One of the things that inspired Jennifer Pejo to become an athletic trainer was the vague medical advice she received after her own sports injuries when she was growing up. She wanted to help others recover more quickly through treatment and rehabilitation and teach them about the healing process along the way.
Over the course of her career, Jennifer has worked with professional and Olympic athletes, discovering that massage therapy provided both healing and pain relief. Today, Jennifer runs Wild Orchid Event Production, LLC, where she calms muscles with a variety of modalities including Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massage. You can also opt for hot stone treatments and reflexology, which taps into the body's internal connections through points in the feet to reduce the effects of aches and pains.
