Jennifer's goal is to alleviate pain while encouraging and inspiring movement towards healing the root causes of issues. This happens gradually over time, layer by layer, with complimentary therapies and deep inner self work.
She believes clients need hope and a return to optimism vs feeling stuck by a diagnosis or limited in the quality of their life. No longer restricted by her own pain, Jen intends to activate your healing and empower you to be self accountable in your holistic wellness.
Jen calls her bodywork style "Customized Intuitive blend" because she uses her sense of FEELING to be intuitively guided based on your body's feedback. Jen understands she is not able to help everyone but appreciates the opportunity to have real communication on what is working and where, or if, we can improve the outcome of each session.
Jennifer Deschene is a licensed massage therapist, heart-centered bodyworker, somatic empath, energy worker, mother to a 9yr old son, Army Reserve Veteran, and 12 year business owner who has been managing chronic pain for 20+ years.

While further educating herself and personally evolving, Jen continues on her path of balanced holistic wellness.
Jennifer has studied many healing modalities. She enjoys blending Swedish, Craniosacral therapy (CST), Esalen integrative style, Reiki Energywork, Acupressure, Thai yoga bodywork/stretching, Myofascial Release/TriggerPoint therapy, and Ashiatsu.
