Create a Peaceful


Hello. I’m Jenny Winkel.

Massage Therapy

I graduated from Myotherapy College of Utah in May of 2010 to become a licensed massage therapist. I am certified in Thai Yoga massage, lymphatic drainage, deep tissue, Swedish style, hot stone massage, and craniosacral therapy. Many of my clients come to see me for the quality and presence of my touch. I have experience in providing pain relief and injury rehabilitation from acute as well as chronic musculoskeletal issues, keeping the body as a whole in mind.

Somatic Support

In August of 2014 I received my master’s degree in somatic depth psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, California. Somatic depth psychology concerns itself with the way unconscious content—dreams, troubling physical symptoms, heartbreak, and/or various kinds of trauma—manifests in the physical body. My approach to somatic work is based on a profound respect for each individual’s unique and personal process and does not seek to fit the client into a particular philosophical or clinical template. Instead, I implement deep listening skills to attune to the client’s experience and create a grounded and peaceful environment where their process can safely unfold.

In September of 2017 I completed a three year training program to become a Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner (SEP). Developed by Dr. Peter Levine, Somatic Experiencing® is an internationally recognized body-based approach to enhance regulation in the nervous system.

Following the SE training I certified in the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM), an advanced relational approach that addresses the effects of attachment, relational and developmental trauma. NARM is the work of Dr. Lawrence Heller that implements embodied and mindfulness-based approaches to challenge outdated identifications that create obstacles in relationship to one’s self and others.

My professional title in this context is “somatic practitioner”. I am not a licensed mental health care professional.
