Jo is passionate about educating her patients about the cause of their health concerns, to help them to take control of their health and long-term wellbeing. She often utilises a combination of the latest scientific testing using blood, urine, saliva, DNA, hair tissue mineral analysis and stool tests. The results provide essential information to assist her in the treatment and management of a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions, for patients seeking a holistic approach to health.
Jo achieves fantastic results by allowing time to really listen to her patients, testing appropriately and a thorough medical history.

Jo has a special interest in DNA Genomic Wellness testing. By doing a simple one-only saliva test you can discover your DNA blueprint and learn how well your genes are matched to your present diet and lifestyle as well as how you can unlock the full potential of your current and future health and wellness. Jo can help create gene-specific dietary guidelines to help you choose the correct foods for your genotype.
Jo also practices Bowen Therapy which is a form of soft tissue or fascial manipulation which can often be the underlying cause or source of many musculoskeletal, neurological, neuromuscular and other health or pain problems. The principal benefits of Bowen Therapy are the often rapid and long term or permanent remission from pain, reduced stress, greater mobility and improved physical and emotional quality and enjoyment of life. Additional benefits can include increased energy, rebalancing of the body, improved circulation and detoxification.
