Her work may be that rare thing: a perfect marriage of East and West.
Deemed “phenomenal” by a client, osteopath and Chi Nei Tsang practitioner Jo’s affinity with Asian healing traditions led her to devote seven years to fulltime study and travel in Thailand and China.
Jo did not have your average massage training – no white coats, wellness spaces or oil diffusers.
Home in Thailand was a small rickety wooden house, from where she was taken under the wing of a monk whose day job of conducting exorcism ceremonies allowed Jo to witness first-hand the power of collective, community-orientated healing practice. This foundation informs Jo’s current work in community wellbeing and social prescription projects and in her clinical practice:
She trusts the magic of shared space.
Regularly referred to as an intuitive practitioner, Jo herself eschews this description, feeling that it belongs more properly to her Thai Massage teacher, Ajahn Pichest who she considers a shamanic healer in the truest sense. She herself is merely “following my hands”, as she says; osteopathy provides an alternative, complementary framework that allows her to apply knowledge to what she senses, thereby fusing intuitive experience with clinical know-how.
“It is an absolute joy to have a massage with Jo Lim….she has a still and gentle quality about her. Jo is highly intuitive which makes her treatments simply magical – like no other I have experienced. ”
Based in our Camden centres Jo has a special focus on abdominal issues including stomach pain, digestive problems, and menstrual dysfunction, and she particularly enjoys working with women during pregnancy. Jo’s treatments explore the connection between internal organs, posture, health and emotional balance.
She qualified in 2016 from the British School of Osteopathic Medicine after practicing as a Thai Massage Therapist for over 10 years. After graduating, she taught visceral osteopathy at BCOM. Jo also practices Thai Massage, Shiatsu and Craniosacral therapy. See her full schedule at triyoga here.
