Nathaniel Jensen | RMT

He is empathetic and genuinely cares about his patients’ well-being, doing everything he can to help them get better in the shortest amount of time.
Nathaniel prefers to massage at a therapeutic pressure, where it may hurt a little bit, but it still feels good. This level is different for everyone, so those that enjoy a deeper massage, and those that enjoy a lighter massage can all leave feeling that the treatment was tailored just for them.
In July 2023 Nathaniel participated in a course for DermoNeuroModulating or DNM. This course teaches an interactive approach to manual therapy that considers the nervous system of the patient from skin cell to sense of self. Techniques are slow, light, kind, responsive and effective while being in constant communication with the patient to understand and guide their healing journey.
In his spare time, Nathaniel enjoys the outdoors, hiking up mountains and scuba diving in the oceans.
