She has been teaching classes for professional massage therapists since 2011. The subjects included Event Sports Massage, Therapeutic Stretching, Positional Release, Muscle Energy Technique, Postural Analysis and Kinesiology.
Janene specializes in more of a structural sports massage. Her techniques of choice are Muscle Energy Technique, Positional Release, cranial mobilization and visceral mobilization. Homework for clients might include Active Isolated Stretching or some other form of therapeutic stretching. She believes that these techniques, when used appropriately, have a tremendous impact on the muscles and fascia in the body.
A majority of her continuing education classes have been through the Ursa Institute, in Edmonds, WA and Sacramento, CA. Her instructors have been Dr. Loren ‘Bear’ Rex, DO and Lino Cedros, ATC. This is where she learned Muscle Energy Technique and Cranial Mobilization.
When not studying, or preparing to teach a class, she enjoys spending time with her family, both immediate and extended. She is also involved in the Children’s ministry through her church.
