During the Covid-19 ordinances, all one-on-one sessions are through FaceTime or Zoom. Still, one-on-one sessions can be beneficial. The key in this format is the co-regulation that happens on a neurological level. This is basically being deeply listened to and practicing with a "live mirror." Neurologically, there is such a thing as "mirror neurons," which are fully engaged when we are with others and "tuned in with them." It is feature of compassion and empathy and how these energies get expressed in the human system. The movement, breath and meditative practice that follows is tailored for you. There is talking, there is moving, and sometimes laughing and sometimes crying, all of which can be natural expressions of the body's functions coming back into balance.
I started visiting Josie sometime in November, she has been treating me since on the weekly basis, the pain and numbness on the back of my left hand predominately the back of my index and middle fingers has significantly improved, she's also thought me how to better cope with the remaining numbness and occasional pain that I may experience at times. She's invited me to participate in her weekly Qigong class....Thank you Josie for helping me and introducing me to a new healthier lifestyle. -Adolfo
The energy clearing sessions I have experienced with Josie have been super helpful in releasing old beliefs and patterns from within my body and mind. I appreciate her candor and sense of humor as I moved through challenges. It made it easier for me to let go and not judge myself in the process. She is so lovely to work with. -Jessica
Josie designed for me on April 7, 2018 a special Qigong practice to prevent hopefully recurrence of stomach blockages caused by adhesions between intestines and/or intestine and stomach wall, all a very common result from stomach surgeries. I had just been released after a 4 days hospitalization for a partial blockage.
The practice which involves supporting me spiritually and physically while doing her designed stimulations of the body and especially the stomach area. The practice uses mental imaging, acupressure, stretching, stomach massage and finally breathing exercise. It takes everything from 25 to 50 minutes depending of number of repetitions. I do them rigorously every morning. The longer times when I recognize the symptoms of the beginning of a blockage.
How have I been able to stick to the routine? In the beginning, I played the video she made of me following her loving and humorous instructions every day and later just now and when to check that I had not deviated from the form and for some encouragement. She has also always been there for me to answer and explain and to suggest some tweaking of the routine. -Gunilla
