Jenny Garbutt hopes to make a difference in people’s health care,
Garbutt opened ReJen Health last March in the Sterling Centre on 25th Avenue.
“I have always been interested in body health. I have seen amazing results with this treatment on friends in the past so I decided to take a leap of faith,” said Garbutt.
Garbutt moved from Edmonton to Vernon in 1981. Prior to ReJen Health, she was an architect with her own interior design company.
Garbutt completed her electro-proscope course at the Thorp Institute last October in Encinitas, Calif.
Garbutt works with an electro-proscope machine. Half of the machine is an acuscope, which heals nerves. The other half is myopulse, which heal the connective tissues and bone tissues.
Two probes are placed with conductive gel around the injured area when a small electrical current is comfortably introduced.
The electro-proscope sends out a frequency at a millionth of an ampere or lower to encourage the damaged cell to resonate at the normal healthy frequency.
“It is detox at a cellular level. The gentle stimuli opens the cell gates releasing the waste allowing the cell to take in nutrients,” said Garbutt.
Each session lasts between 60 to 90 minutes and the amount of sessions required depends on the severity of the injury.
“It isn’t just for athletes. I have young patients and I just worked on someone who is 88 years old,” said Garbutt.
ReJen Health works with several acute injuries — anything from sports injures, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, back pains, shoulder and knee injuries.
Garbutt claims an 80 to 90 per cent success rate for people that stick with the program.
“It is like recharging a battery. You can use it after only charging it halfway, or you can charge it 100 per cent and be good to go,” said Garbutt.
Garbutt sees herself moving into the beautification field one day to use her work to reduce signs of aging.
