Massage therapy has been Jenny’s professional passion for over 12 years. She has helped many clients struggling with a variety of issues such as specific pain, chronic pain, limitations in movement, and emotional/mental stress. Jenny’s holistic approach is based on her intuition, years of experience, and her current training in two primary techniques: John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release Approach® and Upledger CranioSacral Therapy. Her treatments facilitate long lasting changes to the client’s soft tissue health and overall well-being by addressing fascial restrictions in the body.
Because each person has unique responses to manual therapy and therapeutic bodywork, Jenny relies on your honest feedback and her listening skills to create a customized session. This partnership supports your body’s innate ability to heal itself. Since lifestyle changes are often a part of the process of whole body healing, she might suggest self-care resources, encouraging clients to explore new forms of movement, including avenues for strengthening and stretching.
When she’s not busy with clients, attending a continuing education seminar, going on adventures with her daughter, or spending quality time with family, friends, and her two dogs, Jenny enjoys exploring new workouts and movement, testing the limits of her Meniere’s Disease symptoms. Current favorites include dance cardio, intuitive movement, and strength training with weights. Art has been a long time passion. She enjoys abstract painting with acrylics.
Jenny was born and raised in New Jersey by Filipino parents. She came to the DC area to attend the George Washington University. After graduating in 2000 with a BA in Psychology, she began studies in the fields of art therapy, early childhood education, and nursing before dedicating herself to lifelong learning as a massage therapist.
