    "John is amazing! He is extremely knowledgeable and takes time every session to really get to know how you're doing. The acupuncture, massage, and vibration with tuning forks combination is one of the most relaxing things I've ever experienced. I intend on getting acupuncture from John at least once a month for the foreseeable future. "

    John is the best healer I have ever been to. His massage and acupuncture techniques are amazing! I have gone to see him several times with different issues from back pain, insomnia, and severe neck and shoulder pain. He has been able to provide me relief each time. I highly recommend him for massage and/or acupuncture.

    John is an amazing blessing. For almost two years I have been seeing John 1-2 times per month. His service of acupuncture and bodywork is truly a beautiful combination. He is intuitively responsive, creates a comfortable and relaxing environment, and is a professional/ experienced healer. He has helped (and continues to guide) me to work through stress, acne, and in general healing through self care and awareness. I highly recommend John if you are looking for a holistic healing experience!

    John is the most amazing massage therapist. Beyond massage, he truly is a healer. He brings his gifts and intuition to his work which always leaves me feeling like a new person when I get off the table. He is so good that I even trusted him to do acupuncture which scares me. lol John made me feel comfortable and now I am not afraid of this modality of healing. If you want someone who cares AND listens to your body, John is your person. He doesn't just do a "standard" massage, he is connected to you and what your body needs to heal. Thank you John for being one of the best parts of my healing journey.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I offer a free 15 minute consultation to evaluate if we are the right fit.  After that we book an initial visit for any of my treatments. You will receive a comprehensive intake form, that can be easily filled with your device, but you can choose to fill it up in paper during your first visit where you will receive an initial asesessment, followed by treatment. After that visit you will receive a review of findings and recommendations of a course of treatment (acupuncture, massage, herbs, exercise, lifestyle modifications, etc).  You have direct access to me via text message with any questions throughout the process.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Qualifications are important, research available reviews and if you feel safe with it, try a visit. The best way to know if this type of approach works for you is to experience it.  

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Make a list of all the issues affecting you, take some time to think of the kind of support you feel you need. Think about what you like and don't like regarding touch and health.
