Inspiring the Joy of Health

About the Practitioner

Joy has been a practicing massage therapist since 1991. She is also a Registered Nurse with a background in intensive care, home health, case management and disease management. Joy has had the opportunity to learn a myriad of gentle, non invasive techniques which she employs to stimulate the body's innate healing processes. She opened Chrysalis Healing Arts in January 2012 in order to practice the healing arts fulltime.
