Saskatoon's Arvigo® + Integrative Women's Bodywork
Elemental Wellness Practioner
Jenel has spent her entire life developing, deepening and sharpening the skillset of her medicine bag. She is intuitively weaving elemental medicines, bodywork, pelvic care, true wellness in women's beings and healing the wild feminine.
In her work as a women's health practitioner, Jenel uses body-oriented therapies with deep soul inquiry – holding space for her clients to cultivate an expanding landscape of self-awareness that supports both inner and outer life to thrive.
Jenel's decade of wisdom is felt through a range of offerings, including 1:1 sessions and facilitating group work and retreats focused on women's total capacity for life. She is an innovator interested in understanding female energies and tissues, teaching body literacy, consent principles, and self-led healing.
Over time, Jenel has cultivated a deep literacy and knowledge in her own body and mind. Operating from this place of self-wisdom, she shares a fierce and gentle healing tonic of presence and safety, of being seen, heard, known, nurtured and welcomed home.

Integrative Pelvic Care At the core of our bodies, the pelvic bowl carries our weight – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and ultimately the weight of our dreams and unrealised gifts to the world. Integrative Pelvic Care is a gentle form of hands-on; hands-in pelvic bodywork and full body myofascial release, craniosacral and lymphatic work. It addresses the physical aspects of pelvic floor imbalance and brings a deeper understanding of health and balance within and around the womb, which functions as our energetic and emotional receptive core. Restoring balance to the pelvis and womb brings shifts in physiology such as hormones, blood and lymph flow as well as energetically by through changes in feelings and emotions. This technique has to ability to bring our whole being into alignment, empowering women to inhabit their body fully, including spirit and soul. Physically, it involves evaluation by internal intravaginal and external pelvic palpation, muscular contraction, release and mapping of the pelvic floor muscles. Using trigger point and myofascial release work Jenel, addresses pelvic dysfunction, including prolapse, pain, imbalance and congestion.

Postpartum Cermonial Bodywork Jenel is a custodian of the ‘Closing The Bones’ process - a tradition she learned from postpartum training and within her own Slavic traditions. A cross-cultural ceremony is performed postnatally or to mark the reaching of a milestone or major time of life transition, such as menopause or the end of a creative project. During pregnancy, a mothers hips and pelvis widen to make room for her baby and to prepare both for birth. This is a time when she is physically, emotionally and spiritually open. Gentle, warming massage with the use of woven shawls – called Rebozo – helps to loosen the lower vertebrae and shift the hips, releasing tension, stagnant energy and increasing blood flow. Light, rhythmic and therapeutic pressure on the abdomen and pelvis mobilises the bones back into primordial position, stimulating and shrinking the womb and bladder. Increased blood circulation cleanses, renews and moves fluids and tissue, stimulating the immune system. The intentional space-holding and physical process of closing the bones through massage, wrapping, rocking, cocooning and loving care creates safety and security for a woman to reclaim and call her self, energy and life-force back home. Use of warmth is added to treatment via Moxa or heating pad.
