" The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly."

As a practitioner I invoke the utmost respect for my client’s well-being and trust. I began my journey of curiosity for alternative health and healing in the early 90’s while still a high school student. I spent most of my time seeking out and learning herbal remedies, the benefit of healthy food and vitamin intake, as well as experimenting with energetic healing.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Joy is amazing! I'm so relaxed during her massages that I've caught myself snoring several times, and I NEVER sleep during massages! My wife is even considering switching from her current massage therapist of the last 5 years to Joy- or at the very least using Joy for when her current therapist is booked.
