Since 2003 Jo has approached health and healing with integrity and curiosity. Over the years she has focused attention on two distinct styles of acupuncture while emphasizing studies in women’s health, sports medicine, and depth psychology.
Based on original work by Janet Travel, MD Acupuncture Physical Medicine was developed by Dr. Mark Seem over 40 years ago and incorporates dry needling technique to release myofascial trigger points found in the body. Coupled with Traditional Chinese Medicine this approach releases held patterns and is incredibly effective for pain and constriction.
Alchemical Acupuncture is an approach to healing that incorporates concepts of Five Element Acupuncture, Taoist theory, Jungian psychology and the ancient practices of Alchemy. This work encourages thoughtful insight as part of the process thereby inviting transformation and allowing us to move towards a new realm of possibility rather than simply restoring what already was.
Alchemy teaches us that it is only through such a descent into the fertile, chaotic waters of the deep unconscious that permanent changes and healing can occur.” Lorie Dechar, L.Ac
