Your task is not to seek for Love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
— Rumi


I am passionate about working with individuals to release their negative patterns and emotional blockage and connect them with their innate healing wisdom and power. I feel grateful to accompany individuals on their healing journeys inward in ways that deeply honor who they are and their unique life experiences.

I believe wellness is a holistic integration of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being, and I am an advocate of personal growth and transformation.

The body-mind-spirit connection is undeniable. When we chronically repress our emotions (anger, shame, guilt, rage, remorse, unworthiness, etc.) as a way to cope with life, these repressed emotions could manifest as physical symptoms if left unacknowledged, and these physical symptoms could manifest into chronic conditions eventually to desperately get our attention. Unhealed emotional wounds also numb our positive emotions like joy, enthusiasm, and excitement. Our thoughts and attitude affect how we live and love. I believe healing our emotional wounds and releasing negative thought patterns are an integral part of healing our body and spirit.

Essence Healing™ is a holistic healing approach I developed which consists of three components: Energy Therapy, Guided Meditation, and Visualization. It focuses on processing the physiological imprints of anxiety, stress, trauma, and pain stored in our body with Energy Therapy and it aims at releasing our repressed emotions and negative programing by reconditioning our subconscious mind with positive thought patterns and new perspectives with Guided Meditation and Visualization in a trance.

The reason I developed this holistic healing approach is that I have learned that the energetic shift I can create in individuals through energy therapy will not be long-lasting unless I can also help them process their emotional pain and overcome negative thought patterns by working with their subconscious mind.

I believe joy is our natural state and light is the essence of our being. When we align all aspects of who we are as multidimensional beings, we radiate our authenticity effortlessly to create meaningful impact and attract what we desire in the world.

My training includes the study of various energy healing techniques (including Shamanic Healing, Reiki, Ancestral Lineage Clearing, Inner Child Healing and Vocal Toning), Ericksonian Hypnosis Master Practitioner program, Vipassana Meditation, Neuro-linguistic Programing (NLP) Master Practitioner program and The School of The Art Institute of Chicago for Bachelor of Fine Arts program.

I was born in Taiwan and first immigrated to South America as a young teen and later on immigrated to the United States in the 90s. I have lived in Chicago, Los Angeles, and the Bay Area. I currently reside in NYC.

I enjoy nature, meditation, metaphysics, indigenous spirituality, Buddhist and Taoist philosophies, whole food plant-based diet, yoga, drumming, dancing, jazz, exploring my consciousness and the unknown.

“There are so many beautiful things that could be said about my experience with Jo’s energy healing, so I choose to highlight only a few; some of them deal with what I experienced during the sessions with her; others, with the feelings I had after each session; and others, with Jo as a person, and an energy healer.

1. The space that Jo was able to create for each session felt safe and welcoming.

2. During each session, Jo was able to create a safe and harmonious sanctuary in my mind, where I learned to “go” whenever I feel stressed, anxious, and out of balance.

3. By working with Jo I learned simple but valuable tools for diminishing my level of anxiety at the workplace and in social settings, which I can use whenever I want, wherever I am.

4. After each session I had with Jo, I achieved a deep sense of calm and peace, and whichever anxiety I had before, disappeared.

5. One of the most remarkable things that occurred after working with Jo has been experiencing an improvement of my overall mood, and not in an episodic manner: the disposition I acquired thanks to Jo has become the default mode of my psychological and spiritual state.

6. I think that the healing energy sessions were so successful because of what Jo is able to create, transmit to and evoke in her client. Jo is a remarkable person; she is inventive, insightful, empathic and compassionate. Her guidance during session is easy to follow, and offered in an unobtrusive and calm way. Each combination of methods she adopted with me was performed seamlessly and with great expertise.

For those seeking to develop a rich and nourishing sense of peace, and to learn strategies for keeping this sense of peace amid the stress and anxiety of daily life, Jo’s energy healing sessions are ideal. I recommend them completely and unreservedly.“ - Monica C.


“I had two sessions with Jo and I appreciate her dedication to helping me getting clarity about my life’s work and regaining perspective. I feel so lucky to have had an incredible experience with her. In providing a space of respectfulness, love and openness for me during trance I remembered a dream. It was a dream I suddenly knew it was in my heart since I was born but was always afraid of living it because it is so extraordinary and big for me.

With Jo’s presence and guidance I began to trust my inner voice and allowed the mental imagery to evolve. After this experience my daily life got a completely new focus and even my eating habits changed. For me there is no doubt: Jo is a generous and capable energy transformer. What a blessing for humanity!

I am really grateful to have found such a great soul.“ - Karin K.
