I started working with Jennifer a little over 2 years ago because
of a recommendation from my chiropractor. I have 3 swollen disks
in my lower back and 2 vertebrae in stage II fusion in my neck.
After two visits in one week with Jennifer, I was hooked. She
worked closely with my chiropractor to come up with a treatment
plan to relieve my back from pain. Jennifer seems to have a way
of understanding my body. I can tell her what exactly I'm feeling
that week or that month, and she will understand what needs to
be worked on to get other parts to feel better. It is common
for me to sleep better after a session, have my back "adjust
itself" after a session, and concentrate better because
I'm not focused on the pain that I would normally feel. I
live in Bonney Lake, WA and have always worked in Seattle. Now
I work in Tacoma and I still travel the 35 miles to see Jennifer
at her current location. I have recommended Jennifer to friends,
co-workers and also some clients.

I started working with Jennifer because of the stress in my
everyday life. It had gotten so bad that it was affecting my
health. I tend to carry stress in my neck and back as many people
do. It was so severe that it was giving me extreme headaches,
which in turn were literally causing me to feel sick to my stomach
most days. I had been feeling this way for over a month and I
just couldn’t take it anymore!! Nothing I tried was working.
I needed to get my life back so I broke down and went to my doctor. He
recommended getting a massage. Well you don’t have to tell
me twice, so that is precisely what I did.
Jennifer was referred to me by a friend, so I gave her a call.
To my surprise, she was able to see me that same week. After
just one session with Jennifer, I felt soooooo much better! I
was even able to go out for an afternoon of lunch and shopping
with my daughter the same day. I cannot tell you how glad my
family was to “have me back”.
I have had a total of 3 sessions with Jennifer now and I am
happy to report that I am back to my full functioning self. I
look forward to my sessions with Jennifer because being a mother,
wife and business owner, the time I spend with her is one whole
hour without interruption. She
makes sure that it is an entire hour of just “me” time.
Thank-you Jennifer! You truly are “just what the doctor

I’m impressed with Jen’s ability to intuitively
know what areas of my body need treatment. She is focused on
healing injury and relieving pain to keep me active and enjoying
the sports I participate in. I’m grateful that she is a
huge part of my professional wellness team.

As a landscape contractor, I do a lot of lifting, twisting and
bending, which tightens the muscles in my back and neck into
knots. It's hard for me to get motivated to work when I
don't feel my best. Every time Jen works on me, my productivity
increases and my attitude towards mornings improves greatly. I
always leave her office feeling six inches taller than when I

I have episodic low back pain that stems from a chronic psoas
condition. Since my first session with Jennifer 3 months
ago, I have been without that familiar low back pain. I
noticed right away that her knowledge of the anatomy and biomechanics
of the hip girdle set her apart from her peers. She was
able to access, isolate and change my psoas muscle without causing
discomfort that sometimes accompanies deep tissue work.

Jen is an amazing massage therapist! I suffer from arthritis
and fibromyalgia. I have so much less pain and much more
movement because of her massage work. I require a very
gentle massage and Jen is the first massage therapist that understands
that. Thank you for your professionalism and fantastic

Finally! That was my thought after my first visit with
Jennifer Giuntini, of ’a vie massage for massage therapy.
Finally, some relief from the chronic pain in by neck and shoulder
caused from a car accident over ten years prior.
I had tried many different things to relieve the pain, to no
avail. So, I just learned to deal with it. My daughter
was in an accident in 2008 and went to Jennifer for her back
issues and felt that she could help me as well.
Deep breath and fingers crossed, I made an appointment. When
I got home, I realized there was NO PAIN for TWO hours! I
thought I had died and gone to heaven! I called my daughter
and said I had forgotten how “no pain” felt.
With that positive first experience, I’ve continued on
with the massage therapy. At first, once every week or
every other week. Now,
about every third week. Jennifer has been able to keep
the muscles from getting too tight and stiff. The amazing
thing about my therapy is that I don’t have “the
carry with me on a daily basis. For that, I am extremely

Jennifer provides a very intuitive massage. She knows
exactly what areas need work and how much pressure to use so
it’s effective but not painful. After only
one massage session, my upper back pain was significantly reduced
and the benefits have lasted weeks. It was one of the best
massages I have ever had. I highly recommend her for a
relaxing yet therapeutic experience.
