How does Joy help you heal?

Healing touch, intuitive insight, healing hands, passion and compassion are gifts that Joy brings to each client she sees. She provides an environment of safety, caring and support that promotes natural healing and trust. You’ll be gently guided to a greater awareness of your role in wellness and your own ability to make empowering choices through experiencing the wide variety of healing arts Joy offers.

The focus during a session is on balancing your energy and helping you discover the relationship between body, mind and spirit in your healing process and helping you release blocks in these areas. Joy is experienced and trained in many holistic, natural healing techniques including: Healing Touch, Allergy Repatterning™, intuition, Applied Kinesiology (muscle testing), aromatherapy, Biogenesis healing tools, releasing etheric (unseen) energies, and more.

What will you experience?

  • Warm welcome
  • Nurturing with soft music, soothing colors and pleasing aromas (with oils)
  • Setting goals for the session
  • Lying down on a massage table (fully clothed)
  • Assessment of your energy system
  • Gentle touch or hands moving near the body
  • Relaxing natural healing experience
  • Less pain or faster healing and more
  • Feedback and self-care suggestions

During the session, she’ll share insights, energetic patterns or suggestions for self-care and greater empowerment that may accelerate your healing process. As your energy begins flowing better, you may notice a feeling of deep relaxation or peace. By the end of a session, typical client responses are, “Wow! That’s amazing! The pain is gone. I feel lighter and more relaxed.”

Energy Healing Is So Relaxing!

Even if it’s been years after an accident, you may experience relief from pain or greater ease of movement. Individuals express surprise when Joy asks if they’ve had an injury to a specific part of their body when they haven’t mentioned it. You can make significant shifts in just one or two sessions when you become aware of the multi-faceted aspects of your healing process. What you might initially think of as an isolated physical pain or injury, may, in fact, show improvement after releasing emotional energy or making changes in a life situation.

Healing Touch and other energy healing also can be done while you’re seated or in a hospital bed. Sessions usually are from 60-90 minutes. Shorter sessions are usually best for children, the very elderly or those in hospitals or hospices.

What is Healing Touch?

Healing Touch is an energy-based healing system used either as an effective complement to conventional health care or as stand-alone support for wellness. The practitioner’s hands are placed, on or near the body, to balance, vitalize and align the flow of energy. Healing Touch can relieve pain and stress, promote faster recovery from injuries and surgery, and facilitate healing of body, mind and spirit.

Janet Mentgen, RN founded Healing Touch in 1989. It is an international program of  energy healing with a rigorous training and certification process and a professional Scope of Practice and Code of Ethics. It was the first energy therapy to offer a certification program to practitioners. Healing Touch is endorsed by the American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA).

Healing Touch is taught and practiced around the world. It is accepted and used in hospitals, hospice care centers, long term care facilities, private practices and integrative health centers. Teams of doctors and nurses combine medical skills with hands-on healing and energy techniques in most major U.S. cities.

Extensive research has been supported and/or funded by hospitals, universities, professional organizations, private foundations and the National Institute of Health, Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

What are the benefits of Healing Touch?

Research suggests that Healing Touch is extremely beneficial to the health and well-being of the body, mind and spirit.  Healing Touch:

  • Reduces pain
  • Relieves stress, anxiety and depression
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Enhances recovery from surgery and injuries
  • Provides support during chemotherapy
  • Reduces the effects of trauma
  • Creates a sense of well-being
  • Promotes a deeper spiritual connection
  • Supports the dying process

What is the human energy system?

Common words for human energy include chi or ki, life force and prana. Everyone feels this energy in subtle ways. For example, you may know when someone is coming near you even though you can’t see or hear her yet. You may take a step away from an individual who has just moved closer to you, or you may get a “creepy” or uncomfortable feeling in one area or with a group of people. You know when something feels good or energizing to you or when it feels heavy or tiring. If our energy is low, we are more likely to feel stressed, depressed or ill. If it is high, we feel better, happier and more positive. Everything we and others think, say, do and feel affects our energy system.

The human energy system is comprised of:

  • Biofield (aura) around the body
  • Energy centers (chakras)
  • Energy tracts (meridians)

What is distance healing?

