Memorable Quotes:

“Well, I would just say try to find something that brings you joy. It doesn’t have to be pickle-ball. I would just look back at your childhood. If you loved dance or if you loved hiking or you loved whatever it was, gardening, I would just try to immerse yourself in things that bring you joy because that will release endorphins.” – Jennifer Engels

“Many individuals tend to avoid certain beneficial therapies, such as myofascial release or dry needling, due to the discomfort they experience during the session. However, the relief afterward can be significant, akin to releasing built-up tension and pressure that one may not have realized was impacting them deeply.” – Jennifer Engels
