Jan Harazda -Rn, LMT
hoshino therapy, lmt, therapy for musculoskeletal disorders, chronic pain, aging, back, neck and joint painMy mission is the same as Professor Hoshino’s: To help people be physically independent and able to do what they love as long as possible. It is because of Hoshino Therapy® that I am able to work as hard as I do and enjoy my favorite activities such as contra dancing, surfing and hiking. In the past, when I danced, I suffered from dizziness, but this is no longer a problem, and I attribute this to what I have learned from Hoshino and the Hoshino Clinic in Miami.As a Registered Nurse for 23 years, I loved my role as patient advocate and caregiver, and always strived to make my patients’ experiences as positive, comfortable, and safe as possible. I worked in many different specialty areas, including cardiology, orthopedics, labor and delivery, maternity, pediatrics, psychiatry, oncology, and ambulatory surgery. However, I knew from the outset that I was looking for some unique area of healthcare  that would have deep personal meaning to me as well as to my clients.

I learned about Hoshino Therapy® in 1977 just as I was beginning my nursing career. As soon as I began working full-time as a staff nurse on a  busy hospital ward, I developed serious foot and neck problems. Read More.
