Jessica Zelen, LMT

Chiropractic Assistant, Licensed Massage Therapist
From massaging family members as a 5-year-old to helping fellow cancer survivors recover from treatment, Jessica’s belief in the healing power of massage therapy is reinforced each day.

Jessica graduated from the University of Delaware with a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Resources. She then received her certification in massage and bodywork from the Gentle Healing School of Massage in Cranbury, NJ, where she graduated with honors. Jessica has a diverse background running her own massage therapy practice, working in spas, and collaborating with physical therapists and acupuncturists to customize sessions for the individual.

Jessica is certified in oncology massage for people recovering from or dealing with cancer treatment, as well as infant massage, pre-natal massage, Reiki I and II, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). She also specializes in Swedish massage, reflexology, hot stone massage, deep tissue massage and raindrop therapy.

A breast cancer survivor herself, Jessica provides massage therapy intended to stimulate weak and inactive muscles, which helps compensate for lack of exercise and inactivity caused by illness or injury. The list of conditions that can be helped through massage therapy is virtually infinite. Massage is used to treat stress-related tension, headaches and anxiety, muscle tension and spasms, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, sleep disorders, high blood pressure, diabetes, low back pain, depression, and cancer-related fatigue.

Facts about Jessica Zelen

Jessica got an early start in the world of massage therapy. As a 5-year-old, she would go around the dining room table giving all members of her family a back massage.
Jessica gave massage therapy every day to her Shih Tzu, who was paralyzed on the right side of his body after suffering a fall. One year later, he was walking running and playing!
The most inspirational people in Jessica’s life are her mother and sister, two strong, intelligent and compassionate women who have helped Jessica find her own inner strength.

Dr. Proodian & Dr. Kurt always look to find and treat the source of the problem rather than just masking the symptoms. An amazing place overall, great staff from the top to the bottom.
Derek T.
The most caring and professional staff in the area. Hands down my favorite place to go for acupuncture and adjustments!
Dave Z.
Very professional, caring, compassionate service. Would highly recommend this group of professionals. Being a healthcare educator, Dr. Proodian is well informed by his research.
Lorraine B.
Natural Healthcare Cebter is a first class operation. They are true professionals and the office is run like a well oiled machine. I have only seen Dr. Kurt and am extremely pleased with his service. I would highly recommend them.
Michael L.
I'm so happy I decided to take this step. I would say, "run, don't walk" to discuss your healthcare plan with Dr. Proodian and Dr. Coetzee (actually, the entire staff is worth mentioning - they are a great team!) Indeed, this is one of the best choices you will make in your life!
Susan M.
I can't say enough about how thankful I am to have been referred to Natural Healthcare. From the moment I called, to my most current appointment this week, Dr.Proodian and his staff have been AMAZING! If you are pregnant and have sciatica, or back issues in general, this is the place to go- you have the opportunity to find relief!
I had pulled out my back due to the stress I had experienced from the overseas trip my wife had gone on. Well since I been going to a chiropractor for over 30 years, I know the benefits of going to one. The Natural Healthcare Center performed the treatment that I needed. Their staff was excellent in addressing my problem and they solved my back situation in the first visit. As they recommended, I went back the following 3 days and was completely healed and that's why I gave them a 5 star rating
Mike L.
I own a personal training studio (Fresh training) and have always been very hesitant in referring my members out for medical support. Dr. Proodian and his staff are at a completely different level then the rest of their field. They give each patient exactly what they need. You can comfortably go with the knowledge that your best health is the centers #1 concern.
Rob L.
Not only is everyone at Natural Healthcare so friendly and caring, they really know what they are doing. I spent years visiting different chiropractors, orthopedists, massage therapists and physical therapists and no one could properly diagnose my shoulder pain. Dr. Claudia is the first person who was able to look at the big picture and realize that most of the pain in my shoulder was coming not just from my shoulder but from my neck. When I started PT I could barely move my neck to either side and could not turn my head. I finally feel like I am making real progress.
