As a healer, Joanne Brohmer offers a range of modalities that helps others enter into their own depth and set their anchor deeper, where they can begin to claim and feel what has been hard to reach. She helps bring what has been blocked forward into the safe home of acceptance and embrace. She facilitates bringing others to that soft, open, vulnerable place in a way that feels safe.
Joanne has been a Reiki Master for 18 years and found this modality to be the most powerful, profound and gentle healing technique. She also offers Craniosacral Therapy, Integrated Energy Therapy and Deep Tissue Massage.
Born with a keen sensitivity and empathy, Joanne also been an Intuitive Reader for 13 years and brings this insight into healing sessions. She has also been teaching Reiki and meditation for 15 years.
Joanne received her RYT Yoga teacher training in Hatha Yoga in India in 2006 and has been teaching Yin and restorative Yoga for 8 years. She says: “I find this style creates an opportunity to deeply feel into those deeper layers of self, slow down and get inside of the connective tissues that tend to shorten and contract through the aging process. Since these poses are on the floor and are held for longer periods, I also offer hands-on Reiki to students while in the poses. I also incorporate meditation and guided visualization to deepen the experience.”
Joanne is also a trained Family Constellation facilitator, a type of group work that helps to heal family systems. For more information on the modalities she uses, and her training, please visit her website at www.innerfirehealing.com.
