Transformational Bodywork

Our bodies store stress, emotional tension, and trauma

Where do you feel it?

It shows up in all sorts of ways:

  • Chronic pain
  • Reoccurring injuries
  • Constant tension
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Difficulty taking a full, deep breath
  • Belly discomfort or tightness
  • Unexplained muscle tightness
  • Jaw tension or clenching your teeth
  • Decreased mobility
  • And so much more



Here's the good news:

Pain and discomfort are NOT inevitable. There IS a better way to live.

All you need is a commitment to transformation.

But HOW?

The keys to transformation:

  • Reconnecting with your body
  • Restoring balance
  • Releasing what is stuck
  • Creating healing self-care habits

Transformation is possible.

Commiting to your healing is the first step. I can show you how.

Healing is possible.

The good news is that a holistic approach to bodywork is incredibly effective at releasing what our bodies don't need.

What is Transformational Bodywork?

A holistic approach to bodywork focused on creating substantial and sustainable change in your body.

  • No pain! Ditch the pokiness and discomfort of deep tissue - Bodywork should NOT hurt
  • Get off the table - Massage is performed on a thick mat on the floor. This gives it a solid, rooted quality to it and gives a lot more room to move around.
  • No lotions or oils - this allows for more focus on the fascia and allows for movement
  • Clothed - you wear comfy clothes that will allow for movement and lengthening of muscles
The result is a powerful experience that also feels subtle because I work with your body, rather than against it


What to Expect

Transformational Bodywork is a custom-tailored 9-week program focused on:

  • Reconnecting with your body
  • Restoring balance
  • Releasing what is stuck
  • Creating healing self-care habits


  • 9 weekly 90-minute bodywork sessions
  • Dive deep through journal prompts and video support
  • Option to book single sessions with Jenelle (currently only available to past and present Transformational Bodywork clients)

Jenelle is a powerful human being with a natural healing abilityI left feeling peaceful and with a new sense of joy that unfolded through the days after.

Snow B, Portland, OR

I came to Jenelle when I was having a tension headache from my shoulders- it was painful! She really helped my body relax, ease most of the tension, which helped it not turning into a migraine.

Her work was so nurturing to my body to be cared for with physical total body touch in a safe and neutral way. I felt so relaxed, peaceful and nourished.

When you are healing someone, I believe part of your ability to heal comes from your level of caring and compassion for humans. 

Jenelle FEELS and absorbs energy at an incredible level, and I believe she has the ability to process that energy and transfer it back into a healing touch.

Jenelle brought my awareness back and set me on a much healthier and more sustainable path. I can honestly say no massage has ever done so much for me.

Amee, Portland

Jenelle is a gentle, sweet soul who packs a powerful punch when it comes to bodywork!!! Her infusion of Thai massage and bodywork techniques worked parts of my body that had never been touched by a bodyworker before.

It was relaxing, mildly painful and soothing all at the same time. I had a lot of pent up stress and emotions and the release that occurred during my massage with her was unlike any other I had ever experienced!

Thank you Jenelle and I highly recommend her to everyone!!!
