Online Eating Psychology and Movement Coach
Working with Josse has been a wonderfully supportive and insightful experience so far the past 6-8 weeks. It has expounded upon the previous year of acupuncture I had back in NYC for a health problem and progressed into much deeper positive role.
From the beginning she took into account my health and diet history and future goals related to those areas and bigger goals in my life to create my treatments each week.
Each session we coach and talk about how the week went for my homework goals and how I could feel the acupuncture effects in my life around energy and food building a focus for that day's practice and the week ahead.
I would recommend Josse as a very caring and knowledgable practitioner and coach around your physical and emotional level challenges for moving forward in your life!
Amber - after working with Josse I feel a million times better
I was going through a pretty severe bout of depression and anxiety and it was getting worse and worse despite my coping mechanisms which i though should be sufficient. It 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. And through that in work with you, recognizing some of the the negative emotions and other things that was carrying around that were contributing to this and starting to process that then I started to feel less depressed and more myself. I felt lighter and with that came some more energy.
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.
In just a short time, five months that I have come to see Josse Ford, I’ve noticed major differences in my health and in my life. I did have two acupuncture treatments prior to her from two other acupuncturists.
The difference between her and the 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.
She truly dedicates herself to help you heal yourself. She welcomes questions on any health topic and is open to researching it.
I came to her after 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.
Soon I opened up with questions about nutrition because I saw a tremendous change in myself and I wanted to start being more proactive. She immediately emailed me recipes and suggested what to eat and what to avoid.
Josse has created a warm and safe environment in her practice. I have a much better outlook on life in general and myself. The treatments have helped me to keep going, even through the hardest times! I feel very much at ease, calm and at peace. I sleep a lot better. I’m very energized by the acupuncture treatments and the foods I’m eating.
Since going to Josse for acupuncture treatments I no longer have skin rashes all over my body, my digestive isssues of gas, bloating and constipation have gone. My sleep is great, I no longer wake up feeling anxious or distburbed and I fall asleep easily. I had a pain in my gut but that is now gone!
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!"
