Jennifer Smith

Fascianation Method Rolling Practitioner | Highlands Ranch, Colorado

With a degree in Nutrition and a passion for fitness for more than 36 years, I am excited to share The Fascianation Method through weekly Live Zoom Classes as well as recorded On-Demand24/7!

When I was introduced to fascia fitness with The Fascianation Method of self-myofascial release (SMR), I fell in love with it. I immediately knew it was my missing link to helping my body feel better and do more! I believe what we have is a blessing for those who are open to learning how they can help their body heal themselves naturally – far more effectively. Personally, I haven’t suffered from chronic “tissue issues”, but I have experienced being “sidelined” from the things I love to do – because of acute pain due to over-exercising and improper stretching. Think- hip flexors, calves, lower back, and piriformis sciatica pain. I had been seeing a chiropractor for glutes/piriformis /sciatic issues for a few months without any real progress. Then, I attended a Facianation Method class and had immediate reduction in my pain. Healthy fascia has been called “the missing link” in fitness. This is truly a perfect way to Empower Health and help you to feel better and do more of what you love.
