Acupressure & Back Pain

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.
