Personal Journey and Vision

Jennifer recognizes her personal journey in building self-esteem and cultivating healthy relationships as the emotional component to her own benign breast condition. She believes that emotional patterns and behaviors can affect a women's self-esteem and self-worth and inspires women in the art of self love and self care to live their most empowered selves. In addition, breast related conditions and illness may be a sign of an emotional issue that needs healing. Making positive changes that support our emotional needs by loving and nurturing ourselves may offer a preventative measure to help treat imbalances before they manifest in the body. Her journey and message has now turned into her life's work.

Her vision is to unite women in creating a new paradigm on breast issues by offering a new model of breast care that combines healing the emotional heart and utilizing lymphatic drainage techniques to encourage women to think differently in promoting breast wellness. The more we love ourselves the greater the correlation to an optimal well-being.

"Jennifer is knowledgeable about breast tissue and works her fingers deftly and skillfully over delicate areas as she locates lymph node sites and pressure points. With a glass of filtered water both before and after her session, I feel confident that any accumulated toxins will experience a lymphatic drain! I could not recommend a more skillful or sensitive lymphatic care therapist."
