Dance When you're broken open.
Dance if you've torn the bandage off..
Dance in the middle of the fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance when you're perfectly free.
a little about me...
"Jenn’s presence allows me to access a realm of deep healing, where all aspects of the self are honored. She is a deeply committed practitioner with great courage and obvious love of Life."
Sarah Gardon, Sebastopol CA
Since I was a child I felt Intrigued and curious about the experience of others and life itself. I loved to listen and inquire with my with my whole heart, hearing what was being shared beyond words and learning in to what was unspoken. I did not put a name or context to what I was experiencing since it felt so natural to me. This joy continued to guide my choices and express in a variety of activities throughout my youth and adult life. It was not until much later in life that i put a name to my experience as deep listening and was able to recognize the benefits it had to offer.
My own healing journey began in 2007 when I survived an aircraft accident in Alaska which changed the course of my life. I awoke in a hospital with many broken bones, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, a Traumatic Brain Injury and a variety of other injuries and challenges. I was fortunate to have a tremendous amount of support, which in my opinion, makes a world of difference in the ease and outcome of ones healing process. We can not do it alone nor are we actually ever alone. Opening up to others, asking for support, and receiving the healing gifts of others proved to be one of the most challenging growth opportunities I encountered on my healing journey. Surprisingly though it produced the most reward.
I was determined to find my way back to health, sanity and joy. It required a lot of permission, reflection, love and support on many levels. It was through this healing journey that I discovered and personally benefited from craniosacral therapy and meditation. These two practices provided a context for the importance of slowing down, listening and tuning into energy expressions. They were an integral part of healing from a Traumatic Brain Injury and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder along with a host of mysterious injuries where weakened patterns were set in my body.
I have experienced many different traditional and holistic modalities to arrive where I am today. Although I cannot claim to have found any one modality that heals all, Craniosacral therapy was an essential and consistent support to healing my whole being. It helped me to access states of rest, and stillness that were hard to access or otherwise unavailable with my sped up compensated nervous system. For brain injuries and trauma recovery this is so important. Other resources that have carried me are a variety of somatic & psychological based therapies, water aerobics, meditation, singing, dancing, and building supportive community.
Becoming a Craniosacral therapist offered me an avenue that would continue to support my healing, my relationship to myself and others, and would support myself financially. It was a training in a way of being. A practice that relieves stress and brings one back to a state of health and balance. I feel honored and humbled to be able to offer this work to others. One that continues to benefit me greatly and thus ripples out to everyone in my life.

"I first met Jennifer at a 7-day retreat in 2012 near Ashland OR. We sat next to each other and became fast friends. Before long, I found myself in a lot of pain from my travels which unfortunately took up most of my consciousness-it was hard to sleep and I was an emotional mess. Jenn offered to help with the use of CST. Her work really helped to ease the tension in my spine and release damned-up emotions. The result was that I was able to relax and sleep after the treatment. Years later in 2017 we were talking on the phone and I reported a very sore hip stemming from a recent surgery. She offered a therapy session over the phone. I had no idea such a thing could be done long distance (3,000 mi), but I was willing to try! It worked-the pain disappeared!!! I was totally amazed at her abilities which don’t stop there… Jenn has a capacity of deep listening and gently guiding others to look at possibilities which pour out of her like honey. She is patient and generous with her offerings to help and support people. I remember a hand full years ago walking into a Whole Foods store with Jennifer. We met several people shopping and many who were working in the store that day. Jenn was just doing what comes natural to her in communication. I can tell you that everybody and I mean everybody who came in contact with her was totally taken by her engaging & positive spirit. I just watched person after person become uplifted in the exchange. I will never forget it. Regarding Jenifer Foltz, there is a lot to be received & exchanged whether you are a client, friend, or both She has more in her toolbox than I mention here! Find out for yourself......"
