Bloom Massage Therapy is owned and operated by Jennifer Kenneally, LMT. Jen came to a career in Massage Therapy because of her training in theatre and dance. As an active performer, teacher and choreographer she learned first-hand how the body feels when it is overworked and in a state of dysfunction. Dancers, as well as other athletes are often told to “work through” pain or injury; “The Show Must Go On!” We ignore our pain and write it off as “normal” or “part of the job”. Jen believed this for almost two decades until her body had had enough.
Years ago, during a particularly intense tech week for a musical production she was starring in, Jen had pain in her back that was so bad she couldn’t dance or sing, it hurt to inhale, twist or bend! After receiving massage and other forms of bodywork, she returned to the show and had many successful performances. This experience inspired her to follow a dream she had had for a long time, and she immediately signed up for Massage Therapy School. On the day of her graduation, the President of the school asked her to join the staff and become a Teachers Assistant and Sciences Tutor. Following graduation she began her studies in CranioSacral Therapy.
As a therapist Jen is communicative and encouraging with her clients so they can be a mindful and active part of their own healing and prevention. Please visit the Bloom Massage Therapy Yelp page to see what her clients have to say!
