The relationship between massage therapist and client is often a close one. Massage therapists know your aches and pains, but they typically also know what stresses you out throughout the day, what you enjoy doing for fun and any other tidbits you chat about while you’re enjoying some relaxation time on the massage table. Here’s your opportunity to read up on your next massage therapist, Jennifer Entremont, and get to know more about her.
Jennifer has been a licensed massage therapist for over five years, and she is very passionate about the healing arts and the work she does to heal people from the inside out. Prior to starting her massage therapy journey, she worked in a hospital setting as a surgical technologist in the operating room, assisting with surgeries for 8 years. Jennifer’s medical background and massage therapy training and practice have given her an in-depth knowledge of the body and how it functions. She has experience working in a variety of settings, from hospitals to resorts, to spas and med-spas.
“My personal philosophy is to aid the body to a state of relaxation where it can heal itself naturally through specific applicable massage modalities like Thai yoga massage, myofascial release, reflexology, reiki, aromatherapy, yoga and even meditation,” Jennifer says. “I utilize various all-natural holistic practices to help you choose what the best modality is for you.”
Jennifer believes that wellness comes from a blend of alternative and holistic medicine and western medicine —diagnosing and treating with surgery and medication, while also focusing on alternative means to aid the body to heal itself naturally. She aims “to assist the mind, body, spirit connection through appropriate modalities of all-natural alternative and homeopathic methods to include massage, yoga and meditation.” Jennifer hopes to “empower, teach and educate clients that are interested in renewing and taking imitative in the prevention of disease.”
Her massage style is versatile and adaptable to her clients’ needs. She says, “I am able to zero into an injury and apply a specific modality like sports therapy, deep tissue or medical massage, or I can perform simple and basic relaxing strokes included in Swedish, reiki and reflexology to aid in general well-being.” Jennifer ensures clients get what they need before, during and after a massage by first completing an in-depth health history and communicating any health concerns. She believes communication is key to a great massage experience. She says, “I check in during massage to ensure proper level of pressure and ask you to verbalize any discrepancies on the table to make any necessary adjustments, and follow-up after.”
Jennifer’s favorite modality of massage is Thai yoga massage because she finds it yields amazing results for her clients. She says, “I truly love finding the tight blocked areas and assisting in these powerful opening stretches. It is a very energizing massage and clients leave feeling very relieved and refreshed afterwards.”
When she’s not improving people’s wellness through massage therapy, Jennifer is an avid hiker, biker, runner, yogi and practicing Buddhist who cares for her 18-year-old Husky. She is currently adding even more skills to her already robust background by taking classes in myofascial release and attaining her Registered Yoga Teacher – RYT200 — to teach all levels of yoga.
