Acupressure & Back Pain

Feel the connection between body-mind-

spirit with a unique blend of

Acupressure, Shiatsu and Thai Assisted

Yoga Therapies.


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 use 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 for understanding

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 than 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 being.
