Janine resides in Genoa, Nevada with her husband and toddler son. She works out of Elevate Wellness Center in beautiful South Lake Tahoe.
Janine is motivated by the desire to see the potential and well-being of all things and this curiosity has shaped her life. For as long as she can remember, she has been interested in alternative methods and approaches for healing the body and obtaining a healthy lifestyle.
Throughout her life she has explored and highly respected many different methods and practices to achieve this. After her personal experience receiving the benefits, she committed herself to study and complete a 5-year, full-time Osteopathy program in Germany. This has given her the opportunity to have the medical background as well as a philosophical and spiritual approach to the body's healing processes. She graduated in 2008 with a diploma from the "German College of Osteopathic Medicine". She is also licensed as a Naturopath in Germany.
After moving to Portland and additional training at East West College of Healing Arts she received her Oregon license in January 2010.
Janine would like her work to function as a guideline for exploration, possibility and inquiry into health rather than a set of techniques.
Her love and appreciation for nature, meditation, breath work and movement are the foundation for her work.
She is deeply thankful for everything she has learned and humbled by all that arises from it.
