Jenn spent her youth in competitive dance and cheerleading. Her love for the arts consumed her life until high school graduation and eventually led her to pursue an education exploring how the body functions and moves.
Jenn has been a Registered Massage Therapist since 2010 and graduated from the 3000-hour RMT program from West Coast College of Massage Therapy. Since that time, she has completed several continuing education courses aiming to expand her knowledge and skills. Each course gave her a new perspective, but she was left still wanting more. She realized that many of the courses she was interested in were based on techniques that originated from Osteopathy. She began to research Osteopathy and realized that was her next path.
Jenn has competed the five-year Osteopathic Manual Practitioner program from the Canadian College of Osteopathy and is now waiting for her diploma to arrive.
With her continued studies, she strives to understand the complexities of the human body and the interrelationships between all systems/tissues in the body. Observing the body as a whole and respecting the endless connections between one structure influencing another. Osteopathy aims to restore harmony in the body and eliminate barriers that may impede the body to autoregulate and self-heal.
For Jenn, health is the reflection of balance in the body, this remains the goal of each treatment. With each appointment she performs a full assessment with the intent of finding the root cause of the pain and/or dysfunction, as it is often not as it appears. The treatments are dynamic and require the patient to move into different positions on and off the table. Because of this, it is required to come to your appointment in appropriate clothing that will not impede the treatment. Loose fitting pants, non-compressive leggings, shorts, tank top, or sports bra is ideal.
Some techniques that are utilized are myofascial release, visceral manipulation, craniosacral therapy, muscle energy technique, and joint mobilization.
