Jenn Bierma is a Certified Massage Therapist who graduated with honors from the Minnesota School of Health Sciences Massage Therapy Program in 2001. After graduation, at the age of 19, she opened her own massage and wellness company. She ran that company for 19 years before deciding to close and pursue her other passions at the end of 2020. While she has a wide variety of training including Craniosacral Therapy, Myofascial Release, Swedish Massage, Prenatal Massage and Integrative Massage techniques, Jenn is known for deep tissue work and massage for individuals with disabilities. For twenty years, she has paired those specialties with her intuitive gifts. Her main focus now is Intuitive Healing Massage sessions that utilize her psychic/intuitive skills to sense dysfunction in both the energetic and physical body. This technique is a combination of energy work, massage therapy, sound therapy and intuitive channeling. In a session, she may tap into the energy of your higher self, spirit guides, angels, etheric beings, the chakra system, past lives, crystals or spirits who have crossed over to provide a relaxing and often insightful experience. The result is a session that supports balance physically, energetically and spiritually and leaves her clients (and their body) feeling understood, cared for and relaxed.
She is an author, reiki master practitioner, psychic medium and intuitive artist that creates pieces of visual and written art that speak to the divine gifts present in our daily lives. All aspects of her work, and life, from massage to artistry are centered around her connection to the spirit world. Everything she does includes messages channeled from spirit as well words of empowerment and positivity.
When Jenn is not at work, she fills her life with art supplies, writing, drum circles, sage, playful gratitude, travel, healing retreats and as many hugs as she can get. When hugs aren’t available, she substitutes smiles and laughter.
