Janne Gibbs, RN/FNP-BC, MSN, AHN-BC, HWNC-BC, HTPTrillium Healing & Arts - find the way to Master Your Chronic Pain
Currently, I am majorly involved in seeing clients with chronic pain, assisting them in becoming the master of their pain management and healing, thereby finding greater comfort and joy in their lives. I assist a Holistic/Integrative Family Practice MD, by co-facilitating weekly pain groups and seeing her clients, 1:1 for chronic pain issues and healing. In addition, I see clients virtually and locally in my separate private holistic nursing/coach practice (Trillium Healing & Arts). Presently, I am also enrolling clients in my own chronic pain groups (local and virtual – dependent upon client needs and location), where clients will learn and integrate healing strategies and holistic modalities to obtain greater comfort and quality of living.
I am an AHNCC board-certified Advanced Holistic Nurse, a licensed Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), an ANCC board-certified Pain Specialist, an AHNCC board certified Integral Holistic Health & Wellness Coach, a certified Interactive Guided Imagery Practitioner, a Healing Touch/Therapeutic Touch Practitioner, a Reiki Master, a Nurse Healer, an AHNA Networker for Humboldt County, a local, regional, and national workshop presenter, and the owner of Trillium Healing & Arts.
I have been a registered nurse for over 45 years, a family nurse practitioner for over 20 years, a nurse educator at College of the Redwoods for over 30 years, a part-time FNP at North Country Clinic for over 10 years (where cared for clients 1:1 with chronic pain). I also served as an officer and military nurse in the Army Nurse Corp during the Vietnam War for 2 years. And, I have over 30 years of experience working with clients, where I integrate my many varied, effective holistic/integrative tools to help clients handle their pain and other plaguing symptoms, such as fatigue, anxiety, etc. For example, I have developed some very specific, effective strategies, utilizing imagery and energy work, for clients plagued with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, helping them function better and with less pain and fatigue when going out in social gatherings and embracing life.
I utilize many integral, holistic tools, such as interactive guided imagery, energy work, the 1-10 scale, Search for Purpose, Story, Glove Anesthesia, Inner Advisor, parts work, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT/tapping), affirmations, positive neuroplasticity, resonance (holographic) re-patterning techniques, etc, to help facilitate the process with individuals, helping them better manage their chronic pain symptoms.
I believe each person has his/her own best wisdom, answers, and personal strengths for solving problems and healing, but may be challenged at times in accessing and/or trusting in them. I also believe in the importance of human connection, and in holding the meaningful space for personal exploration and inner healing. I have helped many people with pain and symptom management, personal health and/or life challenges, death, dying, and grief/bereavement support, surgery/procedure preparation and recovery, and personal self-empowerment.
And lastly, I believe that my most difficult personal life challenges and life-threatening physical experiences have helped provide me with my greatest insights and most profound personal and spiritual growth, thereby amplifying my empathic and transpersonal connection and sense of knowing with others.
Testimonials:Testimonial #1 (Susan H, 69 yo with fibromyalgia, fatigue, breast cancer): Before being referred to Janne Gibbs for energy work, I had tried to work through my years-long chronic pain and fatigue with massage, pain pills, pain relief patches, gel and cortisone injections in my shoulder and knee, physical therapy, therapeutic yoga, and exercises of my own. Each one of these attempts brought some temporary relief. But it was never enough relief nor was it sufficiently long enough to keep me from falling into states of despair and even depression from time to time, feeling overwhelmed by the demands on my physical self which in turn negatively affected my mental and spiritual self. Energy work and Healing Touch were new modalities to me, so I met with Janne the first time with no expectations. From the very first session, I felt empowered by her willingness to listen to me non-judgmentally and by the way she offered different ways of approaching healing. Also, I was encouraged and enlightened by the gifts of Healing Touch and most especially with the gift of Guided Imagery she shared with me. We had almost-weekly sessions for 6 months, and with her loving guidance, I was able to move through many difficult problems. Every session left me feeling lighter and stronger, happier and more confident, more in tune with my true self and with the Universe. These sessions gave me a clearer sense of purpose and determination to live the best life I can. I whole-heartedly recommend Janne Gibbs to anyone who is searching for ways to manage painful conditions and/or who want to explore their own life’s purpose. Testimonial # 2 (Karen R, 63 yo, disabled RT severe Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, CTS, chronic pain): I unexpectedly had an incredibly painful nerve flair in my wrist as a result of untreated carpal tunnel. The pain flared from a 2 level to a 10+ level in a manner of seconds. The only other time I have used a pain level of 10 was with kidney stones. This pain was definitely worse than that and I was literally screaming, crying and running around not knowing what to do with this unbelievable pain. I got in touch with Janne Gibbs because I knew she was both a FNP and an energy healer and I knew she could help if anyone could. Janne immediately proceeded with Healing Touch and because of her extensive experience, she knew she had to increase the distance between us to affect a positive change. She continued doing Healing Touch and the pain calmed down to a livable level of 3-4 which was good until I could see my doctor that day and get a steroid injection. I was literally going out of body and mind due to nerve pain and Janne knew exactly what had to be done, right in the moment. I will never forget that incidence and I know I can count on Janne for help with acute pain. I have also lived with chronic pain for 20 years and I highly recommend Janne to anyone experiencing acute or chronic pain. She has an extensive array of education, specialized training and experience that truly covers a wide range of modalities that will fit just about any problem I may have. Most importantly, Janne has compassion and kindness in her approach which I find calming and reassuring.
