Healing Stars Here
Traditional Reproductive Healing
WombCare is all about reclaiming connection and caring for your own womb space and body.
It is a practical and experiential journey to help you heal yourself physically and emotionally.
We start with a guided visualization to connect you to your uterus & pelvic area—hands-on Treatment and information on reproductive health, diet and lifestyle.
You will learn how to do womb wrapping, castor oil packs, yoni steaming, and an easy self-massage – your health is in your hands.
Once aligning the pelvis, in particular, the organs can receive clean and healthy blood to the area, including the decongestion of stagnant fluids that may have accumulated from displacement or inflammation of organs, this wondrous part of our body has much higher chances of health, vitality and fertility.
Traditional Manual Therapy
The teachings in many areas influence my bodywork and herbal medicine. Arvigo® Abdominal Therapy is a profoundly effective blend of ancient and modern therapeutic modalities promoting balance physically and energetically. Dedicated healthcare through education and personal care. Through creating a whole-body approach to wellness, inclusive of all.
Mizan (pronounced like Milan) is an Arabic word that means balance. Using traditional reproductive healing techniques, Mizan Therapists seek to restore balance when life feels unbalanced – physically, emotionally or spiritually.
My work is also influenced by osteopathy, craniosacral, myofascial release, and structural integration training. Teachings that influence my work: Gil Headly, Tom Myers, Dr. Aviva Romm, Dr. Rosita Arvigo, Rachelle Garcia Seliga, Beaudoin Bodywork, Tami Lynn Kent, Liz Koch, Jane Hardwicke Collings, Lynn Schulte, Samar Ciprian & more.

"Viscera" relates to the internal organs of the body, such as the liver, kidneys and intestines. Visceral Manipulation is a gentle manual therapy that aids your body's ability to release restrictions and unhealthy compensations that cause pain and dysfunction. Visceral Manipulation, or VM, does not focus solely on the site of pain or dysfunction, but evaluates the entire body to find the source of the problem. Jenel feels for altered or decreased motion within the viscera, as well as restrictive patterns throughout the body and then applies VM techniques. Jenel helps to re-establishes the body's ability to adapt and restore itself to health.
Balance the pelvic bowl, the organs and the 5 flows of lymph, arteries, veins, nerves, & energy.
Ideal for any time in your life & women of all ages are thought to benefit from such work. When we experience sudden whiplash, jerking or repeated bouncing (such as from long-distance running), the uterus can swing dramatically and become lodged in a sideways or tilted position.
This can contribute to reproductive complications including PMS.
Endometriosis and other menstrual cycle challenges can be met with a gentle healing approach to the entire body.
Learn the ebbs and flows of your cycle. Take power into your own hands.
The most common symptoms of muscle cramping at the time of the menstrual cycle that sometimes won't even go away with NSAIDS (Motrin, ibuprofen, that kind of stuff), periods from hell (long. heavy), often with chronic and sometimes severe pain between periods, constipation and bloating, painful sex, urinary problems, low backache, and chronic fatigue.
Some women also report abnormal vaginal bleeding.
This treatment is for you!
Period difficulties typically progress and worsen over time as chronic inflammation accumulates scar tissue, causing "adhesions" that cause the organs like the intestines and bladder to become fixed in place, leading to frequent or even pain with bowel movements and urination, and painful sex.
Peri-menopause & Beyond
Peri-menopause, menopause and beyond—by relieving pelvic congestion, increasing circulation, improving digestion, aiding in the absorption of nutrients and calming the central nervous system. Maintain the strength and integrity of the pelvis against the prolapse of organs later in life.
During peri-menopause, treatment helps balance the hormones and encourages a thorough cleansing of the uterus of any residual toxins. It is important for our wombs to be cleaned out at this time, as though menopause our wombs shrink to an almost pre-pubescent size. A wise woman once told me
“A post-menopausal uterus is like a Diamond in the rock,” it is much smaller in size, but the power and wisdom has been optimized.
Treatments during this time help connect a woman to the wisdom of peri-menopause and menopause, as well as her innate, queenly wisdom of this stage of life.
