When I came for the first visit with Jennifer, I was a scared, hot mess. My body hadn’t felt right in a good four years and I was worried I might need surgery. I’d been through physical therapy before, so I trusted the process, but I’d reached a point where PT wasn’t helping either. Jennifer listened to all of my fears and patiently explained that none of my fears were physically possible. Then she set up an exercise program tailored for me, and since I have to drive to see her, she scheduled phone calls to check in since I couldn’t come see her more than once a month.
At the beginning, I’m not going to lie, I was still skeptical, but I found I liked the yoga she suggested and I was feeling better than I had in a long time. But as I kept up with the exercises at home, and made new progress seeing her, I started to see that everything she explained about my body was true, and I was improving. We set a goal for my PT, and I reached it pretty quickly, and that just gave me more motivation to keep trying.
Jennifer also referred me for myofascial massage, which is the best massage I’ve ever had, and it perfectly complemented my goals in PT. I feel like Jennifer took the time to understand what works with my lifestyle and personality, and she encouraged me to look at all different facets of my health, not just my pelvis, which had been my only focus for years.
I treated with Jennifer about 7 times, and I have transformed from a sobbing, curled-in lady who felt 45 to feeling like myself in my late 20’s again. (I’m 38.) I can’t say enough about Jennifer’s incredible practice. She has a nurturing, calming presence and a fantastic sense of humor, and that helped me so much emotionally. I felt like I could tell her everything I’d worried about, no matter how embarrassing, and she never flinched. And once I could let go of fear and started moving again, I started to trust my body more, and remember how I used to love to move, and I am honestly a happier person overall because I feel I have my body back. Treating with Jennifer has been an invaluable experience, and I’m so happy I found her.
