I just wanted to let you know about Jo. She has supported my son with his retained reflexes ( when we first saw her, she assessed him and said they are still present). These reflexes are supposed to go from 8/9 Months. She has unlocked those trapped pathways using a brushing therapy which has made much of an improvement in they way he is able to express himself and also make sense of the world more. Have a look at her link below, she’s a lovely lady and my son loves to come and see her. She has a wealth of knowledge and you can see from her reviews she is 5 star all the way!
Jo was introduced to me when my daughter who was then a teenager had some symptoms that my osteopath spotted during a treatment. Jo was so helpful in explaining what she was looking for - the likely causes and or triggers for what she was experiencing- and it unlocked both physical and emotional healing. The skills that followed over the next 5 years from that initial work and the curiosity to keep learning about how her body works has been monumental for my daughter to better understand her physical symptoms and how they connect to some of her ability to influence her physical, emotional and mental well-being.
Jo is a very warm caring lady who really wants to help the people she treats. My boys love Jo, she is very professional and takes her time to explain exactly what things mean and whats shes doing.. We have seen great results in my boys confidence, being able to speak up for themselves, less anxiety, positive changes in behaviours and they are happier children. I would highly recommend Jo to any parent or person who thinks they may have retained reflexes.
I took my daughter to see Jo around a year ago, we have been working with her monthly during this time, from the initial consultation Jo took the time to talk to my daughter directly to ensure they established a good relationship and listen to her working through our concerns. She explained the process to her so she understood what we were doing and why, then showed her the retained reflexes explaining them as she did, as the months passed and we re checked our progress the difference in the reflexes was staggering. I gave my daughter the option to stop on many an occasion but she expressed that she had felt a difference and wanted to continue, she looks forward to our appointments and has developed her own rapport with Jo. I have recommend Jo to numerous people already for a variety of concerns from insomnia, anxiety, and general behaviour.
We heard of Jo from my son’s reception teacher who identified that he was struggling with keeping up with milestones. I have twins that were born 3 months early and Jo was amazing in explaining that they had retained a lot of their baby reflexes. She has been working with them over a year and the changes we noticed were phenomenal. She explained how one reflex needs to be switched on to then trigger another to aid in the natural development of children. We started off with gentle brush strokes on the back. Jo is amazing - very calm, approachable and fantastic with kids. Without Jo’s intervention, the twins would be still struggling. I highly recommended her and her NDT treatment.
My eldest son is dyslexic and can be very emotional. He has been seeing Jo for around a year and her therapies have had a significant impact on his behaviours. Prior to seeing Jo he had done Vision Therapy and endless Occupational Therapy with little success and I feel that Jo’s therapies are slowly, but surely, fixing the underlying problems these more ‘conventional’ treatments have failed to address. His emotional control is improving, his resilience, while still variable, has improved, his eye tracking is now great and he can now hold a pencil correctly – something the OT and school had given up on. Most extraordinarily of all, he no longer feels the need to fidget or move constantly which we had always been a feature of his waking hours. In short it feels as though he has matured about three years in the space of one – and I am hopeful that there are more improvements to come as we continue to work through the various treatments I am not naturally drawn to ‘alternative’ therapies but I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Jo to anyone who feels that their child is not thriving or ‘fitting in’ as well as they could – she has a great way with children and, while I don’t pretend to understand the details of what she is doing, the results are unarguable!
