TESTIMONIALS

HOLISTIC MASSAGE THERAPY

THIS WAS MY FIRST MASSAGE EVER AND I WAS SUFFERING FROM ANXIETY.  I AM GLAD I GAVE MY TIME TO THIS ART!

I just thought that massage would help me control my anxiety after reading Joanna's web site.  I really didn't know what to ask or expect so thank God she did her thing since I finally felt freedom for the first time in 5 years.  My parents are also anxious and it seemed like i rippled to me and I always worried and my work took all my energies and then i was finished...not a great life!  It is hard to explain...all of a sudden my mind lost control and no longer was heavily monitoring..and my body was free to flow...and i saw beautiful things while i was in the clinic and wow can't wait to do beautiful projects now since i have hope. Nice to live again with energy and clarity...If you have lost control of your thought life I suggest you really go and surrender to your body's power to heal your mind.

HOW BODY WORK HEALED EMOTION SUCH AS ANGER!
I had the privilege to deal with Mr. X who had a condition.  As we discussed his anger was so high that it would have been very difficult to cause shift in other areas.  He was a very workaholic professional and we talked and practiced stillness with massage ...he was very hard to deal with since he had to do it his way.  He knew another protocol and kept generalizing that the process is the same. Again not easy but I was determined with him to see how massage would relieve him of  his anger and it did...every week he would notice he would be less offended and triggered..and I can say now even more emphatically that you can use bodywork to heal emotions such as anger. It was a great experience.  I wrote this case summary myself since he was so much in control of everything that I did not feel comfortable. We used reiki, head and foot reflexology and emotional acupressure among other modalities.
HOW BODY MIND CONNECTION HELPED MY PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE AND CIRCULATION.
I work in Engineering and wanted to rejuvenate...and Joanna recommended to do a series of Body Mind Connecting Massage Therapies before the Men's Health  The work i do is very linear and we both realized that initially had no idea how to express feelings. Yes that was very uncomfortable for me not to think through everything...I have to backtrack to my first revelation that my mind is not the only way to do life.  The first massage, Lomi Lomi Massage, opened me up to what a massage can be fabulously embalming and nothing in the past made me feel that good.   Then has i continued the learning curve of become whole brought me to such great discoveries and what a journey!  i discover that if practice embodying i can perform extraordinary physical tasks and even sleep in hotels!  and many more things happened...i was even able to cycle for hours in Hawaii without pain and my body had no pain after 2 week!  My body really improved from body mind connection in terms of performance and rejuvenation. 
DURING MY LEARNING CURVE I FINALLY CONNECTED WITH MY BODY AND FOUND THAT THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENCE IN QUALITY OF ENERGY OF MASSAGE.
It was a hit and miss and I did not plan since I was not use to use my senses to live compared to my brilliant mind....And recently I learned that I actually can measure the feelings in my body since my wife paid me a massage one day in Calgary which i could not say no to...and then feelings and facts corroborated since I found that that one massage lasted 30 min and Joanna's lasted 2 weeks and that is for now...
This is a journey and it has even affected my family including my relationship with my family and children.  The world of tactile has opened me up to a greater joy and self-confidence.  Yes it is worth to take this journey into humanity.
HOW MASSAGE HELPED ME SEE CLEARLY DURING THE DAY AND FEEL GOOD

I am a young male who works probably too much and found one day I was no longer present and couldn't see clearly what I even needed to do in the next 5 hours. Plus I was disconnected from people too. Not too happy with that situation. Now after the mind-body connection, I feel like I am whole again, can think clearly and am confident! So happy

I FINALLY FEEL ON TOP OF THE WORLD AND IN CONTROL OF MY BODY AGAIN

This is my first massage and was experiencing depression due to lack of libido etc and found that it lifted me out of that space. Thank you for saving me from depression and lackluster performance. 

 

I am a technician and had back pains. I had a few sessions and the pain is gone. The second day I had a pain somewhere else but it all came through very well. I am not used to seeing results since I go for a quick 30 min massage but now I know that you need to take your time to allow healing to happen.

 

I wanted to try Lomi Lomi for a while now and thought it was an erotic massage first, well I was wrong.  However, I had the most exquisite spiritual experience and it was felt in my body. I cannot even explain it. 

 

I work in logistic nonstop at the desk and found that at my young age I was having too many pains in the hip and neck and core area.  After a few sessions, all my pains are gone. You cannot believe how great I feel now when I work! I am so happy that my desk no longer enslaves me.

