What Kind of Massage Do I Offer?

  • Swedish
  • Deep Tissue/ Sports Massage
  • Thai style stretching
  • Reflexology for Hands and Feet
  • Reiki (hands on healing/energy work)
  • Acupressure
  • Pregnancy Massage


Since 2002, I have been a practicing and certified massage therapist. My style is a blend of many different techniques developed from both eastern and western healing systems. The massage is done on a comfortable massage table or a floor pad for Thai massage, and a blend of organic scent-free lotion, light oils and aromatherapy scents are used. Clients who are looking for a firm pressure are always happily surprised by my firm and direct deep tissue massage. Yet, I am sensitive to those who like a softer massage. 


In addition, I employ stretching and joint mobilization techniques to bring energy and flexibility back into tight spots. I have worked along side of chiropractors and sports medicine doctors, whom have influenced my massage style to be both corrective and relaxing. I have experience in alleviating problems such as: Sciatica, TMJ, tennis elbow, ankle sprains, "frozen shoulder", Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, pulled hamstrings, Plantar Fascia and Fibromyalgia. 


As an athlete who enjoys training in cycling, swimming, yoga, running and tennis I enjoy helping other athletes recover from injuries or over-training. I also greatly enjoy assisting pregnant women in maintaining health and comfort through massage and Thai stretching.

    Testimonals from Happy Clients:


    "A massage from Jenny is a wonderful experience. She delivers her massages in the manner of a generous, caring person, and I leave the session feeling enormously grateful, and really, really good." - Chris S.


    "Jenny excels at finding the balance between soothing and relaxing bodywork and a much-needed therapeutic touch. She's been my primary massage therapist for the past 4 years and is so in tune with my body that she can tell when I'm not stretching enough. She augments her massage by introducing yoga-like stretching techniques for me which helps considerably with my flexibility." - M. Wong (triathlete)


    "I have been geting massage for over 15 years and Jenny is the first therapist I have ever recommended or seen on a regular basis. She is by far the most accomplished massage therapist I have ever seen. Her ability to work from very deep to very light allows her to respond to what my body needs on any particular day. Jenny's warmth and compassion make me feel at ease whenever I see her and I leave my session looking forward to the next massage."- C.P.


    "She's very responsive to individual needs, and highly knowledgable about physiology so I feel safe letting her work on areas that are tight or sore. As a woman, I feel particularly at ease with her gentle style and relaxing environment she provides for the massage." - B.C.


    "As an athletic person my body requires a strong, knowledgable, and precise masseuse. Jennifer has those attributes and more. Her combination of pressure point massage and stretching leaves me feeling physically and mentally restored. This is why I have continued to use her massage services for over 5 years. Overall the best massage experience I have ever had."- D.Johnson
