ABOUT JENNA ANJALI
Jenna Anjali is a nationally certified Massage Therapist, Pilates instructor and Yoga teacher with over 15 years experience. She specializes in combining movement with manual therapy to restore balance, rehabilitate injuries and get to the root cause of chronic pain. She enjoys working with a diverse group of clientele ranging from seniors to pre and post-partum women.
Jenna grew up in an environment where she was introduced to Reiki, yoga and sound healing at a young age and naturally gravitated towards the healing arts. Through her own journey with scoliosis and spinal stenosis, she discovered the benefits of yoga, Pilates and bodywork first hand. Using the same techniques she uses with clients, she was able to get herself out of pain and even avoid surgery.
Jenna began practicing yoga and studying yoga therapy in her late teens and became a certified yoga instructor in 2004 through Anusara yoga. In 2005, she traveled to Thailand to become certified in Thai Massage. Thirsty to learn more, she then completed a two- year massage certification at the Southwest Institute of the Healing Arts. While studying various massage modalities, she was additionally certified in Cranial Sacral Unwinding (Polarity Healing Arts), Cranial Sacral Therapy (Upledger Institute), and became an AP Polarity Practitioner.
Jenna discovered Pilates while searching for new ways to strengthen and rehabilitate her injuries from the demands of Indian dance. Wanting to help others achieve the same results, she became a certified Pilates instructor in 2012 through Polestar Pilates.
In 2014, Jenna began studying the Hendrickson Method with Tom Hendrickson and has completed three years of training under his guidance. This style of Orthopedic Massage is a gentle approach which blends Eastern philosophy with evidence-based manual therapy techniques. It combines very specific soft tissue unwinding strokes with joint mobilization and muscle activation. These sessions are very effective at re-educating the nervous system by strengthening communication to the muscles and joints, relieving pain and dysfunction at its source.
Jenna is always interested in growing as a therapist and learning more to help her clients. With her free time, she dances with Nava Dance Collective and loves to garden, hike, camp and paddle board
