Feel the connection between body-mind-
spirit with a unique blend of
Acupressure, Shiatsu and Thai Assisted Yoga
Harmonizing the body, mind, and spirit as intertwining
elements of health is core to Asian Bodywork Therapy
(ABT). Pressure and stretching of meridians and acu-
points, bring renewed vitality to the musculoskeletal
and organ systems. Acupressure is a healing technique
developed in Asia more than 5,000 years ago. Gentle but
firm finger pressure on specific points of the body
stimulate the body’s innate capacity to heal, while
relaxing the body.
Jen integrates Acupressure, Thai
yoga, Barefoot and Zen Shiatsu. Sessions vary according
to the needs of the client, from deep pressure and
stretching to the calm of holding acupressure points.
Jen may also use external applications of medicinal
plants, heat or cold, recommendations of exercise or
rest to help give you the tools to restore your health.
The combination of herbal remedies with Asian
Bodywork can provide a holistic approach to health and
healing. Bodywork creates an invitation to relax and
release old patterns, while your body receives deeper
healing messages via acupressure points and
meridians. Herbal remedies tend to work more slowly
and over a longer period of time. Blending the two
together creates a long term strategy for improving and
maintaining health. Jen sees her role as a guide
providing support for each client to cultivate increased
awareness, vitality, and healing in their lives.
LET’s GET CLEAR: Massage is a very broad term. It is the
word we commonly used to generally describe human
therapeutic touch. I do not do massage. I have studied
Eastern healing traditions extensively, originally as a
Clinical Herbalist and later as an Asian Bodywork
Therapist. I am fascinated by Oriental Medicine
philosophies as they are non-linear; instead of looking
at the body as mechanical equipment the patterns of
nature provide windows to understand the patterns of
our limitations. Our western minds are mostly
captivated by the physical, and understandably so
when in pain, but our bodies are much more complex
that just cellular material. I want your pain and
discomfort to be relieved but rather than just focusing
on muscle tissue, I am concerned with the total health
of your body.
