Jodie has been working in the health field for many years, volunteering in hospitals and rehab centers since a teenager. She began her health career at the Public Health Department in Montreal in 1997, conducting research and policy reforms. Preferring a 'hands on approach', she left the department in 2000 and began working as a natural health therapist ever since.
Because of many sports injuries, Jodie, began attending yoga classes and experimented with many different types of therapies to recover. Her studies reflect her favorite, most effective therapies and she is very happy to offer various treatmens to help her clients regain and maintain their optimal health.
Jodie was also the Founder/Director of Fondation Ambaa (www.ambaayoga.com) in Montreal, the province's first non-profit wellness centre that offered therapeutic movement classes for those living with chronic illnesses on a pay as you can basis. She also continues to do research about the effects of natural therapies on health and published a study that was conducted with the Cedar's Breast Clinic on yoga and breast cancer.
She is ecstatic with the Water Temple project, so that people can receive treatment in a beautiful setting and take time to relax in nature.
