What People are saying about services at 
Essence Health & Research...

"Jennifer is so sweet, thoughtful, and patient.  Her tailored yoga practice is a great mix of strength, deep breathing, and relaxation.  She has huge knowledge about nutrition and how nutrition affects health.  Her sessions are full of great energy and I feel so relaxed after my sessions with Jennifer.  I absolutely encourage you to book a session!" 

"Jennifer has been instrumental in my health progress.  I came to her in January 2022 with a broken back due to osteoporosis and high cholesterol. She helped me with the Alkaline diet I had chosen to do vs taking medication to strengthen my bones. She researched foods and supplements that would help me with my healing.  Because of the great progress we had made in a month, I had to have her on my journey to better health so I purchased the 3-month unlimited package.  From there I had encountered other health problems from gut bacteria, candida to polymyalgia rheumatica (inflammatory disorder causing stiffness/pain). She is very dedicated and loyal to helping me heal. She
continues to research my health issues and makes recommendations on what is best for me to heal and be healthy.  Again, due to her awesome and excellent care, I purchased another 3-month package as I could not continue without her guidance, assistance, knowledge, dedication and research. Because of her, my health is on the right path; the path that I want to be on.  Yes, I do have a couple of medical doctors but Jennifer has been the go-to person for me. Because of her, I understand my other doctors and it has help me to choose the right health path plan that works for me and that I want to be on vs taking prescription drugs. I am and will be forever grateful to this wonderful, caring, amazing person. You owe it to yourself to live your best life and Jennifer will help guide you to that path."
