Jennifer Jenks; Licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist and Reiki Master:
Jennifer was introduced into the world of alternative healing avenues when two of her younger siblings were diagnosed with Autism ten years ago. Finding very little help for them in the medical arena, her mother turned to alternative and holistic paths and found great success with simply changing the foods that she fed them. The progress her siblings made left a profound impression her as she grew older and started a family of her own. As luck would have it, her husband’s family was even more rooted in herbal remedies and alternative health than her own, holding several degrees and accomplishments in the naturopathic field, and she learned much from their years of experience.
Her quest for more information in the alternative healing domain led her to study Reiki with Dr. Susan Barry and then ultimately led her to The Bodhi Tree Center for Healing Arts. It was there she found a natural talent for massage and discovered how important healing touch could be. While she was there, she studied many styles and techniques including; Swedish Massage, Lymphatic Therapy, Positional Release, Reflexology, Acupressure, Trigger Point Therapy, Hot Stone Massage, Deep Tissue Therapy, Rejuvenation Massage and many others.
She received her Reiki Master Certification in 2013 after a year-long course of study with Dr. Barry and is looking forward to sharing this new gift with interested clients. Her unique style is a combination of several of these techniques and easily adapts to each client's indiviual needs. Her objective in her practice at Body Bliss, is to assist each client on their journey to a healthier body, mind and spirit.
"Jennifer made me feel comfortable and at ease. She was able to target all of my problem areas and ones that I didn't even know were bothering me as well."
"This woman is AMAZING! I feel so alive and refreshed after a massage with her. I definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a massage!"
"I have had a massage for a neck injury for years. Lived in Calistoga going to almost all the spas there. I've experienced many different types of massage. I've been to much fancier spas than A New U, but I find Jennifer to be one of the best massage therapists I've ever had treatment from. She truly offers a five-star experience."
"Jennifer gives a great massage, and she's very attentive. I will definitely go back."
"This was by far the best massage I've had. Jennifer was the greatest. Thanks, I'll be back when I'm in town."
"Jennifer did an amazing job. Her deep tissue pressure was the best in the business. I had some extensive injuries going in and she paid extensive attention to detail in those areas to prevent pain."
"Jennifer is the best! She is always attentive to what I need each visit."
