Jennifer Cawley completed her training in therapeutic massage at Bristol Community College in 2000 with the hope of using her skills both to foster health in those who are well and to improve the quality of life of those living with chronic pain. Early in her career, Jennifer honed her skills among a team of talented massage therapists in southeastern Massachusetts offering treatments adapted to the individualized needs of clients with diverse treatment goals ranging from stress relief and relaxation to rehabilitation from recent injuries and reduction in chronic pain.
In 2001, Jennifer earned national certification through the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB). Less than two years later, she established a practice in Providence, Rhode Island and continues to maintain licensure and serve populations in both Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
Since completing her core training in Swedish, deep tissue, prenatal, sports, and chair massage as well as trigger point work, Jennifer has pursued advanced training with gifted teachers in eastern and western modalities, including orthopedic massage, yoga instruction, Thai-yoga bodywork, myofascial release, and oncology massage. Jennifer’s work draws substantially from her ongoing training with orthopedic massage therapist and teacher, Ben Benjamin. She has studied Thai-yoga bodywork for several years, primarily with Ken Nelson of Kripalu Center and Sacred Healing Arts from whom she earned level II certification in 2010. Jennifer completed several trainings in oncology massage with researcher, author, educator, and massage therapist Tracy Walton and has practiced both private and hospital-based massage for cancer patients, survivors, and their caregivers. Jennifer has completed several yoga teacher trainings with Tom Gillette, formerly of Eyes of the World Yoga Center in Providence and Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, and Shiva Rea. She is a registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance and has taught yoga classes and provided private yoga instruction in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
In 2013, Jennifer earned board certification through the NCBTMB, and she is a certified member of Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (ABMP). Jennifer completed a bachelor of arts with highest honors from Wellesley College in 2007 and earned a master of fine arts at the Rhode Island School of Design in 2011.
Jennifer enjoys working with clients with varied needs and goals, and she remains deeply grateful for the clients, colleagues, and teachers with whom she has worked and for all that they continue to teach her.
