Reiki for the body and soul – I've been seeing Jennifer Brinn regularly for Reiki massage for over a year now. During that time I have noticed some real improvements in my physical health and positive changes in the mental/spiritual/social side of my life. I consider myself to be a science-oriented person for the most part. But Reiki with Jennifer has given me personal experiences that make me believe scientists should investigate the whole Reiki/healing energy phenomenon more closely. I went for one session at my wife's insistence and I felt great afterwards - better than I had in years. And this good feeling has accumulated with each additional session. If you are trying to make long-term life adjustments, Jennifer has a subtle way of energizing your physical and spiritual transformation if you see her on a regular basis. Reiki with Jennifer has been one of the most positive experiences of my life so far.
floating on air! – Wow!
I had a Reiki treatment with Jennifer over the weekend and just coming back down to earth. I've never had Reiki before and tried on a friend's recommendation. It was the most transcending experience and also incredibly relaxing. I think it took me almost 10 minutes just to get up off the table.
Jennifer is a beautiful practitioner in every way! She took the time to find out what my issues were and offered advice and referrals about other types of wellness I could do on my own. Her care and interest in her work is genuine. Her treatment room is magically filled with good energy that invites you to exhale the moment you cross the threshold. There is also a subtle fragrance in the air which she says is a combo of rosewater and sage--whatever it is, I want it for my home!
I'm already looking forward to my next session.
what a beautiful treat! – My daughter recently surprised me with a gift certificate for a 2hour 'sanctuary to go' an in home session with Jennifer. She brought everything including a thermos of her special tea. While she set up in the other room, I sat and relaxed with a cup of tea. When I entered the room, it was transformed into a tranquil setting with candles and soothing music--a one hour massage and one hour of reiki was the most luxurious thing I've done in a long time. Jennifer's peaceful energy, knowledge and gentle compassion for my arthritic joints made for a wonderful experience. After the session, she exited quietly allowing me to enjoy the lingering tranquility of the setting she created. It was the perfect way to spend a rainy morning!
Energy worker extraordinaire – Jennifer's treatments are a great mix of integrity, sincerity and ability. Although I don't know her well, she strikes me as being the type of practicioner that lives her practice.
Her true desire to help others shines through. A healing aspect of receiving treatment from her is absorbing the love that she gives through her work. In addition, she definitly puts the "treat" in treatment. Her space is beautiful--she has created an abode of tranquility that allows for full relaxation. The tea is delicious too.
During the check-in prior to treatment I found her to be fully present and a wonderful listener.
During the treatment itself I felt as if I had been transported to another world--the experience was like getting lost--or maybe I should call it finding the real present--one without thoughts of this or that running through my mind. I entered a deeply relaxing and lucid space. The experience was meditative and transformational.
One of the reasons for getting a treatment was to help me process, on both a physical and an emotional level, a challenging situation I had recently gone through. After the the treatment I felt lighter and definitly thankful that I had gone.
I recommend Jennifer Brinn without reserve.
exceptional healing work – Jennifer has a beautiful, warm presence and a powerful touch. I have found her Reiki sessions to be deeply healing, and her caring nature adds a profound dimension of well-being and nurturing to her work. Her approach is intuitive, skilled, spiritual and highly aware. I would strongly recommend her to anyone needing healing, peace, health and joy. She is a gift to her clients and she offers wisdom, insight and compassion to anyone who enters her lovely space.
she's better than the best massage you've had – You know how there are just some people you naturally relax around? Well that's Jennifer Brinn. You can't help but to just let go of all your stress -and that's before the massage starts! Whatever you thought was so important only moments ago - suddenly just melt away. It all starts from the moment she opens the door, your senses immediately become reoriented from the stress and the hustle of the city to one of encouraging letting go. She does this by bringing you some tea, having you sit for a moment in the space with wafts of aromatherapy still lingering in the air. All of this forethought into the atmosphere is done with careful consideration to the needs of each person and where they are that day - what they are needing in that moment.
And if warm tea, aromatherapy and soft music isn't really your thing - there's no denying that the massage will win you over. I've been receiving massage from Jennifer for almost 2 years since my spinal surgery - and at every step of the way, as my massage needs change - she's been able to tune into what i need and really deliver results... often without me ever saying a word. She just knows the body- how to read and feel the lines of tension, patterns of holding, without ever needing to mash the muscle tissue. As a matter of fact - I always thought to effectively get good leg work done on the lower torso that some pain just came with the territory - until she worked with the tight muscles in such a way that didn't cause pain - but they did feel more relaxed.
Overall, what makes Jennifer's work unique is her ability and committment to being fully present on behalf of the client. I've received a lot of bodywork over the years, and I believe that what makes one bodyworker more effective than another - is the ability to tune out the noise of the world and tune into the person on the table. Jennifer does this time and again with remarkable grace, fluidity, and a deeply grounded, peaceful presence.
Great experience – Just had a Balancer--amazing! it's the perfect blend. Has the utmost integrity and really does everything to make you comfortable. Her studio is soothing along with her work. I felt indulgent in booking a 90min appointment, but compared to spa prices, she is a great deal!
Need this like air!! – Jennifer is incredibly skilled and intutitive at what she does. I've been to see her twice so far and each time feel like I shed a layer of tension which lasts for almost a week! It's not just the work but the entire experience--parking can be difficult at the 22nd St location, but once inside, I just exhale, sip some tea and begin to unwind before I'm even on the table.
Jennifer's manner is very soothing and she takes the time to listen to what your issues are and find solutions with the work she does. As a runner and triathlete--I need this like air!

more than pampering! – I recently had a 'Balancer' session with Jennifer. An hour and a half of pure bliss! I haven't had a massage in almost a year and found Jennifer on citysearch. I was stressed emotionally and physically and she recommended a massage/reiki combo. I just had a half hour massage over back, neck and shoulders and---WOW it felt like an hour, then she did an hour of Reiki on me which completely balanced me out. Afterwards, I was greeted with an Indian Basil tea and she spent a few minutes talking with me about the session.
I felt more than pampered, I felt held and cared for--truly rejeuvenated. I will be seeing her for regular visits---her rates are a steal for what you receive. She's like spa massage, energy healer and therapist all in one!
