About Joanne Oliver

I still love this work after 20 years and am as passionate as ever about the amazing system of natural health and vitality that I teach and share with anyone who works with me.

Joanne Oliver

I’m called Jo by all my friends and clients, and I hope that an appointment with me is professional but informal, relaxed and yet all about learning………learning more about the body you have and how you can support it so that it works the best it can.

As far back as I can remember I loved to research, to learn and was always curious and open to explore and find out more. For many years now I have studied and researched herbal medicine, how the body works, wonderful natural healers from around the world, the power of the mind and self-development.

I was always ‘sensitive’ which lead to philosophy and esoteric study and at a young age I had a personal spiritual wake-up call. I call this intuition, these days it’s a just part of who I am and like all our other senses I use it all the time but especially in my work.

No matter if it is my experience, my research or my intuition that you seek I can promise that my goal is always the same; to empower, support and inspire you to discover greater health, happiness and peace in your body.

Why I believe I can help you

I know how it feels to have a body that just won’t work properly. The frustration; the constant hope that tomorrow you will feel better; hating my body; wondering what I was doing wrong, and the sheer dismal experience of living with a body that is not happy. I suffered poor health from childhood; allergies, endometriosis, Fibroids, IBS, arthritis, constant sinus and UTI infections and nutritional deficiencies and a fairly grey outlook on life.

My personal journey to health included over 4 years training to become a Herbalist and then over 15 years continuing to research, study and most important of all – put into practice. So what I offer is years of experience both personal and in clinic with hundreds of clients. My clients have been my best teachers; it is in the adapting of ‘text-book’ knowledge into real people’s lives that is actually where the real magic and depth of my work is most rewarding.

Currently I have maintained better health at 50 than at 20, and have helped hundreds of other people to learn how to do this too.

I discovered 2 insights that made health, happiness and how to create more of both fall into place;jo

  • Your body is unique in many subtle but important ways and armed with this knowledge you hold a key to unlocking faster results.
  • Your body knows exactly what it needs in every moment to function better

For many years I worked with a wide range of people and health conditions constantly researching and delving deeper into these 2 insights and then finding practical ways that worked naturally.

What I wish for you

My wish is to provide you with useful and practical information about your own unique body; to understand that what makes you unique is not only special but holds the key to creating and maintaining health and happiness.

It is always a fascinating honour to be part of this work and a joy to share it with each new client. Most of my therapies are little known and combine maps of the body with the unseen subtle energies and I do feel privileged to have been in the right place to learn them and share with others.

I love the idea of kitchen medicine and healing from home and the more I study the more amazing I believe simple plant medicine is. I have never been a chef or gardener and so I am proof that you can live (and thrive) this way with limited cookery skills and a few pots of herbs and a wild weed or two!

When not in clinic or teaching reflex touch to students, I can be found walking in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside with my dog Sox, or sat at my computer researching natural medicine and exploring my personal spiritual path. I am also a modern single mum, who juggles a busy (private) life with all the normal ups and downs including practicing my own daily self-care practices.
