Joanne Corroto RN, BSN, LMT is from Youngstown, Ohio, moving to the Central Ohio area in 1976. While working in all areas of nursing the past 40 years, I have been drawn to the alternative healing modalities as Western medicine only had pills to offer for my struggles with autoimmune issues. My passion for learning drives me to leave no stone unturned to find out the root cause of imbalances. Meridian Stress Assessment with the Bio Scan Unit allows me to empower clients in finding answers moving toward wellness. Bringing the body back into balance allows the body to heal.
