ABOUT JO

I am a licensed Acupuncturist with advanced training in Classical 5 Element Style and Japanese Acupuncture. I also have advanced training and certification in Luminous Body Energy Medicine.

The unique combination of Chinese Medicine, deep, focused bodywork and compassionate subtle awareness that I work with is incredibly effective for easing pain, healing injuries and chronic physical issues, rebalancing the body and unwinding old traumas, emotions, beliefs and pain that keep people from experiencing life as fully and happily as they would like. 

WHAT I SPECIALIZE IN

PAIN AND INJURY

I have extra special skills with pain and injury. In-depth study of Orthopedic Acupuncture, Orthopedic Shiatsu, Bodywork and Somatics, in addition to 16 years of dance training has helped me to develop a unique style of treatment including focused bodywork, which quickly and very effectively addresses acute and chronic pain and injury.

PREGNANCY, BIRTH AND POST-NATAL

I also specialize in supporting women in pregnancy, birth and beyond. I have trained and interned with highly respected leaders in the field of Pre- and Post- Natal Acupuncture, including Deborah Betts, Raven Lang and Holly Guzman. I love helping and educating women through the incredible transformation of their healthy pregnancy and birth. 

REACHING YOUR POTENTIAL

I also especially love working with people who feel that their emotional and mental states, as well as their belief systems may be getting in the way of their ability to be as focused, clear, happy, and truly themselves as they are capable of. This often manifests as symptoms such as fatigue, anxiety, insomnia, depression, hypersensitivity or dissatisfaction. I work collaboratively with clients to bring clarity, awareness and new resources to stuck, challenged or painful aspects, allowing them to unwind and come back into their natural, healthy state.
