Massage therapist and holistic body practitioner offering advanced manual therapy and mentoring services.
Those who know me as Karen may be surprised to see me identified as Joy. This is my middle name which I am shifting to as my preferred name. The quiet of gentle touch can elicit profound opportunities for healing. Using advanced manual therapy skills which draw techniques from a variety of specialities, body work is offered to assist with shifting painful symptoms and increasing mobility. Touch used at a soft interface allows the body to tell its story of pain, trauma or injury. Joy's skilled hands use this information to support the person's inherent blueprint for correction and healing.Read More

By touching a body, we touch every event that has impacted it. For a few brief moments we hold all of a client's stories in our hands. We witness someone's experience of their own flesh, through some of the most powerful means possible: the contact of our hands, the acceptance of their body without judgement, and the occasional listening ear. With these gestures, we reach across the isolation of human experience and hold another person's legend. In massage therapy, we show up and ask in so many ways, "What is it like to be another human being?" In doing so we build a bridge that may heal us both.
