Ginger Compress & Foot Routine

Wednesday 13th December 2023 @ 7.00pm (Irish time)

Foot routine with Ginger Compress.  There’s nothing better to feel well, relaxed and at peace than a massage. In this very special evening I will be guiding you through how to give yourself a foot massage to clear blockages and renew the body’s energy pathways with flowing energy and powerful life force.

Firstly we will learn the 3 Source points for the Yin Meridians
– Kidney 3
– Liver 3
– Spleen 3

These Source points allow us to re-energize the whole meridian as well as the associated organ. Like unblocking a spring, it lets the Qi/Chi rise to the surface and flow into the meridian.

To accompany the foot massage and acupressure points we will be learning to make and use a Hot Ginger Compress.

Ginger root is not only effective when taken internally, but externally it can bring pain relief and detoxification. When placed on the skin, it stimulates blood flow relieving tension and pain, clearing internal blockages.

This combination of acupressure and compress can help relieve colds, support good sleep and help calm the parasympathetic nervous system. In addition, it promotes circulation, reduces inflammation, and helps eliminate bacteria and viruses. Since ginger is both warming and energizing, it is especially helpful in cold weather.

Chi Flow with Jo Mid-Monthly evening talks take place on the middle Wednesday of each month, and cover a variety of wellness topics inspired by love and connection to a healthy body and mind.

All sessions are live and interactive, with space for questions and answers for your specific interests.

Can’t make it live? Don’t sweat. The session is recorded and sent straight to your inbox, so you can watch it anytime that suits!

Talks are hosted on Zoom and an access code will be sent to your email the day before the talk.  After the event, a recording of the talk will be sent to your email so you can watch again and again to practice the self-shiatsu or go back to any of the other information. So don’t worry;  you won’t miss out!


Recordings of past talks are available in the Chi Flow Members’ Library so members can watch and listen at their leisure.

Here’s what some women had to say after working with me …..

“Jo has helped me over a number of years. her knowledge and skills are second to none. She has eased severe Torticollis many years ago. She also has supported my system through recommended diet and shiatsu after Gall Bladder removal. A session with Jo is an escape from the madness of day to day life. It allows my body a chance to relax and recover. I always feel the benefits straight away but as the week continues I can see it more. My energy levels are up, my mood is brighter and I am calmer. Jo has a wealth of experience and has a natural ability to read a person’s needs. she tailors each session to your needs at that moment. Jo has supported me through two pregnancies and the postpartum period too. with all the changes in hormones and the physical body. I couldn’t recommend Jo more. She puts you at ease as soon as you walk through her door with her warmth and kindness. No matter your concerns. An ache in your back, reflux, low mood… Jo can help so reach out. I promise one session and you won’t look back!”
– Jen Crawford – Doula Care Ireland

“Healing for the body and the soul! Jo is absolutely amazing, not only as a practitioner but as a person too! I cannot recommend her highly enough! if you have never tried Shiatsu, please don’t hesitate a moment longer! Visits to Jo for treatment are a priority! We service our cars and our bodies are way more important than a car! Healing and relaxation and de-stress are just some of the benefits of a Shiatsu treatment with Jo! 5*****”

– Sharon Gunn

“Jo is the best. She’s intuitive, intelligent, compassionate and considerate. I got a wonderful Shiatsu massage and some great dietary advice. Highly recommend. Professional masseuses. Amazing results.”

– Mahesh Patrick Bridgeman

“I had the privilege of having a Shiatsu treatment with Joanne recently. She is both deeply caring and professional. She combines an intuitive, powerful, shiatsu treatment with supportive nutritional advice in a safe nurturing space. In one session I felt more alert and energised than I had for many months. I come with a complicated and serious medical history that she received in a professional and sensitive way. I felt heard and supported and for the first time in many months, I felt hopeful on leaving her treatment room. I highly recommend Joannes healing work, a treatment with her is a gift to both body and soul. Enjoy!”

The path to health is clear but it can be difficult to walk alone, especially if you balance a family, career and everything else life throws at you. Adding “one more thing” can be overwhelming especially if you are given too much information and you are not sure where to start. This can mean you go back to old habits, sticking with the devil you know. Falling back into quick snacks, too tired to move off the sofa, too defeated to think that anything can change. But your body is not outside your control. With my specialised support, we can understand what is at the root of wreaking havoc with your body and how we can fix it.
