It has been an amazing 8 years serving the employees of corporations, educational institutions, and government organizations. I’ve learned so much about wellness and how to run a business and I’ve grown tremendously as a result. Enliven has been acquired by Insight Wellness Works, headed by Deserie Valloreo. I’m confident that Deserie will take the company in a positive direction, serving the wellness needs of employees in an even bigger and better way.
What’s next for me? This is what I’m really excited about! Letting Enliven go will allow me to focus on my newest venture, The Metta Center of St. Petersburg where Joran Oppelt and I have created a community space for spiritual and personal growth as well as a co-work space for wellness practitioners. We look forward to growing this space in the years to come. Also, I am returning to my first love, massage therapy with renewed energy. I have kept a few clients throughout the years of starting businesses and having babies but now, I have the desire to build up my practice again and serve more through healing touch.
But that is not all. I am also picking up my studies in Ayurveda that began in 2005. I have joined the Ayurvedic Counselor program at Florida Academy of Ayurveda. I’m really excited to offer more in the way of Ayurvedic counseling in the future. In the meantime, I’m already trained in Ayurvedic bodywork and look forward to offering those treatments, including Ayurvedic Massage, Garshana, Shirodhara and Baspa Svedhana to my clients very soon. I will be offering these services along with my usual massage services at not one, but two locations! I will be seeing clients at my office in St. Pete, located at the Metta Center as well in Tampa at Balance & Bliss Ayurveda. Stay tuned for more details on days and hours at each location.
This is all very exciting but also a big step, filled with some nerves about making the majority of my living doing bodywork again. Building a clientele is hard work but work that I welcome and look forward to. If you’ve been following me for awhile and have been thinking that you’d like to book a massage, now would be an amazing time to do it. I’m filled with positive energy and look forward to sharing my gifts.
Want to know a bit more about my massage style? I practice a blend of relaxation and therapeutic modalities infused with energy work and aromatherapy. I have been in practice since 2001 and over the years I have received special education in Ayurvedic bodywork, prenatal massage, postpartum massage, fertility massage, Reiki and craniosacral unwinding. I have a soothing approach to bodywork that includes use of energy work for grounding and healing while remaining focused on my clients’ areas of concern and addressing aches and pain with deep tissue work as needed. I customize each massage to fit my clients needs, using all of the modalities that I've learned to create a unique and specialized experience.
Here’s what my clients have said about me…
“Jennifer provides wonderful massage therapy. She is diligent in finding out where one's body needs the work and is attentive to one's preferences in regard to pressure. She incorporates healing aromatherapy and describes everything she uses so that her intention is fully comprehended. I plan to incorporate Jennifer's massages into regular self-care because they are refreshing to my body and mind.”
“Incredible woman! I've attended seminars and group discussions led by Jennifer as well as had the privilege of receiving massage and energy work from her. She is as compassionate, kind and skilled as she is empowering and uplifting. Anyone looking to feel like they are in a safe place to dive deep or simply feel nurtured - look no further.”
“I went to Jennifer for a prenatal massage and could not have been happier. I felt relaxed and at ease for the first time during a tumultuous pregnancy. She’s intuitive and warm. I highly recommend her.”
“Jennifer's massages are unique because she blends accuracy and technique with gentle and soothing support!”
