About our staff
Jen is the owner of Sustainably You Bodywork & Skincare.
Jen is a Certified Pilates Instructor, Massage Practitioner and Licensed Cosmetologist with over 22 years of bodywork experience and 13 years of skincare under her belt. Specializing in swedish & deep tissue modalities, her style is soothing and nurturing yet she has the strength to work on the deep knots that ail many people in the upper back, shoulder and neck areas.
After taking a break from bodywork for a few years, Jen found her way back in February of 2009 and decided to start a new business also incorporating skincare. She knew that skincare would be a natural addition to her services, allowing her to pamper and educate individuals about the largest organ on their bodies, so that they could not only feel great but look great too!
After moving to Santa Barbara in 2015, Jen discovered Pilates and the many benefits it has to offer. Massage helps manage symptoms but why not help people take care of their body in a way that can help prevent and manage some of the Root Issues that bring many clients in for bodywork. This is what inspired Jen to became a Certified Polestar Pilates Instructor in 2018.
” I absolutely love what I do! The favorite part of my day is seeing how my client’s face softens and they feel relaxed and renewed after their treatment/sesssion, whether they just had a massage, facial, pilates session or any combination’.
Getting a massage AND a facial is a luxury but there comes a time you have to tell yourself, “Screw it, you deserve this.” This past week (maybe I should say the last couple of months) was very stressful and of course with the holidays approaching it certainly adds more. I try to always take care of myself in the best way that I can and usually it doesn’t include spending money but in this instance, it was worth it.
I have been looking around Yelp to see which massage/skincare place to go to and I stumbled upon Jennifer. I read reviews and liked what I read and decided to make an appointment. Easy.
My appointment was yesterday for a massage and facial. Lets just say this was my Christmas present to myself. When I entered the place, I was welcomed by Jennifer. Her space is nice and cozy. Lets get to the good part. The massage: She listened to my needs and was spot on. She didn’t have to make adjustments with the pressure it was perfect..my body was in healing mode already.
The facial: After such a relaxing massage, my face needed some love. She would speak minimally and only when necessary. She did her thing and I was fine with that. I was incredibly impressed that extractions were not painful. With others-I usually ask to take a break BUT whatever her technique, it works. My face was nice and clean. It felt good. I felt very relaxed (the most I felt in a long time).
Jennifer is amazing! I will certainly go back. If you want to feel good and relaxed… Go see her! : )
Wow. There’s a reason you see only 5 star ratings.
Jennifer is a pro at what she does. She’s done massage for 11 years and skin care for about 3. The combo is great!
The massage was super relaxing, she knows how to apply the right amount of pressure. But it gets better. Between the facial w/steam and the foot scrub, I was completely relaxed and didn’t want it to end! She really took her time and talked to me about my skin before we started the session.
This is a MUST GO if you’re a massage junkie like me!
You won’t find a more knowledgeable, calm, kind massage therapist and skincare specialist. Prices are very reasonable (offers monthly specials to her email list). The space zen and comfortable. Treat yourself; Jen Warner’s great!

My community is full of massage therapists and I’ve had the good fortune to have experienced many different types of massage and massage therapists, so I feel I can evaluate massage objectively. I love Jen’s massages for how deeply relaxed I feel at the end. I feel nurtured in the best possible way and the good feeling I get from her work lasts into the next few days. Recently I got a back facial from Jen with a peel, etc. She combines therapeutic massage with her skin care and I left feeling much healthier than when I arrived.
I also have extremely sensitive skin. I’m allergic to fragrance and had some trepidation about having so many new products used on me, but they all worked out really well. My skin was velvety and smooth and I experienced no allergic reaction as a result of this session.
I had a very positive experience and am excited about the next time I get to have a massage or facial from her.
I’ve gotten hooked on massages by Jennifer Warner. She’s been in the business for over 10 years and now incorporates hot stone into her technique. She is intuitive in finding the trouble spots and remembering them. Her style is so fluid I sometimes get close to falling asleep. She works by appointment at Hayes Valley Wellness in SF, Purevana in Mill Valley or will come to you for an additional $20 fee. Her hand/arm strength is amazing even for a large or very muscular person and the products she uses smell great. They call it massage therapy for a reason – you feel very renewed & relaxed after a massage with her. The best kind of therapy imho – a real stress release for mind & body.
