What is Transformational Bodywork Technique?

TBT incorporates the fundamentals of traditional Thai massage and structural bodywork. Bodywork is performed on a Thai floor mat with clients fully clothed. Deep muscle compression, joint mobilization, and stretching techniques do wonders for treating pain, creating more ease and flow in the body, and improving circulation. Structural bodywork focuses on releasing fascial restrictions to achieve more balance in the body. Muscle activation and trigger point therapy enhance the techniques.

Press & Client Testimonials

"In one session with JENELLE, I really felt like it was more effective than all of those modalities put together...

... honestly has been the most effective in controlling my pain level and not just temporarily, but structurally long term."

I've been dealing with some past trauma recently and I didn't notice that it had caused me to become so detached from my body. Jenelle brought my awareness back and set me on a much healthier and more sustainable path.

Jenelle noticed that my right rib cage wasn't expanding whenever I took a breath.

Since then I've been trying to be really intentional with my breath, working to make more space along my right side body and ribs. I've noticed my collarbones are so tight! They're restricted all the time. I've never even thought about my collarbones before