Distance healing is an energy-based technique for connecting with someone who isn’t physically present and effecting a positive change in their state of health or wellness. Since energy is not affected by time or space, healing can occur over great distances. You can think of distance healing a little like prayer. We pray with people in person, and we offer prayers for others who may be in far away places. They are equally effective.

Distance healing is done by:

  • Doing a phone consultation,
  • Using intent,
  • Setting a pre-arranged time, or
  • Choosing  a surrogate for the client.

The focus is on:

  • Clearing the energy system,
  • Connecting,
  • Balancing and
  • Revitalizing it.

Distance healing sessions are usually one hour including feedback and work the same way as face to face.

How does surgery support work?

For maximum benefits, surgery support consists of four sessions. One (or more) is recommended just prior to the surgery. One is done on site at the hospital or surgical center, either in the operating room (with the physician’s permission) or as soon after surgery as hospital procedures allow. Healing Touch and a focused intent keeps the patient (and staff) calmer and keeps the energy balanced and cleared. It also helps clear the after effects of the anesthesia quicker and reduces the pain. Two more sessions at the hospital or at home will facilitate recovery and allow the wound to heal quicker.

What is Allergy Repatterning™?

Allergy Repatterning™ (AR) is a gentle, unique and amazingly effective method of energy healing that clears allergy-like symptoms quickly and naturally. Most people get significant allergy relief for one or more allergens within one day of a session. Developed by Joy Heartsong after her recovery from debilitating allergies, AR is effective with all types of allergies and with people of all ages.

To find the specific allergy, Joy uses a combination of intuition and applied kinesiology (muscle testing). Then with her hands, she stimulates and clears energy at different acupressure points while the client holds the substance being treated. Finally, Joy uses Healing Touch and other energy healing therapies, as needed, to increase the energy flow in the body and to balance body, mind, spirit and emotions.

What are the benefits of Allergy Repatterning™?

  • Provides long-lasting, fast relief from wheezing, sneezing, itching, pain and other symptoms
  • Works with all ages and all allergies
  • Identifies troublesome allergies
  • Allows you to eat your favorite foods and visit pet-owning friends/family comfortably
  • Increases energy and clarity
  • Uses no needles―no drugs
  • Easy, gentle treatments

How does this allergy technique work?

An allergy-like response is related to a dysfunctional immune system.  When the immune system is not functioning optimally, it may overreact to certain foods, chemicals found in many products, environmental substances such as weeds, trees, pollens and grasses, animals, household cleaners, carpets, building materials and even metals. This results in a variety of unpleasant and, sometimes, life threatening conditions.

After the session, the client avoids the substance for about 24 hours. In this short time, the individual’s autoimmune response is repatterned allowing the body to accept the substance without reacting to it or having any ill effects (except for toxic materials which should continue to be avoided, of course).  To date, no one has needed to be retreated when they have done their 24 hour follow through.

Lavender Essential Oil

How does aromatherapy support health and wellness?

Aromatherapy is a technique using essential oils to:

  • Promote relaxation
  • Detoxify
  • Relieve stress and fatigue
  • Balance and strengthen the energy and immune systems

Joy uses therapeutic-grade essential oils from organic plants which are the most beneficial in promoting emotional, physical and spiritual healing. Many of the essential oils have anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-septic and/or anti-tumoral properties.

Essential oils have promoted good health since ancient times. The Bible makes many references to the use of essential oils for supporting health and wellness. Frankincense and myrrh were valued equally with gold, the gifts the wise men took to the Christ child. They were used for anointing and healing the sick. Jesus was also anointed with spikenard oil.

Other oils are effective in cleansing and purifying the air or repelling insects. Some are great substitutes for expensive perfumes. Perfume grade oils do not promote better health and can, in some cases, be toxic.

Oils may be applied in a variety of ways. When using essential oils, always consult a qualified health practitioner or a trusted reference guide to find the safest and most effective application. Examples include:

  • Topically to the feet, ears, other areas of the skin or along the spine referred to as Raindrop Technique
  • By inhalation, adding oil to a diffuser or a cloth, tissue or pillowcase
  • By ingesting oils labeled as GRAS (generally regarded as safe) by the FDA
