Luke’s most recent passion is facial rejuvenation acupuncture. While only fairly new on the scene in a western sense, In ancient times, using acupuncture was the way women in elite Chinese households would stay youthful and glowing. After studying the facial rejuventation methods, Luke & his wife agreed to use her as a test case and they were both amazed and impressed with the results! In an era so heavily burdened with chemicals in our beauty products (among everything else) he saw a way forward for those wanting to look as good as they can, with clear complexion, minimal fine lines and wrinkles and a lovely natural glowing vitality, all without chemicals, surgery or injectables. This passion has led to the newest arm of our acupuncture treatment at WSW – facial rejuvenation acupuncture.

志’, pronounced Zhi is the Chinese character that carries the meaning of Innate Wisdom, Will and Purpose. These virtues exists within each and every one of us.
Jo’s studies in the field of the Body/Mind/Spirit connection has shaped her belief in seeing all physical and emotional stress as reminders from our Innate Self. These reminders prompts us to change certain aspects of our lives that are no longer serving us. It is therefore her genuine desire to go beyond assisting clients in healing surface level symptoms.Read more...
Addressing the root cause of one’s constitutional disharmonies is what gives way to transformational shifts. When we are able to regain balance across the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of our being, we clear the blockages that prevents us from living to our greatest potential.
As a Food Scientist, Jo has worked for some of the world’s largest food and beverage companies for over a decade but it wasn’t until she experienced kinesiology that she realised that she had found her true passion and purpose. That purpose is to empower others to thrive in life through the re-connection with their Core, enabling one to freely and fully express their authentic selves.
