Kiiko's techniques have provided amazing results for gastrointestinal problems, cardiac conditions, flank pain, autonomic nervous system dominance (the feeling of "fight or flight"), inflammation, chronic pain conditions, and spinal imbalances, to name a few.

While studying in Los Angeles, Jody was concurrently working as a Certified Personal Trainer and has a broad base of knowledge in well-care with exercise.
