Hi! I'm Jenn Hegel.
I'm originally from Fairbanks, AK. I graduated from UAF in 2002 with a BA in photojournalism. In 2009 I moved to Anchorage, AK where I met my future husband, Rob. In 2010 I decided to change my career path and quit my job at UAA and went back to school to obtain my professional certificate in Massage Therapy. I graduated in January of 2011 and immediately went to work as a LMT (licensed massage therapist) in the spa environment. I eventually switched focus and began working in more of a medical massage capacity by joining a chiropractic clinic team. I worked in the clinic, focusing on clients that were either pregnant or injured (car accidents, falls, sports injuries). I worked there through the birth of my first daughter. I left massage when she was 6 months old to be a full time stay-at-home mom.
I rejoined to workforce when I received my massage license in Idaho, where we moved in 2012. I was lucky enough to be a part of the massage team at the #1 ranked day spa in CDA, Idaho. There I learned several new modalities such as body wraps, scrubs and reflexology. While in Idaho, I was lucky enough to take CEUs in Raindrop Technique from a certified CARE educator. (Center for Aromatherapy Research and Education, Inc.)
My family and I moved to Monticello, KY in July of 2017. We now have two daughters, 6 & 1 and two dogs, Fergus & Kirby. My new massage studio Back 2 Wellness Massage Therapy is my first independent venture. I'm excited to be bringing my knowledge and experience to Southeast Kentucky. I can't wait to work on alleviating your stress and pain through massage. I look forward to working with you when you make you next appointment.
