Jennifer – Expert LMT

Jennifer is a licensed Massage Therapist who graduated from CenterPoint Massage & Shiatsu Therapy School & Clinic in the Spring of 2020. Upon learning that eastern forms of bodywork address body disturbances both on a root (internal/organ) and a branch (physical/skeletomuscular) level, she was able to find a holistic practice that echoed her beliefs. Unlike most of her classmates, Jennifer elected to keep her school training focused exclusively on the eastern therapies of shiatsu and traditional Chinese medicine.

One of Jennifer’s greatest pleasures in sharing Shiatsu with her client is helping them understand the bigger picture of what is happening with their bodies. Those moments when they learn that some of the more bizarre “ticks “ they’ve gotten used to dealing with are actually part of a larger pattern of disharmony. She also loving sharing diet and supplemental ideas to empower her clients to continue working on moving their bodies away from chronic patterns of disharmony and more in line with their natural homeostasis.
