Meet Jenni Young RMT, BA, LCCE
Updated: Mar 30, 2019
WHO IS JENNI YOUNG?
Jennifer knew when she was pregnant with her first child that she wanted to work with pregnant women and babies. She was already a Certified Yoga Teacher at the time and easily fell into teaching fertility, prenatal and postnatal yoga. As the same time she started attending births as a doula and became certified to teach Lamaze classes and infant massage. It was through her own RMT that she was inspired to become an RMT and continue her work with women and children.
Her passions outside of the clinic room usually involve the outdoors. In the summer time you can find her wherever there’s water paddling on her stand up paddling board. She love’s to hike, snowshoe and being outside with her dog and children.
Her primary focus is in women’s health. She has been involved in the pre and post-natal community in Ottawa for over 15 years. She has worked as a Lamaze Childbirth Educator, a Lactation educator, Certified Infant Massage Instructor, Doula (birth attendant) and Fertility and Pre-Post Natal Yoga Instructor.
Jennifer is a Registered RMT with a focus on women’s health. Most of her post RMT studies have focused on the pelvic region, children and Cranio Sacral Therapy. She brings her 15 years of teaching yoga and working with pregnant women and young families to her practice. Jennifer feels so blessed to work in a collaborative care team along with Jennifer Spak (DOMP). We work together as often as possible to provide our clients with the best possible care we can. Although our backgrounds and approaches are similar our trainings and focus is different and therefore provides our clients with a more complete treatment plan.
Jennifer never looks at her career as a job, it truly is a vocation and a labour of love. She loves helping women prepare for the new phase in their lives and adjusting to each change. When working in pediatrics she is honoured that children and their parents trust her with something as delicate as their human body. She looks forward to the positive changes that can happen through treatment and post treatment suggestions that are offered. She loves to share the joy when a woman has reduced pain, improved breastfeeding, has a physical adjustment or when a child has improvement with sleep, digestion or stress reduction.
