Wellness Practice & Testimonials
I am a licensed massage therapist with the CAMTC and a reiki master. My signature sessions are a combination of reiki, shiatsu and thai massage. I also offer swedish massage and often incorporate tui nah, acupressure, certain crystals and visualization techniques. I adjust each session to meet the needs of the client, working with injuries, releasing stuck energy, emotional blockages, assisting circulation, opening the doors to conception, comforting during pregnancy and labor. I have working delivery room experience which totally changed my life. My training comes from many different schools of thought and techniques; Running energy work, Shamanism, Reiki, eastern and western bodywork modalities; Christina Cross, Lisa Levine, Shinzo Fujimaki, Bronwyn Michaelis and Wendy Lipson are some of my teachers. I've completed my massage certification at McKinnon Institute in San Francisco and am passionately continuing my education in the healing arts.
We all have the natural ability to heal ourselves and others. Sometimes we just need a little assistance in getting us back to our natural state. My practice is about being a peaceful warrior. I believe in doing the deep work to get us where we want to be, setting goals for ourselves and also taking breaks when we need them. Striving to be our best while breathing through it all. We arrive in the session and together we do the work, creating a more spacious, balanced and peaceful happier way of life.
I look forward to assisting you and sharing some magic.
" My Reiki session with Jenn was transformative for me. Jenn was gentle, considerate and powerful. I told her I was working on letting go of not being able to get pregnant after years of trying so I could move on with my life. I wanted to be grateful for all I had and focus on the positive. I immediately noticed the energy in the room was intense. At first I just felt some buzzing flowing around my body and was seeing beautiful colors. Then everything shifted. I felt a lump in my throat that just had to come out. I wasn't sure how to let it go and Jenn helped me find my way to a cathartic release! After that I felt the energy flow through my body with a fierce intensity. It was amazing and I was able to carry that energy with me for weeks afterwards. About 6 weeks later, I was pregnant! There is no doubt in my mind that session was a factor in helping me get pregnant. I highly recommend Jenn for an empowering, positive and individualized experience. I send lots friends her way and they all come back saying she is incredible." ~ K.G., Greenpoint Brooklyn N.Y.
"I had a beautiful and nurturing session with Jen. I felt softer and more relaxed after my session with Jen. She is a bright light and a gifted healer." ~ Lisa Levine, MS LAc, Brooklyn N.Y.
"Love and gratitude to Jennifer Stewart for an AMAZING reiki session. You are truly gifted my friend. To anyone out there in need of healing, I encourage you to open your heart and mind and let this lady work on you." ~ Sarah Hamilton, Actor Writer Producer, N.Y.
"My practitioner, Jenn, was gentle, calming, and extremely gifted. I experienced a warmth, buzz, and sensations of smell, electricity and the "false hands" (it is reported that those receiving reiki can feel additional hands on their body even if their practitioner has left the room or stopped performing .. there are many beautiful explanations for this). I felt wonderful afterwards. Again, I had a very powerful healing experience. I recall during my session, Jenn asked me to breathe very deeply in my abdominal area. Nearly 24 hours later, I was rushed for an emergency removal of a 3-inch cyst on my ovary that burst. I had no idea I was harboring this, but I cannot begin to describe how grateful I am for this detection. Beautifully powerful and healing." ~ L.J.
"Jenn is an amazing well rounded practitioner who intuitively knows how to work with each client to meet them where there at.
Her Reiki work is adaptogenic based on what is needed for the body. Jenn herself is a very gentile soul and created a space for me to feel at
ease immediately. I have sent many friends to her, some that were Reiki first timers, they had great experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to
recommend her. I left feeling much clearer, lighter and relaxed... Thanks Jenn !" - M.Y. New York, NY
"I feel SO much stronger, more positive and energized. It's quite bizarre, it's like I have a different outlook on life now and feel more at ease with myself. I definitely felt you / reiki have helped me move on from a 'low' phase in my life." - Felicity, New York, NY
