Hi, I’m Jo and I created Mind & Body Therapy in 2020. The goal is to have a place to come where your Mind and Body both get the support they require.

I offer therapeutic massage using Tui Balm waxes. Therapeutic massage is good for relaxation, de-stressing, lymphatic drainage and for working on those extra knotty bits.

I am also a third-year counselling student at NMIT. I get a lot of gratification from my counselling placements in the community.

If you are looking for a counsellor and would like to discuss options for working with me, please don’t hesitate to call or message me anytime.

Mind and Body Therapy offers a holistic approach to wellbeing. Jo understands the inter-connectedness of Mental and Physical wellbeing, which is why she offers both massage therapy and counselling.

For some clients, the opportunity to offload and destress through counselling has a greater impact if they can have a massage to clear the physical stress away as well.

Counselling and Massage are never combined in the same session. Long term Counselling clients will be able to access massage when their counselling has ended, and a certain time period has elapsed. Jo is happy to discuss this further as required.


Take some time for yourself and book in for a therapeutic massage.

Conveniently located in the Nelson CBD, come to my tranquil room for relaxation or hot stone massage. Leave feeling refreshed.

“Jo is a fantastic massage therapist – and really makes the effort to make you feel so welcome and so at ease. Her use of natural Tui balms is a godsend – and I left my session with her floating on a cloud! Rated 10/10 and would highly recommend!”

“I have been to see Jo for both massages and counselling. The massages were amazing, I felt comfortable and left feeling relaxed and calm. With the counselling I felt safe and was able to discuss and get support with the situation I was dealing with at the time. I am eternally grateful for Jo and the services she is able to provide during what has been an incredibly difficult twelve months, I will definitely be booking again and would recommend her services to anyone, thank you again.”

“Jo is Wonderful. I started out with just the occasional massage and very quickly ended up with regular 3 weekly sessions.  I feel comfortable with Jo.  Jo listens to what I want – the massages are amazing.  I always come away completely relaxed yet refreshed.”

“I regularly go to Jo at Mind and body therapy for relaxation massages. Jo makes me feel comfortable so I am able to relax so my body can fully reap all the benefits. I walk in with a stressed body and tight muscles and leave feeling revived, refreshed and relaxed. Definitely recommend Jo – her magic touch truly works for me!”
