"Josie, our qigong/tai chi instructor, is wonderful and incredibly knowledgeable! The patients appreciate her thoughtful and centered style and even those that are skeptical at first tell me they enjoy her class. ... I like most of our wellness classes in the FRP (functional restoration program) to be focused on movement and Josie incorporates her skill set beautifully." -Dr. Rachel Feinberg, PhD of Physical Therapy and principal of Feinberg Medical Group in Palo Alto, CA
"...[My] colleague, Josie Weaver. She is not a researcher in an academic job, but she is one of our most esteemed teachers in the IIQTC [Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi], truly gets the esoteric/science fit of this work, and when we talk Polyvagal theory (one of my guideposts for understanding the true nature of the heart), she wows me with her knowledge. "
- Dr. Linda Larkey, researcher and professor of Nursing Science at University of Arizona
"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
"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 taught 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
