As well, she holds multiple certificates in Reflexology, certification in Acupressure and Traditional Cupping Therapy as well as her certificate in Foundations in Anthroposophy.
Jess works from a heart centred, Anthroposophical approach to wellness in all of her work, looking at each of her clients as a whole human rather than merely addressing the presenting symptoms. Her experience at the Toronto Steiner Centre and ongoing commitment to the annual IPMT and the upcoming RMTA will continue to foster and enrich her practice and it’s core Anthroposophical implementations.
Her passion project for the past decade has been dedicated to the development of Integral Reflexology. Jess has practiced and learnt alongside masters in the art in two countries and three provinces. Dedicated to the history and benefits that can come from the practice of total body "reflex"ology, (not limiting it to feet and traditional technique)
Jess spends a great deal of time sharing and teaching when she’s not committed to her practice hours.
Jess has developed an Anthroposophically inspired “Rhythmic Reflexology” that is a safe and beneficial treatment that she implements in her clinical practice regularly and teaches to trained Reflexologists, just once a year.
DANU Wellness Co & Academy, was founded originally in 2008 on the Bruce Peninsula Ontario and moved to a brick and mortar location in downtown Guelph Ontario in 2014.
In 2019 Jess and her daughters left their hearts in Newfoundland while visiting family and vowed to return and call it home. Now with a practice in St. John’s, Jess continues to travel throughout the year to teach and lecture where she’s needed.
