Jo's journey began in 2006 with her own search to restore and recover. She had been supporting her son Matt’s journey through the special education system, who had autistic spectrum difficulties. Jo got lost between bureaucracy and overwhelm and needed to find herself again to feel better. Her search began. In researching therapies that would support both her son’s and her healing journey, she gathered a tool kit of practices that offer powerful release from emotional stress, physical stress, and trauma, safely and effectively. She has found all these tools personally healing.
