Bodywork for Wellness

Jennifer CatinoAbout Jennifer Catino, MPT, LMT

Jennifer Catino is a NYS licensed Physical and Massage Therapist. She earned her BS and a Masters degree in Physical Therapy from Quinnipiac University in CT. She is also a graduate of the Center for Natural Wellness School of Massage Therapy in Albany, NY. She has worked as a physical therapist since 2002 and has been practicing massage since 2004.

After working in the traditional medical model for many years and finding a lack of appreciation of the body as a whole, Jennifer knew she wanted to open a practice that allowed for the treatment of the whole person, body, mind, and spirit, not just a few of the parts.

Jennifer opened her practice, Bodywork for Wellness, in 2007, with the intention of treating clients in a progressive holistic fashion to not only decrease their pain, but to bring wellness and balance to their bodies. She believes that restoring physical and mental well-being makes it easier for a patient's body to function normally and use its own recuperative powers more effectively.

Jennifer is a life-long learner and has taken extensive professional continuing education courses in manual physical therapy techniques with an emphasis on Myofascial Release as taught by John Barnes and emphasis in Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT). OMT includes a system of techniques, using the hands to correct joint and tissue dysfunction. Jennifer is also one of a few therapists in the Capital District region who has received specific training in assessment and treatment of the pelvic floor.

When Jennifer is not working or taking classes, she enjoys spending time with her family, as well as being out in nature.
