At the nexus point of physical and spiritual healing…
Jennifer Gebhard likes to think of her life as a nexus point of conventional and holistic healing. Jennifer has been in the medical profession for over thirty-eight years, ten of which she spent working in a hospital on the medical/surgical unit. Since 1987, she has been an Adult Nurse Practitioner, working predominantly with the Veteran population in primary care medicine.
For much longer than these thirty-eight years in medicine, Jennifer has been interested in holistic practices of healing. She is a Reiki Master with twenty years of experience, and a massage therapist with over twenty-five years of experience. She has training in both Swedish massage as well as AMMA, an Oriental style of massage therapy. This combination of allopathic healing and oriental theory has helped her blend and improve her ability to make better treatment choices for her patients.
Jennifer has been studying and practicing herbalism for equally as long, and is a registered Herbalist with the American Herbalist Guild. Her kitchen is always filled with drying herbs, bottles and vials with homemade tinctures and oils filling her shelves and cabinets. She uses essential oils for massage, personal care, and home health purposes. She has been known to make her own cordials and liqueurs both for presents and for medicinal benefit.
Today, Jennifer is happy to see the gap between Holistic arts and conventional medicine continue to shrink. The mind-body connection is where the healing arts began. Now quantum physics may provide possible theories for how energy medicine works. The healing arts have never been so varied and vibrant, with integrative medicine, holistic medicine, herbalism, energy work and more.
Nexus Point is a place where concepts, ideas, and plans meet head on. It is Jennifer’s hope to bring the nexus point of physical and spiritual healing to you, as her life experiences have done for her.
Jennifer Gebhard is based in Suffolk County, Long Island (NY).
