Gail Okray

Gail Okray was inspired by her passion for the Japanese art of Jin Shin Jyutsu® and her passion to work with animals of all kinds to open Key Elements for Animals. She has been a Jin Shin Jyutsu® Physio-philosophy practitioner since 1998.  Over the years, Gail has given sessions to a variety of animal species helping them towards a vibrant life through Jin Shin Jyutsu® self-care workshops or private sessions. Gail has been in the world of purebred dogs for over 30 years, competing in the show ring, agility and rally competition. Gail continues to raise Boston Terriers and compete in dog events.

Growing up on a farm near Green Bay, WI, Gail is comfortable with any size animal that needs a Jin Shin Jyutsu® session, from newborn kitten and pup, to parakeet, donkey or horse.

A life-altering illness led Gail to find the ancient Japanese art of Jin Shin Jyutsu®. Prior to that Gail received her BS degree in Nutritional Sciences from the UW Green-Bay, in Green Bay, WI. Gail worked in the quality assurance laboratory at a lakeshore food company analyzing nutritional and microbiological components in their USDA accredited laboratory.

Gail shares her knowledge of the Japanese art of Jin Shin Jyutsu® with the community through self-care workshops.

Mary Hille

Mary Hille grew up in rural Green Bay, WI. Mary has worked with animals of all sizes growing up on the family farm. A Jin Shin Jyutsu® Physio-philosophy practitioner since 2008, Mary shares animal sessions with horses. Just calling their names brings them running to the gate. Her favorite is a gray quarter horse is name Trophy. Trophy is over 20 years old with a congenital heart defect and has a persistent limp her whole life. Regular session of the Japanese art of Jin Shin Jyutsu has reduced her limp and help with all of her aches and pains. Trophy likes her Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions anywhere she is. Many times with no halter just an undisturbed spot in the paddock. Mary’s daughter Jessica is an avid rider and Mary is able to share session with the horses Jessica rides.
