Jennah Davis, LMT
Jennah was blessed to have a knowledgeable professor who was also a Chiropractor. Learning the best of both worlds, her in-depth training included deep tissue, craniosacral therapy, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, aromatherapy, hot stone therapy, ashiatsu, and pregnancy massage. She plans to continue her education in reflexology and manual lymph drainage.
Initially attending college for physical therapy assisting, Jennah didn’t transfer to the massage therapy program until she asked a physical therapist what secondary degree they would want their PTA’s to have. The answer: massage therapy. She didn’t realize that she had spent much of her life giving massages to fellow athletes in high school before events and family members to relax until after she began classes. She was a natural and intuitive in listening to soft tissue response.