 

I had eaten a lot of soya during a vacation in BC and I got a reaction, it seems like it is not that healthy after all in a veggie diet!  I had the opportunity to receive a reflexology treatment this week and wanted to treat gout, enema among other things.  I really felt the power of her massage on specific reflex and acu points. Amazing!  Even felt renewed.  My foot hurt much and I know my health needs a boost but a natural boost!   I am a non-smoking vegetarian but on the heavy side, I did not realize how much self-care would make a difference.  On the 2nd visit, my toe was much better.  She has her own ways of treating and she scans to find out the cause of the problem too.  It is a great tool.    You should try it too, She gives specials when you take 5 weekly sessions. The 6th one is free.  I am looking forward to also doing the hands and other reflex areas of the body.  It's very popular in India. 

 

I am a very busy Professional in the construction field and was looking for massage on google but I found by surprise natural therapies to invigorate your sexuality. What a delight it was to find it since I had given up in the last 3 years of seeking solutions.I Tried the men's health clinic too but as you can see still looking.  The CIALIS gave me strong side effects. I was not happy with my marital life and I guess that I overworked and my sexuality was no longer existent actively. I was worried but I did not realize that my sexual life is a sign of health!  I have no medical record of any anomalies and yet in my 50s now but cannot be very manly.  This process is different from my usual linear mind but this why it should work better!.  The first experience of massage with Joanna showed me what I was missing out on feeling good in my body. Those energy waves are exquisite and I finally went to realms that did not feel heavy like earth.  I know there is something special about letting go and my engineering mind doesn't get it all now. but I can FEEL IT and that is a good start. You should try something that is uniquely enlivening, it is worth it.  The first session is a good day to get back into your temple and experience your body differently..after you can choose with Joanna to start the journey to sexual health.  This is a journey that you can actually taste the difference.. not just a medical clinic!

 

 

I am from Brazil and work work work in construction. I was feeling run down and needed something, so happy that I tried this rejuvenating Lomi Lomi. It gave me a new outlook on what can be possible.  I felt so good like a resurrected and even happier.  This was the best massage of my life. I want to keep the feeling every month with massage.  I am so happy that I did not need drugs. Thank you

 

 

1. THIS JOURNEY, WITH JOANNA, BACK INTO MY BODY SAVED MY LIFE AND BUSINESS. I WANTED TO CLOSE MY BUSINESS DUE TO MY OVERWHELM.  

AS A SCIENTIST, MY CONSTANT SEARCH FOR INFO  WAS A BIT OF A HINDRANCE IN THIS INTERNAL JOURNEY. I AM SAYING THIS SINCE MASSAGE REQUIRES LETTING GO TO THE BODY'S INTERNAL SELF-HEALING CAPACITY NOT A CONSTANT CHATTER AND JUDGEMENT. I DID NOT REALIZE WHAT A CHORE THAT WAS!  

I AM A MORE HAPPY AND GROUNDED PERSON  SINCE I LIVE IN MY BODY MORE. AND BEST OF ALL I AM STILL IN A BUSINESS I LOVE. THESE ARE THE DETAILS:

 

When I first came to the clinic, I was out of sorts and easily angered. Anything, even the parking was enough to trigger me.  I must say that I was having trouble with my partnership and was ready to stop everything at that point.

 

Today 2 months later I am still operating my business with my partner and can handle what seemed impossible before.  I am happy now at my company and can travel and still feel peace...My body feels no more pain and discomfort and those stomach pains are gone too! Ahh, what a massage can do when then body reconnects with the mind.  I knew that something bigger then I was happening when my music teacher mentioned that I was in the "flow". And my wife said how wonderful it is that I can now get along with her sister.  Never thought it was possible.  Now I know that I can change and be the change.

 

I am now a joyful scientist and still the owner of my company.

 

 

 

2. AFTER THIS BODY MIND SLOW MASSAGE AND TUNING IN PROCESS I AM MORE AWARE OF BEING CONNECTED, JOYFUL AND EVEN MORE ASSERTIVE WITH MY NEEDS. (THAT MEANS MORE BUSINESS)

 

I met Joanna and was actually looking at massage as a tool for wellness and change. I am a coach for midlifers.  I was totally surprised at how much and how pervasive a mind-body connection can be for feeling great in my body but also for my speaking profession. I felt so connected that I feel that i had an edge that will help me be a more powerful speaker.  Having this connection feels that I can do anything. Thank you for your quiet determination, Joanna.

 

 

 

3. I HAD PAINS IN MY ABDOMINAL AREA AND IN MY SHOULDERS AND FOUND OUT THAT I WAS CAUSING IT.

 

I am a young ambitious man, in early 30s man. I had digestive complaints and have gone to the naturopathic doctor already quite a few times and it has cost me quite a bundle yet I still am stressed and the body was not feeling right.  I was still having problems with my digestive unit and a painful shoulder.  Now after the massage, I realized that I needed to manage my stress and reconnect with my body. I already feel this deeper connection with me and life and that my tummy is very happy and my shoulder is so much better.  I actually felt the chi move during and after the massage. We are trying to solve problems and yet we forget that the body needs healing.. way to go Joanna. I am so happy that I found this wholesome new outlook on life and am empowered to look within and find how I can best accelerate my own healing powers.

