“Johanna has been my Classical Five-Element Acupuncture practitioner for the past three years. As a result of her many years of experience, combined with her compassion and deeply intuitive abilities, she has helped me remain mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually healthy. She has helped my immune system stay strong. Several times I was starting to fall sick, and her treatment completely pulled me back to a healthy state again. I am deeply indebted to Johanna for bestowing on me her loving care and profound wisdom. I highly recommend Johanna to anyone wanting ‘only the best.”
Jim Brooks, M.D., Fairfield, IA

"I have been receiving treatments from Johanna for over 30 years. I would not be without my monthly dose of her skillful support of the vitality, spirit, and optimism I rely on to thrive in my life and work. I'm so grateful Johanna offers this means to help me age gracefully and adventurously."
Leland Williams, English Professor, Goodland, Kansas

"I have deep appreciation and gratitude for both you and Five-Element Acupuncture. I suffered with chronic migraine headaches for 50 years, took a multitude of prescription medications, and still had to learn to live with the pain. In the 4 short months that I have been working with you, I have reduced my preventative medications as well as my emergency medications nearly 100%, and I no longer have chronic migraines. My little pill box that was once filled with pharmaceuticals now holds supplements. Thank you so much for your help and your genuine caring."
Jeri B. Innis.

"Coming to Johanna has added at least 10 quality years to my life."
Tom Kalinski, ReMax Realtor, Boulder, CO

"This work has been a key factor in my being able to attain and maintain a state of physical and mental well-being."
Dr. James Ray, DC, Chiropractor and Naturopath, Louisville, CO

"I've had asthma since age two and was told I'd have to be on medications for the rest of my life. Since seeing Johanna, I rarely need medication and I feel great. This is what healthy people get to feel like!"
Danielle Bayert, music teacher, Lakewood, CO

“I've been living with M.S. for 16 years. For almost all of that time, while working with Johanna, I have been in remission. She helps keep me centered in body, mind and spirit.”
Shirley Visser, Longmont, CO

“I've had two aorta operations. Johanna's work has helped me continue a healthy, active lifestyle for 11 years.”

“I have been to Johanna for treatments for over 20 years. I love that she sits and listens; that she takes time. Johanna is a practitioner who brings the experience, wisdom, care, and unconventional insight of a master healer to her work. I have seen the results and even though I no longer live in Boulder, I continue to see her.”
Laurie Doctor, artist, calligrapher, teacher, Louisville, KY

“I really love this work. It genuinely feeds my soul, just as it strengthens me physically, deepens my rest, and significantly enhances my overall health and well-being. I recommend this traditional medicine without reservation.”
M.T., lawyer, mediator, contemplative artist, Boulder, CO

“I have chronic health problems, including low bone density and an autoimmune condition. Johanna's careful and caring work and advice have improved my health and added immeasurably to my overall energy and quality of life.”
Jane, scientist, professor, consultant, Boulder, CO

“I've been seeing Johanna for treatments for 13 years and I continue to be amazed at how quickly and well her treatments work. Often I go in with my stomach feeling like it's tied in knots, and then come out feeling totally different, calm and relaxed. She clearly knows what she is doing!”
Dave Slayton, Chinese Classics Scholar and computer programmer, Denver, CO
