"When I came into see Jennifer I was in a VERY SORRY state. 28 weeks pregnant (and counting), had been on a road trip for the last 3 days (~300miles of driving/day), 3 nights of different cruddy mattresses, being in a car accident where we were rear-ended, and had JUST suffered a bout of food poisoning that same morning. I had a high-stress weekend ahead of me full of family obligations and a wedding and I knew I would not be at my best in my current state. My back muscles were so tight I was in constant discomfort and I felt negative and exhausted.
I was sooo relieved she was able to fit me in on the same day I requested the appointment. Jennifer listened to me vent about how horrible the past few days had been, she asked about my pain-related symptoms and their locations and then she got down to work. Within minutes we were both laughing as she worked diligently on me. I must admit, I was skeptical about her approach of "energy work" which involves lightly rocking/shaking hands on problematic areas and even areas which don't SEEM to be connected to the problematic area. For example she worked on some (trigger?) points in my forearm that she claimed would help relax muscles in my shoulder. I wasn't convinced during the treatment, but I do believe in pressure points, accupuncture lines/merridians/channels, etc. so I did my best to breathe through any discomfort and try to do MY part to let tension go.
By the end of the session I definitely felt my muscles had loosened up a bit and "settled down". I thanked her and left. I slept like a BABY that night and the next morning my back was fully relaxed and I caught myself singing and laughing (a 180 from where I had been the previous day). I feel recovered and that I can confidently take on the upcoming challenges now that my body is back in function.
Thank you Jennifer! If I lived in this area, I would totally be one of your regular clients, but as I was just passing through I must say "thank you" in the form of this review and wish you the best as you continue on your journey of being an excellent healer. Thank you for rescuing what was left of my vacation. I am sure I would still be in a world of pain and misery without your skilled hands!"
