New COVID-19 Protocols


New protocols are in place in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  In order to provide a safe and healthy environment for all my clients and our families and to be in compliance will local health regulations, the following procedures will be a part of all future visits during the pandemic.

  • Text me when you park your car.  Please wait in your car until I text you to enter
  • Wear a mask that covers both mouth and nose (must be worn during the entire visit)
  • Temperature check upon entry (if above 100*, we will need to reschedule your appointment)
  • Application of hand sanitizer
  • Screening questions relative to COVID-19 symptoms
  • All areas will be thoroughly disinfected between each client

Thank you for your cooperations during these challenging times.  Stay safe and be well

Rate Increase Effective February 2020

Over the years Joy has maintained the same rate schedule with no increases in an effort to keep your sessions as affordable as possible.  Expenses associated with operating a business continue to rise annually and has forced Joy to raise rates and remove certain discounts starting February 1, 2020.  Thank you for understanding this necessary increase.

Emmett Technique

On October 31, 2019, Joy was certified as an Emmett Technique practitioner.  This technique is another method to provide relief from pain and discomfort using light touch.  See the Services page for more information.  You will be amazed at how quickly your body responds to this gentle technique!

Scar Release Technique

Joy now offers a remarkable scar release technique that improves scar sites caused by planned or unplanned surgeries and injuries.   In only 1-3 visits, old or new scars will soften, sensation can be restored, and restrictions released.  This may be included in your Bowenwork session or done as a stand alone appointment. 

Practitioner Certification Classes

In early 2017, Joy will begin teaching full certification modules in the Greater Los Angeles area.  For program details, click here.  Continuing Education credits are available for selected disciplines.
