Joy Pacetti, CMT

Joy’s Healing Philosophy 

I believe that each person has an inner guidance that knows what is needed to bring healing and balance to the body. This inner guidance knows all the events, traumas, stresses, and emotions that are stored, often in the fascia. My bodywork is informed by using my hands as a tool to tune in and create a collaboration with this guidance. This allows for the release of muscle tension patterns and greater vitality throughout the body. What I love about this approach is that it is always honoring of my client’s wisdom. I can sense when it’s appropriate to use a lighter or deeper pressure to support the body in its healing. The benefit of this is lasting results, treating pain patterns and other structural dysfunctions skillfully in a way that does not over-tax the nervous system and creates more calm and ease to all of the systems of the body.
