Jennifer had considered a career in massage for many years, but it wasn’t until she experienced her own shoulder injury that she came to believe wholeheartedly in massage and body work. While Jen was going through physical therapy for her injury she found that massage greatly complimented exercises and stretching and provided lasting relief from pain and stiffness. After healing from her injury Jen decided to pursue a career in massage so that she could help people suffering from pain and stress. She completed her massage certificate at Mildred Elley where she earned an award for academic achievement.
Following her completion of the Mildred Elley massage program Jen interned at Integrative Massage in Great Barrington where she continued to expand her knowledge and skills in massage. She has training in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Pre-natal, Myofascial Release and Medical Massage specializing in neck and low back issues, as well as experience in more energetically based modalities such as polarity. She is certified in first degree Reiki. Jen brings her knowledge of these massage techniques to every massage treatment to create a session that is customized to each client’s individual needs.
Jen's studio hours are Monday through Saturday 9 am to 6 pm.
“I believe that massage is vital, not only to healing serious or chronic pain, but to easing the stress and anxiety that comes with that pain. Massage helps on so many levels and every person can benefit from it.” - Jennifer Barry