 

 

 

4. PAIN GONE AFTER WEEKS OF DISCOMFORT. DOCTORS FOUND NOTHING IN MY DIAGNOSIS.

 

I work many hours and also help others improve their health naturally.  I believe that God is nature and everywhere.

It's been 2 weeks that I had a terrible pain in my bellybutton.  The doctors found nothing wrong. Yet this twisting was happening in my abs.  I had met Joanna before something told me that she can help.  This was such a strange thing happening...however her spiritual healing was very effective.  I left her clinic with no more pain.  You cannot believe how happy I was to be normal again.  She was using a Christian based approach that was very loving and allowed me to let go of my emotional pains too in this process.

 

 

 

5. I HAD VERY DAMP HANDS AND FEET AMONG OTHER THINGS AND NOW I CAN SHAKE HANDS WITHOUT SHAME

 

WHEN WE STARTED WORKING ON THE CAUSE, I WAS JUST CONFUSED SINCE I NEVER THOUGHT THAT I CAN BE ANY DIFFERENT BUT DAMP!  My feet were dripping!  After a couple of treatments my bladder was reacting and purging and I slept like a baby (which never happens).  I am no longer embarrassed and that was a miracle for me.  I am learning so much from this journey. in addition, she also gave me a diet for my particular issue.

 

 

 

6. AS WE WERE DOING THE MASSAGE, WE NOTICED THAT I WAS NOT ABLE TO LET GO, EVEN MY HEAD. We found there was an emotional blockage from my childhood, it was not just physical. 

 

I am so happy that I came to see Joanna since her acute perceptions opened up my stuck emotions due to my recent breakup.  I was able to know that the compressed state of my body was due to an earlier childhood incident that traumatized me. We were able to deal with that hurt from over 20 years ago and it enabled me to see the situation for what it is.  Life will no longer be the same.  My digestive is no longer acting up and acidic, there seems to be less emotional content.

 

 

 

7. I HAD MANY REGULAR  MASSAGES AND NEVER FELT ANY CHANGES WHETHER SMALL OR BIG.  I LIVE MOSTLY IN MY HEAD THUS I DID NOT EXPECT TO FEEL MUCH  HOWEVER I DID WANT TO PLAY HOCKEY WITHOUT ALL THE PAIN I FELT POST SPORT. I NO LONGER FEEL THE PAIN DURING RESTORATION PERIOD!

 

I am not a feeling person however when I noticed that after my hockey I had no pain, I was elated.  So now I know that bodywork can be also practical and very effective.  This massage is great for sports.

 

 

 

8. I play soccer with other mid-lifers and found that I NEEDED RECOVERY TIME for days. Now I don't need to! What freedom!  

I always stretch and prepare myself before the game. However after the game, you cannot prevent it, at least that is what I thought. After a few bodywork sessions, I was relieved of all the pain after playing sports! Try it and you will know for yourself.

 

 

 

9. I found that after the massage I am happier and smile easily.  This is a big change for me.

Since I work in a toxic environment, this BODY MIND MASSAGE THERAPY has enabled me to shift my internal and external environment and get better results.

 

 

 

10.  I had so much pain coming back home after a week of daily golfing in South Carolina and then got stuck in a very cramped airplane.

Joanna found out that the piriformis muscles were strained and particularly exacerbated by sitting.  I am happy to have found relief since I do a lot of exercises.

 

 

 

11. I came to see Joanna because I felt spiritual chaos.

I bought her special for 50.00/70 min so probably should have taken a longer session however I found her dialogue very helpful to sort things out in my life so that it makes sense. Thank you

 

 

 

12.  I have 5 chronic diseases and my mental overwork was not a good habit but found my journey with the body very worthwhile and helpful. 

I noticed that when I learned to tune in, miracles happened and I was even able to eat chili which was impossible.

 

 

 

13. I work  70 hours a week and not only I am tired but my back and knee were not healthy among other things.

I am so amazed at how revived I feel after a few sessions, the circulation is better, my back pain is reduced by at least 30% and I can keep up better with my workload.  This looks like just a beginning. I never felt anything in my previous massages.

 

 

 

14. I WAS VERY STRESSED FROM STORED UP TENSION over a couple of months.  I RUN MY OWN COMPANY.  I AM YOUNG AND HEALTHY BUT I FELT LIKE I WAS losing CONTROL.  I FELT SO GREAT INSIDE MY BODY AND SO CONNECTED THAT  A FEW SESSIONS SHIFTED ME COMPLETELY AND MY EXTERNAL ENVIRONMENT NO LONGER TRIGGERED ME.

