About this pro

If you have never experienced Acupuncture or Chinese Medicine, Dr. Joy is the person you want to see! Her gentle style, calm and attentive nature, clinical effectiveness, sense of humor, and over 16 years of practice make for the most healing and restorative treatments you can experience.

Dr. Joy successfully treats all kinds of pain: orthopedic and sports injuries, repetitive use injuries, sprains, strains, motor vehicle injuries, slip and fall injuries with Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.

She also specializes in treating stress, anxiety, and the side-effects of chemotherapy and radiation.

Before you know it, the needles are placed, you are relaxed and comfortable with soft blankets all around, and when the treatment is finished you will awake refreshed and ready for the rest of the day.

I love the one-on-one interaction with my patients. I get to know them at a deeply personal level and I love having them start to recover and find the Joy in life again.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

The first session will be about 75 minutes and will include time for assessment, diagnosis, and a brief treatment. Assessment can be orthopedic exams, pulse diagnosis, tongue diagnosis, and gathering information about the issue and the patient.

Diagnosis may be either Chinese or orthopedic diagnosis, based on the individual.

Treatment can include acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping, gua sha, advanced LED light therapy, or brief Chinese medical massage.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I received both my Master's and Doctorate from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, a total of 7 years of education in the field. In addition I interned under my mentor for 4 years, and am required to complete 50 continuing education hours every 2 years.

I am constantly reading and taking courses to improve my skills.
