”Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease."

~ Hippocrates


Healing treatments from Courage Mountain Acupuncture: Open the flow of your life-force energy meridians so that Nature can do the healing.

What an incredible gift to have practiced and taught classical acupuncture for over 40 years, helped so many clients... and it has also helped me age with great vitality!

Though I am also focusing on empowering healers to have business success using the 5 Element energetic Principles, I still love providing acupuncture and acupressure treatments.

Classical 5 Element Acupuncture 

Supports and enhances your innate ability to heal as nature intended. CFEA treats the root cause of symptoms, helping to remedy small concerns before they manifest into bigger health problems or diseases.

"Your needleless acupuncture treatment was extraordinary. I wish that everyone in the WORLD could experience healing energies as profoundly nourishing as yours.... with love and gratitude"

Zero Balancing Structural Acupressure:

 "I've had asthma since age two and was told I'd have to be on medications for the rest of my life. Since seeing Johanna, I rarely need medication and I feel great. This is what healthy people get to feel like!"



Danielle Bayert, music teacher, Lakewood, CO


 "As a result of Johanna’s many years of experience, combined with her compassion and deeply intuitive abilities, she has helped me remain mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually healthy. She has helped my immune system stay strong. Several times I was starting to fall sick, and her treatment completely pulled me back to a healthy state again. I am deeply indebted to Johanna for bestowing on me her loving care and profound wisdom. I highly recommend Johanna to anyone wanting ‘only the best."
