Complementary Care for Sleep, Anxiety, Pain, Perimenopause

Massage, bodywork, and health consultations to help you heal the root cause.

Downtown Chattanooga, TN


I’m Jennifer Maklan, Licensed Massage Therapist, Ayurvedic Practitioner, and owner of Ancient Traditions.

I specialize in Ayurveda (pronounced like ‘eye-your-vay-duh’), a complementary health system from India that addresses physical and mental imbalances with root cause analysis. 

I have the highest education for Ayurveda available in the U.S. My skillset allows you to receive amazing bodywork and health guidance that’s tailored just for you.

Ayurvedic massage uses long, sweeping strokes, very much like Swedish massage. The experience is soothing, calming, balancing to the mind and body, and tailored to your needs. 

When the timing is right, and you’ve got the right remedies, natural healing is powerful stuff.
