Jenny Pospieszny – Aromatherapy Coach

13 : 18 Querformat

Jenny grew up in East Berlin in the 80s, she is an all-Berliner and a straight shooter with a big big heart! After years of working in an office, she decided to pick up the art of massaging as her way of personal development. Before she knew it, she was hooked and she worked to become a massively successful masseur in Berlin, working for 5 star hotels and subsequently managing hotel spas herself.

Her training began as a relaxationn therapist, specializing in hypnosis and Progressive Muscle Relaxation according to Jacobson. In 2011, she started advancing her knowledge in aroma-therapy and became an expert in using aroma to ease body tension and soothe troubled emotions. Her passion for natural healing continues, as she  eventually mastered the skill of quantum healing.

Jenny is an all rounded masseuer mastering skills of different kinds of massage techniques and therapeutic treatments. She uses Aromatherapy to treat her clients’ mental, as well as, physical discomforts on a daily basis. Her experience and feedback from her clients proves the effectiveness of her approach. She believe we  should all try to heal our body naturally before committing to heavy medication. She believes good health is maintained on a regular basis at home. For that reason, she had the idea to organize workshops to coach people who are interested to use aromatherapy in their wellness routine.

Since she is a well soughted masseur in Berlin, working with various 5 star hotels and important clients in the city; her job doesn’t leave her with alot of time for workshops. LearnApe is very honoured to represent and work with her in her upcoming Aromatherapy workshop.
