About

Jennifer Koh is a clinical massage therapist, designer and writer born and raised in the Boston area. She earned a BA in English from Boston College and decided on a career in graphic design after a temp job placed her at WGBH, home of quality programming and design. While attending the evening program at the Massachusetts College of Art, she worked as a Communications Officer at Bank of Boston (now known as Bank of America). Supportive management allowed her to exercise her writing skills in technology while building her design savvy. After graduation, she worked for several years as a designer creating logos, brand identities, collateral and presentations in both boutique firms and corporations. Intense hours in front of the computer led to the development of shoulder and back pain. She was introduced to a massage therapist in Arlington and the experience between education and relief led her to the Muscular Therapy Institute in Cambridge (now known as Cortiva). While she helped produce textbooks at Houghton Mifflin/McDougal Littell during the day, she spent her nights and weekends learning anatomy, physiology and technique. She began her massage therapy career in 2004, shortly after graduation, and spent the next several years providing orthopedic and pregnancy massage to athletes, mothers-to-be and working professionals in the Boston area.

She enjoys further exploration of her pursuits as well as being a student of yoga, hiking, dance and the arts.
