Jennifer L Cardona-Norton

Jennifer Lynn Cardona-Norton is a Licensed Massage Therapist who has been practicing her craft since 2015. She has been a Licensed Nail Technician since 2011, and began her career in a spa setting in her hometown of Alice, Texas in 2010, finally stepping into an independent setting in February of 2022. She has attended many AMTA Texas Conventions, and has even traveled out of state to attend classes and workshops in hopes of soaking up as much information as possible about the benefits of massage therapy.

Jennifer is passionate about the benefits of raising awareness and bringing light to the community of people who struggle with mental health issues and the positive impact massage therapy can have on their lives. In 2022, she took the necessary steps to become an Instructor for Massage Therapy, and is currently undergoing training for a Mental Health Crisis Team. The time to create awareness and support is now. Through the power of touch, Jennifer believes that we can influence the future generations to seek healing and self care, while providing support and education to our community of LMT’s.

This mother of four, has an amazingly supportive husband, and knows firsthand just how beneficial it is to educate yourself on the pros and cons of every modality. She believes, If you continue to network, seek knowledge and experience, and remain open to criticism, you will continue to grow, but if you choose to stay stagnant, you will remain exactly where you are.
