A Message from MaryJo Johnson

Licensed Acupuncturist and Massage Therapist
Diplomate Traditional Oriental Medicine
Masters of Divinity

I have re-visioned my work in response to COVID-19. My office is open in a new way. There are too many questions still unanswered about the short and long term impact of this virus on vulnerable populations to risk spending the extended periods of time in enclosed spaces with people that I used to spend. I am available to people individually and in groups outdoors, on the phone and online instead on weekdays between 11 and 5, or by appointment. My primary goal is to use my knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine, herbs and nutrition, chronic disease self-management, and pastoral counseling (non-sectarian) to help people to choose, focus, and implement their own daily health practices. I can't cure COVID-19 or prevent its spread. What I can do is inspire and encourage people to change their lives so that during this or any future pandemic it's more likely that they will experience mild, if any, symptoms of infection. Research points to chronic conditions and age being associated with increased risk of severe illness. It's possible to prevent or reverse chronic conditions and premature aging, but if it was easy, everyone would be doing it! That's why I have designed this website with an associated app, blog and forum; and am offering personal and group online sessions to assist you in becoming well-informed, inspired and equipped to to carry out your best intentions toward good health.
