“The session was really emotionally moving and healing for me. From her mastery and incredible intuition of tuning into vibrations in my body she managed to help emerge some hidden emotions related to my family history trapped in my body and freedthem..it was so liberating… This is when I understood the huge power of sound vibrations: you don’t need much to trigger huge effects. 
I highly recommend Josephine - she is a truly sensitive practitioner who has great care and professionalism for her receivers! I will without a doubt do other more profound healings with her!” ~ Ēmilie Guillon, France

“The Universe brought Josephine and I together on a Viking cruise just after I had retired.  Josephine was on board as a guest expert practitioner for the spa. Her programs changed my mind, body and spirit. For the body, her Yin yoga exercises provided increased flexibility almost immediately.  For the mind, Josephine’s evening meditations allowed all levels of meditators to experience peace and calm.  For my spirit, Josephine’s energy healing sessions revealed my retirement life path to be way beyond anything I could have imagined. I am so grateful for Jo’s gentle energy leading me to my true life path.  I am very grateful to have worked with Josephine.”~ Mary Madill, USA
