About Jenny

Jenny Petridis is a Melbourne-born, qualified soft tissue therapist since 2005, with extensive experience in bodywork as a practitioner, presenter and teacher.  In the early years, she worked in several multidisciplinary clinics in Melbourne including palliative care massage at the Royal Women’s hospital.

She later expanded her horizons internationally where she pioneered and specialised in the Bowen technique (a very gentle bodywork method), teaching the mechanisms through her courses. 

Inspired by various methodologies from east and west, Jenny eventually set out to create her own healing techniques. Casa Therapie™  is close to her heart and home. [Casa = “home” in Spanish, one of the 4 languages she speaks.]
