Jem is passionate about supporting parents physically and emotionally in the sacred pregnancy and postpartum window, and helping them to learn the practices and embodied skills they need to Thrive — in all aspects of their personal health, as well as in their relationships.
She has seen how common it is for unhelpful, often trauma-related patterns to get re-triggered in pregnancy and postpartum, and is especially passionate about helping clients identify and transform the stress-based patterns that no longer serve them — including helping very independent women to rest, ask for, and accept loving postpartum support!
She loves supporting clients in breaking generational cycles of trauma and chronic stress (including hyper-independence, trust issues, health challenges, mood “disorders”, physical & emotional triggers), so they can feel empowered to be the people and parents they want to be, with practical skills to nourish their own and their families’ well-being, so the next generation can enjoy more vibrant health, emotional freedom, and deeper connection.
She deeply believes that when parents have the support and tools they need to balance their own nervous systems with compassionate understanding, parenting becomes more joyful and easeful, and the effects reverberate throughout their families and communities, to allow us to co-create a more harmonious world in which we All can Thrive.
Jem is a trauma-informed Daoist sacred embodiment facilitator, licensed acupuncturist and herbalist. Her practice integrates classical Chinese medicine, holistic nutrition, meditation, body-centered healing practices (massage, qigong, acupuncture, breathwork, Jade egg yoni exercises, & Daoist inner alchemy), and feminine power coaching to support her clients to thrive in their own health and in family life.
She loves working 1:1, both online and in person, as well as in groups and online classes, to make these practices as accessible as possible to all who desire them.
