Look well to the spine for the cause of disease


Judy Johnson, LMT

Judy studied and qualified as a Massage Therapist in Long Island, NY in 1988 and as a Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner in 2012.

She feels blessed to be able to bring relief to her clients through the combination of modern physical and ancient metaphysical therapies. Each day she can help clients alleviate their pain or remove their anxiety gives her the energy to keep on doing what she does. It has become her passion.

Judy tailor’s each session of treatment to prioritize client’s specific needs at that moment in time. Thus, each session is different and involves a variety of therapeutic techniques based on the consultation, physical findings and intuitive guidance.

It’s truly important, if not critical, that the client is encouraged to open up and share their experiences. She has learned over the years that open dialogue is an integral part of the healing process.
