Jennifer Rootes, CMT - Massage Therapist
Since 2002, Jennifer has been a certified and practicing massage therapist. Her style is a blend of many different techniques developed from both Eastern and Western healing systems. She confidently offers: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports Therapy, Myofascial Release, Acupressure, Tui Na, Thai Stretching, and Pregnancy Massage. Her clients are often happily surprised by her ability to provide firm pressure - yet, she is sensitive to those who like a softer touch. To aid the journey of relaxation and release, she employs stretching and joint mobilization techniques to bring energy and flexibility back into tight spots. Her professional experience includes working alongside chiropractors and sports medicine doctors, whom influenced her massage style to be both corrective and relaxing.
She has success in alleviating problems such as: sciatica, TMJ, tennis elbow, migraines, ankle sprains, "frozen shoulder", carpal tunnel syndrome, pulled hamstrings, plantar fasciitis and fibromyalgia. She loves to see her clients rejuvenated after a session and believes that “no session is the same for each body’s story is unique and that is the beauty of this healing practice”.
