Jennelle VanderStouw has been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 2008 and was certified as a Lymphedema Therapist in 2017. When her father was diagnosed with cancer in 2014, she sought more training in oncology massage to help ease his symptoms and improve his quality of life. That experience totally changed the focus of her massage practice to working primarily with those either going through their cancer treatment or living with the effects after treatment, such as lymphedema (though she loves doing massage on sore people, sports people, pregnant mamas and everyone in between too:) Her personal cancer journey began at the end of 2017 when she was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer. Going through surgery and recovery gave her another layer of understanding and empathy that allows her to be an even more compassionate therapist and resource for her clients.
She believes that massage is for everyone, at every stage of life to help keep the body fluid, moving and feeling good. She lives in Phoenix in a mid century house with her husband, Scott and two kitties, Philip and Penny.
