What our clients are saying:

Practicing yoga with J, I walk out a better person. With over 20 years doing yoga, the past five with J, I can attest that what endears me to J as a yogi and teacher is her classes’ interweaving the yoga good for my body with the spiritual coaching good for my soul, making my Saturday mornings with her like trans-denominational church: unique among so many modern yoga classes that have become purely physical. Too, I appreciate J’s sagacity. In a valley replete with yoga teachers, many young, this lady’s been around: she’s a retired civil rights lawyer, a highly-trained yogi, an experienced mom, a survivor of tough times, and an adventurer of the heart. She has much wisdom and expertise to share for those ready for more than your typical yoga class.
Jenn Dorfield, South Hadley, Jan. 7, 2015
After years of living in pain with temporal mandible joint disfunction (“TMJD”), and spending money and time at various doctors, I continued to be in pain.  Even though I was treated by my general practitioner, physical therapists, a regular dentist and a dentist who specialized in jaw problems, it was unsuccessful & I did not get any relief from my pain. It wasn’t until I saw John for CranioSacral Therapy that I am finally Pain Free! Thank you John!

I am grateful to be a client of John’s for many years… He is a superb clinician-professional, caring, knowledgeable with steady, intuitive healing energy. I enjoy John’s deep tissue massage and focus on stressed areas of my body. He is very perceptive and skillful at releasing parts of my body that are misaligned and/or in pain. Over the years, John’s skillful hands have helped me tremendously with healing herniated discs, a torn rotator cuff and a detached bicep. After each treatment, I leave feeling amazed!
