About Jennifer J O'Flaherty

I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist in practice since 1994. I have been a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner since 2015. I am certified in Perinatal Massage Therapy and practice multiple bodywork modalities including trigger point, deep tissue, myofascial release and Shiatsu.

I have been fortunate to use massage therapy as an integral part of my clients’ management programs toward regaining healthy and whole function. I have worked closely in long and short-term treatment with people managing physical and shock traumas, chronic and syndromal illness, compromised spinal function and joint and bone replacements. More than twenty years of bodywork experience has gained me the sensitivity and skills to effectively help people realize less pain and emotional and mental strain arising from these conditions. As well, my work has aided in my clients’ general stress reduction and health promoting goals.

I now offer Somatic Experiencing and Somatic Experiencing Touch Skills, as taught by Kathy Kain, to enhance the management and treatment programs for my clients. With sensitive attunement to the complex layering of experience and stress physiology as these impact a person’s vitality and health, as well as attuning very closely to clients' reports and aims for with this work, I strive to facilitate and promote peoples’ recovery and rehabilitation goals, with the profoundly restorative tools that Somatic Experiencing provides.

Additionally, I have nearly completed the Level I training of Internal Family Systems, which also complements SE and SE Touch Therapy.
