Testimonials

I have no words that can express the amount of gratitude I have for having Josie in my life. I give her credit for bringing the most beautiful blessing into my life. My son. I was told by Western medicine doctors that I either needed to stay on birth control pills, which I had been on for over 25 years for ovarian cysts, or have surgery. Neither was an option for me. Josie was able to rid me of my ovarian cysts as well as put me into labor within 48 hours of my treatment. She gives you the time and attention you need with the utmost patience and care. Her technique is delicate and loving. Not only is she professionally wonderful, she is also one of those women who you would love to just sit down with and have a cup of coffee. Her presence makes you feel physically and emotionally safe.

Working with Josie was a great way to help my body and mind recover naturally after childbirth. I felt like my body needed “re-calibration” after giving birth and Josie was the first person I thought to call. She has such a positive and healing energy that is wonderful to be around. I was having trouble sleeping and Josie was able to help me start sleeping more soundly through acupuncture. I am also breastfeeding and noticed that my milk production was more in sync with my baby’s needs after my acupuncture treatments. I like that Josie and I can relate on many levels. She is also a mother and into more natural routes as far as medicine and healing go, which align with my own beliefs. Josie is so passionate about her work!

I started seeing Josie for acupuncture while trying to conceive. She worked wonders to regulate my body’s monthly cycles and empowered me to trust my intuition. My husband and I experienced a long fertility journey full of doctor appointments, tests, varying opinions, emotional ups and downs… and Josie was extremely supportive in helping me find a balance between western and eastern medicine. I participated in her Fertile Woman online course and learned a wealth of beneficial tips and strategies. After modifying my diet, making some career and lifestyle changes, working with a hypnotherapist, and continuously seeing Josie, I am happy to say that we conceived! I could not have done it without Josie’s knowledge, treatments & online courses, kind nature, and unwavering support. She was truly my rock on my fertility journey. I was so excited to take part in her Pregnant Woman course, and now feel completely prepared for my pregnancy journey! Thank you for being a wonderful practitioner, women’s health expert, and emotional support system, Josie. You are making a huge difference in many women’s lives!

Working with Josie has been a true gift; I am so grateful to have connected with her. From listening intently to my health history and updates, to answering my questions about acupuncture and my treatment, to being genuinely interested in my well-being, Josie consistently shows dedication and passion in her work. I visited Josie because I had an irregular cycle. After working with Josie, I am on a path to a regular cycle and am feeling better than ever. I am so glad she is a part of my journey, and I look forward to continuing to work with her.

Working with Josie has been a complete game-changer for my health and well-being. Coming from a family of M.D.s, I was unsure about acupuncture as a healing modality to start with, and not certain it would “work” for me. Josie made me feel comfortable and confident from the beginning, and I felt totally safe in her hands. She approaches her medicine from a whole-person perspective, listening and taking the time to really capture all that is important and needs to be addressed. I can’t overstate how incredible Josie was in bringing me into health; she balanced my hormones, addressed a long-term chronic skin condition that completely resolved (that the M.D.s had given up on healing), and alleviated the morning-sickness and fatigue of pregnancy. Her treatments reduced my stress overall and left me more balanced. Josie is in every way a true healer and a real pro at what she does, and the impact of her care continues even as I am now postpartum.

Josie has been an incredibly kind, healing provider, resource, and support to me during my pregnancy. From morning sickness, heartburn, achey back, tearful days and all the other not-so-glowing pregnancy symptoms, Josie was able to encourage my body back into balance with her needles. Josie’s sound advice helped me to work through my discomforts and nutritional suggestions eased digestive upsets. I always knew I would leave her office with a feeling of optimism–that it would all be worth it once my little one was here (it is!). I’m forever grateful to Josie for helping make my pregnancy smooth, and prepare my body for a natural childbirth. I would, and do, highly recommend Josie to friends and family for treatments through pregnancy and postpartum.

I started working with Josie about a year ago after a pretty horrible year…consisting of a ruptured brain aneurysm, spending a month in NICU, I was pretty stressed out, emotionally and physically depleted. My hormones were a mess, adrenals were in complete failure, and I suffered from daily headaches. After many neurologist appointments, nutritionist appointments, physical therapist appointments, and constant drug prescriptions chasing a cure, I finally said enough. I went to Josie every week and while she was addressing several different issues at first, after every treatment, things started to feel so much better. I am happy to say that I have been headache-free for the first time in years! I am also in such a better place to handle stress as well. Josie has even fixed me when I hurt myself working out. Her cupping technique is amazing!! I can’t recommend Josie enough, She has changed my life!!

Josie is wonderful! I came to her at a time when my life was very chaotic and stressful and she helped me reestablish balance and peace through acupuncture, herbs, vitamins, and diet changes. Not only has my overall well being improved but my skin has never looked better! Josie has a very gentle approach and she really tries to treat the root cause rather than the symptoms by asking great questions to get a clear picture of the body as a whole. I participated in two of her online programs that gave me a tremendous amount of information, with regards to healthy living, that I never would have gotten otherwise. She is quite knowledgeable and has done all the research (with references provided) to help with a lot of common health issues. I always feel calm and happy after I have an appointment with Josie and would recommend her to anyone interested in making a positive change in their life.

I was referred to Josie by a nutrition therapist. I was going to be getting married in a few months and we wanted to start trying for a family shortly after. I hadn’t done acupuncture previously so didn’t know what to expect but went in with the blasé attitude that it couldn’t hurt. Leading up to my wedding, I was stressed and often looked at acupuncture as another commitment that added to my busy schedule. Josie was always extremely understanding and supportive during this time; even when I would miss and re-schedule appointments. After the wedding when things calmed down and I made the proper space for it, I experienced a major shift. Instead of a hassle or another appointment to keep, I started looking forward to each session. I started to listen to my body. I enjoyed learning and was excited to see positive changes that would occur after our work. I feel like I have a real partner in Josie. It’s comforting to have the extra support through a process that can be scary and confusing. I would recommend acupuncture, and specifically Josie, to anyone no matter what the issue.
