Juva Health was founded by Herbert Ong (CEO), Philip Cheung (CTO), John Brodish (Product Designer & Manager) and clinical psychologist and headache expert Dawn Buse (Chief Medical Officer) in October 2019.
Juva’s first product, Juva for Migraine, is an app that provides self-administered biofeedback therapy and predictive analytics to people with migraine. Designed by medical professionals and headache experts, it aims to be the No. 1 go-to, non-drug, self-care treatment for people with migraine worldwide.

Juva’s mission is to empower people to take control of their pain and well-being. We are a purpose-driven company aiming to provide the world’s most effective self-care treatment.
