#TrySomethingNew – Massage With Jen

January 7, 2020

This experience was amazing!! If you ever have the opportunity to be in the presence of Jen Wright, it is a blessing. Not only is Jen a colleague, she is also my boss and what a warrior of a person she is! In our treatment today, I got to experience craniosacral therapy for the first time and she also included some energy and neuromuscular work in the treatment and…wow! I am completely grounded and at peace as I write this now. I am not one to flaunt my knowledge of energy work, I’m not a practiced energy worker myself nor I’ll admit, do I understand all the wonderful benefits of how it can be integrated into a therapeutic treatment, but my goodness has Jen ever mastered it! She explained that everyone experiences these types of treatments differently and I was fortunate enough to have the most blissful treatment EVER!

Raise your hand (go on, I’l be able to tell!) if you’ve said or heard someone say “If I’m not in tears by the end of this treatment then the massage is unless” – WRONG! The body doesn’t need to feel pain to relieve pain. Massage therapy is a delicate balance between challenging tissue in a therapeutic way and then integrating healing techniques to relax and release the targeted tissue. Jen IS that balance, and she throws in an added bonus of working through the emotional walls that our bodies put up consciously or even unconsciously. She is not fluffy or voodooey at all, she explains the process through scientific facts, anatomical physiology and how it all ties together with massage and craniosacral work. Whether you are a spiritual butterfly or a science forward person, she allows you to see things through your own beliefs and interpretations and I believe that’s what sets her apart from the rest.

For myself, I had a very empowering treatment that allowed me to see where my strengths and weaknesses are. We worked through muscle trigger points in my back to grounding my feet and protecting my inner healer. We also worked on the skull to see where things are moving with ease or are slightly “stickier”. I was able to leave this treatment feeling rejuvenated and at peace. I believe everyone should feel this way, rejuvenated and at one with oneself. Life can be extremely overwhelming at times and there are moments when we need to look inward to heal to move forward. 

Jen is the founder and creator of Whole Therapy. She understood that it was not about the money but how we as practitioners can help heal others as a team, as a whole. I would highly recommend, if you can find a spot in her busy schedule, that you experience a treatment with her healing hands. They are completely magical!
