Meet Joy

Joy Black

Hello, I’m Joy. I have studied natural healing practices for eighteen years, traveled to China and Thailand to study more, and transformed my own life in a call to minister to others. Like you, there have been aspects of my life that have needed healing.​

I worked a high-stress career for nearly 40 years​, in small business, corporate, and entrepreneurial settings, so I understand what stress can do to your body, mind and spirit… To your heart, brain, liver, adrenals, and kidneys… Your sleep, nutrition, energy level, back, and joints… Your morale, attitude, mental and emotional self. At my lowest point, I experienced only about two hours a day in which my mind could focus and my body had enough energy to work. It was through Qigong therapy and self-care, and dedication to mind-body practices that I found healing.

The holistic practices that I offer are the same ones that have given me new life – physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. I am honored to share them with you now. I have been a creative spirit since childhood, and have enjoyed formal studies and a career in art for nearly 40 years. This creativity is inherent in all that I do and I love bringing it into classes and therapy sessions.

Healing, by Joy Black

Healing is a process. It is not always a “cure,” but it is always getting to a different, usually better, place. Healing is holistic: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Often, what feels like physical pain has its origin in emotions or spirit. Emotional pain can be caused by something physical. Our bodies are miraculous in their innate self-healing wisdom.

Our role in healing is to assist, then get out of the way. We can do that by learning good self-care practices and recognizing that everything is energy: food, thoughts, money, verbal expression, attitudes, beliefs, and the people and environment around us. Usually, we must invite some kind of change into our lives in order to heal.

I will work with you in a holistic way to find the source of your pain or discomfort. Many people feel better after just one class or treatment; others see that they must take time to patiently and lovingly peel away layers of imbalance and pain. Whatever your situation, know that I will appreciate your trust, value your confidentiality, and bring all that I have to assist you with your own self-healing.
