Avalanches of tension once spilled over Jennifer Stogryn's neck and shoulders, causing debilitating headaches that plagued her for years. Relief didn't come from pain-masking medications or wearing really soft hats, but from the healing touch of holistic bodywork. With her discovery of the therapy's potentially life-changing effects, she went on to learn the techniques herself by studying at the DoveStar Institute. After receiving hands-on training in Swedish, Kriya, reflexology, and hot-stone bodywork, Jennifer furthered her studies with a yearlong intensive in the art of Reiki?an energy-based treatment designed to realign the body's pathways?and is now a Reiki Master.
Jennifer also manipulates the delicate auras herself, balancing inner energies through light touches in an effort to optimize health and happiness. During other bodywork, she focuses on basic bodily ailments in hot-stone, Amma deep-tissue, and pregnancy massages that pair with stints on an Amethyst BioMat, which suffuses bodies with far-infrared rays to promote the purging of toxins and relief of pain.
