Wisdom from the Body, Joy from the Heart

I've been a massage therapist since 2001, but I began my hands-on healing work in 1998 with Reiki. 2001 was such an incredible time to be immersed in a culture of healing and healers, while around me the full-scale trauma that took the US by storm after the attacks was having its ripple in our country and in individual hearts. One reason I had been drawn into studying massage because I wanted to do more, and have access to more people to help. In the state where I was living, only ministers a... more

I like Jennie's gentle, quiet, well paced, delivery of and solicitation of information, both seeking & offering guidance for a finely tuned individual session. I am relaxed in the trustworthy atmosphere Jennie creates, which aids my ability to deepen my attention and focus. I also appreciate Jennie's light sense of humor and genuinely expressed humility. I look forward very much to the certain growth I will attain under her care.

Jennie is a superbly intuitive massage therapist. I am not sure how she knew, but for my first time she used exactly the right amount of pressure without my saying a thing. I felt relaxed and refreshed and rewarded. My daughter also came and was equally happy with her experience. She was also very patient with us because we were late and got a bit lost. But once we got there everything was smooth.
