Jo has been a member of IFPA (International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists) since 1996.
Her passion is for understanding how the body works, looking at why it sometimes goes wrong and trying to help it get better and work more efficiently – whether it be trying to reduce migraines for a stressed office worker or improve muscle condition for a runner. She enjoys making people feel better and helping them recover from injury or illness.
Jo practises several massage therapies which provide her with varied work. This has given her experience in treating a wide range of conditions.
She has been working in Wetherby for 17 years so has built up a long standing reputation. She has also gained a lot of experience over that time, working in various settings including GP practices and complimentary health clinics.
Jo’s training in various massage techniques means that her clients can benefit from a treatment which integrates elements from different specialisms depending on their needs.
She participates in lots of sporting activities and particularly likes running and cycling. Jo has four children which makes for a busy life!
