Hands-On Bodywork

You don’t have to take your clothes off…

All my Bodywork treatments are done through comfortable loose clothing. This might sound strange but I’m working with the energy systems of your body, and that can be felt more clearly through clothing without the distraction of skin contact.

I qualified as a Shiatsu Practitioner and Craniosacral Therapist in 1994 and have always blended both disciplines when treating clients. Shiatsu is based on an Eastern Medicine model and Craniosacral therapy is based on a Western medical model. This means I’ve become skilled at looking at a person’s health from at least 2 different perspectives. Over the years I’ve trained in many other health related disciplines, some aspects of which I may include in treatments as appropriate.

This gives me a truly holistic approach when solving people’s health puzzles. This broad knowledge base also means I can confidently refer to other disciplines if my range of tools and skills isn’t going to be suitable for your needs.

“I’m convinced that Joy has magic hands”

The only discipline I sometimes use alone without mixing it with other approaches is Jin Shin Jyutsu. This is because is works at a different level within the body – ‘reaching parts other hands-on approaches can’t reach’.
