and beloved yoga studio, Love Hive Yoga, Moon Vibe Sanctuary was born as a continuation of her work as a healer and teacher. Moon Vibe Sanctuary offers intuitive holistic wellness services and education crafted from decades of experience to form a unique blending of various healing modalities. Dedicated to work that supports connection to a deeper awareness of body, mind, and spirit, all offerings are designed to support awakening the profound healing capacities within every individual. Using a perspective of expansive possibility mixed with open curiosity and awareness, Jessica believes in the potential for everyone to experience a great depth of wholeness, wellbeing and joy


As a survivor of trauma, Jessica's work is informed by her own healing process with C-PTSD. As a child, she experienced a instinctual connection to the divine embodied as a guiding force that drew her towards her current path.


My story is much the same as many people; different characters but similar woundings. Healing has been a long journey but has been deeply rewarding. I am grateful to say that I am no longer held captive by my trauma or history. Through this work, I have come to know a wholeness within myself that is vast, profound, and infinite. This has taught me that a connection to boundless Joy is possible and that we are all a part of that.  I share this because I once believed that healing fully wasn't possible. My hope is that I can serve as inspiration and support for someone who might feel that way now.

I thank my precious teachers and mentors who have helped shape my path and practice. I owe so much to Anna Chitty, Liz Chitty, Peter Levine's Somatic Experiencing®, Deborah Merkle, Carol Gray, Todd Jackson, Stacy Darby, Carolyn Fine, Teresa Diaz, Mandy Tigre, Manorama, Dharma Mittra, Jasmine Tarkeshi, and Christina Sell.
