What They're Saying...

WOW! Just WOW! There are few people out there that are as kind, caring and empathetic as Jo. She really leaned in to listen and understand, then helped to fix everything that needed attention. She looked at the big picture then broke it down so that progress was quickly made.

I am so thankful for my time with her and would highly recommend her to others. Run, don’t walk to see Jo. Patty S.

Great All-around Wellness Practitioner I recommend Jo’s expertise in cooking healthy foods, and I love her cookbook, “Real Food.” I also love her massages! I have gotten two massages by Jo, and both left me feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. My Mom (who has Alzheimer’s), was massaged by Jo, and the whole time she smiled, giggled and sighed! My Mom is wheelchair bound, so it is very important for her to get massage to help with her circulation. She looked so happy and relaxed the whole time! In fact, her 88th birthday is coming up, and I just booked Jo for another massage for her!! I also want to mention that while I am recovering from Covid now, Jo’s healthy soup and smoothie are making me feel so much better!!!! Donna B.

She is Amazing! Today was my second session with Jo. She is amazing. Jo is very knowledgeable and thoughtful about the service that she provides. She is very good at listening to specific issues that I am having and she addresses the problem… Brian M.

Community Qigong Jo was wonderful with teaching Qigong at the Franciscan Center. She is very knowledgeable, and a great teacher. All the participants enjoyed themselves. The Center would definitely recommend Jo. Franciscan Center

Thorough, Kind, and Gentle Jo is very thorough, kind, and gentle. She has been massaging my 73 year old mother who has several health issues, and has quite a bit if circulatory concerns and muscle pain. Jo has taken her time to listen and ask questions about the state of her health, and tailored her treatment of her to fit her needs while avoiding discomfort. She always reaches out post treatment to follow-up on how my mom is doing. Her pleasant demander and smiling face is also a bonus. Brigitte K.

Phenomenal session! Discovered the nature of my overwhelm and how to prioritize what I have to do versus my values. Jordan D.

Insightful and Reassuring With the Insightful and reassuring guidance from you last year I have seen an incredible improvement in my overall self- conscious and my main goal of living a overall healthier lifestyle. Thanks to all of your help and encouragement I have been able to lose 40lbs since we worked together back in 2020! Thank you for all you’re help! It changed my outlook on myself as well as motivated me to take action and get healthy, body and mind. I highly recommend anyone in need of guidance or a mentor to reach out to Jo! Briana L.
