Jennie's treatments are generally deep tissue but she also has a softer side to accommodate prenatal/postnatal and infant massage. Jennie has found success in treating everything from scar tissue release, chronic and acute injuries, to abdomen massage for constipation and IBS symptoms. 

Jennie has completed continuing education classes in pelvic floor dysfunction, orthopaedic treatment of the shoulder and pelvic girdles, Yammuna ball rolling (using balls to release myofascial adhesions). In the future she is hoping to continue her education in scar release with the focus on c-sections, mastectomy and problematic post operative scar tissue.
