Jenni's been helping people heal since 2008, first as a massage therapist Licensed in NYC, and then as an Acupuncturist here in Minneapolis. In her first career as a performer, she was treated for several injuries with Acupuncture and massage and finally experienced lasting relief.

As a dancer, she had always had a deep appreciation for the healing abilities of the human body, and committed herself to a Master's degree in Acupuncture in 2015 at Pacific College in NYC, later transferring to Northwestern Health Sciences to finish her education.

Through clinical rotations in hospitals and outpatient clinics, she spent significant time treating chronic pain, prenatal symptoms, women's health, post-operative conditions, and sports injuries.

Allison Gerstner

Allison is a massage therapist licensed in the city of St. Louis Park. She graduated with a Certificate in Therapeutic Massage from Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN. She also took the courses and exam to be certified as a NeuroMuscular Therapist through the NeuroMuscular Training Center.

Allison was born and raised in Bloomington, MN. She always wanted to go into a health-care profession as a child and decided working with her hands was a great way to start. Allison is determined to do the best she can to help others with her skills and knowledge and believes massage should always be a good experience for the client and works hard to make it a reality. She believes a good massage therapist listens to their client’s concerns to create the best session to help them reach their goals. Whether that be to relax and unwind or help manage any aches or discomfort caused by soft tissue dysfunction in muscles, tendons, or ligaments.

Allison loves to stay busy in her time outside of work at Excelsior and Grand Chiropractic. In addition to working as a massage therapist, she also works part-time at a pet store as she loves animals and thinks it provides the right balance of jobs to keep gaining experience. She often rotates between hobbies such as crocheting, painting, and sculpting. She loves spending time with her friends and family and finding out more about whatever topic currently has her interest.
