Acupressure, Shiatsu and Thai Assisted
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
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.
