Gail Okray

Gail Okray was inspired by her passion for the Japanese art of Jin Shin Jyutsu® to open Key Elements for health. She has been a Jin Shin Jyutsu® Physio-philosophy practitioner since 1998. Over the years, Gail has motivated hundreds of individuals to move toward a healthier and more vibrant life through this ancient Japanese art. Self-care workshops and private Jin Shin Jyutsu® sessions helped Gail to achieve this goal. Gail loves to work with clients of all ages—babies, young people, and adults.

Gail is one of the Key Elements for Animals practitioners as well. Gail offers sessions for a variety of animals. (See the ‘Animals’ tab on the Home page for more information on how Jin Shin Jyutsu® can help your companion animal.)

A life-altering illness led Gail to find Jin Shin Jyutsu. Gail’s own experience with chronic pain associated with fibromyalgia brought her to this ancient Japanese art. Though Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions and the power of self-help, Gail was able to help herself from a state of pain, muscle discomfort and weakness to a fuller more productive life. Chronic pain clients who seek Gail for treatment options appreciate her gentle touch and personal experience of living through chronic pain. Gail is a huge proponent of the power of self-help and empowers each client with personalized home care between sessions.

Gail shares her knowledge of Japanese art of Jin Shin Jyutsu® with the community through self-care workshops, at community outreach programs through Learning in Retirement, Aging and Disability Resource Center, Beacon House, and Triumph Cancer Resource Center, Inc. Gail is also a resource to local practitioners by leading Jin Shin Jyutsu® study groups and organizing practitioner level classes in Green Bay, WI.

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 more than 20 years old with a congenital heart defect and has had a persistent limp her whole life. Regular sessions of the Japanese art of Jin Shin Jyutsu have reduced her limp and helped 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 sessions with the horses Jessica rides.
