Jen Cusmano BCNMT
Jen, known by most for her innovation in massage therapy. She is a board certified neuromuscular therapist, working for 19 years.
The journey first began. Life as an art major was the plan. This quickly changed to match her true calling. Branching off to fitness and sciences, she realized this was what she loved to do. Along with instructing fitness classes in the Hunterdon, Morris and Somerset County Areas, she gained a passion for helping people as a NJ certified home health aide.
One short year flew by but Jen took the plunge and started her own personal training company, honing in on the califon area.
Jen began exploring somewhat with what she is most well known for today by many. Training in physiology and body therapies, studying biomechanics, and working with some local physical therapy centers, she began piecing the very complex puzzle of the human body, along with her fitness experience.
With 3 more years of business experience under her belt, she jumped to the next stepping stone. The Body Firm Fitness Company was born. There she grew her fitness business while training with a local power lifter for bodybuilding
She attended SSMT for neuromuscular therapy. This gave her some of the final necessary components to bring her to The Acropolis / Physio Body Holistics today.
Years passed but the exploration continued, all paths adding to the last but giving a fresh spin unlike any other. Her days of living and educating others on living a natural life began with her new home, a small farm in Long Valley, NJ. This allowed her to share her love for herbs, natural therapies, animals and simply, nature. Holistic Nutrition…Iridology…Naturopathy…all added one by one to her repertoire to prove this all can be incorporated into one big picture. She received degrees in all of these fascinating alternative subjects.
With a bachelors in Holistic Nutrition and a Doctorate in Naturopathy, she continued to grow. She had received an Advanced Certification in Holistic Iridology as a Diplomat with the infamous Dr. David Pesek, International Holistic Iridologist.
Jen continues her studies of nutrtitional balancing with Endomet Laboratoris and homeopathy with Deseret Biologicals as well as pursuing her studies in iridology which she is currently conducting a group study and its connection with the Neuromuscular system. Physio Architecture is born and has been trademarked and Jen's Educational company The Acropolis Institute of Naturopathy is now on the path of creating Physio Architect's - A therapist that will be trained as she is with holistic and naturopathic intentions. She is an avid beekeeper pursuing her farm’s apiary that feeds off of the lavender field tended to by her husband and herbs tended to by her and her daughters.
Jen still has a strong passion for art and a love for Ancient Greece and Archeology.
