Caring for People who Care for Others


Intuitive Energy Work

“I love coming to Joy.  Her ability to intuitively sense exactly what I need leaves me feeling well cared for.  The amazing balance of her vast knowledge and experience coupled with her gentle demeanor allows me to recommend her to my family, friends and clients.” ~Vicki D.

“I’ve been working with Joy for about four years now.  The first experience I had was reflexology.  While Joy was working on my feet, we began talking, and I informed her that I was recently diagnosed with ADHD.  This began a whole new learning experience for me.  Joy taught me that there are certain ways to control and reduce your ADHD.” 

 “Throughout the past four years, I’ve also done energy work with Joy.  In these sessions we’ve discussed how ADHD can be a gift because it makes us unique.  Also, once you’ve found your true calling in life, you don’t need medications because your passion allows you to focus.  Joy has also introduced me to certain angels, who I pray to when I need to focus or just need a little extra help.”

 “Overall, I’ve grown a lot from the work I’ve done with Joy.  She’s referred me to excellent books and people.  It’s always a blessing when I spend time with her.”   – Liz Barta

“Joy does work wonders, in a 10 minute foot session, she got completely rid of shoulder pain that I was going to go to the doctor for! She asked me just by touching my feet if I had been having bad pain in my right shoulder and I told her yes, I was amazed cas I hadn’t told a soul about the pain I had…can we say amazing? Lol   You have a gift and it did wonders for me! 🙂 I haven’t felt pain in my shoulder since!” ~ Lauren Birsa, CNA, Angels Grace Hospice

“I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the Bio Touch session. My hip felt much better afterwards. I have to say you offered as much relief as my mom’s massage and the chiropractor I saw today (maybe even more!) Keep up the your wonderful work. ~Jeanette Joy

“I recently had the pleasure of experiencing reflexology sessions from Joy. I had never done this before, so I did not know what to expect. I found it very relaxing and also very interesting! A few times when Joy pressed on certain spots on the foot, I could feel something in other parts of my body, like an electric charge. I really felt the “connection” between the feet and other parts of the body. Afterward, I felt relief in some of my problem areas, and I decided to do it again. The second session was also a good experience and I know I will schedule more!”  ~Judi N.

 “Thanks for letting me participate in giving a testimonial. Being a healthcare professional I am constantly on my feet daily. When visiting Joy it’s a time for rejuvenation and rest. My feet are massaged where swelling is reduced that I can walk barefooted on the floor and because I have developed a whopper bunion on my right foot it causes me pain along the arch with massage it relieves the burning,helps my throat and causes my sciatic nerve to calm down. Joy listens to my pains and applies pressure where most needed, my feet feel in tune and so does my well being with relaxing music to calm I’m in the right place in the hands of Joy, what a healing partner.”  ~Rebecca R.
