Jessica M. Frey
Holistic Women's Health in Portland, Oregon
I’ve danced since I was three, and then right after I graduated from college I was in a car accident that totaled my car and my left knee. It was devastating.
To avoid surgery and get back to dancing, I worked my butt off for over a year. My physical therapist specialized in performing artists and used to tour with Cirque du Soleil. To say she was tough, is an understatement. But in the end, I was back in dance shape and 10 years later, I’m still dancing.
My healing journey taught me many things:
-Perseverance pays off, but pain is debilitating so be gentle with yourself.
-Your body heals on it’s own schedule even when you’re doing everything “right.” Patience.
-No matter how accomplished you are, going it alone is a recipe for disaster.
-I am a better friend, family member and healer for having struggled.
Today, My Work is to 'Support women through life's transitions -Menstruation to Motherhood to Menopause.'
From navigating careers and motherhood to aging gracefully in a society that revers youth. And if you’ve read this far, I might as well share that my favorite part of my job is that I get to talk about all of the taboo topics - sex, pee, poop, periods... it’s all good.
