My name is Mary F. Jenn, and I have been doing professional Massage Therapy since 2002. I am a Minnesota native who recently returned to the Twin Cities after living in California my entire adult life, and recently became nationally certified by the FSMTB. After cycling, dancing, snowboarding, climbing, hiking, yoga-ing and running my way through life with a club foot—and a few spills along the way, I have spent most of my adult life learning how to live a full, active life relatively pain–free. I left the dot–com industry in 2001, became a Certified Massage Therapist in 2002 and have been fascinated with how the body works ever since. I have studied all over Northern California: Anatomy with Rolfer Michael Murphy, a Cadaver Workshop at the Body Therapy Institute, Trigger Point Therapy at San Francisco School of Massage, and Advanced Rotator Cuff Therapy at the Neuromuscular Institute in Boston. I was the owner and Founder of True Massage & Wellness in San Francisco, and my clients include people from all walks of life—from rock stars and professional athletes, to CEOs and software engineers—that want to keep doing the things they love to do!
I graduated in 2000 with a Bachelor's degree from San Jose State University in Studio Art, Computers in Fine Art. During and after college, I worked in technology as a web developer and still enjoy working on my own website.
In 2002, I received my professional massage therapist certification from Phillips School of Massage in Nevada City, CA. My education there included a clinical internship, as well as experience working with the special needs of seniors, sufferers of PTSD and outpatient oncology patients. Since then, I worked at International Orange—a busy San Francisco spa, and APEX Fitness—a Financial District personal training facility. Between those two facilities, I was able to further hone my skills and gained experience with pre-natal massage, as well as the special needs of all sorts of athletes, including runners, dancers, bodybuilders and yogis. I have since taken workshops all over the Bay Area and United States, including a Rotator Cuff workshop and a Cadaver workshop.
The field of bodywork and massage is so vast and it never ceases to fascinate me. Therefore, I am constantly seeking new ways to more deeply understand the structure of the human body and the body/mind connection. So along with reading books on massage and Trigger Point Therapy, I am always taking classes to deepen my understanding. hide
