My name is Jennifer Garcia (Bodkin), RMT, and I would like to introduce myself as your new health care provider and Registered Massage Therapist. As a graduate from Vancouver Massage Therapy School (formerly Utopia Academy), a B.C. accredited school of Massage Therapy in 2009; I have over 3000 hours of training and education, and am pleased to offer you my services. With one on one care, you’ll receive great benefits like a personalized treatment to fit your health care needs, an increased sense of well-being and self awareness, and relief from those everyday stresses.
In my practice I currently use a variety of therapeutic techniques mixed with soothing Swedish relaxation or Vagus Nerve stimulation in most treatments. It is my thought and experience that many patients find this combination the most beneficial to healing. Not only does it provide a focus to the areas of concern, using techniques specific to addressing your complaints, it also provides your body and tissue with a way to rest and adjust to the changes that are taking place. As a society that usually lives in overdrive, our sympathetic nervous systems (fight or flight) rarely give way to our parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest), a system which is key to staying healthy. So by helping guide your body’s tissue in the right direction, and allowing the “rest and digest” to come forth, it is my goal to help bring some equilibrium back into your life.
