Our Happy Patients

Our Happy Patients

When I met Josse for the first time, I was in a miserable situation.

My life has been changed dramatically last half year since I started having Josse's consultation. When I met Josse for the first time, I was in a miserable situation. I was just getting out from my terrible stomachache and weight-loss from the stress, and I was overeating and gaining weight as rebound. Thanks to Josse's encouragement and guidance, I started cooking healthy food at home, exercising regularly and doing more things I wanted to do for my personal growth. As I started changing my daily life and disciplining myself, I started having wonderful people and things into my life. I am a totally different person†with a lot of energy and strength. Also, I did not even pay attention, but I have almost the perfect body as I wanted to have! Thank you, Josse!

I have learned to easily cope with stress instead of allowing it to effect my life

I came to Josse during a time when I was having great emotional instability. My stress and discomfort had begun to cause terrible pain in my shoulders and neck to the point where I was unable to sleep. Josse was able to patiently explain to me how the stresses in our life can manifest as bodily pain. Her acupuncture treatments helped me to connect with who I was so that I could begin making changes in my life that would lead to becoming pain free and healthy. Since beginning her acupuncture treatments I have found that I am overall a happier person, I have no pain, and have learned to easily cope with stress instead of allowing it to effect my life

The difference between Josse and others is that Josse takes time to do a thorough evaluation of your health at the beginning of the treatment. She is very gentle in her approach and also educates you

I came to her Josse I lost a job I was extremely dedicated to. I was heart-broken, to say the least and had also lost my will to live. She kept encouraging me to take care of myself and gave me suggestions. She never used force or told me that I had to follow a specific regimet. She kept stressing that what would be in my highest interest.

Amber - after working with Josse I feel a million times better

When I came to see Josse I was going through a pretty severe bout of depression and anxiety and it was getting worse and worse despite my coping mechanismsIt had gotten so bad to the point were I wasn’t really able to function at work.

I was on the verge of having panic attacks, i was crying. For example, i felt on the verge of panic attacks or crying while I was in the middle of a meeting. Like I was on the verge of losing control. This was really affecting my job which I love.

Immediately within a few days the anxiety levels had dropped tremendously and it felt like I could actually function at work and that was almost instantaneous after I made those few diet changes that you had me do.

Our Wellness Philosophy

Acupuncture ServiceTo be radiant we need to be willing to let our inner light shine out. This creates true beauty. High vibration foods and energy medicine removes blocks and stagnation, enabling us to shine more brightly.
Meredian MeasurementOur bodies are supercomputers capable of finding homeostasis when our lives are lived in balance. We live stressful lives out of balance with the laws of Nature and this leads to inflammaging and hormone imbalances. Acupuncture and medicinal herbs restore the balance.
Believe In Your DreamsEach of us has a purpose and set of tasks that we have agreed to master. Having the right mind set and tools to discover and live our life purpose is an important foundation in our program.
