Our bodies are meant to feel great, and Jessie offers an integrative approach to unveiling her clients' innate wholeness. She draws from over ten years of yoga teaching experience and over seven years in the physical therapy field with an intense passion for continuing education.

She is an Experienced-Registered Yoga instructor certified through the ShambhavAnanda School of Yoga since 2010.
When she’s not in the clinic, Jessie can be found exploring the trails on horseback, on foot, or by snowshoe, meditating, and practicing or teaching yoga.
ABOUT FREQUENCY SPECIFIC MICROCURRENT (FSM)
Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) is a technique for treating pain using low-level (microamperage) electrical current. The current is delivered to specific body parts in an attempt to relieve pain. A frequency is the rate at which an electronic pulse is produced, measurable in hertz (Hz). In using FSM in the clinical setting, it has been indicated that various frequencies can be used to potentially reduce inflammation (swelling), repair tissue, and reduce pain. It is a non-invasive and painless treatment that may help reduce pain without drugs or surgery. Dr. Jessie was trained by Dr. Carolyn McMakin, a pioneer and leader in the field.
FSM is currently being researched and utilized at the Cleveland Clinic, at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for Wounded Warriors, at Shirley Ryan AbilityLab in Chicago, and elsewhere.
ABOUT INTEGRATIVE PHYSICAL THERAPY

ABOUT THERAPEUTIC YOGA
At your first visit, you and Jessie will explore and discuss your lifestyle, habits, beliefs, and orientation to your body in order to best cater the yoga session to your individual personality and needs.
She will then guide you through the Yoga Movement ScreenTM developed in the ShambhaVananda school of yoga and adapted from Gray Cook's FMS. This is an assessment of your functional movements via yoga asanas (postures) in order to determine what limitations your body presents with and how to best address them.
Next, Jessie will help you learn asana, pranayama, and meditation practices that address your body's limitations and develop a home practice specifically for you. She will make lifestyle recommendations and depending upon your needs, may incorporate some manual therapy techniques for optimal results.
This system works best when you schedule at least three to six sessions, preferably one week apart, so that together you and Jessie can address aspects that are challenging and progress you so you can optimize your healing journey.
