The Body is the most dense expression of our being.  In it we carry the Divine Spark of our origin, our ancestral genetic memories, our wounds, traumas and memories of this lifetime. 

I believe that when we serve our body by offering it intentional care, nourishment, sacred touch, movement and attention to what it reveals to us through pain and discomfort, we will transcend the energetic toxic load that keeps us in a state of low vibration and ill health.  

When we Release Our Bodies, We Raise Our Vibration!

And at JoyRisingZA we lean into powerful bodywork modalities that easily  energizes and detoxifies the physical, emotional and energetic systems of the body.  

These modalities include :

*Shiatsu / Acupressure

*Energy Rebalancing and

*Light Touch Aromatherapy


*Movement Meditation 

Supporting these modalities are:

*Essential Oils (Certified Pure Tested Grade)

*Oracle Card Readings

*Essential Oil Readings

*Spiritual Life Coaching



Embodiment  is a method of using the unique sensations of our body as a tool to develop awareness, stay present, self-regulate, feel whole, find balance, feel connected, know ourself, love ourself and be empowered.

 In essence, it is a practice where we learn the language of the body, allowing it to inform and contain our presence and sense of self.

Movement Meditation refers to meditation practices or exercises that energize the body and mind through calm and purposeful breathing or movement. It lets us experience the sensations of the body as well as gravity and energy as embodied phenomena.  

Integrating embodiment with gentle movement meditation such as Qi Gong, is one of my favourite ways to help clients release old patterns that no longer serves them.  



Shiatsu, directly translated from Japanese means "finger pressure".  It is a combination of pressure with gentle but firm massage strokes along meridian lines and passive stretching. 

Working on similar principles to acupressure and acupuncture, Shiatsu uses the application and leverage of the therapist’s thumbs, palms, knees and elbows onto pressure points around the client’s body – from head to toes.  These offer varying degrees of pressure, depending on the needs and comfort of the client. 

It is a holistic healing method, which helps balance the body’s energy flow, supporting the process of self-healing.

Joy is passionate about spreading the word of the incredible birthing ability of the human body, educating society as a whole around this spiritual, sacred and powerful event, as well as encouraging women towards a natural existence from birth and beyond. 

She views birth as a sacred passage into empowered womanhood and femininity - from Maiden to Mother - and longs for the day society arms women of every age, culture and ethnicity with the knowledge of their innate birthing power, rather than fear it.

Joy is drawn to all things natural and attempts to incorporate this worldview in her dealings with clients, friends and family.  Particular added aspects of her services include Essential Oil Education and Shiatsu Massage Therapy.
