About Janice Hofmann

I am a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and loving mother of five boys. I decided to become a health coach to fulfill my passion of working with professionals who are having issues with weight loss, sugar addiction, stress, and fatigue.

I received my training at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York City and I am certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories; everything from Ayurveda, gluten-free, and Paleo, to raw, vegan, and macrobiotics, and everything in between.

I have a broad spectrum of interests; I am an artist, a Ki massage practitioner and a registered yoga teacher. I lead workshops on nutrition, as well as creative team building, to individuals and corporate groups. My education has equipped me with extensive, cutting-edge knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and prevention.

Maharishi Ayurveda

Ayurveda is the world's most ancient system of preventive health care. Developed in India over 6,000 years ago. Ayurveda (which translates as "knowledge of life") is a natural approach for creating balance and strengthening the body's healing abilities.

What is Maharishi Ayurveda?
Over time and with the foreign domination of India, the comprehensive knowledge of Ayurveda became fragmented and lost. Recently, working together with the foremost Ayurveda experts in India, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the Transcendental Meditation program (TM), systematized and restored Ayurveda, along with all the other branches of Vedic knowledge, to its purity and completeness in accord with classic Vedic texts.

How does Maharishi Ayurveda work?
Maharishi Ayurveda enlivens the inner intelligence of the body and strengthens its natural healing ability. According to Ayurveda, disease is primarily the result of imbalances and impurities that accumulate in the body over time. The specialty of Ayurveda is in diagnosing imbalances at an early stage—before symptoms of disease arise, eliminating those imbalances from the body and teaching each person how to live a healthy, balanced life.

Ki Massage - Blissful Bodywork

Ki Massage is a hands on firm but gentle massage. Using the flow of positive energy with the rhythmic massage, stress, tension and soreness dissolves at deep levels and energy for good physical and mental health is freed up. After a treatment the body feels lighter much more relaxed and revitalized. This in turn allows the mind to calm, thinking becomes clearer and concentration improves.

Dynamic Movement

Feeling stuck trying to find a way to move your body that feels good? Dynamic movement is non-impact and it combines principles of earthy dance, gentle kundalini yoga and qigong to energize, tone and ignite the desire to move your body more. Side effects include increased sense of grace, balance and sensuality.

    "I feel like a different person! I have much more energy and interest in doing more things. My top goals were to lose weight, feel better with more energy and to develop higher self-esteem. Janice helped me achieve all these things in the three months I have been having sessions with her. Janice gave me a lot of encouragement, directing me in the right steps to lose weight and feel great. Coaching made a big difference in my success. I would recommend Janice to my friends and family and anyone else who is ready to change the way they feel for the better."

  • "...she was supportive, friendly and understanding."

    "Janice helped me meet my weight loss goal as well as my goal to look and feel better. An extra bonus of the program was meeting Janice - she was supportive, friendly and understanding. Janice helped me correct my thought process from thinking of the program as a diet to more of a life change to carry forward with me. I would recommend this program to everyone!"

    Shelley | Chico, CA
  • "It is a very empowering and positive experience."

    "Janice is a very valuable resource for people who know they want to make a change in their lifestyle, but just do not know how to proceed. My patients are feeling better, losing weight, and taking control of their own health! It is a very empowering and positive experience."

    Whitney Dixon, MD | Chico, CA
  • " doctor said it was the best results he’d seen ever."

    "Janice has been extremely empathetic, insightful, encouraging and also able to call me on “the carpet” when needed. The biggest tangible change I have noticed is how I’ve viewed food. Now I eat with thought and with sensibility. I would recommend Janice to anyone looking to lose weight and keep it off, using healthy food. My last blood panel I had done – my doctor said it was the best results he’d seen ever."
