Zenz massage stones began with Jessica and her incredible story of recovery.
Zen represents feeling peaceful and relaxed. Zen is harmonious balance. Zen is an ideal tranquility. It is said that reaching for and creating as many healing, meditative and relaxing experiences as we can in our lives, enriches our lives. This brings us closer to the level of peace that we may desire. We hope our Zenz products will help that journey of tranquility, peace, relaxation, and balance.
Zenz – the plurality of Zen zzzzz…….Zenz Massage Stones
Jessica developed the first soapstone massage tool to assist in her own healing from a serious head on collision and resulting leg and foot injury in 2004. Unable to walk, stand or even bend her leg, Jessica suffered through four surgeries and severe pain over the next few years. She found she could not help herself heal with massage, as the leg could not bend and she could not reach her leg below the knee. She designed the first Zenz stone massage tool that allowed her to effectively use hot and cold therapy on the injured area, and greatly affected her ability to heal from her injuries, walk and enjoy a more normal life.
Jessica, a 1990 graduate of the Virginia School of Massage, started her practice within the spa industry. A fascination with the healing art of therapeutic massage began with her study of Reflexology in 1978, while living in New Mexico. This fascination has brought Jessica to the development of the Zenz concept and Zenz massage stones. She is also a licensed esthetician, and has utilized this training, along with 36 years of study in the art and science of massage, to create easy Zenz massage, facial, and reflexology techniques using Zenz Massage Stones. Unable to work after the accident, she focused her time on her own healing, and found the amazing soapstone cylinders helped her so much, she knew she had to bring it into the massage world and help others with her discovery. She has developed an easy to use massage tool, as well as ways to help loved ones or oneself relax, or aid in recovery from injury. She’s a strong believer of the phrase, ” If everyone got and gave a massage a day, the world would be at peace.”
A member of American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) since 1989, and a Licensed Massage Therapist, Jessica is also Nationally Certified through the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB).
