Jo Bond, a licensed acupuncturist from the United Kingdom, has joined the team at Cayman Rehab Services.
She said her treatment philosophy is to treat the whole person, addressing all aspects of her patients’ health.
“By forming a team with [my] patients, they are able to bring balance to all areas of the patients’ well-being, trusting that the body can essentially heal itself when gently brought into balance,” she said.
Ms. Bond graduated with a bachelor of science in acupuncture. As well as delivering a basis in anatomy and physiology, this four-year curriculum consisted of extensive training in acupuncture, practical clinical experience and adjunct therapies, which include Eastern nutrition, moxibustion, cupping and gua sha.
She followed up her studies in China, taking part in a postgraduate internship at the University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Chengdu, in the southwestern province of Sichuan, which brought added clinical experience.
Ms. Bond has also trained in reflexology under the guidance of a recognized Reiki master from China.
Ms. Bond has many years’ practice in acupuncture, starting with her own practice in Bristol, England.
She then moved on to work internationally on cruise ships, and also in medical spas on land.
Ms. Bond said she uses her skills in acupuncture to treat all types of pain conditions, arthritis, sciatica, stress, anxiety and emotional issues.
She also tackles conditions that affect sleep, skin, digestion and fertility.
She joined Cayman Rehab Services, based in the Eucalyptus Building on Shedden Road, last month.