 

 

15. I am a very sensitive person and I feel the energy. I  felt the energy of this nurturing massage and it deeply rewired and rebooted me.  I have more peace and have been more productive in managing my employees; they no longer trigger me to be stressed.  You cannot get this level of positive impact when you purchase a skin massage or go to China parlor who are not skillful in self-healing nor do they work with their heart. Thank you.

 

 

 

16. I am always busy and driving to meetings. I got used to stressing but the back pain was after 10 years becoming a nuisance which my stress levels could not handle any more.  I tried rmt and chiro...but this massage experience was totally different it actually restored me deeply and felt renewed.  Even during the massage the back pain was subdued and tamed.  It's so nice to feel my body and it is yummy btw.  Great to know that massage can go so far beyond the skin.  Alleluia! 

 

 

 

 

17. I had chronic back pain for 7 years at least an felt many sensations in my body.  I felt the pain leave, restoration, and also had a 60% reduction in my pain levels.  I was amazed since I have tried chiro and rmt but did not feel so great after the massage because they were not able to restore me at the same time.  I'ts is very worthwhile to experiment with this process..

 

 

 

18. I returned from Vietnam and after working a few days I had excruciating pain that was spreading in my body.  It seemed to be a neck pain but then realized as I was receiving massage I had pain in many places including my ribs.  I am happy that Joanna came to see me on New Year's day because I was so relieved of the pain and fatigue in 1.5 hours. My neck felt like steel and started to cause tension headaches.  I was always receiving Swedish rmt massage before but there was no pain relief. Being a single mom is necessary to be well in my body to be patient with my daughter.

 

 

 

19. After I purchased my new sports BMW, i had to go to massage therapy and chiro and spend a lot of money on therapy, since December 23rd.  My interior small space is causing my body a lot of problems which I thought were sciatica. I was not feeling the relief but couldn't put my finger on it what the solution would be like.  I researched and heard that Lomi Lomi would have a healing effect...I found Joanna and she patiently explained to me about self-healing even though my linear mind had great trouble has a hindsight... but I finally understood what is meant to restore during the massage.   I also understood how the body self-heals when the body spoke to me and made the connections. It was the most intimate reconnection with my body.   I found out that I had many tensions in my shoulders and many things triggered in my feet.  Surprisingly my need to control and my powerful mind was no longer competing for attention and I felt such freedom.

I am awed that I felt no pain when I walked out of the clinic! We need to go beyond thoughtless massage going through the motions.

 

 

 

20 I had rmt massages for over 10 years and never felt this good during and after a massage as with Joanna. It feels alive and rejuvenated and it happens right away after the massage. For example, I really like that she did the gluts area, it seems to release deep frustrations after sitting for years at an office job. It may sound funny but a massage is not a massage without the gluts.

21. I had what I thought was back pain for 10 years.  Now that I had several sessions and am better at least 20 % which is astonishing but it seems like the cause is not just my back.  We had done many scans and have found that the problem was caused by the abs and most likely the hernia! This has been the most self-reflective journey in my life but the fact is it's improving as I gain access to this body that I had forgotten for many years.  Being in my head does not help but I am learning to tune in and that is helping the process.

 

 

 

22. I am 50 years old. I just left a 70 hr week job and it took me months to recover from it.  I decided to resume with Joanna again and found now that I can actually feel the massage to such a heightened state.  I almost did not feel anything when I had that big workload!  I feel like an 18-year-old again! That feeling lasted over 2 weeks, it is unbelievable.  I now know that you can only feel young and pleasurable when you live a healthier life.  I need a massage to feel and stay young!

23. I had difficulty with my feet ..they felt numb. my doctor said it was neuropathy but had no other diseases!  I wanted to learn about mind-body focused massage when i came to Toronto. I am glad to have found Joanna since after another 700.00 of medical bills which included 5 minutes with the doctor I was not more knowledgeable about my condition nor any potential solution.  However several hours or treatment i was able to see results the same night. I had no more burning feet, which proved to me that i need to take care of my body naturally and massage was an excellent way to move the flow and the much-needed circulation.  I am now more hopeful or more positive change.

24. I had anxiety, cold sweats and extreme digestion issues with acid reflux and also headaches... Many things happened along the way as i received therapies.  There were distinct changes early in the stage and my anxiety stopped all week at another point all the headaches were gone.  These improvements gave me more reason to stay in Canada rather than leave. I have not felt good at all. but now I see changes every week and am happier.

25. IT job is too stressful.  and I found that the few pains left my body on the first 2 hours of therapy and never came back even after over a month.  Then as i learned how to let go, more benefits emerged.  I found my energy and mood improve ....became aware that my mental attitude was too intensely cogitative.  I learned that i can be less intense and be more joyful overall. my energies are funneled better.
