Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Joy was warm & easy to talk to about my pain & needs. I left my myofascial release appointment feeling absolutely amazing! Will return & definitely recommend A healing haven!

    Joy was a professional and skilled therapist. The environment was welcoming and geared to a healing experience. The session was restorative and just what I needed.

  • What a great way to heal, reset, rest and bring your body back into its natural state of being.

    The therapist was wonderful. Just the type of person that I would have wanted to meet for my first experience with Myofascial Release Massage. She did a great job and I'm very grateful to her for the care she provided. I have not yet decided if I will return based on my initial reaction to the location (room not building) where the treatment was provided.

  • Joy is marvelous.

    Joy has a wealth of experience in her field. She is professional and the work she does is very reassuring. After each session I notice marked improvement and a sense of well being. Thank you Joy.

  • Joy was very welcoming and made sure to understand what treatment was needed. This really shows that she truly cares and takes pride in her work. I will definitely be recommending her to others.

    I was very pleased with the massage service I received. I’ve had a pinched nerve in my arm for several month and she was able to “fix” that, so it no longer is causing me pain. I woke up for the first time in a very long time with no pain in my back and hips. She wore a mask during the service amd provided a very clean and safe environment, which is so important during the pandemic.

  • I loved the relaxing feel of the space, and the quality of work. Joy clearly communicated a plan to address my specific requests. I am definitely coming back for any body work needs!

    It was a wonderful massage.

As a recent graduate of MFR 1 I wanted to find a local practitioner for some personal areas of pain and alignment. After just 2 sessions with Joy, two areas of concern have started to unwind, my left knee and right shoulder. Signed up for a series!

I've seen Joy 5 times over the last 6 weeks for Myofacial Release Therapy. Joy takes her profession seriously and works hard at continuing her education to better serve her clients. Her desire to help you feel better is genuine and she has the technical knowledge and skills to help you improve your quality of life. Her prices are reasonable and her manner is gentle. If you want to move your body easier, Joy will help you get there.
