Jennifer Swift is a Denver native and a Minneapolis re-transplant. She graduated in 2009 from Northwestern Health Sciences University (www.nwhealth.edu) in Bloomington, MN. At Northwestern she studied Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy, Pre and Post-natal recovery, Reflexology, Hospital Massage and Sports Massage.

Jennifer started Massage Essential LLC, a Minneapolis based massage clinic, in January 2010 and served her community for over four years as owner and senior practitioner before heeding a call to relocate to Denver in the summer of 2014. She believes in community, networking, sincere communication and intentional change. Jennifer is known for the specificity of her massage and ability to access deeper tissues in order to facilitate balance in the body. She is generally able to facilitate necessary change in the soft tissue that, when coupled with functional and intentional changes on the part of the client, can lead to the resolution of many different types of injuries.
I am experienced at working the many types of pain syndromes, including, but not limited to, TMJ-like symptoms, headaches, shoulder issues, knee pain, low back/lumber pain, wrist and carpal tunnel dysfunction-like symptoms, pain and imbalance associated with pregnancy, and, of course, the professional’s best friend: upper back and neck pain. Jennifer has worked with professional athletes, ultimate Frisbee players, horsemen and women, marathon runners, recreational runners, professional cheerleaders, expectant and recovering mothers and fathers, rugby players, chiropractors, doctors, the elderly, children and housewives and househusbands.
Jennifer is an active volunteer in her community belonging to such organizations as WWOOF -World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (www.wwoof.org) and participating as a volunteer in summer literacy programs for youth and centers for battered women and children. She has traveled cross country in her involvement with WWOOF and values sustainable and organic living. She believes in action and conscious living. Jennifer is a singer, a thespian, an avid bike commuter, an animal lover and a believer in personal improvement and social involvement.
Jennifer lives in Denver with her two dogs and loves being active, flexible and strong. She enjoys breathing the beautiful mountain air and taking time to clear her mind and ground herself.
