Jen is a Certified Practitioner of Esoteric Healing, trained directly by Barbara Briner, DO, Founder of the National Association for Esoteric Healing. She has worked as a Physical Therapist for over 20yrs, graduating from Grand Valley State University with an MSPT in 1995. She remains dedicated to her Physical Therapy profession but works on a contingent basis now as she is shifting her focus toward her Esoteric Healing Practice.
Through her practice in manual therapy, She developed a practical understanding that “energy follows thought” and searched for more research in this area. This search brought her to Esoteric Healing and Dr. Barbara Briner. She found credibility in Dr. Briner, who taught through Michigan State University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine. This credibility was necessary for her “PT brain” that needed all treatments to be “evidenced based”. She soon learned that in order to get to the root cause of many of her patient’s problems, She needed to look deeper into their energy fields. For example, the root of the physical problem may be an emotional trauma from childhood which over time, left untouched, has presented itself as a physical problem. Through energy work, we can remove that emotional block and finally heal that physical pain or problem which has resulted.
Jen finds that Esoteric work is a perfect adjunct to her traditional Physical Therapy treatments and in some cases can be more beneficial. Following this path has brought Jen a new awareness, awakened intuition and much deeper spiritual growth. She truly believes that energy work is the future of medicine.
A little bit about Jen personally: Jen is married and has two teenagers and a dog. When she is not practicing Physical Therapy or Esoteric Healing, She is spending time with her family. In other words, she is running kids to basketball, dance, boyscouts, Science Olympiad, youth group, ski bowl and list goes on and on :). When she actually has some quiet time for herself, She likes to exercise, do Tai Chi, read and meditate. She also loves to scrapbook, garden, walk the boardwalk, ski, golf, and hang out with family and friends.
Jen provides a variety of workshops sharing her knowledge and understanding of healing and meditation. She is a joy.
