Jennifer R. Bull, LMT
Jennifer R. Bull, LMT has been in the field of Massage since 1999 and is passionate about troubleshooting complex cases which have shown little progress with other modalities or Practitioners. Working in conjunction with multiple disciplines of medicine throughout her career provide a large knowledge and referral base to draw from when formulating plans of care. Jennifer's multidimensional approach to the body shows in her treatment techniques by the various modalities she may utilize during a session. Craniosacral Therapy, Intraoral Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular Re-Education, Cupping Therapy, Guasha, Ashiatsu, and KinesioTaping are a sampling of techniques she is proficient in, although at this time Jen has limited her practice to Intraoral and Craniosacral Clients only.
Anatomy has always interested Jennifer and at an early age she developed a deep fascination of the body and anatomy in particular. Originally planning on pursing a career in Forensic Pathology, however, upon graduation from High School Jen decided to take a year off from her undergraduate college education to obtain her Massage Therapy License, hoping to use her certification to financially support her through years of future education. Once licensed as an LMT, she immediately excelled and found deep reward in her career choice, thus, putting off further studies to become more rooted in the manual therapy field.
After working for 9 years as an employee at a few Chiropractic offices, Jennifer opened the doors of her solo practice, Unlocking The Body Massage Therapy in April of 2008 in search of further personal freedom and the ability to make more of an impact as a small business owner, adding another dimension of satisfaction derived from Massage Therapy. Web design, marketing, employing others, community service, mentorship and teaching continuing education classes are all things that keep Jen’s passion ignited to keep progressing in her craft.
In 2010, Jennifer became ill and discovered, after a long period of suffering and discoraging Specialists visits was diagnosed with an inflammatory autoimmune thyroid condition. Having a major health issue and being unable to work for almost 6 months led her to seek uncommon alternative modalities when Doctors initially said nothing was wrong. Being very skeptical of light touch modalities and coming from a background of deep manual therapy, Jennifer hesitantly accepted an offer from Silke Miller, LMT to receive a Craniosacral Therapy session see if there was benefit. The session offered instantaneous relief when nothing else seemed to by calming and balancing her system. After her surgery and rehab, Jennifer decided to start the process of becoming a Craniosacral Therapist through Upledger's training to further understand why the therapy made such a measurable difference.
Craniosacral Therapy has evolved Jennifer’s approach in her practice as well has her life outside of work in many ways. In the coming year Jennifer plans on deepening her specificity in the Craniosacral field by taking more classes on glial cells, immune, and chronic depletion. Fresh tissue dissection is a source of deep understanding and profound reflection in her life and intermittently TA's in classes at an Osteopathic College in Oregon through Upledger.
On a more personal note, Jennifer married her husband Lincoln in 2009 and has two teenage sons, Owen and Xavier. She is an avid dog and animal lover, OJ, Willis, and Lucas are the names of her fur babies and as she ages, believes she likes dogs more than people and is secretly concerned she is slowly becoming the middle aged stereotypical crazy dog lady. In the small amount of free time Jennifer has she enjoys traveling to historic sites with her family, heading to a friends cabin in Aspen, exploring new warm areas for travel, planning new tattoos, and binging on chocolate in bed.
