Age Doesn’t Need to Equal Pain with the Helpful Knowledge of this Professional

by | Dec 7, 2022 | Member Spotlights | 0 comments

We don’t always end up where we planned to be.

Our group’s professional massage therapist Jen McFarland of Stepping Stone had always dreamed of joining the FBI, “stopping the bad guys” and making a difference by working to prevent her friends and neighbors from the pain and misery caused by criminal forces.

As our speaker today, Jen shared her story of how that journey toward peak Law Enforcement pushed her into the U.S. Marine Corps, and how the learning, training, and injuries she experienced while enlisted ultimately led her toward another means of preventing pain and misery — massage therapy.

Most of Jen’s clients would tell you this is an area she quite excels in, with a greater love for and understanding of the body than the vast majority of her field. Beyond the Marine Corps she pursued knowledge and formal education in nutrition, various therapies, all-things body mechanics—and ultimately certification to help clients alleviate pain with body work.

While this passion was something that Jen cultivated quite easily along her life’s experience — it was in a role working exclusively with elderly clients that she experienced the greatest jump in realization as to how much sometimes life-changing benefit her knowledge and skill can ultimately provide. In this role she frequently helped clients as old as their 90’s to live more comfortably and with fewer pain medications.

It was here that she developed the resolve that “age doesn’t equal pain,” a mantra she’s carried since. Now she’s happy to share these words with anyone who’s otherwise resigned themselves to living with increasing discomfort as a fact of life.

The truth is, with attentive care and the right techniques, age really doesn’t have to equal pain. For that, Jen is here to help. Schedule an appointment with her today!

For another great presentation next week and every Wednesday, join us weekly in Dexter!
