At Function, we believe that massage therapy is an essential part of any health and wellness program! Massage can be use as a rehabilitative modality, recovery technique or even simply as a nervous system regulator. Ask us how to incorporate treatments into your health program!
Jena has been a Registered Massage Therapist and practicing Strength and Conditioning Coach since 2010. Her foundational values for rehabilitation stem from the Model of Regional Interdependence – “a concept that seemingly unrelated impairments in a remote anatomical region may contribute to, or be associated with, the patient’s primary complaint”. Integrating movement education with manual therapy, Jena enjoys creatively problem solving dysfunctions which limit performance in sport and activity.
While attending university, Jena worked for 3 years as the Athletic Trainer for the UBC Women’s Ice Hockey team, where she realized her passion for manual therapy and high level sports conditioning. Since then, Jena has worked with Provincial Figure Skaters, National Women’s Soccer team, NHL players, and Senior PGA golfers.
Jena earned a Bachelors Degree in Human Kinetics (Exercise Science stream) from the University of British Columbia in 2008, and continued on to complete a Diploma of Massage Therapy from the West Coast Collage of Massage Therapy in 2010. After graduation, Jena was licensed by the College of Massage Therapy of British Columbia (CMTBC) as a Registered Massage Therapist, and certified by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. Jena places high value in continuing education and learning the subtleties of the human body and its mechanics. She has industriously attended courses for manual therapy, anatomy/physiology and strength conditioning. Currently, Jena is studying Osteopathy at the Canadian School of Osteopathy Manual Practice.
