Massage Therapist

Welcome to Body Zentegration.  Body Zentegration is a bodywork and therapeutic massage practice that focuses not only on the body, but holistic wellness as well. Gwenn Jean-Francois, a nationally certified and licensed Massage Therapist , is the proprietor of Body Zentegration. In addition to her massage therapy practice, she is also well versed in energy healing and holistic nutrition.

 

The everyday wear and tear of living can be felt in pain, discomfort and dis-ease. Sports related injuries, physical trauma, life stress, and even normal routines such as desk jobs are taxing on the body. Bodywork and therapeutic massage help the body to open up, relax, release, and allow the natural energies to begin properly flow. This gentle act of touch will get the human body back to its homeopathic state where toxins are released, stressors are addressed, and balance has been restored.

 

Body Zentegration’s goal of whole body wellness is also achieved through the power of holistic nutrition. “You are what you eat,” is more than just a familiar saying.  Acknowledging that food is the fuel consumed for the amazingly designed human body brings this concept into a clearer focus. With attention to detail about human physiology and body chemistry, Holistic Nutrition will get the human body exactly what it needs to grow and thrive.

 

Body Zentegration has a mission. This mission is to help the body help itself. The human body is an amazing feat of biological, spiritual and emotional artistry. The healing tools of massage therapy and bodywork being practiced by an intuitive and skilled healer help each client relax, restore and heal.

“He who takes medicine and neglects to diet wastes the skill of his doctors.” Chinese Proverb.

About Gwenn Jean-Francois

I have been a licensed massage therapist for 8 years. I graduated from the Midwest Institute of Natural Healing and am a nationally certified licensed massage therapist. I completed the Massage Therapy program (634hours) which included studies in Thai massage, PNF and sports massage, Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, Hawaii Lomi Lomi, and Hot Stone massage. I also completed the Body Somatic Program (784 hours) which is structural bodywork that integrates mind, body, and emotions held in the connective tissue. The release of fascia allows the body to release tension and restrictions and lets the body regain balance and motion. I also completed the Holistic Nutrition Program (291 hours) which focus on whole living and whole foods.  I am certified Reiki II, Raindrop Therapy, and Chakra Balancing.  I continued my education with extensive studies (180 hours) with theJohn Barnes myofascial release (MFR) technique. I integrate a combination of techniques to help balance body, mind, and spirit which help a person’s body to open up and heal.  I have a strong passion in my work, and I believe that our dis-ease and pain is speaking to us. I think of our bodies as our temple and bodywork is an important piece in our wellness wheel. When we keep our body open and are aware of what is heavy in our life, we can participate in keeping our life thriving and limitless.

Understanding Body Zentegration

Zentegration is a new word to introduce a concept that unites all humanity. The word combines Zen and Integration. I like to think of integration as a melding, there are no definitive boundaries of beginning or end and Zen is a peaceful, loving way.  Now imagine applying that to ourselves. Zentegration is about being conscious of ourselves in a loving way. We are an integration of our mind, body, and spirit.  We experience it every day- all day. Now sometimes we do things to ignore exactly how we are feeling, however we cannot escape, we live what we are feeling and thinking everyday- whether we like it or not.

 

Now that is not a doom and gloom scenario, this is an opportunity to be conscious in the beauty that life is bringing us. It is through zentegration when you bring awareness to the different aspects of ourselves, we integrate, let go, heal and live our best life.

 

When we change our mind about something, it can either be for better or for worse. Everything that is brought to us is for us to learn from, but due to the intensity of things we normally shove it deep down and ignore it or live the same scene over and over. I believe that our bodies are talking to us at all times; it gives us clues to how we are doing. There are many experts that say our biography becomes our biology. However, we are so stuck in the race, that we do not have the time to listen. We are being run by our minds and not living from our hearts. Therefore there is a disconnection. We are tired of feeling run down, tired, living with stiff necks, and chronic back pain. Or maybe it is manifesting in extra weight, disease, and anxiety. When we take the time to address where our wellness wheel is flat we start live from a whole place. Then the living really starts, we live a free life- and living a free life of mind, body, and spirit, is where we cultivate beauty from the inside out.
