Jenice Mattek, Co-author of What Lies Beneath: The Under-Realized Effects of Breast, Abdominal and Pelvic Surgeries, specializes in educating and treating women post-surgery. Jenice is a Licensed Clinical Massage Therapist, Occupational Therapy Assistant and an Integrative Movement Specialist.
Utilizing her 20+ year background in occupational therapy, massage therapy and fitness, Jenice addresses the needs and wants of women after surgeries like hysterectomy, Cesarean, mastectomy and more.
Jenice’s mission is to create awareness of the impact these surgeries have on the body like chronic musculoskeletal tightness, pain, or digestive issues, educate women on these effects and through education and treatment, empower them to take control of these symptoms, their health care and their bodies so they can successfully return to the activities of life that they need, want and love to do.
Jenice is now spreading and creating awareness of these post-surgery symptoms by teaching other health and fitness professionals working with women post-surgery so they too, can educate and empower more women to take control of their bodies and health care choices.
Jenice currently practices in Chicago along with her husband Dr. Evan Osar and their team at Chicago Integrative Movement Specialists. When she is not working with clients in her practice, she can also be found speaking on this topic at fitness and massage therapy conferences.
