-B.W. (register nurse)
In April 2015 I was at the end of my rope trying to find a way to manage my psoriasis when I came across an Intrinsic Health Source brochure, I called Jeannine and explained my situation. She made no promises about how she can help, as she has never treated anyone with my condition. After going to a dermatologist for 9 months of laser treatments twice a week I didn't find much improvement. Wanting to avoid long term use of medications, I explored services at Intrinsic Health Source. Taking a holistic approach, Jeannine not only uses her nursing knowledge to assess my psoriasis, she also evaluated my nutritional/lifestyle habits, environmental factors and how the body's energy system was impacted. She developed a care plan that included manual lymphatic drainage massage, reflexology, energy therapies and helped me develop self-care activities to facilitate sustainable healthy lifestyle changes. Over the next few months I began to see improvements and in May of 2016, thanks to her treatments, input, guidance and support, my skin has never looked better and I have achieved my desire to manage my psoriasis without medication. Jeannine is a true professional who also creates a warm inviting environment that feels like you are visiting with an friend.
There is nothing about Jeannine's care and attention that would make a person want for anything else other than to continually place themselves in her hands on an ongoing basis. The gentle effectiveness and the expertise that she displays in its application is a winning combination for anyone fortunate and wise enough to choose her as their holistic health care practitioner. As if this weren't enough, I also know her to be not only passionate about her craft, but also a person who has the highest ethical and integrity standards, as well as someone who cares deeply about the health and well-being of her clientele. I would highly recommend her services to anyone seeking this type of care. With Gratitude...
Jeannine thanks so much for sharing your wonderful healing hands with me. During the second trimester of my pregnancy, I experienced discomfort and tingling sensations in my arms/hands similar to carpal tunnel symptoms. My regular massage therapist was not comfortable with prenatal massage and unwilling to treat me. Your reflexology treatment provided some much needed relief for my carpal tunnel. Then during my third trimester your foot reflexology did wonders for my lower back sciatic pain. These non-invasive treatments and your cozy treatment area were just what I needed to regain my mobility. I highly recommend you to anyone that needs some acute pain relief and relaxation. Thanks so much.
Jeannine is an incredibly gifted massage therapist, and she has the knowledge and patience to focus on problem areas. Her years of nursing perfectly compliment her holistic and compassionate practice. She has helped me with chronic pain through the use of massage, stretching and a collaborative approach with one of my doctors and my personal trainer. With her help the pain that I felt on a daily basis is gone.
Working with Jeannine has been a life changing experience for me. It is a true partnership. The plan she created has met all my needs, even the ones I didn't know I needed. I came to her first for Reflexology to assist with stress management and relaxation. I have continued to enjoy my Reflexology sessions and have since added Reiki and Healing Touch sessions for a more overall experience of well being. Through coaching, she has also helped me to start to change my eating habits and to work towards a more healthy lifestyle of eating and exercise. Her approach was simple. Rather than handing me a food plan to follow which has not worked for me, Jeannine would encourage me to make small changes each week, adding one or two new changes each week. We would discuss new options during our sessions and discussed the choices I was making. Before I knew it, I was making more healthy choices and the weight started to come off. Over the last seven weeks, I have lost over 19 pounds by making my own choices. I am empowered by my success so far and plan on continuing this journey with Jeannine who is my cheerleader, motivator and coach. Thank you, Jeannine!
