Jen is a graduate of the Aveda Institute of Minneapolis, as well as a Registered Yoga Teacher and Reiki Practitioner. She is passionate about Holistic Health and Wellness. Specializing in Clinical Deep Tissue Therapy for acute and chronic pain management, Jen utilizes a combination of Cupping Therapy, Hot Stones, and Gua Sha Myofascial Release in her sessions.
Deep Tissue Massage involves applying firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). It's used for chronic aches and pain as well as contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, or sore muscles.
Heated basalt stones are used to warm and relax tight, sore muscles. The comfort and relaxation of a hot stone massage can help ease mental stress and combat some of the symptoms of anxiety disorders and depression.
Cupping is a Traditional Chinese Therapy, believed to help balance yin and yang, or the negative and positive, within the body. Restoring balance between these two extremes is thought to help with the body’s resistance to pathogens as well as its ability to increase blood flow and reduce pain.
Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed, relieving muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It may also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue.
