“Jen Wren… an amazing practitioner and healer, a witch. Her knowledge and insight is so detailed that your own understanding of the body and personal injury becomes really clear. There is no dead end or nothing to be done! She quickly identifies the issue, corrects and advises in an astonishing manner. Jen is always learning which means I am too – each time I see her, she has some other tool in her kit, allowing us to identify and correct, fine tune the function and ability of my dancers body. Sessions with Jen are unique, individual and effective. Positivity streams out of her and passion, expertise and skill, care and generosity is what makes Jen amazing.” – Keira Martin, International Dancer/Choreographer
