About me

I have been a Physical Therapist for 20 years. Through that time, I have come to appreciate the fact that the physical is just one part of health. Our emotional and mental health is just as important to living a vibrant and fulfilling life. As a health and wellness coach I partner with my clients to help them identify areas of their life that need more attention. This may be finding an exercise routine you can stick with, helping manage their aches and pains, getting more restful sleep, learning to prepare nourishing foods or even how to decrease stress and find more fun in life.

My Philosophy of Care

We are all beautiful beings, just the way we are. Through identifying our strengths and embracing positive self talk we learn how to embrace challenges and learn from our mistakes. I believe in making living a healthy life easier through developing positive habits and designing our environment for success. The support and accountability that coaching provides allows us to make a plan and stick to it so we can meet our goals.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

On our first visit, we take the time to hear your story and pause to identify the areas of your life that are going well as well as those that could use some attention. Together we will build a vision of what you want your life to look like and then break down the process into small steps to get you to your goal.

My Inspiration

A life well lived is one that helps others. My dad is in medicine and watching him take pride and purpose in helping others planted a seed in me to do the same.

Questions & Answers
Jen Howe, MPT, FMCHC, NBC-HWC (Physical Therapist and Health Coach) Answers
I feel like there are many ways to restore a more "normal" curve to your neck. First step however would be to figure out what caused the curve of the neck to change in the first place and change that first. This might be weak core and neck muscles with poor posture, a workstation that isn't set up correctly, or habitual movements. Of course, there are always things like a car accident that we can't really change once it has happened. The curve of the spine is controlled by the muscles, shape of the bones, ligaments, fascia and neurological system. Often time successful treatment includes lengthening tight muscles (suboccipitals, pecs, lats) and fascia, strengthening weak muscles (core, deep neck flexors, upper back) as well as addressing stiffness in the joints of the spine that may be holding one in non-ideal posture. The last thing to remember is that we are all unique beings and our spinal curves will be different than the person next to us. While there is a spinal curve that is considered "normal" it is not something everyone will have. The important thing is to feel strong and balanced in your body.

Great question! When it comes to stress there are two parts to deal with the stressor (what is causing the stress) and the stress in our body. In regards to dealing with the stress in our body, the book Burnout by Emily Nogoski talks about the importance of completing the stress cycle. What this means is that when you feel stressed, you need to find a way for your body to essentially get rid of it or complete the cycle. This might be through physical exercise, emotionally connecting with a loved one, doing something creative, having a good cry, or deep breathing/meditation. The best way to deal with stress with vary from person to person, it is important to figure out what works for you! Exercise and connecting with a friend are what work for me!

This is such an important part of our physical health that is often overlooked! I like to think of kids and how they play and are jumping off of things, scaling walls, spinning in circles and balancing on one foot all while just having fun. They have great balance because they are constantly challenging it. They also have youth, strong muscles and bones and fully functional inner ears intact. As we get older, we lose muscle mass, our vision gets worse and become more sedentary. That saying "if you don't use it, you lose it" comes into play here. If we want to keep our balance, we have to be doing things to challenge it and keep our muscles and bones strong. Where you start depends on your current level of balance and strength. Simple balance exercises like standing on one foot or on a foam pad can be a good start. I also love Tai Chi for improving balance. In addition to balance exercises, it is important to strengthen your core, hips and legs to help increase muscle mass which will also help you steady on your feet! The key is to keep consistent and try to do something everyday. Make it something you enjoy like even dancing in your kitchen!
